This collar finally has my Sheltie quite. I tried all the other ways to stop him from barking but he still would bark through the annoyances. I did not want to hurt him with a shock, but with all my neighbors complaints, I was facing eviction! Pet Safe has solved our problems. I followed the instructions and started on the lowest setting. It wasn't doing the job. I made sure to trim his thick coat under his chin and raised the setting to the second setting. That was it! It startled him at first, but once he made the connection to his barking, all barking stopped. The worst barking always came at meal times...he was excited and protective of his food. Now he is well behaved. I was afraid he would have a fear of the collar but every morning he comes right to me to put the collar on. I think he knows that the collar means no more yelling and discipline! After dinner and his walk I can remove the collar and he is good for the rest of the night. This collar has been a life saver. I recommend it to anyone with a head strong dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bella This collar worked like a charm!
Our dog is a recent rescue. She is the sweetest of all possible sweet dogs, and she has adapted so well to her new life with us over the past six months. She has come such a long way with her behavior, with the exception of the constant barking. We live in a suburb, with neighbors on each side - within half of an acre. When we let her outside, especially after dusk, she would bark non-stop! Whenever we would step outside to try to curtail the barking, she took it to be a game-- and would run around and bark even more! We then realized that it seemed that she would bark to get us outside, with the hopes of it becoming a game!! We ordered the PetSafe Deluxe Bark control collar-- and after just the first 2 barks with it on, it has reduced her barking almost entirely!! We have owned it for about a month now, and do not need to keep it on her [ she has only worn it three times - for less than an hour total ] She rarely barks now. It was the answer that we were looking for, and it worked so quickly!! It is so worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WestTexasGal Working for my 3 yapping Maltipoos
My 3 little Maltipoos are incessant barkers--so much so that I began to worry that the neighbors were going to complain. Plus, they were driving my husband and I crazy. We couldn't watch TV or carry on a conversation without being interrupted every 90 seconds or so with a new wave of barking.
We put the collars on night before last and let the dogs sleep in them (without them being turned on), so they could get used to them. Then, yesterday morning we activated them. I hated to do it, but I then rang the doorbell and of course they began to bark like they always do. However, in about a nanosecond they stopped. One yelped and ran under a chair, while the other two just looked around. ("Who did that?!?!")
We assured the dogs that all was well and the rest of the day was amazingly quiet. There were a couple of little barks here and there, but nothing like normal. The collars came off before bed last night and this morning you would have thought they were still on. My husband returned from his morning walk and came into the house without one dog barking even once!
The collars are back on today, and one or two of the dogs barked once, but no more. I honestly think that after another day or so, we won't even need the collars.
Like I said, I really hated to do anything that would hurt the dogs, but it had gotten to the point that they were just too annoying to let them continue. Last night was so incredibly peaceful and the dogs didn't seem to be terribly upset by their new collars. I'm so glad we got the collars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shanika02 It works 100%.
I used the collar for the first time today for our yorkipoo.His barking is uncontrollable since we got him in 2006 we tried everything. Let me tell you this barking collar works instantly. I put it on him he thought I was puting his dog collar on to walk him but I fooled him. He barked & barking collar came on & he stopped immediately. Ran under futon. Doesn't like it but I do. It was set on level 3. I must say after all these years of barking my house is quiet in as little as 3mins. Unreal I wish I found this product sooner. I felt bad & took collar off. Now my dog refuses to bark just like that. When he was about to bark I just showed him collar & this time he ran in kennel & just laid there. I was in tears laughing. But for a minute i thought I was the Dog Whisper (lol). This product is amazing. Now I can come home at night without neighbors knowing I'm home. Well I should say my whole block. What a relief. This product is amazing. Now that I know it really worked for my dog Rosco.I might not have to buy another one for my Maltepoo Cody.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Renie304 So far so good!
Had it for a couple weeks now. Works good! It skips lowest setting now and goes straight to medium. Maybe it's a memory thing. But it stops the barking!

I never thought I'd need a bark collar. Was very hesitant to try one. We actually purchased this one while on the road . Our normally quiet dog we found could easily start barking with other dogs barking around us. We were traveling across country staying in hotels. This was a perfect solution for keeping her quiet. It did not cause distress like I was concerned but made traveling so much better for our dog and us.
