There are many anti barking devices on the market these days, but not all of them are created equal. If you have a dog that barks a lot and disturbs you or your neighbors, an anti-barking device such as the Barxstop might be just what you need when you want to stop dog barking.
Who Needs One?
The truth is that even if you have a dog, the dog is not always going to listen to you. They may be unruly and they may bark a lot. In fact, many dog owners find that their dog can become very territorial and bark at anything that passes by the house window. This can be disturbing and can even be scary for some people. It can also annoy the neighbors a lot. There is even a myth that hypoallergenic dogs do not bark much but that’s not true. Hypoallergenic or not your dog will bark unnecessarily if you do not start to caution it from a young age.
Here’s why you might just need an anti-barking device to calm your little pooch down:
- If you need to train your dog to be obedient but they are more interested in barking at someone through the window
- If your dog barks a lot and disturbs your sleep and your neighbors
- If you don’t have a dog but you are terrified of other dogs in your area and you want an effective way to stop them from barking and calm them down in your presence.
The truth is that some people are actually afraid of dogs. They may have had a bad experience at some point in their lives, for example. If they happen to live in an area with many dogs, it may even be tough for them to leave their home for fear of running into a dog. This is when an anti-barking device can work wonders.
On the Night-Shift
Can you imagine how annoying it is to wake up to the sound of barking dogs when you’re trying to sleep after a long night shift at work? Plenty of people work odd hours and have to sleep during the day as a result. This is when dogs are usually active and can make a lot of noise.
One of the big issues is that one barking dog can cause another one to bark, and so on. It’s like a chain reaction or a line of dominoes falling one after the other. In fact, this kind of annoying barking behavior can go on for hours at a time, especially if some of the dogs in question have anxiety problems or are very territorial.
What about Rescue Dogs?
One of the problems with dogs from a rescue is that you don’t always know what you’re getting. Most animal rescue organizations do their best to assess the dog so that they can go to the right home, but the truth is that many dogs come from backgrounds that are not always so well-known.
Many dogs in these situations develop anxiety disorders. This can lead to symptoms like avoidance behavior, fear, aggression, obsessive behavior, and excessive barking.
In this context, it’s very important for the dog to be trained properly to follow basic commands, but issues like excessive barking can prevent this from going smoothly. This is when a stop barking device may be useful.
Dogs in Training
Obedience training is also very important for many dog breeds. Dog psychology is all about a hierarchy of authority, and when a dog thinks it’s the leader of the pack, it can result in unwanted behavior such as barking and aggression.
Obedience training can help with these tendencies, but the problem is that some dogs will not listen. They may be focused on other things and distracted. Just when you’re trying to gain their attention, they may be too interested in a noise outside and will run off barking. This can disrupt any kind of training.
A stop barking device like Barxstop can fix this. By activating it, you can get your dog’s attention. Once you have their attention, you can focus them on the task at hand. This will allow you to train them.
What Other Devices Are Available?
Barxstop is harmless to both humans and dogs, but there are a range of other anti-barking devices on the market. The problem is that some of them are not good for dogs at all.
Many anti-barking devices are a collar that fits around the dog’s neck. When the dog barks, the collar may emit a foul smell or deliver a small electric shock. The problem is that this may be effective in stopping the barking, but it can also disturb the dog’s senses and cause them long-term anxiety. In the end, they may become a nervous wreck.
For example, this collar delivers a shock to the dog when the operator presses the control pad. The problem is that this can potentially hurt the dog and associate your voice commands and your presence with unwanted physical pain.
The good news is that this is not the case with Barxstop. It can stop unwanted barking safely and quickly, so how does it work and is it safe?
Barxstop – The Safer Anti-Bark Device
Barxstop stop barking device has the following features:
1. Safe to Use
One of the main concerns for any dog owner is whether or not the device is safe to use. The problem with some devices is that they deliver an electric shock to the dog. Apart from the fact that this can cause fear in the dog and cause them to associate your presence with pain and discomfort, it can actually cause enough fear that they may become aggressive.
The good news about Barxstop is that because it uses an ultrasonic frequency to get the attention of the dog, it is safe. Humans can’t hear the distinctive high pitched sound and dogs will stop any barking they are doing to listen to it.
2. Wide Area of Effect
Interestingly, Barxstop can actually have an effect on other dogs too. If you activate it, the high-pitched frequency will travel some distance and will even stop other dogs from barking as they pay attention to the sound. This is ideal in a neighborhood where many dogs are barking and you’re trying to get some much-needed sleep because you work night shifts. Just press the Barxstop once and suddenly all of the dogs in the immediate vicinity will sit up and take notice!
3. Easy to Use and Portable
Dog collars can be difficult to use because they are bulky and annoy the dog. The good news is that Barxstop is lightweight and can be carried in a pocket. Operation is also as easy as pushing a single button. This makes it an ideal gift for someone.
4. Works Rapidly
Dogs have far better hearing than humans do, and they can detect high pitched frequencies that are inaudible to us.
When you push the single button on the Barxstop anti barking device, it activates the ultrasonic frequency. Dogs can hear this at some distance and will stop whatever they are doing and listen. Their brains are attuned to their environment and will pick up on any sounds or other signals that seem suspicious or strange. In this way, Barxstop can stop dog barking very effectively and quickly.
Does It Have Any Other Features?
Barxstop emits an ultrasonic frequency, but it also features bright LED lights at the front. When the button is pushed, these LED lights activate and can get the attention of wayward and barking dogs. The twin effect of the ultrasonic sound and the LED lights will alert the dog to something new in their immediate environment and they’ll stop whatever barking they’re doing to take notice. They can then be calmed down and their attention directed to something else.
Furthermore, Barxstop features the following three distinct operating modes:
- Light: In this mode, the LED lights will illuminate when the button is pushed. This makes the device very useful as a torch, and it can even be used when you’re walking your dog at night and need some extra illumination.
- Light and training: In this middle mode, the LED lights are activated as well as the ultrasonic frequency. The frequency is not as powerful as it could be, but this is an ideal mode for training a dog and simply gaining the dog’s attention so they will listen.
- Light and barking: In this final mode, the LED lights illuminate when the button is activated, but the ultrasonic frequency is at its most powerful. This is ideal for not only getting the attention of your dog, but also stopping it from barking. The ultrasonic waves will also travel up to a distance of 50 feet, and can thus affect other dogs in the area.
When you really need to stop your dog or another dog from barking and being annoying, Barxstop offers a lot of functionality and features. It is easy to use and portable, does not need to go on the dog like a bulky collar, and is safe because it does not use electric shocks or emit foul odors like some products do. It is very effective if you want to stop dog barking.
