A Dog Barking Collar Keeps Your Dog From Nuisance Barking.

Author : Angelo Everton

If you're in peril, you and your neighbors are probably thankful to your dog's aggressive barking that alarms you of potential danger or a suspicious person within your territory. Conversely, too much nuisance from your dog can also get you in legal sanctions as it violates disturbance laws. In some places, it can even result in hefty fines for the owners. But with proper training along with the use of a dog barking collar, you can definitely spare yourself from facing these troubles while correcting your dog's troublesome behavior. To effectively discourage your dog from excessive barking without causing any harm, a citronella collar is highly recommended.

Identifying the cause of barking is always ideal before restraining your pet from expressing his behavior. It may be due to boredom, hunger, or irritability to the environment. However, if you do not remedy the situation while providing the best comfort then a dog barking collar may be an option. A citronella collar is designed to safely address this nuisance problem. When your dog barks, there is a sense of vibration from his throat that triggers the collar to spray the strong smell of citronella. The offensive scent will eventually discourage the dog from too much barking.

When it comes to a dog barking collar, proper fit is always important. You should always consider buying a well-fitted collar that is neither too loose nor too tight for your dog. Having it too loose can derail your barking training, while a collar that is too tight can choke your dog while on it. Also, you have to keep in mind that bark control collars such as citronella collar should not be left on the dog for a long period of time as it can irritate your dog's skin especially when worn for more than 12 hours a day. Ideally, you should think of the specific time when your dog barks the most and only by then should you put the collar on him.

Once your dog stops barking, you need to reinforce the learning with a treat or praise. Positive incentive is always a great training technique. Many pet owners resort to the use of a citronella collar to stop dogs from barking the fast and easy way. However, if bark control collars are used inappropriately, it can ironically worsen the problem. Typically, a 10 percent dilution of citronella is considered safe and harmless, but if your dog begins to experience skin allergies or respiratory problems, you should discontinue the use of a citronella dog barking collar and seek medical help from a veterinarian.

Coupled with positive barking training, a citronella collar is an efficient technique to discipline dogs from unnecessary barking. This type of a dog barking collar is essentially considered humane by most pet experts as there is no physical pain involved in the corrective action for barking, unlike e-collars. Nevertheless, pet owners must also understand that training a dog isn't always easy. Keeping trainings simple, fun, and rewarding for dogs will encourage them to successfully learn what you are teaching them.
