The decision to strap a bark collar on Fido is not one to be taken lightly. If a dog barks endlessly, there’s something wrong. Putting on a bark collar won’t solve the problem. It will only stop the barking.
You don’t own a dog. A dog owns you.
When you ask a dog to stop barking, the dog has accomplished a goal … that is, to make you acknowledge that there’s something amiss outside your abode. The dog’s hard wired to provide this service. It is part of their purpose in life.
Think what it would be like to have one of your primary missions quashed. Think of the Star Trek episode where Spock and Kirk are outfitted with shock collars. Think of an afterlife, where dogs really do rule and humans serve.
Hey, shut up already!
