I love this collar. It really works. This is an excellent product. My dog was a serious barker, constantly barking all night. Now I can slept, and so can my neighbors. I Felt bad everytime she barked in the middle of the night. When I told my neighbor, I had purchased a bark control collar, He was very happy. Now everyone can sleep. I've also told my friends about this collar. Thanks it's great.
This one relatively inexpensive no bark collar worked better than expected. After only 1 day of use the dogs barking is under control. Even with sending the dog out with out the collar there is a greatly reduced amount of barking.
Used the collar the first night and was able to sleep till the alarm went off. In two nights of use all i needed to do after that was show my dog the collar and he was quite. I have not had to use the collar in a few days. Great price and works as expected.
If you are reading the reviews for this product, great! I appreciated people taking time to write them. They helped. First let me say that our dog barked 3 times the first day. No joke! It's been a few days now and all is well. Second, the bad review needs a disclaimer: The maltese is a long hair dog. The collar may have been too loose or the probes weren't getting through the long hair. Try clipping away some hair around the neck if you have a long hair dog. I hope this was helpful and if you do buy this, I hope it works as well for you.
We decided to get these collars for our four dogs: two Poms, and two German Short Hair Pointers. One would start barking, and then the rest would join in. It was frustrating to us, and I am sure our neighbors didn't appreciate it either. We tried the spray collar, but in the end the dogs didn't mind getting all wet. We tried the sonic sound makers, but they, too, went ignored after a while.
My husband did NOT want to get the collars because he thought that they seemed cruel, but we read up on them and research showed they were not.
We put them on our 4 dogs and all of them, after only a couple attempts at barking, decided to stop. That was all it took and I don't think any of them have EVER tried barking again if their collar is on. We read some reviews where people said that their collar made their dog bark worse, but that wasn't the case for any of our dogs.
We don't keep these on the dogs all of the time, and they definitely know they can bark when they aren't wearing them. But the second they go on, the dogs don't even try.
We were concerned that the collars would be too big for our Poms (since the weight requirement said something like 8 pounds min) and they do look a little strange on our 5 pound dogs, but it's not been a problem. If you think the voltage is too high for your little dog, I believe there are instructions on how to lessen the voltage.
Bottom line: We and our neighbors can now have a peaceful evening without the sound of 4 dogs barking!
These collars were the best thing I ever did for my family of pups. Schnauzers are naturally excitable dogs, and they bark at everything - from visitors to lizards, of which we have a lot. Unfortunately, the akita caught on to their habit and it was never quiet. The FIRST night I put these on them, stone silence! I actually had to go looking for one of them because I couldn't figure out where he had gone, I was so used to him barking all the time! We had a large group of people over the first night, and someone actually said, wait, you have dogs? where are they? And they were in the room right next door! Its amazing the transformation - even walking them has become easier, and they are far better behaved. The beep that comes right before the static has been great as well, because it serves as a warning to the dog, and he stops his poor behavior immediately. Cannot say enough good things about this product!!
Well, we have 10 dogs on our land and let me tell you, when one howls or barks, they all howl and bark! After awhile, this gets annoying and frustrating to closer neighbors and our sleeping at night. So, we bought these collars for the over-barkers and in one day, they learned howling and over-barking is no fun any more :-). We truly LOVE and adore our animals and would NEVER be cruel to our babies(dogs); however, annoying animals become frustrating to their owners and then we cannot truly enjoy their wonderful personalities now can we? So, don't think these collars are cruel, I literally let it shock me and it's very uncomfortable not really painful, so to speak. We enjoy our dogs more now and can't wait to see them each day as they are what they are suppose to be "Man's Best Friend", not our worst bark and howl enemies/nightmares. Do take the collar off on occasion or when you leave for a day, just to give them that little bark freedom and then they know when that collar goes back on...it's time for peace. We do keep a couple dogs without collars, cause they are only barkers when intruders are around and that's needed. Take care and God bless. :-)
Awesome product! works well on our three dogs, the only thing it doesnt register is the whining we get sometimes. I'm very happy on the price and the quality of the product! Now I can come and go as I please from home and not worry about the dogs barking their heads off! Would highly recommend!
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight
We have 2 English Mastiffs and we moved to a new home the dogs were barking like crazy adpating to the new surroundings (wild rabbits, skunks and lots of people walking by walking there pets) every new sound they barked this device shut them up in less then 10 minutes. I know our neighbors are happy! Highy recommened. Easy to set up and install.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Easy to Install
I bought this product because the beagle I rescued barked nonstop, even on walks she would announciate her way through the entire walk, and worst yet she would totally ignore any/all correction I made. I am an experienced dog traininer, nothing was working, I love her so much, but if I couldn't stop her bad behavior I would have had to rehome her yet again. I bought this collar (from a "pet store", paid $15 more for it). I put the collar on her, and with a couple of barks her and their ☆call them oops I forgot barks, I've had the collar for 8 months and she only barks if the collar isn't on, even at that she doesn't do it excessively even when the collar isn't on. The collar works so well I bought one for the dachshund as well. Only my 2nd collar I did buy at Home Depot for a lot less than than I've ever seen it at any of the pet stores. I will say though, the first month of use you have to have the neck area completely clear of excessive hair and collars, the prongs must be tight (almost to the piont that it seems to be choking them) once the collar has been "established" you can loosen it, I had to do this for my Long Haired Dachshund, no worries it grows back
My beagle/basset rescue was barking and howling in his crate and this was the last resort before having to possibly give him back. I put it on him and he barked once and then again and that was it! I left for a few hours to test him and asked my neighbor to listen out and tell me what she heard and she said he barked once or twice but that has been it! No more barks when I leave, am gone or come home. My dog walker says he doesn't make a peep midday. He only wears it in his crate to associate quiet time with the crate. I'm would give 5 stars but the fit isn't snug enough without the prongs choking him so a better collar style would be helpful. It tends to slip towards his side or back neck. However, he figured out the collar means silence time! I normally never post a review but for someone like me desperate for a solution, this might just be it for you! Oh, and don't go to a pet store chain as they will overcharge for this exact product by at least $10.
