Rated 3 out of 5 by Xtine Not my favorite
I have 2 PetSafe bark collars. The old one has a light that blinks to tell you the battery is good, and it delivers a standard shock. This new one supposedly has a light that blinks when the battery is bad, but of course if the battery were dead, there'd be no light, just as when the battery is good, so not the best design. Also, the ascending level of shock didn't work well on one of my dogs. He figured out that he can get in a couple of "free" barks before the collar bothered him. Then he'd just wait a minute or two until it resets, and bark again. The collar works fine on my more sensitive dog, though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by crazyanimallady Much harsher than intended
I purchased this for my young walker hound that enjoys the sound of her own voice and no amount of telling her to hush worked. I placed it on her and she almost immediately barked, then yelped loudly at the correction, evidently this led to another correction from the collar as she began to scream and run backwards trying to get away from what was obviously hurting her. I had a hard time getting her to come to me as she was terrified and constantly being 'corrected' each time she cried out in fear or pain. I got it off of her and will never put it back on. She may not be the most stoic dog but she is not overly wimpy and it left her quite traumatized. I do not feel that the product started at a gentle level and it should not have continued 'correcting' when the pet is yelping. I am very disappointed in this product and myself for doing something this bad to my dog.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Budsmom It worked quickly
Have a stubborn adorable rescue dog with territory barking issues. This collar worked within 4 times of him 'acting out'. Only downside is the challenge to adjust the collar size. Would highly recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by HEM7 Product very good
This Bark Control collar works if you have your 22 yr old granddaughter fit it correctly. I had it to loose, as I didn't want to hurt him. It would be great if the size of the unit could be created for smaller dogs. Bertram is a year old Cavalier, and it hits when he goes in and out of his dog door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikki8110 Great product
I'm so glad I ordered this. I was so afraid to buy a bark collar for my little one because I didn't want to hurt him. I'll tell you that he only barked one realized what would happen and he stopped instantly. Now he is so well behaved is amazing. I should have done this a long time ago.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SidP Simple (too simple?) -- It works
This is the 3rd collar I've owned for my dog (lost the first one, and the second one started shutting itself off). I definitely recommend it. However this newest model is simpler to use than the previous one, which had an on/off button that also allowed the user to adjust the intensity of the collar's response. Apparently it's just on when it needs to be on. I'm not quite sure.
What I do know: the collar works. My dog is small and has a huge capacity to bark. He has a lot of energy and being small, it doesn't take much energy for him to bark for (quite literally) an hour or more when he is out in the yard, stimulated by the birds and squirrels. With the collar, he might bark occasionally, but it's for less than 10 seconds at a time.

I exchanged this collar for the PetSafe "sound collar" I'm sure it's safe, reputable company, great service.
