Bark Control Collar


Petsafe Basic Bark Control Collar

The time you spend with your pet is precious, and you love having her in your life. When it comes to her behavior, you have very few complaints. Yet, there is one small issue you would like to fix – her constant chatter. Lately, her barking and yapping has become the soundtrack of your life. It isn’t exactly music to your ears, and you’re ready to do something about it. The Bark Control Collar is an easy-to-use solution that will tune out her barking.

How it works:

When your dog barks, the vibration of your dog’s bark triggers the sensor probe. The collar then administers a static correction through the contact points. It begins with the lowest level of correction and increases through the six levels each time she barks within 30 seconds of the previous barks. Once she stops, the collar will reset itself to the lowest level. When she barks again, the process will start over. Along with each static correction, the collar will also beep.

Static correction is a very mild tingle, and the collar adjusts the correction based on your dog’s temperament. She will quickly learn not to bark when the collar is on. As an added safety feature the Bark Control Collar will automatically shut off for 3 minutes if your dog barks 15 times or more within 50 seconds.

When using your Bark Control Collar for the first time, fit the adjustable strap to your dog and wait nearby until your dog barks. Most pets will quickly understand the new sensation is telling her to be quiet.

Product Features:

• The collar is lightweight and waterproof.
• Six levels of automatically adjusting correcting lets your dog find the level that is just right for her size and personality.
• Perfect for dogs 8 lbs. and up.
• The Good/low battery indicator alerts you when it is time to change your collar’s power source.
• Uses PetSafe RFA-67 lithium battery (included).

*You should only use a bark control solution during times when barking is excessive and not more than 12 consecutive hours a day.*

This will stop barking quick.
This collar fit her, but if her neck was an inch bigger it would have been too small.
Sara B. Leblanc
I definitely recommend this product for anyone who has a dog that won't stop barking.

I gave this product 5 stars because it definitely works as advertised. Be forewarned, however, that your dog's reaction may vary greatly from others. We purchased two. On the one dog, it worked great - after a few weeks of training, she stops barking as soon as we take out the collar and stays silent. For this dog, the device is worth it's weight in gold! The other dog, however, had very bad experiences - when she is shocked, she cries (she has a weird bark/cry/growl), but the device thinks she is barking and continues to zap, and she becomes a wreck. Thus, we can't use it on her, but on the other dog it works great.

A few other notes: it works by detecting vibrations in the dog's neck, not by sound (ie, another dog barking won't set it off), so the collar needs to be tight. If a dog has thick hair, it may not work as well. It will also take several weeks to train your dog properly with the device - the instructions indicate that you can't keep it on for more than 12 hours at a time or the dog may develop a rash. Thus, you will have to work the collar into your routine, putting it on and removing it based on your dog's bark patterns. Finally, the shock is definitely not painful (you can test it by rubbing it against your jeans, it's just a static shock), but your dog's reaction to this may be different from others. With this in mind, I do highly recommend this product! Good luck!

This is a must have if you live within the city limits, have fussy or close neighbors in proximity to your yard, or have a strict home owners association that prohibits excessive dog barking. I am a lab breeder and own 3 of these units. I am very pleased with the performance and function of this product because it stops "nuisance barking" by administering a minimal buzz that gradually gets stronger the longer the dog barks the lowest setting delivers your common "prankster hand buzzer" volt. And if your too squeamish about buzzing your dog, there is a "lemon spray" version of this exact brand that also works well too. Instead of delivering a buzz, it puffs a lemon deterant near the snout. For more stubborn dogs, the buzzer seems to work better. In no way is this harmful to your dog, but rather more humane discipline than verbal or physical correction by you, the owner. I believe all dogs are pleasers and want you to be happy with them. If your dog doesn't have a bark collar, most people tend to over correct or not be completely steady in the level of correction being a swat on the hind end, hopefully nothing more abusive, or other methods. The end result is your dog barks when your not around. That's why these collars work so well, it adjusts and corrects only as needed, and with as little force as needed, and will never over correct, or over punish, like we humans sometimes do when we're angry or sleep deprived due to a BARKING DOG!!!! By using this bark collar, the dog, in a sence, is making a choice whether or not it wants to continue barking incesantly, which is a much better training technique. This collar will still allow them to bark, don't get me wrong, but the ongoing nuisance barking will cease.Read more ›

My recently adopted, very excitable dog has had the collar on a total of
maybe 3 hours over two days. Already, *without* the collar on, he has
absolutely stopped barking at (a) the vacuum cleaner, (b) the neighbor's
perpetually yapping (instigator) dog right on the other side of the
fence, and (c) squirrels (real or imagined) in the trees behind the
house. The transformation is absolutely beyond belief. Get over any "I
don't want to hurt my baby" thing you may have going on - I did too -
and buy this product if you have a barking problem. I'm floored by how
effective this thing is and wish I'd known about it years ago. I realize
that training isn't complete at this point but I've seen instantaneous
and really dramatic improvement. Good luck and I hope you have even half
the success I'm having with this product. Note to those who got a defective one - try again!

Added 2 days after my initial review - it gets better! Tried this on my other young dog, adopted a month or so earlier, who is pretty good about barking except while I'm preparing her food. Then, she barks like crazy and runs back and forth. It's cute and no problem at my house, but it's not cool when we're visiting my mom's apartment in a retirement community. I stuck the collar on her before starting food prep tonight and got two (count 'em!) barks during the entire prep process. Normally I wouldn't be able to count the frantic, nonstop barks during food prep. This change was astonishing.

I have become more aware of the need to be on top of things since I have two relatively young and energetic dogs.

When my husband suggested that we get a bark control collar for our Pitt/Australian Shepherd mix, I nearly cried because I knew he was right. She was disturbing the whole neighborhood with her barking, and we knew that our tolerant neighbors would only be tolerant for so long.

I searched for hours doing research, trying to find the right collar, and I decided on this one for one main reason: it gives increasingly more intense corrections every time the dog barks, and it has an automatic shut off in case the dog freaks out.

When it arrived, the first thing I did was try it on myself. I wasn't going to put something potentially harmful on my dog until I knew what it felt like. The first correction feels like a small pinch, not even equivilent to a shot at the doctors office. Truly just enough to get your attention. The second correction is probably equivilent to a shot. The third got a little squeak out of me, and the fourth was clearly painful, but not enough to make me uncomfortable since the first three were so slight.

After that, I put it on my dog and waited for someone to knock on the door. When they did, she barked once and got a really confused expression on her face. She barked again and tried to sniff the collar. She didn't bark again. When we put her outside, she tested the collar, as I expected. On the third bark she gave a short cry and stopped barking. Ever since that test, she has only gotten to a third bark twice, and that was when a strange dog came near her fence.

Overall, I am VERY satisfied with this collar. After only 5 days of wearing it, she is generally bark free without it. We only put it on her now when we are gone for the day, as this means she is outside for a longer period of time than she is used to.
