Will another dog’s bark set off the Bark Control Collar?
Is the Bark Control Collar safe and humane?
Yes. The Bark Control Collar is designed to get your dog’s attention, not to punish him. However, the initial static stimulation may startle your dog.
Will the Bark Control Collar work for my dog?
The Bark Control Collar is safe and effective for all breeds and sizes of dogs, though it may be too large for dogs under 8 lbs. to wear comfortably. The system should only be used with dogs who are over six months of age. If your dog is injured or its mobility is otherwise impaired, contact your veterinarian or professional trainer before use.
Is it possible for my dog to learn not to bark only when the Bark Control Collar is on?
Yes. This is best accomplished by placing the Bark Control Collar on your dog only in situations where you never want him to bark, and never placing the Bark Control Collar on your dog in situations where you find it acceptable for him to bark.
I have more than one dog, but only one dog with a barking problem. Will it cause problems between the dogs if I keep them together?
It should not be a problem, especially if you follow the procedures described in this Guide.
Is the Bark Control Collar waterproof?
Yes. It is waterproof and submersible to 25 ft.
Can I attach a lead/leash to the Bark Control Collar?
No. This can result in pulling the Contact Points too tightly against your dog’s neck. Attach a lead/leash to a separate, non-metallic collar, making sure the extra collar does not put pressure on the Contact Points.
Can I leave The Bark Control Collar on my dog all the time?
No. Never leave the Bark Control Collar on for more than 12 consecutive hours.
What should I do if my dog’s neck becomes red and irritated?
This condition is due to the Contact Points irritating the skin. Discontinue use of the Bark Control Collar for a few days. If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian. Once the skin returns to normal, resume use, and monitor the skin condition closely.
