yeah, I am fortunate to be always home and around I would buy a bark collar if my dog didn't shut up in the crate and I had to leave though.

Yeah, that's what I mean. They're both tools that can deliver a shock after the dog barks, but I like the idea of me being in control of that (example, my story 2 posts ago where my friends dog gets corrected for yawning). The downside yeah is when you're gone if the dog barks there's nothing you can do. I leave my dog in a crate though and she's taught to be silent in there so never really had to deal with it

I like them because they let the dog bark once and it gives a warning and then zaps the dog at your predetermined setting if the dog barks again within 15 seconds and then it waits for 10-15 seconds so the dog doesn't enter a loop of bark zap bark in reaction to the zap and get zapped again because of that.

I prefer to do it manually with an e collar here when I'm around to be able to do that, but if that isn't possible the bark collars are key.
Bugger, the Petsafe ones were the ones I was looking at. Seen them selling for $199 and assumed they might be of the 'better type.' One had lemon spray instead of citronella, which I thought might be a bit more tolerable (though I suppose that goes against the point?) I might look at importing a Dogtra then.

An e-collar would be good if anyone were around to use it, but unfortunately his barking happens when no one is home :\

lalachka Thank you, Lies. He just yelped, he also can take a lot of corrections but for some reason that freaked me out and I took it off right away. I will try again with either the Ecollar or buy another bark collar.

Liesje Nikon gave a short yelp the first time he wore it, more like his bark was interrupted. It was on a fairly low level and he's a dog that can take a great deal of physical correction. I would gauge the entire reaction in context, not just the yelp. If the dog appears very scared, confused, cowering, then maybe it's not the right tool. If he just yelps once or twice and then goes about his business without barking, that doesn't bother me.

Baillif Send me a pm and we can talk it over in detail.

lalachka Thank you, both of yu)))

Lol, yep, bought it at petco. Paid like 150 for it. Leerburg' seem cheaper and better.

But it's interesting you mention using Ecollar as bark collar. I wanted to ask about that.

He barks when I'm there, at 2 am. So I'm there when it happens (at least those are the times people are complaining about), I'm just not sure how to shut him up lolol

Also, he barks in the crate sometimes, is it OK to use the Ecollar as bark collar? Keep in mind that though I have the Ecollar I haven't used it for training yet, not sure if it matters.
