3. Your Dog's Temperament
There are 3 types of dog temperaments we classify dogs into:
Mild/Timid/Nervous: Timid dogs respond to loud claps or stomping feet. We only recommend manual set bark collars with low to medium stimulation levels for timid dogs.
Moderate/Steady: Most dogs fit into this category. Moderate dogs aren't particularly timid or stubborn. Most bark collars are suitable for these dogs.
Stubborn/High Drive: Most stubborn dogs are working breed dogs such as German Shepherds, Dobermanns, Ridgebacks, Rottweiler etc. For stubborn dogs, you will need a bark collar that has medium to very high correction levels.
