Do bark collars work on Great Pyrenees?

Written by Ariele Sieling

Barking Great Pyrenees-what a great idea! Pyrs are absolutely known for their endless barking. They are guard dogs and one of their main duties is to warn off predators.

Why did using shock collars work for us

Is this cruel? I would rather call it effective. Training with the shock collar, even for a very short period of time, ensured that we were able to bring Teddy on this month-long trip to southern Baja and back. She didn’t even bark in a hotel room and all our positive reinforcement training made her reliable in all her other behaviors. Even off leash around other guests in a nice hotel.

We didn’t achieve this incredible reliability through trauma training alone, of course, but rather through an endless program of positive reinforcement and deliberate, progressive socialization. I only use the shock collar for the behavior described here and end up having to apply incredibly few shocks. Right now, as we continue to work on Teddy’s focus around other dogs, I’d say I’m shocking her maybe once every two weeks. And simply wearing the collar is enough to completely stop her from barking. Teddy has learned that she shouldn’t bark when it’s on, so she doesn’t get corrections in that situation either.

Barking Reduction Ideas

Socialize, socialize, socialize. Let your pup experience the world around him and learn about different sources of stimulation. Socialization will allow him to determine what is «normal» in his world and what are potential sources of threat. Regardless of whether your pyre is 10 weeks old or 7 years old, socialization should take place. Dogs are most receptive to socialization as a puppy, but that doesn’t mean neglecting it at an older age. Great Pyrenees are naturally aloof so socialization will help prevent your Pyrenees from being suspicious of those around them.

Practice. Great Pyrenees have a relatively low activity requirement, but their exercise should not be pushed aside. A 30-60 minute brisk walk each day will help your pooch learn even more about the world and hopefully limit boredom barking. Great Pyrenees were bred to do work so they need opportunities to use that energy productively. Without proper exercise, pears will bark incessantly and/or become destructive.
