The DOGTEK BC-60 Bark Control Collar combines sound beeps with optional strong and weak static impulses for a proven and safe formula. The DOGTEK BC-60 bark control device provides a humane but effective solution to help train your dog to not to excessively bark. This bark collar has the ability to sense when your dog barks based on the vibrations caused by the barking, not the actual sound or noise of the barking dog. This is a great and unique feature since the collar can only be triggered by the dog wearing the collar, and never triggered by noises or barks from another dog barking around them. The static corrections of the BC-60 are simple and not harmful; very similar to what a human would experience after rubbing their feet on a carpet and touching a metal doorknob. This collar is recommended for all breeds 15 lbs and greater. Requires one CR123 battery (included).

Having three dogs I was able to observe three different behaviors. I set up all collars according to directions. I adjusted the sensitivity very low, about 20% and left them on "tone only" (no shock). All collars worked perfectly, making the warning tone. This caused no decrease in barking. I now set collars to "low shock".
Dog #1 figured the new system out in 1 hour and now just sits down and not bark at all. I have removed the collar completely and she remains a quiet dog.
Dog #2 was the loudest and would continue to bark through the mild shocks. I increased the shock level and eventually this wore her down after a few days. She now only wears the collar in the evenings and its back on "low shock". I'd say her barking has decreased 60%.
Dog #3 figured the system out and has decreased barking 80%. She constantly is testing the collar by barking quietly and gradually increasing the noise until a shock happens. I placed the collar on "tone only" and this works most of the time. She wears the collar as needed.
Overall I am very pleased with the collars. I hate having to resort to this, but they were getting out of control. The biggest success is: they only bark if they actually see another dog. No more false alarms. They don't bark as loud and they stop barking immediately when the dog goes out of sight.
Dog #2 wears the collar every night, but the others are "as needed". I think thats a good success rate and better than a noise ticket from the police.
I think these are an excellent collar and are not expensive.
-Escalating Control: audio warning 1st bark, quick shock second bark, standard shock 3rd bark. My dog doesn't get past the audio part. I'm hoping this promotes a long battery life. This can be adjusted but I like that sequence and it has worked well.
-Very accurate and adjustable. It comes with a set of shorter metal posts which is good for my short hair cockapoo. Longer posts can be used for dogs with thick coat. This is an important feature and should be offered by the more expensive name brands.
-Uses standard high-end camera battery. I expect a long battery life and can buy replacement batteries at most stores, no longer have to get them at PetSmart. The will also be much less expensive.
-Collar clasp has a secondary lock and is very sturdy.
-More complex than other units, controls are under rubber pull tabs and screwdriver is used to adjust them. I am technical but this may be difficult for some. The light bulb tester is a nice feature that allowed me to actually test the unit and see how it will work on my dog, but may be too much like a lab experiment for less technical buyers. Maybe a friend can help you in that case. I like the complex features because they allow the unit to be more precise and allowed me to test it.
This is just a note about all barker collars. I take off my dogs regular collar when I put on the barker collar. Especially when I leave the dog home alone with barker collar on. If your dog has a standard collar with metal tags the metal tags can trigger the collar when the dog shakes it head or scratches its neck. Again, this is a note about all bark control collars. I haven't experienced this with this collar because I always take off the regular collar.
