Petsafe® Bark Control

Advanced Petsafe Bark Collar Technology

The idea of attaching a bark collar to your dog can seem like an exaggerated measure for those who are unfamiliar with this subject. Nevertheless, there are many cases in which excessive barking can become a troublesome issue. Using a collar to diminish this problem has proven to be, in many cases, very effective.


  • The collar is practically similar to shock collars, except for the fact that, instead of being triggered remotely by the owner, it is usually triggered using a microphone or a vibration sensor that is able to “notice” when the dog starts barking and send an impulse to the animal. Through association, the dog then learns to stop barking.


    About Excessive Barking

     


    There are certain specific cases that can require the use of a bark collar and the reasons for the barking itself can vary greatly. In some cases, dogs get separation anxiety when they are separated from their owners and often make a lot of noise. The barking mostly begins a short time after the owner’s departure and can continue for quite some time after the dog realizes that his owner has left. Petsafe Bark Collars can be very helpful in this case as they can suppress the barking and save the dogs from the unnecessary effort added to their anxiety.


    Attention seeking can be another reason why a dog may bark too much. In this case, the animal seeks to gain praise or attention from his owner in case he feels that he is being ignored. Some dogs cling to their owners more than others and this behavior can quickly become tiresome both for the owner and for the animal itself. A Petsafe Bark Collar can therefore considerably reduce the tension in the atmosphere in this case as well.


    Dogs bark at many types of surrounding stimuli. This can often represent a reinforcing attitude. For example, when a delivery person arrives to drop off a package the dog may start barking continuously at the stranger and when he leaves the dog could in fact believe that he left as a result of the barking. This type of barking can become quite disruptive and since it is not a very good idea to keep “no postmen” signs around, a bark collar might just be the perfect solution.


    As we have seen, there are many reasons why a dog may start barking and, while they may not seem to make much sense to us, our pets often take them very seriously and see the excessive barking as a useful response. The reason for keeping the collars is then legitimate as it can eliminate much of the effort and discomfort of excessive barking. Let us look however at the means of reaching these results.


    Types of Petsafe Bark Collars

     


    A bark collar is extremely useful in certain circumstances, but is it safe for your pet in the long run? We can determine this fact by looking at the various kinds of collars available on the market and taking a closer look at how they really work.


    There are many bark control collars out there manufactured by various brands. While some work perfectly, others can be less effective in certain settings, for example going off because of certain sounds without the dog actually barking. Despite the fact that this problem is quite rare, it is still a good idea to keep a close eye as to what kind of device would be best choice in your own particular case.


    There are mainly three types of Petsafe Bark Collars: citronella collars, ultrasonic collars and electronic collars (which are usually considered to be the most popular ones). Each Petsafe Bark Collar basically works in the same way, creating a type of distraction that would capture the dog’s attention and guide it away from the event that triggered the barking.


    Citronella collars are quite unique when compared to other types. They practically send a slight spray of citronella towards the dog’s snout that distracts the animal and stops him from barking. Registering the new smell, the dog will then be curious about its source and will try to find it, forgetting about the reason why he had started to bark.


    Ultrasonic collars are based on the old concept of dog whistles. They create a high frequency sound when they register a bark. This often startles the dog to the extent that he will stop barking immediately. Eventually, the repeated sounds created by the Petsafe Bark Collar will influence the dog to make a mental association and this will break the habit of excessive barking.


    Electronic collars are usually the most effective ones. These collars detect the vibration of the dog’s vocal cords and when it exceeds a certain level they send a mild electric impulse just strong enough to stop the barking, but without causing any harm to the dog. There are many misconceptions around this type of bark collar regarding the fact that the electric shock might be too powerful, but in truth, electric bark control collars are actually seen as both safe and effective by most experts.


    Overview

     


    As you can see, there are very few hazards involved with bark control collars. Occasionally the possibility for a malfunction can of course arise, as is the case with virtually any device, but overall, the level of safety of these collars is considered by many experts to be more than appropriate.


    There are many myths and misconceptions that revolve around the idea of using a Petsafe Bark Collar. Some believe for example that prolonged exposure to the electrical stimulation created by a collar would cause health problems. Nevertheless, the power of the shocks is quite reduced and safe so the chances of a dog becoming ill as a result of wearing the collar for a long time are similar to those of you being electrocuted by the battery in your mp3 player. Some safety precautions are of course always necessary and you should usually read the manual (if provided) to know exactly how to use the collars properly. Generally, however, the entire process is simple and using a Petsafe Bark Collar will often effectively end all your pet’s problems related to excessive barking.
