Rated 5 out of 5 by HugoBoss Thinking of trying this? Stop thinking and BUY IT NOW
This collar was the best money I have ever spent on my dog. Wow. Talk about a game changer. I hesitated in the past because of the cost ("what if it doesn't work?") but Chewy.com's price was low enough to give it a shot. I thank the doggy gods every day that it was a deal, because we went from about 200 individual barks a day to THREE Barks. THREE! On the first day! The second day, he barked once. Less than a week later, we started forgetting to put the collar on him--He was down to one bark a day, or no barks at all. And you need to understand, this is a jack russell who's only goal in life was to scare everyone away. Birds, dogs, people, the moon. And the better part was, once the barking stopped, his other negative behaviors also ceased or were greatly reduced. He is a loving, snuggly, cuddly, sweet dog now. The barking just made him go crazy and he couldn't stop himself. He's not depressed, either. He's "retired." Seriously people, if you are reading this you know you need it. BUY IT! You won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katie Thank You
I never thought they would shut up! Thank you!! Two Italian Grey hounds that howl bark at ANY movement outside, good grief if a person actually comes to the door. Pizza delivery within 24 hours without a peep. Dogs can still "talk" to us without being sprayed, it's the loud barks that get them! 4 days later, I don't even need the collars on!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Angelsbooda Not for stubborn dogs
The first two or three times we used it our dog looked at us as if to say what! But then just continued barking. So I would not recommend this for stubborn dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuzanneinBC Amazing Product!!!
Living with 4 small dogs who like to bark, we had to do something. Hearing recommendation from Marin Nature Tails, CA, decided to take the plunge. Within hours, our dogs were quieter, surprisingly calmer & still able to give a warning bark or 2. Our fears of emotionally damaging our dogs and no more dog 'alerts' are put to rest. Collars have been worn for 10+ days & the batteries are still going strong. Easy to set up and appear to be comfortable. It's amazing to realize how much your dogs used to bark when they don't bark anymore! Thank you PetSafe & Chewy.com!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PeachyRoc OMG, SIR BARKS ALOT IS NO MORE!!!!!!
I have five dogs with my doxie being the second eldest, but due to his size (15lbs) the other four follow his lead because I have a small pack. Chuy barks for EVERYTHING and he does it mostly to get his way with his siblings because eventually even they get fed up and just walk away. He started barking at people even on walks lately, and I have been embarrassed. I got this after buying the outdoor controller that did not seem to be so effective on all dogs. I figured if I can get his under control the others too will follow. AND OH HOW IT IS WORKING in only 6 hours of use!!!! The true test was on the walk with all the dogs we pass along the way. In the instances he couldn't help himself and barked it was only once cause he didn't want the spray to run a second time. If you have a dog that barks too much, give this a try. Thank you Chewy for offering such and invaluable product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SnoopDog Works, but could be easier to use.
Once the device is turned on and placed correctly on the dog it does work, but it's operation isn't intuitive or very clear.
The device is not just activated by the sound of the bark, but the combination of the bark and the vocal chords vibrating. If collar isn't tight enough it won't activate the spray.
Difficult to turn on. You see a see a solid green light and then a solid yellow light. Then turn it off for two seconds and then turn it on again. At this point you have to see a solid green and then five quick blinks of the yellow and the device has been activated. Are you kidding me? What happened to on and off?
We are "dog people", so much so that we have more than two dogs and barking is contagious! These devices are very safe as we wouldn't use anything that would remotely harm a dog.

We have two Elite Bark Controllers. One of our dogs barked incessantly - any noise outside such as neighbors talking, car doors shutting, children playing prompted a lot of barking. Now the dog barks once or twice, gets hit with a bit of Citronella, and quits barking. Our other dog is a two people dog - i.e. only used to my wife and I. She barks at anyone else that comes into the house (and she won't stop). Now she barks once or twice - that's all. This is a great item and I'd recommend it to anyone that has a similar problem. We don't mind the smell of the Citronella but if you have a problem with the smell you may not want this controller.
