Automatically adjust correction
The bark collar begins with low corrections, but if excessive barking continues, the correction intensity will increase.
How it Works
Easy-to-use, with no programming required, the collar gives your dog a safe, consistent reminder to be quiet as soon as he barks.
No False Corrections
Patented Perfect Bark ensures only your dogs barking will cause the correction. Other noises or other barking dogs will not cause a false correction for the dog wearing the collar.
The bark collar is waterproof and submersible up to 5 feet.
Deters Nuisance Barking
Bark collars stop your dog's excessive barking. By giving your dog a harmless yet annoying correction when he barks, your dog will quickly learn to bark less.

The small unit uses vibration and sound to ensure only your dog's barking is detected. As he Barks, he receives a safe but annoying "static" correction. The bark collar begins with low corrections, but if excessive barking continues the correction intensity will increase. When used correctly the bark collar reduces (and in most cases eliminates) the number of nuisance Barks. Your dog will quickly learn the Association and stop the unwanted behavior.

As other reviews state, the static correction is hit and miss, it seems to depend on the temperament and tolerance of the dog as well. My Shih Tsu won't bark at all when she has this on, so I have the collar in the "off" position. Others, like Pomeranian and Cairan Terrier seemed to be un-phased by the collar until I shaved the fur down at the base of their necks for better contact. My Poodle will shake her head until the collar is on the side, so I have found placing a scarf-like bandanna prevents her shenanigans from working. My Chihuahua get's it, when the collar is on he goes from yappy little dog to silent mouse. My Scottish Terrier takes a little warm up - ramping up on the automatic static correction until she gets the point.
A few things that may help you:
As stated above, you may need to shave your dog's neck to get more optimal contact, especially for dogs with thick coats or double layered fur.
12 hours is the max these collars should be on - pin site necrosis (the pins burring into the skin) can occur and the collar must be left off until the skin is completely healed.
Not turning the battery to the "off" position cuts down on life span of the battery
Using a match to cauterize the cut end of the collar to prevent fraying once you have sized the collar to your dog
Removing bulky and over-laping collars helps with the collar sensing and delivering. (Make sure the dog has a plain collar with id on it though in case it gets lost)
The "side buckle" on the collar (as referred to in the manual that comes with the collar) breaks with time, making the collar slip/loosen and unable to hold the correct size (has happened to two of the collars)
Replacement collars are hard to find, and originally these collars had colored rubber skins that you could buy (helps in identifying one from the other.
Replacement batteries RFA-188 are ridiculously expensive (you can look on you tube for videos on how to remove the battery from the plastic case and use replacement batteries for a fraction of the cost)
Don't set it and go - stay with your dog, some get the "point" immediately, others will ramp up the barking and the collar follows suit. Although the collar has a safety shut off, it's upsetting to watch and can be prevented by just spending sometime with the dog to make sure they don't suffer.
I have had two DOA's right of the box - one never turned on, and the other, even though it's light changed failed to either sense and/or deliver a correction (keep the receipt and watch the dog to see if they respond)
There's no true way to test it to make sure it works - except as stated in the aforementioned statement.
The collar came off - this has happened twice over the past 8 years, I presume the dogs were playing and one happened to bite the collar right where it snaps together and the collar came off, what did the dogs do to them? Chewed them up of course!
I replace the battery in each collar monthly when I use them, typically in the spring and in the fall - the neighbor leaves his windows open; Summer and winter the windows are closed and he's inside his home, the barking goes unnoticed by him.
These collars are great at the dog park for two of my dogs that love to bark, everyone thinks how well behaved/quiet they are.
These collars are pretty decent, minus the pro's and con's I've listed they beat the alternative - the neighbor calling the cops, or worse him trying to hurt my dogs.
Hope this review was helpful...
The collar made a big difference immediately. She found it very distressing: letting out a loud yelp at the shock and ran to me for comfort - she was very confused. It was hard, but I left it on her. The instructions are very clear about needing to be consistent the first 2 weeks with it. Some dogs test the limits a lot and try to "win" over the collar.
After wearing it ~6 hours a day for 3 days the barking is hugely reduced at all times, not just when wearing the collar. She still reacts to noises by perking up and sometimes growling quietly, but she doesn't let out piercing barks. Well, very rarely when it's right outside our door. We have put the collar on her a few times when she got a bit excessive and it seemed to correct her.
I wish I had tried it years ago on her.
Update: I removed the other collar sensor and tightened this to a level that I would not leave on my dog all day and put a fresh battery. Still doesn't even phase my small dog

I have seen stray dogs, people with small yappy dogs, and children go by the chain link fence and still, NO barking! He is still able to give one or two warning barks when the danger seems real to him but that is it. I am very pleased. He knew from the very first day that the collar was associated with not barking. I hesitated getting the collar as I was worried about how he would adjust to it and that it might not work. However he does not seem to mind the collar at all and it seems to have no ill affect on him. In fact, he seems to be socializing more with the dogs and people that go by. Now I am working with him behaviorally as well to teach him no bark signals. Thank you so much as I was getting sick with worry as to how we were going to handle this problem.
