Select the right collar by choosing your breed...Simple! By popular demand we have compiled a list of popular dog breeds to help make selecting the right bark collar even easier!

Bark Collars By Dog Breed

At Bark Control we get lots of requests asking what is the best barking collar for a particular breed.  Well after a fair bit of work, the guys have selected our most common dog breeds and allocated a list of bark collars that we think will get you the best results.  If you cannot find your breed get in touch with us and we can add them to the chart if the breed is popular enough. 

How To Use This Chart:

This chart should be taken as a guide only.  All dogs are different and if your dog is particularly timid or stubborn it may be worth talking to one of our experts before purchasing an anti-bark collar.

It is important to note we have based these bark collar recommendations on healthy adult dogs.  If you have younger dogs or senior dogs with a barking problem we suggest you call us for some expert guidance.

Mixed breed owners should go by the dominant breed of the mix.  Mixed breeds like labradoodles for example can come in various sizes so before selecting ensure the bark collar is suitable for your dog's size.

Remember we have also selected what we considered the best collar not the cheapest.  So if you cannot find something in your price range feel free to contact us to discuss further as well.

AS WE ALWAYS SAY IF YOU ARE STILL NOT SURE PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL!  Call: 1300 668 931
