Stop Bark Collars, Perth, WA
Hi, I have an entire cavalier king charles spaniel that lives outside, and believes he is quite a good guard dog. He barks at people walking down the road (even though he can't see them), and also at the neighbours when they move around in their backyard. I work during the day, so am unable to do anything to stop him barking during the day, and am considering investing in a collar of some sort, to stop him barking, but would like some advice on what collar works best, but is still friendly. Thankyou in advance.

There are many products on the market, and I would use this only as a last resort. First of all I would suggest filling you back yard with as much environmental enrichment as you can find. Toys, bones, treats, a sandpit filled with hidden goodies, and also leave a radio on in ear shot to give the illusion of company. Your CKC is a Terrier so does require lots of stimulation to limit unwanted behaviour, since he is a outside dog I would also suggest a increase in exercise and maybe employee a dog walker! If all else fails go for a Citronella stop-bark collar, defiantly not the electric shock one. In this case you do get what you pay for so opt for a more expensive model if possible.
