How to Find the Best Bark Collar for your Dog

When choosing a bark collar, there are four things you need to consider:

  • Your dog's age and health
  • Your dog's size (weight)
  • Your dog's temperament
  • Your dog's environment

1. Your Dog's Age and Health

We only recommend static electric bark collars for healthy dogs above 6 months of age. If your dog is under 6 months of age, we recommend waiting until your dog reaches 6 months of age. The reason it's important to wait until your dog is 6 months old is because by this age, your dog will be able associate the static stimulation with their barking. Young puppies may not understand that the correction is as a result of their barking and may get confused.

If you have a puppy, senior dog, hearing impaired or blind dog that needs a bark collar, feel free to give us a call on 0800 144 869 and we can discuss your bark collar options with you.

2. Your Dog's Size

Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. So do bark collars. The last thing you want to do is to purchase a tiny dog collar for your Rottweiler or purchase the strongest, largest collar on the market for your chihuahua. We have a wide range of bark collar sizes suitable for dogs from 2.5kg all the way up to giant dogs over 75kg. Use our dog sizing guide on each product to determine which bark collars are best for your dog.

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.

4. Your Dog's Environment

Multiple dog environments: If your dog is in an environment where there a multiple barking dogs, we recommend choosing a vibration activated bark collar or vibration & sound activated bark collar. This ensures there is a 0% chance of the collar being activated by another dog's barking. Sound activated collars may deliver a correction to your dog if another dog barks near the collar. 

Water: If your dog likes to go swimming, you will need a waterproof bark collar. Bark collars are completely safe for use in water and in rain. Static electric collars only deliver a static electric stimulation, they do not conduct electricity.


How to Fit an Electric Bark Collar

When introducing a bark control collar to your dog, it is essential that the bark collar is properly fitted.

The correct bark collar fitting is high up on your dog's neck (just under the jaw) and adjusted tight enough so that you can't move it from side to side. Once it's in place, you'll need to wiggle the module up and down to ensure the contact probes are touching their skin.

Fitting the collar like this is the most comfortable position for your dog and ensures your dog receives the corrections during barking behaviour only. If the collar is too loose, your dog won't receive the static stimulation and the collar may deliver false corrections when your dog isn't barking.
