PetSafe Elite Little Dog Bark Collar meets Simba
Simba is a maniac - DO NOT let the video fool you... Let her get off the property and run down the street and you would think she was a pack of wild hounds.
I recently did a home visit to chat about how the PetSafe Elite Little Dog Bark Collar would help reduce Simba's barking (and also settle her down).
It doesn't matter if anyone's home or not, if she gets a chance she's gonna run up and down the street barking.
I showed up with the PetSafe Anti Bark Collar and really couldn't understand that this little 'darling' was causing so much grief. Anyway, after a few weeks of complaints from neighbours and the threat of the shire becoming involved the owners called us and decided to go for the PetSafe Elite Little Dog Bark Collar which really was a great fit for a Little dog.
With the PetSafe Elite Little Dog Bark Collar it is designed to be very small but packed with technology and features to help retrain a dog to bark appropriately. Not only is it small but it gives very light corrections electric bark collar and it learns the most effective levels for the dog to reduce the barking.
Those Little PetSafe Bark Collar Features
There are a few great features about this collar, but there are three unique ones.
1. It's a very small and lightweight bark collar.
Remember that you are using this bark collar for small dogs. You don't want them to go around with something the size of a brick around their neck.
The PetSafe Elite Little Dog Bark Collar is probably one of the smallest units that I've seen on the market which is a very important factor with small dogs like Simba.
2. Dual Activation Barking - Sound and Vibration
The collar needs vibration and sound to activate. This is a great safety feature, if it doesn't get both at the same time it will not activate.
If for example, your dog knocked the collar on the stairs or rubbed it across the brick pavement, the collar will not be activated accidentally as it needs the sound at the same time.
3. The Amazing Temperament Learning Feature
It's pretty incredible that they can get this sort of technology into such a small bark collar. As the dog barks the Bark Collar will learn which levels stops the dog barking the most. so it will correct the dog at the more appropriate levels and leave out the ones not needed.
You can then re-set the unit by readjusting the battery to start the learning process again.
How do I Test the PetSafe Small Dog Bark collar to make sure it is working?
When testing the collar, you need the sound and the vibration.
You can get a wooden surface and blow in to the sound detector as you rub the probes along the wood very gently, you'll see that little red flash.
That means that the collar has activated and it's also learning the levels as well. Another safety feature is that it has a delay factor... It's not going to go off multiple times - if your dog goes BARK-BARK-BARK, it's not going to go UP-UP-UP.
It's actually going to use the delay features so your dog can have 3 or 4 barks before it goes off again so don't worry about too much on that.
How will my Dog React to the PetSafe Bark Collar?
Your dog has never experienced any form of automatic correction nor any form of 'static pulse' so remember that when you try it, your dog will get a surprise, this is only to be expected.
You don't want your dog running around the back garden going BARK-BARK-OUCH, BARK-BARK-OUCH, so do control the situation.
You can put a leash on your dog and step on it so your dog doesn't runaway. Then you can control the situation... of course more details on the training is included in the guide we supply with the bark collar.
So the main aim here is to help your dog recognise that when they bark the slight static pulse means to stop barking. In summary you are watching out for the surprise factor and allowing your dog to learn gradually.
The temperament learning and re-setting
Once the collar has a record, it can be reset. If you turn it off and then on again, the small LED test light will turn orange it will then flash green five times and say that it has reset to zero memory and will start learning again.
How do I turn the Bark Collar for small dogs off?
When turning the PetSafe Bark Collar off, you simply turn the battery to the off position and you can keep it and bring it out when you need it. The Temperament learning system will remember the levels.
One thing to look out for is, if the bark collar remembers that your dog stops barking at level two and all of a sudden your dog seems to get the idea that level two is not so significant, then you have to remember to reset it to allow it to go to high levels.
Fitting the bark collar correctly
When you're fitting this collar, make sure it is snugg on the dog's neck so that it will pick up the vibration from the vocal cords when baring. This little tag says don't use this collar with a lead to pull your dog around because you will end up pulling the two probes in to the dogs neck.
Water proofing and batteries.
The unit is waterproof which is pretty cool as there is the sound detector which is basically a microphone.
When you change the battery, simply grab your trusty set of keys, turn it in the off position, turn it the triangle, the battery pops out and that is the lid to the collar and that is the battery. When you get a new battery, you put that one in the bin and then get a new one, this gives you new o-rings that keeps it waterproof.
