HOW TO STOP NUISANCE BARKING

To really understand how to use a "No Bark" collar it is important to understand why dogs bark. Dogs bark to communicate that they need or want something, and these needs can be many various things. Some examples are:

  • They want to go outside or come in.
  • They are hungry.
  • Or, they just want you to play.
  • Dogs get bored, frustrated anxious and excited and will use barking to let you know how they feel.

Some dogs were bred to bark for a specific purpose, such as hounds, guard dogs or some herding breeds

Expecting a dog not to bark is like expecting birds not to fly. Look for realistic limits and make sure your expectations are reasonable because some breed’s inherent need to bark will be much higher than others.

Here are some helpful tips in what to look for and how to handle unnecessary barking.

  • Dogs that are left outdoors tend to have more barking problems and require more contact and socialization. It takes some special effort on your part to care for these needs.
  • For dogs that are both inside and outside, increase your play and exercise time. A well exercised dog will be more relaxed and will spend additional time resting.
  • Take your dog out on errands Even a quick car ride offers the stimulation of a whole new world of smells and sights and will give your dog a mental workout.
  • Be careful not to unwittingly reward barking behavior by yelling, which may appear to work but in reality is increasing the barking behavior.

Ignoring the barking and then rewarding your dog with play, praise and food, when quiet, is frequently more effective than yelling and the results will last longer. Unfortunately, this method requires a cast iron will, a good set of ear plugs and very understanding neighbors!

Know your dog’s barking cues and avoid them. For example; bring your dog in the house or close the blinds when the children are getting off the school bus or confine your dog to the back of the house when the mail man usually arrives.

Just a little extra effort, attention and love can go a long way in reducing your dog’s need to bark.

The Innotek automatic no-bark collar offers instant feedback that will distract your dog from barking. The collar senses the vibration produced by your dog’s vocal chords and delivers a very brief pulse similar to a static shock you would feel on a door knob. Unlike other deterrents the collar can only be activated by the dog wearing it. Other dog’s barking and loud noises will not activate your Innotek no-bark collar.

With the first bark, the system, built into the collar, will start a pulse at the lowest level and will rise one level with each bark that follows until the barking stops. After your dog has been quiet for 20 seconds the collar will automatically re-set to the next lowest level. This is the pulse level that is best for your dog. There is no risk of over-correcting because your dog has decided which level is optimal.

The Innotek no-bark collar allows dogs to learn at their own speed, that excessive and annoying barking is off limits. Most dogs quickly learn to avoid the stimulation by being quiet. Of course, some dogs learn more quickly than others, so be patient and understanding with your dog and follow the recommendations in the supplied training video.
