Rated 5 out of 5 by Pitbullmom works on my stubborn pit bull
Okay, let me start by saying that I have the MOST stubborn, bull headed dog ever created....ever. But he is cute and I love him, so since we live in an apartment his barking had become an issue and I didn't want to have to get rid of him so we tried this as a last attempt. I am glad we did! I had no faith this thing would work because he seems impervious to pain ( he has eaten his metal crate, and steel crate liner) but it worked almost immediately! He yelped the first few times from surprise at being shocked, but I truly don't feel like it hurts him as much as it just catches him off guard, which is good. He wore it for about 2 weeks and now I don't even have to put it on him, all I have to do is show him I have it and he corrects himself. One Happy pit bull mama right here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by madihoov Awesome product, works very fast
The first time I put this product on my dog, he was startled, but it deterred his barking. Since then he has figured out that he can bark low and the sensor will not catch it. However, audible barking has decreased significantly, I greatly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Martuni Worked ok for me.
Hey Mongoose, I think the batteries are intended to be installed and left in. The battery is supposed to last 3-5 months (I doubt it), but the batteries are inexpensive enough to just leave them in until dead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KimNC Great product
This product works as stated. Note that this is a tool to teach, not a collar to be worn 24/7 and the dog left unsupervised! With consistency in exposure to situations that induce barking, the collar, along with praise can turn around a barking behavior that has become out of control.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fred59 No-bark collar
I am pleased that I purchased this product. While it has not eliminated all the barking, it has significantly reduced it. I would highly recommend this product. You do have to make sure you get it snug enough around the neck so it doesn't slip out of place.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mongoose Poor Quality of Material.
The direction where unclear, but the picture of a coin being put into the slot and being used to turn the battery till the arrows lined up seemed simple. Until I gave it a try! The groove for the penny is thin and weak. As I tried to turn it the sides just bent right down. There was nothing left to the sides after that so it was impossible to use a coin to turn it. Now I can only use it I struggle with a pair of needle nose pliers to put in the battery. (there's no on/off switch you have to remove the battery each time)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jthedogtrainer Does exactly what you need it to
No need to spend money on anything more expensive. This bark collar does exactly what it is meant to do. If it's not working for you it is probably a user error (make sure it's positioned right in front of the dogs vocal cords and that your dog doesn't have thick hair on his neck) or test the battery. If it's still doesn't work for you your dog probably just doesn't respond to it and you may want to try a citronella spray collar - those tend to work if the traditional bark collar doesn't. But this is the same bark collar that is sold for twice as much at Petco and it works great. My dogs wore it for two days before they caught on and they haven't worn it since which is what it's meant to do. Ideally it is a training tool. Glad I was able to find it on Chewy for such a great price!
