Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why shouldn't I use a bark collar?

A bark collar may be helpful in reducing the unwanted barking behavior, but it uses a negative stimulus to accomplish this. Most veterinary behaviorists and animal trainers advocate using positive training methods because they are more effective and humane than negative training. Additionally, some dogs learn that the negative stimulus only comes when the collar is worn and resume barking when it is not in place.
