Have Dog Training Questions? Ask a Dog Trainer.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Unfortunately, the dog won't be able to unless he is barking through the shocks of the collar and based on the info provided I doubt your neighbors are interested in having a dog on high alert for any suspicious activity in the neighborhood. Some people are quite sensitive to the noise a dog makes outdoors and while it may not be annoying to you, the neighbors obviously find it disturbing and the animal control officer agrees. My recommendation to you is to begin keeping your companion inside unless you can monitor his activity outdoors. You can call him back inside if he begins to bark, thus eliminating the need for a bark collar, and you can ensure that the neighbors and others in the neighborhood aren't scaring him to a point where he thinks he needs to bark.
