We've just tried the bark collar a few times but it works immediately and our Beagle seems to be getting the message. She still barks some but stops when we put the collar on her.
This device worked wonderfully for my labradoodle. Only took a couple of days for him to be trained.
We bought three of these collars for our three small (loud) dogs. We will be returning all three. I can't overstate just how poorly made they are. Here are the big issues: 1: The straps are smooth to the point of being slippery, so much so that they loosen during normal wear, allowing the collars to fall off altogether. 2: The controls are horrendous. You have to tap repeatedly on the "touch screen" for any response, and once the collar has been worn outside and becomes a little dusty, the problems worsen. Adjusting settings on these collars is an exercise in extreme patience. 3: They simply don't work. One of our sweet fur friends has a real problem barking at night. I put the collar on her. She barked for over an hour, so I went downstairs to adjust it. Before the night was over I had bumped the power setting all the way to max, and she was still happily howling as much as she wanted. The collar never kicked in with vibration or static. One of the other three collars seems to work, but combined with issues 1 and 2, I see no reason to keep them. They're just garbage. My recommendation? Spend a little more, or just let the dog bark.
had this collar for two months, out of no where it stopped turning on. it will take charge but when is connect, it will not turn on.
My five year old dachshund was a constant barker. I thought he was too old to stop but I was completely wrong. After one day just the sound of the beep noise calms him down. From a non believer to a believer, the collar works!
The band has to be cut to fit. Once cut, it frays badly. Other than that, it works ok.
These are great! I have a small dog and a large dog and these have worked wonders since receiving them.
The product I recieved already had scratches on the screen and plastic housing, so I was suspicious of whether or not it would function immediately out of the box. It charged fine and was easy enough to follow instructions, but the metal prongs did not work. Neither pair worked and did not register on the little tester included. Even after I put it on my dog, there was the issue of my dog doing normal dog things, which caused the screen to change all sorts of settings - even after turning on the screen lock feature to avoid that sort of thing.
mixed review, one works well, one doesn't. Charging issues with one of them. But my dogs have curbed their barking considerably and the neighbor is happier.
Does well beeps a warning, he is learning. Now need to work on whining.
