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.

This is the greatest product since sliced bread. It works wonders. No barking what a relief. As people and dogs walk by the yard the dog just watches with no barking. When I get the spray collar he even comes up and lets me put it on him like he likes wearing it. Anyway it works great on my dog and I'm very happy with it. I've even got comments from the walkers of babies and dogs they even stop now and talk. Great product. Thanks PetSafe.

This is the second collar like this I have purchase. Keeps our 9 lb Maltese barking under control. When it detects a bark or loud growl is sprays a little harmless centrinella in front of him. Chewy.com is half the price of Petco.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MoonWolf Not for a Papillon
I had high hopes for this product but it wasn't designed with Papillons in mind. It sprayed once and never again. I've tried adjusting the collar tighter and that didn't help. It was so right it didn't move when she shook her head. I refilled it every time I attempted to use it and ran it through its cycle of flashing lights to re-set. I've tried everything aside from getting my money back. Don't waste yours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ErnietheDoxie Great Product (with One Irksome Flaw)
Overall, this product has been a lifesaver for apartment living with my mini doxie.
What I like:
Collars adjusts to fit exact neck size of dog
Has just about completely stopped my mini doxie from barking when I need to keep him quiet
What I don't:
Spray indicator does not work! I found this out when a neighbor complained that he had started barking again, yet the indicator light was not on. I thought the collar was broken, but as soon as I refilled the citronella, it worked perfectly again, so the issue was just the unreliable spray indicator.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NeilT Not sure yet
The issues that I have so far are, 1) No indication when to stop filling the spray and 2) can't really tell if the spray is coming out. That latter may be a function of the "Gentle Spray." Still trying to tell if the collar is effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Modidly Excellent control
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.
