Are bark Collars cruel?

The Bark Controller collar is the most humane & highly effective model on the market, designed to give your dog a Vibration or Tone pre warning and distracting static stimulation to stop nuisance barking instantly. You cannot have a dog and expect it to never bark, but nuisance barking now that’s a different story.

Nuisance barking is one of the most common dog behaviour problems. A responsible dog owner can stop a dog barking by using our barking collar; it is a proven safe and effective tool to train any dog from barking inappropriately.

The Bark Controller comes pre-set with Vibration and correction level 2 as standard, this correction level is similar to the “Static” you get when you touch a car door, it’s just above most dog’s comfort zone so it distracts the dog to stop excessive barking but if needs be can go up to level 8 for very headstrong dogs. After a few corrections, the dog will realize that the correction is caused by the barking. The dog will then resist the urge to bark at normal neighbourhood activities. Then in some cases if required it can be set to level”0” which is vibration only. So, owners can plan ahead on how to train their dog in avoiding nuisance barking.

For example, some customers put the collar on every night consistently, this will change the dog’s behavioural pattern. After a few weeks, they will remove the bark collar and satisfied with the result. Others do a weekly refresher, which is very effective because it will remind the dog about the training. However, some dog owners leave the bark collar on at times when they go out or they know the dog will start the barking. It is all dependent to the dog’s drive when it comes to barking.(avoid leaving the collar on the dog for over 12 hours per day and wash the dog’s neck area weekly)
