Bark collar for Mini Dachshund?
I am asking this again because I got ZERO constructive responses last time.
My 1 year old Mini Dachshund is a terrible barker when she is outside. I bought a bark collar, but because of the protruding chest of Dachshunds it didn’t fit properly to produce the shock necessary to correct the action so I returned it.
The one I used was this one
Does anyone have suggestions about a better fitting one? I think the problem was mostly in the way the collar was one solid piece of plastic/rubber and didn’t fit snug around her neck.
I am okay with using the electric bark collars. It will only take a few times for her to learn. If I frequently exhibited a negative behavior and the only way to stop it was putting a bark collar around my neck then yes, I would do it. However, if the citrus ones work better for Mini D’s, then I would be happy to try one. Also, she is out unsupervised but is chained short enough so she cant leave the yard and she can’t slip her collar. She is also only out for 5-10 minutes at a time. If she is barking incessantly I do bring her in.
Don’t tell me how awful I am for using a bark collar, I really don’t care what PETA thinks in that category.
