Description

The small unit uses vibration and sound to ensure only your dog’s barking is detected. As he barks, he receives a safe but annoying static correction. The bark collar begins with low corrections, but if excessive barking continues the correction intensity will increase. When used correctly the bark collar reduces (and in most cases eliminates) the number of nuisance barks. Your dog will quickly learn the association and stop the unwanted behavior.

Features

  • For dogs up to 55 pounds
  • 10 levels of Light-Touch static correction
  • Durable, 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-441

Either a real dumb dog or this product does not work, 4/15/14
by
I purchased this product in August of 2013 so that my new rat terrier would not bark all day long like our obnoxious neighbors dogs have done in the past. Lo and behold I am the new obnoxious neighbor whose dog barks all day long. This collar is more like a instrument of torture than anything else. She barks, gets zapped -practically flips in the air from the correction, barks again...repeat process. Like I said the dog is either real dumb or just does not get that if she barks she will get a static correction. She has worn it for eight months constantly (except at night) and she still barks and gets zapped, and barks and gets zapped etc. She has NOT "quickly learned the association and stop the unwanted behavior"!

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that the Elite Little Dog Static Bark Collar has failed to meet your expectations! Please know that the bark control collar is designed to get your dog’s attention and interrupt their barking pattern, not to punish her. It is a device intended to help you communicate to your dog when it is not okay to bark. However, the initial static correction may startle her. On rare occasions, a dog may get into a bark-correction-bark-correction cycle. If this happens, reassure your dog with calm, soothing tones. As your dog relaxes, she will understand that if she becomes quiet, she will not receive any more Static Corrections. The small minority of dogs that have this reaction should only have it the first time they wear the Bark Control Collar. For more information on your device, please refer to your user manual that can be downloaded at the link below, or contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.

Waste of more money, 4/6/14

This is the second time I've purchased a PetSafe product that didn't work. I've made adjustments to the collar and gone purchased 2 sets of batteries. This bark collar did not have any effect on my dogs barking.

Batteries are not lasting more than a week or two MAX, 3/15/14
by
Our unit MUST be faulty - we have lost count of how many batteries we have purchased. They are going dead OR the collar stops working - but I believe they are going dead - the flashing light no longer blinks after about a week or two - and the high pitched bark of our rescued 4 year old mini-schnauzer is CONSTANT when someone comes down stairs / walks in door / gets up from sitting - (Took her in when my aunt died of cancer). Does not respond to verbal correction whether calm or loud /stern. Ignore & she continues to follow you barking. etc. We believe she was possibly neglected as her illness progressed / and never trained appropriately to begin with - but need to barking under control. (along with other issues)
We really want this dog to learn appropriate barking - as we really want her to be a part of our family -

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing trouble with your Elite Little Dog Bark Control device. We do have a few troubleshooting steps that may help resolve your battery issue and get your mini-schnauzer back on the right training process. If the low battery status is flashing on your device only a few days after it was replaced, you may want to take out the battery for a few minutes and then replace it. Many times this will drain energy from the receiver itself and allow it to work properly. If you are still experiencing issues with your device, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677 for more troubleshooting tips.

Works, 2/22/14

I put this on my dog and made sure the contacts were on my dogs skin. When he barked at someone walking by our house the collar zapped him. I turned the collar off for now and he hasn't barked since.

excellent product, 2/21/14
by
We purchased this for our 16 month old pekingese. There are 10 dogs living on our block alone. When one started barking they all did. Everytime she was let out she barked, at people, other dogs , cars etc. We put this on her and after barking twice she didn't bark at all. The flashing light actually helps me locate her in the yard at night. Sometimes I don't even turn the collar on, just wearing it, she doesn't bark! Thank you for making a non injurious product that works!

Great customer service, 2/18/14
by
The collar works well when the battery is fresh, but the battery only lasts ~3 1/2 months. However, the customer service was great when I called in to complain about the battery. They bent over backwards to make it right. Wee Millie is a completely different dog with the collar on!

Keeps my little yapper very quiet! My little yapper actually likes to wear it. Battery has lasted 3+ months. Product works as advertised and is a good value.

Works Ok. Battery does not last long. Needs a snug fit to work!, 1/14/14
by
Had the product for one month. Two of them actually. I try to switch them off as much as possible to save the battery. But the tiny battery does not last long. I will be ordering a replacement which costs 10 euros each locally. You have to make sure it is fitted tight or it will flash red but will not deliver the correction. I get a bit concerned at times, I don't like any collar fitted so tight on my dogs. But that is the only way I can stop the repeated barking. The print on the plastic has already faded but that is not an issue. Only minus is that the device is expensive to maintain. Compared to other products I have used, the PetSafe feels solid and reliable. Other cheaper devices I had often shocked my dogs in vein, even if they just jerk or hit it with the bowl while eating they used to trigger for no reason. I have to rate it as 4. Only downside being the short battery life. Still don't know why it says that the battery lasts 6 months on the manual. One last thing, the dogs do tend to learn how to make other noises like howl or make cries that do not trigger the device. So yes, they are intelligent enough to learn how to go about tricking the device.

This collar flat out does not work. 90% of the time it won't turn on the way it should. I am pretty sure it doesn't shock or whatever it is supposed to do the 10% of the time it does come on right. My dog has had this on every time she is in her cage for more than a week and she still barks with it on. $100 down the drain.
