We recently moved (Sept) to a little 1923 house in a pretty highly-populated residential area and our older dog (will be 9 this year) is starting to bark if people drive by or he hears the recess bell at the school two blocks away (which sounds surprisingly like our doorbell) when outside. That, in turn, sets off our 5 year old and our 11 month old- all labs. It wouldn't be a big deal if it was a single alarm bark but it can go on for a while and there is, in particular, a four-plex that literally sits about 10 ft from our back yard where this is occurring. I feel terrible for the residents as sometimes I can't get out there to correct the dogs because we also have an almost 5-month-old baby... who takes frequent naps etc.
I've had bark collars in the past that worked great (one was SportDog and one was TT)... wondering what the current thoughts are about good, reliable bark collars on the market? I probably need to get 2 of them, hopefully without breaking the bank.
Thanks a ton!
