    How A Dog Bark Shock Collar Works


    One of the most common problems that new dog owners face is teaching their pets not to bark at the wrong time. A bark shock collar is a good solution to the barking problem, but a lot of people object to them because the word "shock" brings them an image of electrocution.

    Dog owners have to realize that dogs understand things like "punishment" or "reward" in a different way that humans do. Unless you try to ‘correct’ or ‘punish’ your dog at the very time it is miss-behaving, it will not know why you are acting the way you are. Some new owners might feel that punishing a dog is morally wrong, without realizing that a dog's sense of punishment and resistance is much more different from humans, If the owner is berating the dog many minutes after the ‘offence’, the dog simply gets confused because it does not associate the punishment with the offence.

    Does a Bark Collar Work?

    A dog bark shock collar works by delivering a small static discharge to the dog's neck whenever it starts barking. The shock is instantaneous and since it happens when the dog barks, the dog is much more likely to make a better connection betweeen bad behavior and punishment. Once the dog makes the link between barking and punishment, it learns to stop the former to avoid the later. The dog is never really hurt or in pain by the shock; it's actually the confusion that makes it stop barking while it tries to figure out what happened.

    Since it's not painful, professionals agree that a dog bark shock collars is acceptable and efficient in teaching your dog to behave.

    Since the objective is to stop only inconvenient barking, a dog bark shock collar shouldn't be used more than 30 minutes a day, and only in situations where barking is inconvenient. Dogs are very smart animals and no more want to be punished than any other animal or person. If you simply follow the collar's instructions that come with it, you'll teach your dog not to bark unnecessarily in no time, and your neighbors will thank you for it.

    A bark shock collar has a reputation of being cruel. Nevertheless, the shock is rather harmless and panlessl and it only confuses the dog a little. On the other hand, using a dog bark shock collar will help you train your dog and avoid invonvenient barking.
