Petsafe have been designing products for dogs over many years and are front runners when it comes to training your pet. The Ultrasonic Bark Control is behaviourally activated and emits an ultrasonic tone when its microphone detects barking. The water resistant collar has been specially designed not to be affected by the weather and is suitable for use with dogs over 3.6 kg. It is designed to be used for nuisance barking but can also be used in many barking situations.
Please be aware that the collars are not always successful with every dog as its affected by things such as age, hearing ability and temperament.
A question that is often asked of us is.
"Can this be used for my dog that’s happy to be quiet"? amd "Does my dog need Bark Control"?
There is no simple answer except that dogs bark for many different reasons but in most cases barking serves as a form of communication. Dog owners will generally recognise four different types of bark; warning, alarm, playful and need. For instance continuous fast barking is a warning, perhaps alerting that someone is entering their home territory, whereas long, drawn-out barks at a high pitch, with pauses between each one indicate that a dog is in need and is possibly lonely.
It is important for dog owners to try to establish why their dog is barking. Some barking may be completely normal, such as when someone knocks at the front door, but other barking may be associated with behavioural problems such as separation anxiety. Bark Control systems should not be used on dogs whose barking is a consequence of an anxiety or stress related condition. However when a dog barks as someone knocks the door it is perfectly ok, after all you welcome that action. However once you have been alerted you need it to stop this and can be reinforced easily with the collar.
How it works
The PetSafe Ultrasonic Bark Control collar effectively deters barking when it is worn. When the microphone picks up the sound of your dog’s bark, the unit emits an ultrasonic tone that can be heard by your dog, but is silent to most humans. Startled by the high-pitched tone, the dog should stop barking, as it will associate its bark with this unpleasant noise in the same way you continually say "Quiet" until you actually start to shout which is not helpful.
Introducing your dog to a Bark Control system It is the ability of the stimulation to ‘interrupt’ a dog’s barking that makes these systems such valuable social tools. However, because of this response it is important that these systems are introduced slowly and according to the instructions for any such product. Bark Control systems are behaviourally activated. This means that the dog can avoid unpleasant stimulation by adjusting his behaviour. The dog controls the stimulation - not the owner. Ultimately the dog learns not to bark and avoid stimulation completely.
