The PetSafe® Rechargeable Bark Control collar uses several features designed to shorten the training phase and promote good behaviour. The bark control collar has a unique sensor that provides the most reliable bark detection available. It also uses temperament learning to decrease and in most cases eliminate nuisance barking.
The system has 15 levels of static stimulation. It begins with low-level stimulations. If excessive barking continues the stimulation intensity will increase with each successive bark until the barking stops. Once the dog has learned to reduce the barking, the initial warning stimulations are reduced. As a built-in safety feature, if your dog barks 15 times or more within a 1 minute 20 second period, the Bark Control collar will automatically shut off for 3 minutes.
We got this as I had another conference call affected by the dog losing his mind at a fly and barking like crazy. I picked it up at our local creamery as an impulse buy , charged it up off a usb charger for a few hours and fitted it to the victim. He was chilled with the collar out in the garden and then let rip at some leaves . Nothing for a few barks then we saw he got a little twitch. He looked around confused for a few seconds and let out a few more barks and got a good leg twitching belt. That’s it , no more barking in the last 5 hours .
So far so good but I’m very happy with it as it prevents the endless ineffective roaring of his name all day !
He was on the wall facing the farm across the fields and usually barks until we bribe him and today he was up there without a peep . He doesn’t seem bothered by it at all and seems a bit more lively as he isn’t exhausted from barking .
Thank you very much for your review of this rechargeable Bark Control collar and letting other dog-owners know there is a solution for barking dogs.
As your dog should be able to lay the connection between his barking and the electrostatic impulse, you should see his barking diminish even more, and if he would be barking, it should be for a shorter time.
This collar will set an automatic starting level very close to where your dog stopped barking previously and continue to adjust this.
We wish you uninterrupted conference calls and a quieter and happier dog.
