How Do Our Products Compare To Other Bark Control Methods?
Good LifeŽ periodically conducts comparative research studies of other bark control products, and we are often dismayed to discover just how many of these devices are painful, inhumane and ineffective. Whether it's intense electric shocks that confuse and punish the dog, or worthless sound sensors that trigger from external noises, most traditional bark controls cannot successfully manage your dog's behavior.
We pride ourselves on providing quality, humane and effective products to our customers. To ensure our sound sensors aren't falsely set off by a noise other than barking, we've added foolproof Bark Recognition technology and adjustable sound sensor sensitivity. Your dog will learn to make a positive association between his barking and the high-pitched noise, and eventually stop barking on his own. Buy yourself some peace and quiet.
Electric Shock Bark Controllers: A high voltage shock, sometime with increasing intensity, painfully startles your dog every time he barks. Though barking is a voluntary behavior and can be stopped, it should not be done through harmful and inhumane means. This type of bark controller punishes rather than teaches. The physical jolt and pain associated with electric shock confuses your dog so he fails to make the connection between his barking and the consequence.
Sound Sensor Bark Controllers: A low quality sound sensor can falsely read external noises or another dog barking and trigger constantly. This means the device corrects your dog at random times or when he's not barking- derailing previous teachings and confusing your dog from making any sort of connection.
Vibration Sensitive Bark Controllers: This type of sensor can be incorrectly set off by motion, jostling or some movement other than the vibrations made deep in the throat when a dog barks. This also means your dog is corrected when he's done nothing wrong - confusing and possibly disrupting earlier training.
Ultrasonic Bark Controllers: Some bark control products use one type of frequency to deter a dog from barking. This mistake limits which type of dog will react to the corrective sound based on size and personality. For instance, smaller dogs react better to ultrasonic noise, as medium to large sized dogs are more responsive to audible blasts of sound.
Sonic Bark Controllers: Many anti barking devices strictly use one type of frequency to stop a dog from barking. This blunder severely reduces which dogs will react to the corrective sound. More willful dogs may require both audible and inaudible frequencies.
Lemon and Water Spray: These bark control techniques are inconvenient and impractical. You need to be present when your dog barks and act quickly so the dog associates the spray with the barking. You also always need to have the corrective device on you at all times to correct your dog immediately after he barks.
Vocal Cord Surgery: Surgery should be last resort for chronic barkers. It is an option if the dog is physically harming his own vocal chords, cannot be controlled any other way and the only other alternative is euthanasia.
