Ultrasonic and Vibration Bark Collars
If you’re tired of the early morning wake-up calls from your four-legged friend or you’re exhausted from explaining that your pet likes the sound of their own bark at the dog park, we’ve got good news: There is an effective, humane bark control option out there. Ultrasonic vibrating dog bark collars offer a two-prong approach to bark control: First, they release a high-pitched tone, and second, they send a painless buzz to get your pup’s attention. Learn more about these unique anti-bark collars below.
How Do Ultrasonic and Vibration Dog Collars Work?
Ultrasonic vibration bark collars are triggered into action when your dog decides to speak up. They work by releasing a high-pitched ultrasonic tone and a mild buzz around the collar in response to your dog’s bark. As your dog begins to associate their bark with the ultrasonic sound and the vibration from the collar, they’ll stop barking in order to avoid it. When used with consistency, ultrasonic bark control collars can change your dog’s barking habits for good.

It’s essential to weigh the pros and cons of any new addition to your dog’s lifestyle, which is why we’ve outlined the advantages and disadvantages of ultrasonic and vibration bark collars below.
Ultrasonic and Vibration Collar Pros
These are just a few reasons why ultrasonic and vibrating dog bark collars are generally a good idea for dogs who bark excessively.

Ultrasonic and vibration bark control methods are more humane than alternatives like shock or spray collars.
Works Around the Clock
Whether you’re deep asleep, out buying groceries, or away for work, ultrasonic and vibration dog bark collars will monitor and respond to your dog’s barks so you don’t have to worry about them making noise while you’re gone.
Ultrasonic and Vibration Collar Cons
Although they’re very effective in general, ultrasonic and vibrating bark collars may not be the best choice in certain situations.
Impossible to Distinguish Between Your Dog’s Bark and Another’s
Because ultrasonic and vibration dog collars cannot determine where a bark comes from, they may respond to sounds that your pet didn’t make. This can confuse your dog and interfere with the training process.

If your pet suffers from territorial issues, separation anxiety, or other behavioral issues, ultrasonic and vibration bark collars may not provide a long-term solution.
Not as Effective for Extra-Large Dogs
While our BarkMute™Ultrasonic Vibration Collar works for pets up to 120 lbs, it's most effective on small and midsize dogs.
