No bark collar for sheltie...
One of my friends has a sheltie she got from a rescue six months ago. The dog is six years old and rather deaf from scar tissue in her ears.
The dog barks a lot- when she is at the living room window and when she is out in the back yard. My friend is bothered because she can't "tell" the dog to knock it off, she has to go over to her and tell her. There is a recently added sheltie puppy as well. From what I've heard, shelties tend to be "barkers".
My friend just purchased a no bark collar for the older dog...I feel badly for the poor girl! I told my friend I feel it's inhumane, but she says she has no other options. I'm not a dog owner, so I don't really know a lot about these collars.
Any sheltie or other dog owners with some advice or knowledge of these collars? These dogs are never walked, just allowed out in the back yard.
To top things off, my friend doesn't even really like the dog. I almost wish she'd give her back to the rescue. Sigh. Awaiting your responses. Thanks in advance!
