Over enthusiastic barking dogs can quickly become an annoyance for both their owners and those around them. If you have a canine that seems to go into fits of barking at the drop of a hat, then you should first question the underlying reasons why they behave this way; do they have any health issues? Are they inactive for too long and frustrated out of boredom? If one of these is true, then you can deal with the situation by taking them to the vets or finding a quick fix such as a bark collar. While dogs that bark all the time can be annoying for you and people around you, there are some breeds that bark more than others. Just like there are breeds that are prone to deafness, there are also breeds that can easily get bothered by loud noises such as dogs who tend to be more sensitive to vibrations because they are closer to the ground. If you have a dog that can’t seem to control his barking, then it might be a good idea to consider using a sonic no bark collar to curb the habit.
Sonic no bark collars work by emitting a sound that interrupts a dog’s barking patterns temporarily. Each time that a dog barks within 15 seconds of using the collar, the sound that is emitted asks the dog to try and stop barking again. If the dog refuses, then the device is powered on him. However, the repetition of this pattern of behavior will keep your dog from barking uncontrollably.
A sonic no bark collar comes in different settings and models, and with a wide price range. Depending on what you want to use it for and how much you want to spend, you can have a very diverse selection of units to choose from.
For example, if you want to train your dog not to bark when someone approaches, you might want to get the ultrasonic model of the collar. The power isocard is built into the collar which is an effective way of training your dog. This type of no bark collar works for any size dog as they are built to fit around the dogs nose, preventing them from impede barking. The main advantage of this design is that it can be activated remotely, so you can be able to stimulation your dog when barking is occurring and not minutes later on.
Sonic no bark collars are also safe to use. The dog will not be physically hurt and your dog will not be frightened. The design of the unit is such that is can be triggered by remote access, and it is completely safe for your dog as long as the unit is activated on a low level.
Bark collars for small dogs as used for small dogs can be bought for around $40, depending on the style and features included which might be ensign equipment. Another option is to find a dog collar bundle for a couple hundred dollars, again depending on style and features. Again, depending on what you want to use it for will determine the price.
Some other cool stuff you can get for your dog if you want to curb their barking or nipping habits is dog clothing. For larger dogs, there are special dog boots you can get that were designed to keep your dogs feet warm during night time walks. If you are the type of owner that likes to take their dog out for walks, a night time dog walk might leave the dog feeling cold, so an easy solution to this problem is to provide your dog with a light sweater or jacket to wear during the day.
Another item you can add to your dog’s home remedies is a motion activated water sprayer. This is great for owners of large dogs that like to bark at night. When turning on the unit you can adjust the frequency to suit your dog, whether it is one or two barks. Again, the style and features of this item vary. You can choose the one that is hand held, some that are actually a automatic device, or a unit that you can connect to an outdoor water spigot.
Another item, which might not actually be considered a dog pet treatment item, but it has been proven to work, is a special type of can food that is designed to give your dog double the nutrients they normally would get from dry dog food. The problem with this is it might take a while for your dog to get the extra nutrients he or she needs after eating. If you want to try this method, you can try it with a few small tins of different brand of kibble for a week or two. After the first week, you should start to notice the difference.
Another option is to buy dog grooming supplies and do the job yourself. This way you can save a bit of money and you are able to give your dog the best grooming care available, where your pet will receive the best care to ensure his or her best health and wellness.
