The VBC-10 Vibration Bark Control Collar has two primary features designed to shorten the training phase and promote good behaviour. The Bark Control Collar offers 10 combinations of Vibration Stimulation. When the dog barks, vibration is delivered from one of the two Vibration Points. The duration of the vibration is random, which interrupts the dog's bark. When used according to instruction the Vibration Bark Control Collar safely reduces and in most cases eliminates nuisance barking. The Vibration Bark Control Collar includes Perfect Bark™ technology. It uses both vibration and sound sensors (dual-detection) to discriminate each bark from other external noises. This ensures your dog's bark is the only sound that will cause the stimulation. 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 1 minute.
I purchased this vibration collar for my jack russell pup. He's only 9 pounds so I thought it would be a better option than static to start him off on. After the first bark my dog received a vibration and looked around a bit confused. Not even 5 minutes later, he was barking non stop without even noticing the collar. I checked the collar and it has a vibration weaker than a phone's vibration. This collar doesn't seem to be strong enough even for the smallest puppies. Just go with a static collar right off the bat and don't waste your time with this one.
> PetSafe Response: Hi Sam, thanks for taking the time to share your review. We're sorry to hear your pet is not responding to the Vibration Bark Control Collar. We do have a few tips that may help. You will want to make sure they understand that the vibration is happening because of the bark. Each time your dog stops barking, you will want to give them praise and a treat. They will then become more aware that the collar will only activate at the time of the bark. Should you have any questions or wish to learn more about our bark control options, please contact our Customer Care team who are happy to help.
