Whether you live within the city limits of Eugene, Oregon or in the country, you have probably noticed some different actions on the part of pet owners. Many people with their stress levels escalating, their behavior have changed in regards to pets especially barking dogs.
Dogs bark for specific reasons and at times for no apparent reason. Many Eugene residents resort to surgical measures to curb the barking of their dogs. This is an acceptable solution for some people who do not want fines for their disruptive barking dogs.
Natural methods of curtailing the continual barking are numerous to consider too.
1. There are special made collars that are worn by the canine that emit an instant squirt of citronella. This creates an unpleasant odor which makes the dog stop barking and is not a health hazard for the dog. The two fold reason why this is effective is that it surprises the dog with the short, sharp burst of citronella along with the scent it provides. It is necessary to introduce a dog to a collar for this action to be used. The collar can be viewed and purchased online at: http://www.dog-health-care.com ranging from $ 50 to $ 80 Your purchase includes 300 squirts of citronella which when emptied can be replaced with a refill. A 6 volt battery with an adjustable nylon collar along with an owner’s manual instructions booklet complete the kit.
2. An ordinary soup can with a few rocks in it and then resealed so it can be shaken will be another option for barking dogs. This easy to create, barking deterrent weapon can be shaken when you are with the barking buddy. It can be portable to use whenever you accompany your dog for outings too.
3. Obedience training as a puppy can actually work on behavior modification to guide your dog into vocal correctness. Like any lesson for your dog to learn, your diligence is vital. Constantly working on this lesson will give you great performance results.
