Electric/Static Bark Collars are best for medium to large dogs who are real stubborn. We also offer Electric/Static Bark Collars that are waterproof and have rechargeable or replaceable batteries. Don’t worry! These bark collars are proven to be safe… and are designed with features that ensure your dog will not get zapped for the wrong reasons.
Most anti bark collars are actually designed with such features:
- Activation through vibration
- The stimulation/correction/distraction, to prevent your dog from barking excessively, is activated by the vibration through his vocal cords. This is ideal for dogs that bark and growl to people A LOT.
- Activation through sound and vibration
- The correction is delivered once the bark collar sensor detects your dog’s bark sound PLUS the vibration through his vocal cords. This is great if you have 2 or more dogs - another dog’s bark will not trigger the other dog’s correction.
- Activation through sound
- The distraction is activated once the bark collar sensor detects the sound of your dog’s bark. This is ideal for dogs that always howl or whine. However, it may get activated by other dogs’ bark - so we recommend this for solitary dogs.
Citronella Spray Bark Collars are best for tiny to medium sized dogs. We also recommed this type of collar to younger and senior dogs. This is also rated to match with dogs that have sensitive personalities - those easy startled but still responsive.
This type of collar also comes with the different and combined activation features: vibration, sound, and vibration and sound. We also have waterproof Citronella Spray Bark Collars that come with rechargeable and replaceable batteries.
Ultrasonic Bark Collars are best for tiny to medium sized dogs who are super sensitive but easy to train. An ultrasonic is a kind of sound that are inaudible to humans’ ears - this is perfect to distract your senior dogs as well. This type of bark collar comes with sound (bark) and vibration activation - through your dog’s vocal cords. This type of collar usually comes with replaceable, long-lasting batteries.
Vibration Bark Collars are best for tiny to large dogs. This is also perfect for your young and senior dogs who have sensitive temperaments. It comes with the sound and vibration activated sensor - your dog will only get vibrated (distracted from his barking) through the sound of his bark and the vibration of his vocal cords.

CONSTANT BarkingBy: Nancy Hardy on 30 June 2019My male teacup Maltese is over 8 years old and we moved to sunny Queensland 12mths ago. He came to a 1 room house with big backyard and another older Staffy male dog. All o.k. 3mths ago I went away for 2 weeks, old dog had died just before I left and when I came back, family had a new 7week old Staffy male pup. My dog doesn't get on with him as he is very energetic and jumps on him and bares his teeth. My Malty reacts by barking, growling and snapping at him--- he was so bad he had lost his voice and could only whimper and now he also barks non stop if I go out or even if I go to the bathroom or garden ( where he can hear me,but not see me). Would the citronella anti bark collar work on him or should I get a different type? He is not a naughty dog, he just is over anxious if he can't see me and it is driving us all to distraction.
