What is the Best Bark Collar for my Border Collie?

Border Collie

Intelligent, loyal, and extremely active, the Border Collie is a well-respected dog in the working field and in families across the globe. Originally bred for herding livestock, the skill has been deliberately encouraged and can be shown on farms, and even around cats, dogs, and small children. Regardless of their natural working nature, the Border Collie's playful personality fits in well with active families providing they are given the correct training and socialisation. Their willingness to perform and desire to impress is the main reason most Border Collie owners include agility competitions as a part of their training regime.

 

Bark Collars For Border Collies

Although Border Collies are recognised as a friendly and playful breed, due to their working heritage, lack of physical or mental stimulation may result in nuisance behaviours including excessive barking.

The best bark control collar for healthy adult Border Collies above 6 months is a manual-set static electric barking collar. Static electric bark collars deliver a safe, consistent form of correction designed to effectively train your dog out of nuisance barking. Citronella spray collars, vibration bark collars, and ultrasonic bark collars do not have a high success rate with Border Collies due to their high intelligence and drive.

To view our bark collar recommendations for Border Collies above 6 months, please view our product chart below.

 

For Border Collie puppies under 6 months, we recommend citronella spray collars. It's important to note that we don't usually suggest using any sort of bark control on puppies under 6 months old because puppies still need time to be puppies, in saying that, if your puppy is just non-stop barking and it's become a major headache, citronella spray collars are a good place to start. If their barking continues as they get older, we recommend switching to a manual-set static electric collar.

Please view our collar recommendations for puppies under 6 months at the bottom of this page.
