Best Dog Training Devices

sitSometimes, we do everything we can to alleviate bad behavior in our dogs (read here for my post about bad dog behaviors). However, traditional methods may not always suffice. Fortunately, in this day of high tech, we have devices available that can help – especially in the area of excessive barking. These best dog training devices might be your answer.

Please remember that dogs often bark to communicate and because it’s enjoyable. So, these devices are used only when barking becomes a problem.

With that in mind, here are a few of the best dog training devices for excessive barking. Also, note that these are all “non-shocking” for ultrasonic dog training.

  • Wow. I don’t usually write reviews but I had to let everyone know how well this works! My Poodle would randomly bark all night and it would wake me up! Since using this collar he has learned when barking is OK and when it isn’t. He never even made it to the vibration because the beeps have done the trick. I’m so glad I purchased this.
  • Great item. And it works perfect! I am blown away by this product and can’t believe how successful it’s been. I was skeptical at first because I didn’t think a single beep from a collar could change anything. Boy, was I wrong. And no discomfort.
  • This collar is awesome! It vibrates instead of giving a shock. My Havanese is a barker and she has already learned what the little beep means. It also seems durable and comes in a nice case. This has made my morning so much better because my dog isn’t barking at 6AM anymore.

  • This saved our ears and we are sleeping through the night. It works amazingly. Before, the barking was getting worse and worse. This collar worked after the first night. We are sleeping through the night now.

I am not a fan of shock bark collars so I have included only the “no-shock” variety here. There are many shock collars available and most of the manufacturers say the shocking is gentle and harmless. So, I’m assuming that’s true or they would hopefully be taken off the market.

If you have tried everything to alleviate your dog’s excessive barking, one of these ultrasonic dog training devices could be the answer.

    Caring for our pets with the best pet foods we could offer and pampering them with their favorite treats and giving them regular grooming are the best ways to keep them happy and well-loved. Teaching them tricks and train them with different commands make their personality and behavior even more engaging and lovable.

    Hi and some great information presented. We have 5 dogs, Three stay in a workshop with a kennel attached and two inside our house. Mix and match at any given time. Not much barking with the breeds we have, but when they do start up at night its usually because of wild animals passing through. As a training device, I see the value of these collars. On a more practical side, the barking serves to alert us to visitors arriving. Kind of a tricky situation. These collars all sound better than shock collars and with a good training program, should do the trick. Thanks for the information!

      Hi Sanders:

      Thank you for your comments.

      Yes, it is indeed a tricky situation because dogs bark to communicate and we certainly want them to do that! I think people need to use discretion as to when the collar should be worn. 

      What kinds of dogs do you have?
