# Chapter 01 - What is a "Shock" No Bark Collar?
Bark collars are a specific type of training tool that is ideal for dogs with a
natural tendency to bark excessively, or more than usual for any reason.
Bark collars are designed to provide negative reinforcement in reaction to
the unwanted barking behavior. Over time, the dog will learn to avoid the
behavior in order to avoid the negative reinforcement.
While the use of bark collars has become controversial, it is not inherently
a bad training method as long as the collar is used correctly and the
training is administered as it should be. This guide is designed to address
the concept of a specific type of bark collar, a "shock" bark collar which
delivers an electrical pulse in reaction to the barking behavior. While there
are other types of negative reinforcement bark collars, including collars
that spray citronella rather than emitting an electrical pulse, but the
electrical "shock" type of collar is the preferred method of training a dog
not to bark through the use of a control tool.
Electronic "shock bark collars" are capable of detecting a vibration in the
dog's vocal cords as he or she barks. When these vibrations are
determined, a low level shock is delivered to the neck of the dog.
These shocks have been compared to the electric shock that is felt as a
result of static electricity, when you touch a door knob after shuffling
across a carpeted floor. Still, this type of collar has been criticized in the
past as being humane or cruel. Some areas, such as Australia have
outlawed and prohibited the use of electronic bark collars.

Some veterinary professionals also have questioned the effectiveness in
these collars in the past, after a study conducted by the Cornell University
College of Veterinary Medicine has found that after significant testing, four
out of the eight dogs tested with an electric bark collar had no reduction in
barking.
If your dog's barking habit is beyond your control, before you consider
any irrational options, you need to think about training methods. No bark
collars are a solution that is well worth exploring, at least to determine
whether or not it is ideal for your situation. No bark electronic shock
collars are designed specifically to be quick, easy and humane in reducing
a dog's barking habit. When electronic shock collars are used the right
way, it can take only a handful of days to drastically reduce a dog's
barking habit.
If you are just beginning to understand what shock collars are, this guide
should provide the resources and information that you need to make an
informed decision regarding whether or not to use one for your dog. The
first thing that we will examine when it comes to shock no-bark dog
collars is the pros and cons associated with training a dog in this fashion.
By the end of this guide, you should be able to determine whether or not
a bark collar is ideal for you and your dog...
