Shock Collar Found on Dog After Day Care | The Bark

If a dog still keeps barking, the shock collar will produce similar shocks of a higher intensity.

The New, highly advanced TERMINATOR 2 bark control collar will stop your dog from barking faster than any other device made. It uses gradually increasing shock stimulus plus gradually increasing sound stimulus to quickly TEACH your pet to stop barking. The TERMINATOR 2 is designed to quickly cure even the most stubborn barker with a minimum of pain. It first applies a tone followed by progressively increasing tone and shock stimulus as your dog's barking persists. If your dog is quiet for 30 seconds or more, the TERMINATOR 2 resets to the mildest correction level. In this way, your pet needs only to experience the higher shock levels a few times before learning that the mild sound and shock stimulus is a warning of stronger corrections to come. Your pet will quickly learn to SHUT UP at the mild correction without having to suffer the more intense stimulus. This technique of progressively increasing sound and shock is not only more humane, it is more EFFECTIVE in breaking the nuisance barking habit than conventional shocking bark control collars. The TERMINATOR 2 does not need uncomfortable probes to sense your dog’s bark. It uses a built in, non-invasive, microphone and High Tech Pet’s, SURE SENSE voice recognition system. The processor monitors the sound wave pattern and much like your ear, is able to tell the difference between of a dog bark and stray sounds in the environment. This ensures that only your dog’s bark will set off the unit with virtual 100% accuracy.
Instead of relying on an electric shock to correct a dog’s barking, these collars use a burst of citronella spray.

Bark collars punish your dog for barking by emitting an irritating, high-pitched sound, a spray of citronella, or delivering a painful static shock via metal prongs on your dog’s neck. The collar detects sound and (sometimes, vibration from your dog’s vocal cords) and delivers a punishment when your dog barks. Bark collars from different manufactures such as the Sportdog bark collar and Petsafe bark collar have different shock levels.

Our top shock collar contenders run the gamut in terms of price, and we urge potential customers to consider their personal dog behavioral modification needs before committing to a specific brand. Indoor dogs with inappropriate barking or property destruction issues often need a different form of correction that hunting dogs working in heavy brush. Some shock collar systems deliver much more powerful electrostatic charges than others, which can affect smaller breeds more negatively than larger breeds. Price is definitely an important consideration, but the animal's comfort and safety should always be a higher one. The idea is correction, not punishment.At first glance, the training collar may not appear to belong on a list of top shock collar behavioral modification system contenders. It is not designed to work by remote control, and its use is limited to excessive barking correction. However, the Petiner shock collar performs that one task extremely well. The lightweight receiver collar fits practically every dog breed -- even the smallest toy or lap dogs. The user attaches the unit around the pet's neck and ensures good skin contact with the electrostatic probes. When the dog barks for the first time, the receiver sends out a loud corrective tone. If the dog barks again within 30 seconds, the tone grows louder. After so many barks, the receiver switches to electrostatic mode until the dog remains quiet for at least 30 seconds. The unit then resets to the lowest corrective tone or goes into sleep mode. The Petiner is water-resistant but not completely waterproof. We recommend indoor use whenever possible to avoid too many false positives from other sources of noise.Instead of punishing a dog with a painful electrostatic shock after the first unwanted bark, it is more humane to deliver an attention-getting audio signal via the shock collar. This gives the dog time to adjust its behavior naturally.• STOP YOUR DOG'S EXCESSIVE BARKING: Highly efficient and comfortable to wear, this no-shock, anti-bark dog collar offers the most reliable and …
