Dog Shock Collars - What You Must Know Before Buying a Shock Collar for Your Loving Dogs!
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.
