PetSafe Ultrasonic Bark Control Collar
Didn't work for our English bully - she still barked!
I bought this for our 7 year old English bully because since we've moved from a house to an apartment, she barks each and every time the outer door or any of the apartment doors opens/closes. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be doing the trick! I've tried tightening it around her neck somewhat hoping that this would resolve the problem to no avail. Thinking I should just return for a refund!

No impact from bark collar
Unfortunately the bark collar does not seem to make any impact on my 8 month old puppy one way or the other. If she hears a strange noise or a doorbell on the tv she continues to bark. If she sees individuals walking by she still barks and the barking is constant until out of sight.

IT'S ALMOST A MIRACLE
It's amazing how well these collars work. I keep them on my dogs at night so the neighbors will not hate me. They(the dogs) were keeping me awake at night trying to make them stop barking. Now an occasional/rare "NO" and the collars are all I need to guarantee that everyone around here gets a good night's sleep.

Been using it for several weeks. Definitely works. Remember that dogs in the vicinity of the dog wearing the collar will also hear the unpleasant tone.
The empty last star is because it seems to me that the unit is too sensitive. Putting a metal dog bowl down on a granite counter will activate the unit. A bark is a short, intense, discrete, blast of sound, and the unit might be improved by 'training' it to identify this type of acoustic pattern.

On the fence
My dog is very yappy so this doesn't seem to phase her very much but she maybe getting the idea still without a lot of negative punishment. I am continuing to put it on a couple of times a week.

Regret to not be able to write a review
After researching and finding something I felt was effective and humane, I purchased the ultrasonic bark control and it never made it out of the box due to my wife's concern of "hurting" the dogs ears. I believe it would be a fine training tool, alas, I may never find out. The rating is average due to my inability to actually use it.

Not really working yet -- will give it a little more time
So far, we're not seeing much success with this collar on our Aussie/Lab mix. She's a barker/howler when she's in the backyard and hears something, and we're trying to retrain her to bark less frequently.
There seems to be a little progress after about two weeks, but it's hard to tell. We're going to try a few more weeks before passing judgment.
