    Bark Collars?

    My two year old Dolberman barks whenever someone goes by our house, wants attention, ect. Anyone tried a bark collar? Do they work? Any advice will help.

    Re: Bark Collars?

    My wife and I have a smaller dog and the bark collar has worked pretty well. Getting a bark collar was something we were pretty hesitant to do, but after getting some nasty messages from our apartment we felt like we had little choice. He has started to get to the point now where once we put the collar on him he knows that if he barks it is going to shock him, and he just does a small little grumble sound when he hears a noise outside. Every once in a while he will still try and bark but it will shock him once and he will not try it again. One thing of advice is make sure that the collar is centered on the neck or the dog can move the collar and its less effective.

    If you don't like the idea of a shock collar, they make collars that spray citronella instead. I guess dogs hate the smell of citronella so it's supposed to have the same effect. I don't know from experience but that's what I've heard.

    We used one on our dog when she was younger because she would just bark at us constantly, it worked great, and fixed the issue. One thing to remember is you are always supposed to supervise the dog while it is on, if it gets stuck on and you aren't there it will not be a very pleasant experience.

    Good Luck!
