This has been a lifesaver.....I never thought my backyard would be peaceful again ...until we purchased petsafe bark deterrent. My Husband came home with a BARK COLLAR for our BEAUTIFUL GOLDEN. I couldn't do it to my dog. I found this on line and it's been great!!!! I am no longer pleading with golden to stop barking,at all hours. It has been the best investment. It worked immediately , one bark he came running in. It did take time for him to adjust and now I can turn it off and he knows not to BARK. I do recommend turning it off during mowing the lawn or construction, may activate it. We LIVE in Maine and -20 temps & snow didn't harm it all!! We highly recommend this product to all dog owners or neighbors of barking dogs!!
I ordered two of these for my problem barkers. They don't bark when unattended but do bark at particular times in the evening. One thing I did not expect but I guess turns out to be an advantage is that these do not turn on and off - they are "on" all the time, so it is important not to leave them on the dog when you don't want to use them. They seem to be effective in stopping the barking although I think using them for training really depends on the dog. One of my dogs does not seem to connect the barking with the zapping and he is more fearful of the doorway where it happens than he is of the collar, or of barking. So I don't know how useful it is for "training" although it does stop him from barking. I think I would prefer a collar that is rechargeable (although thus far the replaceable battery seems to be lasting a while) and also one that can be manually controlled (multi-use - training as well as bark stopping) but for the price this was the best deal for my most pressing need!
This collar works great! My son moved to college and took his black lab with him.... Dog was irritating neighbors while he adjusted to new place, so this collar worked great at night so my son wasn't hated by his new neighbors!
This bark collar is not the best but not horrible. The first one I purchased did not work BUT they were quick to send me a replacement. The only problem I had was how to tell if it works. The product comes with a tester but the tester each time did not work. But I did try it on the dog and it did let out a high alarm sound before it sent off a shock. Im satisfied with it currently so I hope nothing about it will change and it will continue to work. Ive purchased several others on multiply sites and they quick working in a matter of days.
