Effective pet training requires consistency. The PetSafe® Bark Control Collar automatically and consistently corrects excessive barking in dogs. When the vibration of your dog's bark triggers the sensor probe, a safe but annoying static stimulation is administered through the contact points. The Bark Control Collar starts with the lowest level of stimulation and then increases through 6 levels each time your dog barks within 30 seconds of the previous bark. If your dog does not bark again within 30 seconds, the Bark Control Collar resets itself to the lowest level of stimulation. Along with each static stimulation, there will be an audible beep. For safety, the Bark Control Collar shuts off for 3 minutes if your dog barks 15 times or more within 50 seconds.
At first I loved this collar, it worked perfectly for my yorkie and he was responding to the collar well. I had family coming over and put the collar on him to avoid him barking when they came in the door. When they arrived, he barked once, and the collar went off... and didn't stop going off. It shocked him for a good 30-45 seconds before I could finally get to him and get it off. He was flailing and screaming, and it took a few hours for him to come near me and trust me again. Absolutely horrible and traumatizing experience. If a product of this nature has the potential to malfunction in any way it should NOT be on the shelves of pet stores.

I have tried other bark collars but this one is the best. I just bought another one for my new addition to our family. Will correct but gives the dog a break. Thanks PetSafe

I recently brought this product. I have only used it for a week and have had positive results. My dog used to bark when I was away from home. Now he only does a couple of "woofs" then stops. The only thing is the quality of the collar. Small plastic clip, and nylon collar. i paid $200 nz for this product and think this could be improved on. I suggest a wider collar and a bigger stronger clip for this price.
