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.


  • For dogs 40 pounds and up
  • Fits neck sizes up to 28 inches
  • 10 adjustable levels of static correction
  • Perfect Bark® sound & vibration sensors - only your dog’s bark causes correction
  • Automatic safety shut-off: correction stops after 80 seconds
  • Waterproof receiver collar
  • Collar uses PetSafe RFA-188 battery (included)
  • Part Numbers: RFA-440

not sure if it is working as intendedor if I should try another harsher model, 10/2/14
My dog has learned that she can bark twice, pause, bark twice, pause and never get corrected. I have tried resetting the collar and it ends up the same. It only corrects her if she barks constantly (more than 3 or four times). I would like to find a collar that corrects EVERY time she barks.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback on your experience with the Elite Big Dog Static Bark Collar. Please know that our products are designed to stop excessive barking, not all barking, so if your dog is barking 2 or 3 times and stopping, the unit is working properly. He or she will be allowed to bark a few times before the strength of the correction increases. To help with this issue, we recommend to praise your dog when he or she does stop barking, even if it takes him or her 5 or 6 barks to stop. Every bit of reinforcement helps and praise can go a long way towards motivating him or her. For more information, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.

Unreliable, 9/11/14
I purchased the collar as a replacement for the old style big dog bark collar which worked well. The new technology worked okay for a few months then stopped working most of the time. I tried replacing the battery but that wasn't the problem. And, if I tighten the collar anymore the dog would choke. The collar doesn't detect barking 95% of the time so it is pretty useless.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that the Elite Big Dog Static Bark Collar did not meet your expectations! We can understand how frustrating it must be to have a product that does not seem to work for you or your pet! Please know that this device uses the dual-detection of both vibration and sound sensors to discriminate each bark from other external noises. This means that the collar activates only if both the vibration from the vocal cords and the sound from the bark are detected. If your pet has thick or long fur, it may prevent the collar from picking up the vibration of your pet's bark. This product is backed by a 1 year warranty, and our product experts are standing by to offer additional tips and troubleshooting in an effort to help you get the most out of your bark collar. For more information, please contact our Customer Care at 1-800-732-2677.

Customer service is awesome, 6/22/14
I purchased the bark collar for our very talkative German Shepard/Pitbull girl. She caught on right away. (I really wish the neighbors would get one for their barker/yappers. Marcie and Murphy (our other dog) were playing and the cap to the battery compartment broke off. I sent an e-mail to customer service inquiring the opportunity to purchase a new cap. [A Customer Care Representative] responded right back and offered to send us a new cap. I have not received it as if yet, but the courteous response was more than enough for me. I will defiantly recommend this to others. (And drop hints to the neighbors hehe). I even duck taped the cap on. It receives a very weak signal, but enough of a reminder to not bark. LOVE it. Thank you [Customer Care].
