Question: After trying all training methods, at what point should an owner consider using a bark collar for a younger dog?

Hello Cindy,

After trying all training methods, at what point should an owner consider using a bark collar for a younger dog? The dog I'm considering on adopting is an 8 month old English Cocker spaniel. The current owner has allowed me to keep him for a trial period. I don't reprimand when he briefly barks for his dinner as he's a typical Cocker and loves his food or when he's outside and sees other dogs. However, I've filmed him while I'm at work and have observed him barking most of the time in his crate despite plenty of toys including interactive, food toys, etc.

I live in a condo, so I have to be mindful of the other tenants. He's fine when he's out of his crate or in his crate while I'm home. He is not yet housebroken so I've not transferred him to an expen.


Cindy's Response:

If nothing else has worked for the nuisance barking then I would try the bark collar. I won't use a bark collar on a dog younger than 6 months. We use the Tri-Tronics Bark Limiter.

On Leerburg's Bottle Feeding article

Dear Mr. Frawley,

I found your formula on the internet several years ago, and have used it on any of my babies that were weaker than the rest, or fading syndrome babies, etc... it has been a life saver! I modified the formula you use just a little, to increase the calorie count/cc for my tiny little Yorkie babies (8 oz. just born with Colostrum, 4 oz. Pedialyte,1 raw egg yolk, 1 c. whole live cultured yogurt, 3 tbsp. Dr. Miller's Nutra Drops... 16 cal/cc, as calculated by a nutritionist). Because of your formula, I have not lost a baby since! THANK YOU! I had read that email advising you to remove your formula from your website... excellent response from you! Don't ever remove it!
