Doberman that is Barking Too Much

Author: Neil Smith   Date Posted:13 December 2016 

Q.  What type of bark collar do I need.  I have an almost 2 year old Doberman that for some reason insists on barking for minor reasons.  I am after something that will help train her to not bark when not needed e.g. Cat sitting across the road, kids playing in their own yards, nuisance barking for attention at the neighbour over the fence when we are not home, etc. I don’t want to stop her barking completely however as I do want her to bark when it is needed e.g. when unknown people are around the house. Can you please provide recommendations for suit her age and size (over 25kg)? Also if the collar doesn’t work, do you have a policy where it can be upgraded etc? Thank you

 

A.  Hi, I would stick with one of these two collars:

SportDOG No Bark Bark Control Collar SBC-10R

Dogtra YS-600 Bark Collar

Either collar will be successful, however, for the best results it is important to fit the collar correctly (learn more here).  In terms of the collar possibly not working, each collar is backed by a manufacturer's warranty, and we add to that our own Performance Guarantee.  If you have any other questions, please contact us.
