Does anyone have one, or have used them in the past to stop the dog barking unnecessarily in the garden?

You sound like our neighbours. Dogs go out and bark like mad around 23.00. And 07.00. And all manner of times in between, especially when they have to go out and it wouldn't be fair on the dogs to leave them inside.

We love our neighbours. Such kind, caring, sharing people who think about others more than themselves
Barking collars can physically and psychologically damage your dog and a lot of the time actually make your dog a lot worse in the long run.
If you google 'how to get my dog to stop barking in garden' there are more than a few suggestions that do not have the torment of a barking collar.
But involve you actually training them not to do it but that's part of the responsibility of having a pet.
Can you imagine having something around your neck so that every time you spoke it done something to you? It's cruel.

Dogs don't bark 'unnecessarily'.

The barking drives me crazy as it will bark for hours on end in the night . I have told them politely many times but still have to endure the nightmare of living next to a barking dog . They are such lovely neighbours otherwise . I’m at my wits end as to what to do with living next to this barking dog . They just keep the dog in the garden all day and all night and I feel sorry for it because it’s rarely taken out for a walk .


Report them to the RSPCA possible animal neglect. Sound like the poor dog needs a good walk and someone that cares.
Please God I never end up next door to neighbour's who think it's acceptable to let their dogs bark as and when they choose to. Must be hell.

Everytime it barks just bring it back inside and put it to bed. They usually soon learn not to bark.
We used to have a Bichon and had a collar that let out a high pitch sound when she barked. The noise just made her bark more, not sure about the vibration one but the high pitch sound one was complete rubbish lol

A collar to stop a dog barking is not the answer.
Why is your dog barking? Is it because they are protecting their territory from neighbours? Postman? Or is because the dog is probably bored or lonely; separation anxiety. Try long walks or a few a day if possible. If you can’t give the dog the time he/she needs the kindest thing would be to re-home to someone that can.

I could not have put it better myself. Take time to train and spend time playing and learning with your dog. He/she might need more stimulation.. definitely avoid a collar it's not humane and should not even be sold really..

Shock collars. Nope. Most definitely not my preferred method. Even after seeing the results when visiting friends. He used it to train a dog to respond to the whistle and it does so beautifully. Can be 200 yards away and it will drop to the ground instantly. The dog leads a very, very happy life. But no. That's not how I will ever train a dog.

Humane training and affection sorts many ordinary behavioural problems but few people have the inclination or time to stick at it (and that nugget applies not just to animals). But I do wonder if a collar would work on our lovely neighbours.................

Our dog isn't out in the early morning or late at night and doesn't cause any grief to our neighbours. We let our dog out for fresh air, exercise and a bit of sun bathing when the weather is good enough where we live.

We are considerate neighbours and I don't see the problem letting the dog out to do what comes naturally to it.

In agreement with what you said. Some dogs have the need to bark more than others it's all down to individual personality of the dog and they defnitely should be allowed to bark..maybe not all day long but just let them be dogs for goodness sake

A german shepherd.
My neighbor has a German shepherd and never allows it in the house so it stays in the garden all day . The barking drives me crazy as it will bark for hours on end in the night . I have told them politely many times but still have to endure the nightmare of living next to a barking dog . They are such lovely neighbours otherwise . I’m at my wits end as to what to do with living next to this barking dog . They just keep the dog in the garden all day and all night and I feel sorry for it because it’s rarely taken out for a walk .

Collars cause distress. You need to train the dog. Example at home and they bark at the postman, command no and when they stop treat. Behaviour control is down to training. Dogs are quick to learn it’s the owners that need to be patient and put the time in

They won't do anything in my experience. My mum had a neighbour with a dog that was kept outside for years,throughout harsh winters etc. A small wooden kennel and a blanket. The dog would pull the blanket outside the kennel & would get wet through in the rain & have nothing to sleep on.
The neighbour was reported and the RSPCA came out but as the dog had drinking water & food,they would do nothing about it.
Heartbreaking.The poor soul had no quality of life.Never taken for a walk,never shown any affection.

I can yes. Maybe you can't. You told me earlier to get lost because I said dogs shouldn't be allowed to bark as and when they choose.

Who's she?
The old yeller approach works a treat.
Dogs > Humans

Not that I'm a behavioural expert, but I'm sure the likes of Cesar Milan would say it's an anxiety issue, or an excess of energy (ie, not having enough exercise/exploring his territory as a dog should).

People always look for quick fixes, but they give us so much, we owe it to them to do the best we can for them in return.
Why people have dogs when they don't have the time needed to give to them I'll never know.

I can only imagine it must be a nightmare for the OP.

You can however train your dog not to bark when it's inappropriate or unnecessary. Makes for a happier dog, house and neighbours.

My dog only barks when someone is at the door or there are weird noises outside.

I would not dream of letting my dog bark outside when I have neighbours who may be sleeping, resting etc as you don't know if they're on night shifts etc. and everyone's day/sleep patterns are different.

Equally so I think cockerels and peacocks should be outlawed if you have neighbours within a mile of your house as they are as tedious as barking dogs, if not more so.
