Shock Collars – Toning Down Your Dog’s Barking

By Mary Victoria

Although barking is a completely normal behaviour for dogs, it can get excessive. Carla has a German Shepherd, Bronco, who is gentle inside her home and to her two pre-school kids. But the moment Bronco notices something move in their neighbor’s garden – the neighbour’s cats – he gets on a barking warpath. Something had to be done. Carla asked her friends who had similarly big dogs. They recommended shock collars.

A natural habit of dogs, barking, is at odds with many living conditions we have to put up with. Among them, no-bark ordinances enforced in many communities. Violating these result in fines. Add to that the stress owners experience when their dogs won’t shush. That creates tensions between neighbours. Carla wanted a dog training regimen that would provide quick and lasting results. As a mother of two, and with full-time work, she doesn’t have much time to spend on training Bronco.

Shock collars belong to a category of no bark collars that include spray and ultrasonic. The last two kinds release a chemical spray and a high-pitched sound, respectively. The sound is annoying only to dogs since humans can’t hear it. These no bark collars activate when your dogs bark. To discriminate between a bark and any other loud sound in the environment, high quality collars are activated by both the bark and vibrations from the dog’s throat.

Carla examined the various types and decided on the shock collar. The shock the dog receives is not painful, only startling, just enough to interrupt continuous barking. She gave the matter much thought, and concluded she need a collar that her dog couldn’t break; Bronco was big and playful. She was happy to find out, after a quick online search, that waterproof collars were available, with controls dog’s rowdy movements can’t tamper with.

The shock collar, to Carla’s relief, allows for the amping up of the intensity level of the electric shock; just in case Bronco adapts to the stimulus and barks despite it. Carla enjoys her time with her kids now, more so since Bronco became so behaved, all thanks to shock collars. Bronco’s present no-barking behaviour is getting him more attention compared to his previous behaviour.

Many dog owners get stressed out by their dogs’ non-stop barking. That problem behaviour won’t be a problem soon when you get shock collars. Shopping for reliable shock collars is easy – just hop online for many available products and customer reviews.
