We were a little afraid of shock collars but our Terrier Mix (60 lbs) would not listen to us telling him to stop barking. In 3 days he stopped completely. Little "woofs and growls" are the most we hear from him. He's like a different dog. We needed to go to the 2nd level before he stopped. He's much happier not getting yelled at all the time.

This is our second bark collar. The first one we bought is a cheap one. And of course I never learn. I got what I paid for. I decided to buy something that has already been in the market for awhile and this is the petsafe brand. So far it's doing what it's supposed to do. Our dogs are behaved when they have it on.

I recently adopted and 8 year old dachshund and he has a slight barking problem. After reading a bunch of reviews, I decided to purchase this collar. This collar definitely does what it's supposed to do. My dog is 11 pounds so I keep it on the lowest setting - anything higher and it's way too strong for him. With the medium setting, he looked like he had gotten electrocuted so I would definitely be mindful of your dog's size and weight when choosing a setting. With this collar, his barking has decreased significantly. Now, when he sees it, he calms down and knows not to even attempt to bark - sometimes it doesn't have to be put on. I wouldn't reccommend leaving the collar on for long periods of time. As long as you follow the directions, you won't have any issues with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Katie27 Doesn't work for my corgi
I was hoping this bark collar would help with our barking corgi since our neighbor has started complaining about the noise. We decided not to get the citronella spray because our corgi loves water and getting damp and thought the static shock would be better.
I first started at the lowest setting(because I thought my dog was a baby when it comes to things) and quickly went to the highest b/c our corgi wasn't stopping with her barking at all or even noticing.
We even tried shaving her neck so the prongs would be more direct contact with her skin. Still doesn't work.
This product has been very frustrating.

The bark collar works well. She is a stubborn dog and it's not 100 percent quiet but it sure is a lot nicer for all the neighbors.

This collar finally has my Sheltie quite. I tried all the other ways to stop him from barking but he still would bark through the annoyances. I did not want to hurt him with a shock, but with all my neighbors complaints, I was facing eviction! Pet Safe has solved our problems. I followed the instructions and started on the lowest setting. It wasn't doing the job. I made sure to trim his thick coat under his chin and raised the setting to the second setting. That was it! It startled him at first, but once he made the connection to his barking, all barking stopped. The worst barking always came at meal times...he was excited and protective of his food. Now he is well behaved. I was afraid he would have a fear of the collar but every morning he comes right to me to put the collar on. I think he knows that the collar means no more yelling and discipline! After dinner and his walk I can remove the collar and he is good for the rest of the night. This collar has been a life saver. I recommend it to anyone with a head strong dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bella This collar worked like a charm!
Our dog is a recent rescue. She is the sweetest of all possible sweet dogs, and she has adapted so well to her new life with us over the past six months. She has come such a long way with her behavior, with the exception of the constant barking. We live in a suburb, with neighbors on each side - within half of an acre. When we let her outside, especially after dusk, she would bark non-stop! Whenever we would step outside to try to curtail the barking, she took it to be a game-- and would run around and bark even more! We then realized that it seemed that she would bark to get us outside, with the hopes of it becoming a game!! We ordered the PetSafe Deluxe Bark control collar-- and after just the first 2 barks with it on, it has reduced her barking almost entirely!! We have owned it for about a month now, and do not need to keep it on her [ she has only worn it three times - for less than an hour total ] She rarely barks now. It was the answer that we were looking for, and it worked so quickly!! It is so worth the money!

My little italian greyhound chihuahua mix has stopped barking. As soon as i put it on her i believe she already knew what it was because she did not let a yelp out. For the most part she is alone but because we moved she thought i was abandoning her when i would go to work. she would bark and even try to run out the door with me so i wouldn't leave her alone and i would return she would be waiting for me at the door. Now that i used the collar on her i only had it at the first level, she started getting the point and only a week later i had forgotten to put the collar on her. I even had cameras set up to see what she was doing at all times and she just kept sleeping. So she doesn't need it anymore!!
