Barking Collars

I recommend avoiding barking collars if you can, because they aren’t very much in keeping with the principles of positive training. That said, some dogs will respond to them when they don’t respond to this kind of training.

There are two kinds of anti-barking collar. One is electric, the other emits a scent – usually citronella. They are activated whenever the dog barks, at which time they give a shock or emit the smell (which is supposed to be disgusting to dogs). The idea is that it dishes out an instant punishment every time the dog barks.

With plenty of exercise and good training, items like this should never be necessary for you and your dog. I tend to think they do more harm than good because of the damage they can cause to the bond you have with your dog, so avoid them if you can.
