Your guide to find the Best Anti Bark Collar to Stop That Barking Dog!
Basic Bark Control:
The most important thing to understand when it comes to stopping excessive barking, is that dog barking is a natural and instinctive dog behavior. Taking an aggressive approach that punishes your dog can result in a confused, traumatized animal. Shock collars that simply zap your dog in response to his bark put your dog at risk of undue stress and confusion. Thatís why itís important to select an anti-bark collar designed to teach dogs rather than punish them. Over many years, High Tech Pet has worked with nationally noted animal behaviorists, veterinarians and dog obedience trainers. Weíve incorporated input from breeders and sportsman to develop, a sophisticated bark training collar
that initiates a complete anti-bark training protocol teaching your pet to curtail his barking without punishing the normal bark response.
Whatís New and Different about Bark Control Collars made by High Tech Pet?
We manufacture both sonic, non shock, anti bark collars and progressive stimulus collars that use both sound and shock. Our Bark Buster and Hush Puppy no-bark collars use a very simple but persistent technique to cure your dogís barking problem. Each time your dog barks the collar emits a mild audible tone in direct response to the bark. Your dog may not even notice it at first but after a few days youíll notice that your dog is consistently being more selective about when he barks. Within a few weeks more than 90 percent of pet owners report that nuisance dog barking as stopped or significantly reduced to levels completely acceptable to the pet owners and their neighbors.
Our Super Hush Puppy bark collar goes a big step further by applying progressively increasing sonic stimulus. With each progressive bark the sound output of the Super Hush Puppy becomes a little more intense teaching your dog a corrective pattern. The result is a quicker, completely painless end to dog barking.
Our Bark Terminator collars use progressive shock stimulus with simultaneous progressive sound stimulus for the quickest results. Each time your dog barks he receives a mild shock with an accompanying tone. With each successive bark, both the shock and the tone become a little more intense. The pattern progresses through several correction levels quickly teaching your dog that barking must stop, now. This technique works quickly but the Bark Terminator wonít traumatize or confuse your dog. Because it starts out with mild stimulus and progressive through several correction levels, it actually letís your dog decide how much stimulus is enough to motivate a behavior change keeping it humane. Plus, the progressive sonic stimulus creates a greater perceived effect requiring less shock intensity. The Bark Terminator is the only electronic dog bark collar that uses progressive shock plus progressive tone stimulus. If youíre looking for the best bark collar made anywhere at any price, the Bark Terminator is the best bark collar for your dog.
What About Little Dogs?
Most people are under the mistaken impression that a little dog requires less stimulus to cure the barking problem than a big dog. In reality, if youíre considering an electronic dog bark control or an electronic dog fence collar, itís not the size of the dog, itís the dogís temperament that determines how much stimulus is enough to modify canine behavior. Thatís why our Super Hush Puppy and Bark Terminator collars with progressive stimulus are perfect for big dogs and little dogs alike. You donít need a special small dog bark collar. High Tech Pet anti-barking collars are small and lightweight to fit comfortably on small dogs and on big dogs and the advanced stimulus systems these bark control devices employ is just as effective for small dogs as it is for large dogs.
BARK COLLAR COMPARISON
There are nearly as many different bark collars available as there are dogs, Dogtra, Guardian, Innotek, Petsafe, Tri Tronics, Sportdog, Multivet and many others. Yet, the Hush Puppy and Bark Terminator brand name collars made by High Tech Pet Products stand alone for advanced engineering and true research into the behavioral techniques that stop barking the fastest while being the most humane. High Tech Pet bark stopping collars are waterproof. They give you the longest battery life and emit the loudest, most effective training tones. While there are many bark collar reviews published online, weíve presented a what we think is the most comprehensive bark collar review below to help guide you through the many types of bark collars available.
Ultrasonic Bark Collar vs. Sonic Bark Collar:
The choice here is very clear. Bark collars and other bark stopping devices that use audible tones work better than ultrasonic devices. Why? Although most people assume that dogs hear and respond to ultrasonic tones, the reality is that dogs donít hear in the ultrasonic range much better than humans. You may have noticed that if a you hear a tone of very high pitch you are not likely to perceive it as being very loud. The same is true of dogs. They may hear in a range a few kilohertz higher than humans but just like humans, dogs donít perceive high pitched tones as very intense. And, like humans, a dogís high frequency hearing degrades radically with age. Study after study has shown that sonic training devices work much better at canine behavioral modification than ultrasonic. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you avoid ultrasonic bark silencers. If your looking for a painless bark collar, chose one that uses audible sonic tones.
Sonic Bark Collar vs. Shock Collar:
If youíre like most people, you may assume that shock collars work better than sonic collars. This is partly true and partly untrue. Statistical studies show that about 90 percent of pet owners report excellent results with sonic bark collars. Surprisingly, about 90 percent of pet owners report excellent results with shock collars as well. Than why buy a shock collar? Thereís one and only one reason. They often work faster. But, we urge a strong note of caution. If you purchase a shocking bark control collar make sure itís a professionally engineered collar with hardware and software designed to TEACH NOT PUNISH. Our Bark Terminator collars do just that.
Citronella Bark Collar vs. Sonic Bark Collar:
Typically pet owners purchase sonic bark collars or citronella spray collars as a humane alternative to electronic shock collars. Both types provide painless bark control stimulus and both, assuming you purchase a well designed product, work about equally as well. The problem with citronella spray collars is that they cost at least twice the price of sonic bark collars and the replacement canisters are also quite expensive. In addition, we are not entirely convinced that spraying lemon juice in your dogís face is all that humane. Given a choice between the two, we recommend a sonic bark collar. Our Hush Puppy and Super Hush Puppy were the first sonic bark control collars on the market. We have continuously improved these models year by year as we develop new and improved bark control technology so we are quite confident when we represent to you that these sonic anti barking collars are the best made and most effective devices you can buy.
