    The Spray Bark Collar: An Alternative To The Shock Collar


    Amidst the existing controversies regarding the usage of shock and sonic bark collars on pets, the choice of spray bark collars prove to be innovative and effective among many of the pet owners today. But, before opting for the anti bark spray collar, it is critical to understand the distinguishing factors between the conventional and the innovative spray bark collars in detail.

    The spray bark collar

    For those pet owners who are desperate to calm down the incessant barking of their pets and get them behaviorally trained, spray bark collars are just the most effective and viable solution. This type of anti bark collar senses the vibrations in the dog's neck that are caused by the sound of the bark, and in turn, it releases a small squirt of citronella that sprays the dog's muzzle. The spray catches the dog off guard because the dog can see it, smell it, feel it, and hear it. Dogs don't like the smell of citronella, and the spray will cause it to stop barking and wonder what caused the spray and where it came from; and eventually the dog will figure out that excessive barking will result in another spray of cintronella.

    PetSafe and Innotek are the couple of popular brands of spray bark collars in the US. As mentioned, it pays to take a bit of time to understand the differences between the different models that are available to the public. Some factors that you should take into account are the dog's size and breed, as well as the collar's size, battery length, range, weight, and of course, look.

    When you compare the several features of the several models available with what you think your dog needs, you'll get a much better collar for your money.

    Benefits of the anti bark spray collar

    The anti bark spray collar is considered by dog trainers as the most humane of all training collars, since the citronella spray is neither painful nor harmful to the dog. Research conducted at the Mesa Veterinary Hospital (Moffat), Arizona in 2003 testifies that the spray bark collars are relatively very effective when compared to the scentless collars.

    Hopefully this article gives an insight into the working principle of spray bark collars. It also mentioned some factors to take into account when getting a spray collar. Finally, it talks about a study that backs the efficiency of the spray collar.

    The spray bark collar is a good alternative to other types of training collars. Unlike the shock collar, there's no controversy attached to it. Finally, the anti bark spray collar can be bought online or in a pet store.
