As much as we may love our dogs, an excessively loud and frequent bark can get on some people's nerves. If training and basic discipline hasn't worked, it could be time to try something else. Barking collars are a relatively new invention that you can now consider as a means of training your dog and preventing unnecessary noise. These collars come in a variety of styles, sizes and variations, so you can choose one on eBay today that suits you and your four legged friend.
What types are available?
Dog owners can choose from automatic, ultrasonic, remote controlled or citronella producing dog collars. Automatic collars have a sensor built in that is able to detect when your dog is barking, and produce a shock, vibration or high frequency noise to surprise your dog and deter him from continuing. These can just be attached like regular dog collars .
Remote controlled electric collars involve the dog owner manually activating the vibration and noise whenever the dog barks or behaves badly. This is good to consider if your dog also runs away.
Citronella producing dog collars produce a small, harmless burst of spray to similarly deter your pup from making any more noise.
Are they safe?
As electric dog collars produce small shocks, vibration, sound and harmless sprays, they are not generally considered to be painful or harmful to your dog if used correctly. However, dog owners with particularly sensitive dogs tend to sway towards collars without shock.
Which one should I get?
Dog collars come in varying sizes depending on breed and size of dog, so make sure you choose one that will provide the correct level of vibration and noise to be effective.
With a bit of research and planning, you'll be able to find a safe and effective way to make sure your beloved pet isn't causing anyone any headaches. Check out the wide range available on eBay! And don't forget to reward your pet with presents he or she really wants, like dog treats, dog bowls and dog beds!
