Getting Your Bark Collar Up and Running

The most frustrating thing is getting a new product and it not working in the way you expected it to work. This can be the biggest problem with bark control collars; especially if you (and your neighbour’s) have been waiting for your bark control collar’s urgent arrival to stop your dog barking.

We rarely find a problem with any collar straight from the box or that the product is not suitable for the dog. Ninety-nine precent of calls or emails are usually due to the customer not being able to fit or place the collar on the dog correctly. 

All spray bark control collars and static electric bark control collars that are vibration activated require to be fitted on the dog’s neck correctly so that the collar can pick up the vibration from the dogs bark and in the case of the static collars so that the collar can deliver the correction to the dog. Fitting to the dog’s neck in colder winter months is always harder than in the summer months due to the thicker coat.

If you require more information about fitting a bark control collar correctly please read the How to fit a bark control collar properly in the article section.

Dog Fence Solutions

Escaping dogs can be a stressful situation for any owner. When dogs get out, they are at risk of being hit by a car or other injury, or picked up by the local animal control service which is often a costly exercise, or they risk injuring other animals or worse still people. To avoid this, you should consider an electric dog fence, designed to keep your dog safely with the confines of your property, even if there is no existing dog fencing in place!
Invisible Dog Fence or dog containment system is just another name for an electric dog fence, as they keep your dog/s safely within a set area without being an eyesore. An electric dog fence is also a cheaper alternative to traditional fencing. This type of dog fencing is easy to install and will stop escaping dogs from trying to dig under, jump or climb over existing fencing. The dog fence is easily installed by either burying the wire or attaching it to an existing fence.

Our dog fence range has dog containment systems to suit a large variety of breeds and temperaments of dog, from the timid and small pet to the stubborn and large working dog. In addition to this, the dog fence selection we have includes models for various sized properties, including the SportDog SDF-100A, which can do up to 100 acres - however, additional wire may need to be purchased, we have them available in a Boundary Kit. To help you work out how much wire you will need for your dog fence and property, please look at this Size of Property and Wire Required Table. You can also have more than one dog in the fence thanks to the additional collars that are available for each dog containment system.
