Guide to selecting the right bark / training collar for your dog.
Please note this is a guide only. Every dog is different on how they react to collars. The team at Hog Dogs care for animal’s wellbeing. Please insure there is not a medical reason your dog is barking. Always start with the lowest setting first. Do regular checks insuring the prongs are secure and not irritating your dogs neck. For additional help please contact your local council for regional dog training classes.
Making the decision to use a bark collar can be a hard one, and even harder choosing the right one for your dog.
Types of collars:
Ultrasonic Bark Collar. When the dog barks, the collar emits a high pitch noise that only dogs can hear. We have tested this on many dogs and found the success rate very low. Therefore we do not stock these.
Vibration Bark Collar. The vibration collar is placed around your dogs neck. When the dog barks, the collar vibrates through a small prong. Vibration collars are suitable for small healthy dogs up to 5kgs and 6 months and up.
Static / electric/ shock / bark collars. These collars have many different names. The collar is placed around the dogs neck. When the dog barks, a static shock is emitted. This can be set at varying static levels to suit your dogs needs. We have 2 options of battery powered weatherproof and rechargeable waterproof. They are suitable for all healthy dogs from 3kg and 6 months and up.
Remote Training Collars. Remote training collars differ to that of the vibration and bark collar where they automatically correct the dog, the remote training systems allow you to correct the dog as needed. They are commonly used to stop behaviour such as chasing stock, not paying attention (discussed further below), barking at particular times plus more. Suitable for all healthy dogs from 3kgs and 6 months and up.
