Embroidered dog collars Q&A
The Electric dog barking collars do work and work very well. However, Citronella anti-bark collars are far more humane than any of the other options listed and are actually more effective than shock collars.
RSPCA Australia is opposed to the use of these devices.
RSPCA Australia is opposed to the use of any electronically activated or other devices which deliver electric shocks, such as anti-barking collars and invisible boundaries. Such devices are inhumane as they inflict pain, involve punishment and can be used to abuse animals. RSPCA Australia is also opposed to the use of collars that deliver aversive stimuli such as sound or scent, including citronella collars and high-pitched sound-emitting devices.
This type of training is called ‘punishment’ as the dog is effectively punished by the collar for every bark. Punishment, as a method of training, is often ineffective as dogs often do not associate the punishment (the citronella spray, sound or shock) with the behaviour. Positive reinforcement is a preferable training technique as it provides an incentive for desirable behaviour. In this case, you would reward your dog when he stops barking and remains quiet, by offering her a tasty treat or play with a favourite toy. Food treats are good to start with but as training progresses your dog should recognise verbal praise and a pat as a treat.
Electronic anti-barking devices inflict pain and distress on the animal and therefore should not be used.
This type of behavioural modification does not tend to be successful because it fails to address the underlying cause of the behaviour. Dogs bark for many reasons: play, fear, separation anxiety, frustration, environmental factors, boredom etc. These devices will not necessarily solve the underlying cause of the barking and will only temporarily mask the problem.
Scientific evidence shows that dogs will eventually habituate to the collar and barking will resume again.
Sometimes it is appropriate for dogs to bark (e.g. as a means of communication) in which case the collar punishes them for normal behaviour. Because the collar does not discriminate between problem barking and normal canine behaviour, there is a potential for abuse if the collar is routinely left on for too long.
Dogs have far more sensitive noses than we do, and therefore what we may smell as a relatively nice citrus smell, can be overpowering for a dog.
The treatment of nuisance behaviours such as excessive barking should begin by determining the root cause of the problem and then attempting to address the underlying cause humanely.
The RSPCA’s history dates back to 1871, is an independent, non-government community-based charity providing animal care and protection services.
The simple answer is ‘sometimes’. Because there are so many underlying reasons for your dog to bark and dogs use their bark to communicate many different things, a collar may or may not work for your situation. In several studies bark collars have been shown to be effective. However it may depend on your dog’s temperament.
Many dogs will simply ignore the collar and continue barking. Dogs that are anxious and fearful often respond poorly to punishment too and become more anxious if being punished. So if your dog is barking due to separation anxiety or fear a collar is unlikely to help. While these collars may act as a deterrent in the short-term there is a degree of habituation that comes over time, leading to decreased efficacy and a 86% relapse rate in a group of dogs who initially had a reduction in their barking frequency.
There are several types of bark collars available. Some deliver an electric shock, while others deter barking by spraying citronella or sounding an ultrasonic or audible noise in response to a bark. The use of shock collars is regulated and is only legal in some states of Australia. Citronella and ultrasonic collars are available throughout Australia.
Usually the bark collars rely on a vibration or a microphone that detects noise. This then triggers an aversive stimulus (electric shock, citronella, irritating noise or similar). This means that they can sometimes be triggered randomly when your dog does not bark.
Regulations controlling the use of electronic shock collars in dog training is state specific. In SA and ACT shock collars are not legal under the Animal Welfare Act. In NSW they are not allowed except when used with invisible boundary fences, under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Regulation 1996 Schedule 1. They are allowed in the NT, although those that use a remote control are disallowed. In QLD, WA, Tasmania and Victoria they are permitted so long as they do not cause pain to the animal.
