As the videos show, the concept of using a bark collar can be serious or silly, but you get the point.
These collars are extremely useful, especially in the United States where it is common for people to get in trouble with local animal control and other similar departments when pets are deemed by neighbors as being “out of control.” You may have even been in the position where a neighbor suddenly called animal control because of your dog’s incessant barking, without even talking to you about the issue. If you are tired of meeting with animal control representatives, and would like to have a better relationship with your neighbors, it might be a good idea to decide on what kind of dog collar would be best for your dog. There are many kinds of collars that can effectively be used on your dog. Here are some examples:

- Choose 1 of 3 training modes that require both vibration and sound of bark to trigger correction
- Automatic shutoff feature eliminates risk of overcorrection
- No assembly required

Bark Control Collar Petsafe Basic Bark Control Collar The time you spend with your pet is precious, and you love having her in your life. When it comes to her behavior, you have very few complaints. Yet, there is one small issue you would like to fix – her constant chatter. Lately, her barking and yapping has become the soundtrack of your life. It isn’t exactly music to your ears, and you’re ready to do something about it. The Bark Control Collar is an easy-to-use solution that will tune out her barking.
How it works: When your dog barks, the vibration of your dog’s bark triggers the sensor probe. The collar then administers a static correction through the contact points. It begins with the lowest level of correction and increases through the six levels each time she barks within 30 seconds of the previous barks. Once she stops, the collar will reset itself to the lowest level. When she barks again, the process will start over.

Choking chains – As the name implies, this type of collar tightens around the neck of the dog. It is often used in emergency cases, where the dog has become extremely violent and is trying to injure someone. The collar is placed near the ear region and can tighten extremely well, if the need arises.
Pinch collars – Pinch collars are equipped with metal prongs that exert pinpoint pressure on the skin around the neck. When a pinch collar is used on a dog by a dog trainer, the dog feels discomfort around his neck. Theoretically, this will stop any negative behavior from escalating. If used improperly and too often, pinch collar can cause injury, because the prongs are made of metal.

The DOGTEK BC-60 Bark Control Collar combines sound beeps with optional strong and weak static impulses for a proven and safe formula. The DOGTEK BC-60 bark control device provides a humane but effective solution to help train your dog to not to excessively bark. This bark collar has the ability to sense when your dog barks based on the vibrations caused by the barking, not the actual sound or noise of the barking dog. This is a great and unique feature since the collar can only be triggered by the dog wearing the collar, and never triggered by noises or barks from another dog barking around them. The static corrections of the BC-60 are simple and not harmful; very similar to what a human would experience after rubbing their feet on a carpet and touching a metal doorknob. This collar is recommended for all breeds 15 lbs and greater. Requires one CR123 battery (included).

Shock collars – This is the most popular training bark collar collar on the market, because it delivers a swift form of discipline/punishment to misbehaving dogs and get them to reduce dog barking. Electricity flows through shock collars, and is released upon the animal remotely through a separate control unit. Some shock collars can also be triggered by “electric fences,” or remote control units that are placed around a specific perimeter.
When the dog crosses the perimeter, a shock current is released that immediately corrects the dog’s behavior. This is called pet containment, and is very popular with professional trainers and regular dog owners alike. Shock collars can also be used to reduce dog barking. It stops the unwanted behavior fast.
It is very important that you do not shock your dog (even if you can) on a whim or for every small mistake or transgression. If you do, the shock collar’s effectiveness will soon wane, and your dog may continue to exhibit the unwanted behavior, despite being shocked again and again. Use it only as a training tool, and never as a device used for “getting back” at your dog for his mistakes. Also, learn to time your shocks properly. The shock should be administered the moment the behavior presents itself, so that the lesson not to perform that specific behavior sinks in quickly and permanently.
Bark collars can be effective but care needs to be taken not to go too far as shown in this video that reports a Dog was Injured By Bark Collar At Kennel:
