How Much Does Debarking a Dog Cost?

Debarking is a surgical procedure that many veterinarians perform.  During this process, the vet will remove the dog’s vocal cords to permanently reduce the volume of their bark.  This process not only has many risks, it has also been outlawed in countries such as the United Kingdom; many activists find this procedure to be inhumane.  The cost of this procedure is going to greatly depend on the vet performing the procedure, location, as well as other factors.

    One thing you you are not taking into consideration is how cruel bark collars are. I have used them and they are far more cruel than debarking. They shock the dogs neck and can cause burns, holes in the neck and sores if left on for any length of time so you have to take them off and put them on and if you have a dog outside all the time you cannot leave it on them if they are a nuisance barker. The debarking procedure is very safe, takes less than 15 minutes to perform and while it may grow back, most times it does not. Spaying and neutering are far more dangerous and cruel and may actually shorten the lifespan of the pet

    I have not personally debarked any of my dogs, but have purchased dogs who already were. They were not unhappy. or having any problems because of it. I do think it is only a last resort. You have to take into consideration where you live, how your neighbors will feel if your dogs bark and how much of a nuisance your dog truly is as well as noise ordinances where you live. The dogs I have had that were debarked did not give up barking with training, or bark collars so there was little choice except to debark them. I raise shelties, my trick to control barking is to train the dog to bark on command. They then learn only to bark on command or when there is an intruder or they receive no treat, Works most of the time.
