Some Safety Considerations For Using A Bark Collar

Safety is extremely important with a bark collar.

Always always get your vet’s advice or the advice of an animal health and/or training expert – nothing is a substitute for professional advice.

Some general safety guidelines for using a bark collar humanely and safely might be:

Buy from a reputable company who put proper use of the bark collar and the safety of the dog as a priority 

Read and follow the operating guide, instruction/safety manual and training guide that comes with the bark collar system from the manufacturer for operation and safety instructions and guidelines

Pay attention to any warnings issued by the manufacturer

Monitor your dog’s response both mentally and physically to using a bark collar. Take the collar off immediately and discontinue use of the system if you notice any negative implications or reactions

 

A good bark collar that uses static stimulation should simply stimulate the muscle (to the point of reflex) to get the dog’s attention, but should not cause pain (it might be slightly annoying for the dog to act as a small deterrent – but shouldn’t cause pain or harm).

It certainly shouldn’t cause a ‘sharp pain’ to the muscle or body. 

To get a safe stimulation level – it helps if the bark collar can be set to the lowest stimulation level, and increased as required manually up to a level that gets the dog’s attention (such as changing body language when a stimulation, vibration or tone is administered) without any visible sign of pain or harm (such as yelping, or showing signs of stress).

A good bark collar company should give you all the necessary safety, use and training instructions, and should have a dedicated customer service line to help when you being using the collar.

Good bark collars usually also come with a safety shut off features for static stimulation in case a dog keeps barking.

The static stimulation function does not need to be used either – tone and vibrate training modes can be used instead on bark collars that have them.

Some owners like to even use their bark collar as a temporary training tool, and may go back to using body or verbal bark training commands once behaviors are reinforced (if suitable).
