Q. Our dogs bark when we are at work. If we put bark collars on them will they still be able to play together?
Hi Cindy,

My sister and I both have dogs at home that tend to bark when we are at work. We wanted to purchase the collars for both dogs but are concerned that this may limit them from playing with one another since they growl and play bark. Do you have any suggestions? Would keeping it on and off confuse the dogs? Thanks for your assistance.

A. I don't put bark collars on dogs that are physically together because if they start playing and vocalize with each other, it will give a correction. Some dogs will also get mad at the other dog, thinking the correction was caused by the proximity of the dog.

If you want to use bark collars on them when you are gone, I'd advise separating the dogs. Dogs have no problem with the collar being taken off and then put back on. They figure it out quickly. We use the Garmin BarkLimiter Collar.

The goal of our pack structure training program is to produce a dog that is calm and submissive and a dog that follows the rules of the pack leader. This DVD teaches people how to become a pack leader that their dog respects and loves. Most people are not born pack leaders. In fact, far from it. The majority of dog owners (many who have owned dogs their entire life) simply do not know anything about the instincts that control our dogs or how strong these instincts are in the domestic dog. Oh people may have heard that they need to be a pack leader or they may have heard they need to be an ALPHA with their dog but they do not understand what this really means or how to accomplish it.
