Description

The Elite Big Dog Bark Control Collar detects your dog’s bark using patented Perfect Bark™ technology to ensure only your dog’s bark causes the correction. As he barks, he receives a safe but annoying static correction. The bark collar begins with low corrections, and if barking continues the correction intensity will increase. When used correctly, the bark collar reduces (and in most cases eliminates) nuisance barking. Your dog will quickly learn the association and stop the unwanted behavior.

Features

  • For dogs 40 pounds and up
  • Fits neck sizes up to 28 inches
  • 10 levels of Light-Touch static correction
  • Waterproof receiver collar
  • Collar uses PetSafe RFA-188 battery (included)
  • Automatically adjusts to your dog’s temperament
  • Perfect Bark® sound & vibration sensors - only your dog’s bark causes correction
  • Part Numbers: RFA-440

Works Well, 3/17/14
by
I have been using this collar for 18months. I have a very big dog, who is scared of everything, and her reaction is to bark. It only took a few minutes of wearing the collar for her to stop. She now knows how the collar works and hardly ever tries to bark when she's wearing it.

Her reaction to the collars vibration is to stop barking and give her head a little shake, although a few times she has ignored the vibration she has had a small yelp. I like that she has the decision to stop her behavior with a small vibration before it hurts. She is happy to come to me when I call her to put it on, so I know it's not hurting her and is obviously not bothering her to wear it.

Using this collar has taken the stress out of worrying if she is being a nuisance while i'm not home and i'm not having to get up to tell her to stop barking numerous times in the night. Less stress and more rest for us both. :)

happy with this product!, 3/10/14
by
This collar works fairly well on our stubborn 4yr old PyreneesX. Not eliminating the barking completely, but stopping her before she gets too wound up, and significantly reducing the amount of barking. Also decreasing the volume of the barks, as she has a booming voice. You can really tell that she is trying not to bark, but, being a Pyr, she just can't help herself sometimes. Has had the unexpected side effect of calming her down in general, and making her want to be indoors more. Overall, we are happy with the effect this collar has had on our dog, and are not at all worried that it may be hurting her - she has never yelped or flinched, just makes a kind of chewing motion after being corrected, like she feels something funny in her throat. Price is reasonable. I only gave 4 stars because we have only had it for 2 weeks, so are still in the training phase, not sure how it will be long term. Also rechargeable batteries would be good.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are happy to hear that the Elite Big Dog Static Bark Collar has been working well for you and your Pyrenees mix! The bark collar begins with low corrections, if excessive barking continues the correction intensity will increase. This does help eliminate the nuisance barking. We welcome any updated feedback as your experience continues and please contact us if you need assistance with your new Petsafe product.

Money down the drain, 2/17/14
by
The collar itself was doing a good job keeping our golden/Pyrenees mix from barking, however, after only using it 7-10 days, the collar has come undone while she was outside. We live beyond city limits where dogs are allowed to run free so it could be within a mile radius of home. I'm disappointed that the technology is there, but apparently a cheap clasp is making me rate this product low.


PETSAFE RESPONSE: We apologize that the strap design has failed to meet your expectations and can understand how disappointing this must be. Please know that there are replacement straps that we can offer that have other style clasps. If you'd like to learn more about these straps, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.

GREAT PRODUCT!, 1/20/14
by
I got this collar a little over 3 years ago, and I'm very satisfied - I've only had to buy 4 batteries. I have a 70 dog and he would bark at every noise. When he wears the collar and barks you will hear him yelp after 2-3 barks because of the shock. Great product!

Too particular, yet the same issue again, 12/31/13
by
So after reading some reviews I am finding that I am having the same issue as the original poster of "Too Particular" It just does not work for our dogs (2) They continue to bark, and I continue to get annoyed.


PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that you are having trouble with the Elite Big Dog Static Bark Collar and we can understand how frustrating it can be when a product isn't functioning for you. The unit contains a microphone that hears the bark and vibration detection that feels the vocal cords when the bark is made. If the collar doesn't experience both of these sensations at the same time, the collar won't issue a correction. There are also a few troubleshooting tips that we can suggest to try if you are having trouble with the collar not activating. First, we recommend to ensure proper collar fit by placing the Bark Control Collar high on dog’s neck with the sensor probe centered on the front of the dog’s neck.Make sure to allow 1 finger to fit between the end of contact point and the dog’s neck. If your pet has long hair, it may be necessary to trim the dog’s hair where the contact points touch his neck. It also may be necessary to replace the battery if you notice a low battery status or no light on the receiver. If these steps have not helped improve the performance of the collar, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677 for further troubleshooting assistance and possible replacement options.

Works fine, 12/28/13
by
My German Shepherd barks at deer. The collar stopped her from barking almost all the time, although the intensity level could go even higher. Sometimes she will endure the shock and bark through it if really excited. I have had the collar for about a year. It is durable. The clasp system works well. I just bought a replacement battery. I am satisfied and would buy again or recommend to someone. This is also the third brand of collar I have tried. The others did not work.

Great, 10/27/13
by
I read some of the other reviews and I just haven"t had that problem. I put this collar on my dog and within a day he quit barking. It seems to work even if pushed to the side. I know it is working because he will bark when he doesn't wear it (this is getting less and less, but he knows the collar means don't bark). He is still capable of making all sorts of noises when he doesn't wear the collar and hasn't developed any neuroses from wearing it. ;-)

Works as advertised , 10/25/13

My young dog would bark at everything she heard, until the collar was introduced. It allows some the dog to make some noises but after the first few barks it's quiet again. Excellent product, I recommend it to my friends.

Too Particular, 10/1/13
by
In theory this should be a great product. I liked that it wouldn't just shock my dog whenever there was a loud noise because it also needed to send the vibration from him barking. The issue is that every time he shakes or scratches the collar ends up out of place and can therefore not sense the barking vibration. I couldn't make the collar any tighter either so there was just no way to make this work for me. Maybe it would work on a smaller dog who would have a harder time moving it around on their necks.
