I got this bark collar because my mom has a similar one that beeps and does vibrations and I had an actual shock collar that has gone haywire. I love how this doesn't hurt but gets my chihuahua's attention so I'm not always yelling at them. I never knew this choice of bark collar existed and I am so happy it does!
I have 4 dogs. 3 female Border Collie/Australian Shepherds and 1 male Labrador/Boston Terrier. When they get excited they bark like crazy. We live in a wooded area and they see deer, rabbits, coyotes and javelina. They get excited a lot. When we are home the barking can get a little annoying. I purchased 4 NPS Bark Collars. With the NPS Bark Collars on they have calmed down a lot. I like that it does not shock them and they are learning the warning tones. Makes life inside the house much easier.
Love it ! We have two golden retrievers and one has a real high pitched bark.He barks at anything that moves. I was afraid this might confuse him because they have shock collars for invisible fencing. It works great! I can finally sleep and my house is a little quieter now. I need one for the other dog too. He’s taken up where the other left off.
This anti-bark collar is a must have for any dog that continues to bark, no matter what. It the most humane as it only vibrates and beeps, and doesn't shock your dog into not barking.
After a day of having it on our dog, he has almost stopped barking whenever someone is near. Before he would bark for 2 minutes at anyone who would arrive at the door, or hear a noise somewhere in the house, and now he's slowly learning to not bark at everything and we reward him for that with treats!
There is a sensitivity slider on the collar to help customize the collar to your dogs bark, and helps prevent false triggers.
It runs on batteries, so you don't have to wait to recharge the device. You just plug in a new battery and you're good for a long time.
Do not leave the collar on at night, as your dog could be alerting you to something happening and having the collar on will deter that.
I've tried a shock collar that would activate when our dog barked and it was horrible to hear our dog in pain because of a light shock.
I've tried a remote controller shock/beep/vibrate collar, but we could never find the remote control to use the vibrate/beep function in time.
This collar is the best anti-bark collar I've come across and is the least expensive and also the most humane collar too.
If you need a collar that is the cost of two movie tickets, and is also humane and doesn't harm the dog, give this collar a try.
I purchased two of the bark collars and it was absolutely amazing to see how quickly they worked. I was so happy to find a bark collar that didn't correct with electric shock or citronella spray! I tested the vibration on my arm to make sure it was not painful and happily found it to be a soft vibration. The sound alert before a simple vibration gave my dogs just enough humane warning to quickly change their minds on continuing to bark. After a few training sessions, my dogs now, at most, bark once and get the sound warning and then no more barking! I am a fan and highly recommend this product to all that battle barking dogs. Fast forward...It's been about a week now and there has been almost no barking, so lately we have been experimenting on how well the dogs would do with no bark collars on. The trash truck can go by, people can walk by, the door bell can ring and the dogs seem not to be interested anymore! Brilliant engineering!
