Have you ever used a bark collar on your dog?


Our dog is an extremely loud and obnoxious barker and we are surprised that we have not had complaints from the neighbors yet. Have you had any success fixing a barking problem and if so how?

    Thanks cdmwriter. I'll have to look into this one. If only our dog would just listen when we tell him not to bark! :-)

    I've seen the kind that squirt lemon scent too. I am also worried about the dog having barked too long. They are pretty pricey to go out buy one, but I think we will probably need to.

    What a sweet picture of your dog! Thanks.

    That is one thing I am worried about...that it can be hit or miss. I hate to spend all that money for something not to work. Thanks.

    Although I agree with you, there are some dogs, not breeds, just dogs, where positive reinforcement plain doesn't work. Intelligence and extreme stubbornness can make 100% positive reinforcement training impossible at times..

    Thanks Teamnins. I never thought about zapping another dog. We don't have one so it would not be a problem. I'm always amazed at how smart dogs can be.

    I'm glad to hear that just the beeps deter the dog. I fell like it would not be hurting my dog as much if he reacted the same way. Thanks for commenting.

    They are definitely not cheap which is why we are taking our time deciding. I'm getting some good help here.

    Part of our problem is that we want a quick fix and I think you are right...try some positive reinforcement. Thanks.
