Dog Bark Collar Training: Hints and Tips to Train a Dog to Stop Barking.

In an ideal world, our beloved canine companions would understand “quiet” commands as easily as they understand “sit” or “stay.” However, curbing excessive barking can often be a more complicated task requiring time, patience, and, sometimes, additional tools. At Hidden Fence, we believe in trying conventional training methods first. But when those efforts don’t yield the desired results, the BT7 Electronic No Bark Trainer could be just the tool you need to restore peace and quiet to your home.

Start with Conventional Methods

Before jumping straight into using an electronic anti-bark collar, we recommend you try traditional methods for controlling your dog’s barking. This could involve:

Understanding the Cause: Is your dog barking due to fear, attention-seeking, or perhaps due to a cat in the yard? Understanding the reason can often help in finding the right solution.

Verbal Commands: Use a firm but calm voice to tell your dog to stop barking. Reward your dog when they comply.

Divert Attention: Use toys or initiate a different activity to distract your dog from whatever is making them bark.

Positive Reinforcement: 
Always reward quiet behaviour through treats or affection.

When Conventional Methods Fail, Consider Bark Collar Training

If you’ve tried these methods and your dog continues to bark excessively, it may be time to consider more specialised training aids like the BT7 No Bark Trainer. Available through Hidden Fence, the BT7 is an advanced, highly customisable collar that comes with a range of settings to suit your dog’s specific needs. It can be set to emit a warning sound, vibrate or offer e-stimulation, depending on what works best to deter your dog’s nuisance barking.
