Spray Bark Collars – Safest Way To Lessen Nuisance Barking

Dogs bark for numerous reasons: fear, separation anxiety, protective attitude and reaction to other animals. This characteristic is inborn but should be trained out to avoid extreme noise. If you have a dog that seems to bark unstoppably, there is a solution - spray bark collars. It has been used by many dog owners to successfully train their dogs to lessen barking at the wrong times. It’s normal for a dog to bark but when the barking is nonstop, you must put a stop to it. The dog must learn that it’s only ok to bark in specific situations and not all the time.

What Is Bark Collar?

A bark collar is a corrective tool used to deter a dog's unnecessary and inappropriate barking. You just put the bark collar around the animal's neck and activate a battery-powered unit containing a small microphone. As soon as your dog starts barking, the microphone triggers the correction. The goal is to teach the dog to associate excessive barking with instant negative feedback.

One of the most common types of bark collar is the spray collars work. It works by releasing a citronella solution towards your dog’s nose the moment it begins to bark. It is also known as citronella bark collar. Dogs don’t like the feeling, the smell or the sound of the citronella mist. The dog will soon relate the citronella with the barking and the barking will eventually decreased. Many dog owners and pet specialists considered this device as the best alternative to other types of anti-bark collar.

The best thing about this dog bark collar is it’s painless and harmless. It is twice more effective than shock bark collar which is often nothing more than a source of pain and annoyance. Citronella affects four out of five senses, but it‘s not evident for human nose. So, you won‘t have problems smelling some stinky spray in your citronella dog bark collar.

This collar uses citronella that is also known as an effective natural insect repellent. It can help mosquito, fleas and ticks. When you are planning to buy spray bark collar for your dog, you have to consider its size and temper. The citronella bark collar might work better for all dog breeds that are more anxious. Just make sure you read the bark collar manufacturer’s recommendations on the weight of the dog to make sure that the bark collar is suitable for your dog.

You can find several brands of spray bark collars, such as PetSafe, Innotek and Multivet to name a few. It is very much necessary to understand the differences between these models and the brands before choosing the best one. Some factors that you should take into account are the dog’s size and breed, as well as the collar’s size, battery length, range, weight, and of course, look.
