Does not even work., 2/1/14
by
I thought perhaps the issue was the battery, so I got online and purchased the "2 now, 2 delivered six months from now" battery option in full faith all this collar needed was fresh juice. Put the first battery in, nothing. Second battery, nothing. I guess I'll get two more batteries in the mail in six months for nothing. Total disappointment. I'd rate it a zero if only there was that option.

If only I read the reviews!, 12/1/13
by
The reviews here tell the real story. The product is very inconsistent even following the instructions to the letter. And you only have one option for batteries. This is one of those times I did not research and I'm sorry i didn't.

Absolute junk: do not waste your money, 11/18/13
by
I have a couple of Dalmatians, and they like to bark. Unfortunately, due to a next-door neighbor, I've had to put them with bark-control collars whenever they go outside.

This collar is absolute junk. Does not work, does not deter the dog from barking at all.

Thankfully, I got my collar at Fleet Farm, and had bothered with an extended warranty, so I was able to exchange it for a different product--please see the review for that product--which retails for approximately 52 dollars--next. It uses an 8 dollar battery, too. Stay tuned.

hopeless, 11/9/13
by
I had high hopes along with guilt in this desperate purchase. I have a shiba inu and a puli that have the most piercing barks and they don't stop. I have yet to try it on the shiba inu because he has been quarantined inside for the past 2 years after too many running off incidents but the puli sends her days in a fenced in yard and I am concerned for the neighbors. I want to be a polite conscientious neighbor. this product worked for a month because she barks that incessantly. the only place to obtain new batteries is online. the replacement plan I just researched only provides 4 batteries a year. her barking has not stopped she just found a new way to bark quitter with a different sound. if she barks her normal bark, like at feeding time she yelps and I feel awful. I have mixed reviews. it is effective but the battery life does not meet our needs. my husband wants to sell my dogs due to their barking so I am still desperate but warry of spending money on something that may not work. ( ie that as seen on tv bark off, don't want to spend 50 bucks for a similar devise for it to be ineffective. ) please advise and make a longer lasting battery.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to learn that you are experiencing trouble with the Static Bark Collar. Please know that the standard battery life on these collars are an estimated 3-6 months depending on how often your pet may bark. The battery plan is designed for collars that need a replacement battery every 3 months. 4 of these batteries would offer a 12 month supply. While we do offer the batteries online, there may be stores local to you that carry them. You can find local stores that carry our products by using the link below.

This product is not working - very inconsistent., 10/17/13
by
I am at my wit's end with my dog's separation anxiety. I have tried EVERYTHING, literally, and now I tried the PetSafe Dog Bark control collar. It worked the first day.

Now, three weeks later, he barks constantly and it doesn't even shock him. Yes, the battery is installed correctly. Yes, I clean the collar and the sensor. Yes, I wash my dog's neck every week and this $60 collar is absolutely ineffective.

I am so disheartened. I am at a loss and of course, you can't return this product at PetSmart. So sad. Truly.

Do not buy this.

works fine on my yourkies, 9/25/13
by
Keeps my yorkies from barking. I can hear them yelp when they get too carried away. One is a little more stubborn than the other but eventually he is subdued. Easy enough to remove and put back on when needed.

Easy fix for barking Lhasa Apso, 9/22/13
by
My 22 pound Lhasa rescued dog (I'm her 4th home and she's only 7mo old) was an uncontrolable barker. I put the collar on--pretty tight since it had to penatrate all the hair--but it worked almost immediately. Even after the battery died after 2 years of use, she's still afraid to bark when she's wearing it. And she never seemed to be in any real pain or distress when it "buzzed" her; she'd stop barking and turn one circle in place, then go and lay down.

Dog gets quickly accustomed to the correction, 9/1/13
by
After the inital corrections...about one day. Our 25 lb poodle mix now barks incessantly. I assume he is just enduring the jolts and it does not faze him. The collar appears to work, by the beeping and LED indicator, but it just doesn't deter barking once the dog is accustomed to the correction stimulation. I am unaware about how to adjust the collar, or if it is
"automatically increasing to my dogs temperment".

PETSAFE RESPONSE:

We apologize that the Static Bark Collar is not a good fit for your pet. If your pet is not responding well to the static correction, we would recommend considering one of our Spray, Ultrasonic, or Vibration bark control products. If you would like to discuss this with us, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.

does not work, 7/29/13

My little 30 lbs. shelter terrier was not fazed at all by the collar. She continued to bark at everything. I would not recommend this type of behavior control for this type of high energy dog.
