In this episode of the myPET Podcast Dr Glenn and Aria are joined by Anne, dog trainer and canine behaviour expert from Pawsitive Connection. The focus of this episode is to discuss the problems with using an anti-barking collar on your dog to correct the problem of excessive barking.

All though they are often seen as a "quick-fix" to the problem of excessive barking sometimes they don't work or they can cause more issues that then need to be addressed. Anti-barking collars work by providing a punishment, an electric shock or spray of something unpleasant, when the dog barks.
