Petsafe’s Electronic Bark Collars are safe and won’t physically hurt your dog even on the highest level.
Not only do dogs vary in breed, size, age and the environment they live in - they also have their own personalities, temperaments, and reasons for barking.
Different stimulation levels on each collar is a great plus when choosing which dog bark collar will suit your needs. It is easier to train your dog when there are multiple correction settings... starting with the lowest then gradually increase if that level is not working for your dog.
This is best suited to teach your dog appropriate barking with no lingering after-effects - Watch our video on How does a Bark Collar work? Click here to watch the video
Not all bark collars are safe - advanced PetSafe Bark Collars have a Safety feature called 'Dual Activation'. This 'double sensor' makes sure that the bark training for your dog would be fair and consistent.
Bark collars that have Dual Detection feature detect vibration from your dog's vocal cords and sound from your dog to trigger a more accurate correction. This eliminates the risk of incorrect stimulation because of other environmental sounds or other dogs barking.
No false activation when other dogs are barking and when the collar bumps or is knocked onto a surface.
Having a dog who loves to play in the water, this feature would be a great help. You would not need to worry that the collar would break when they are playing on the pool or pond. The training would still be consistent even when they are playing in the rain or even swimming in the pool. Remember, Consistency is a Key to Good Training.
If you are not fond of replacing batteries every now and then, this feature can be a plus for you. No more extra batteries to worry about, just plug it and the collar has its power already.
A good bark Collar should have above average warranty on their products - which means you are covered for any breakdowns or manufacturing errors.
BTW... We have not experienced any warranty returns for this brand over the years we have been recommending them.
I PetSafe did NOT design their Electric Dog Collar to stop your dog barking completely but limit it to a level that will not get you a complaint from the neighbours and a visit from the rangers. The end result should still be enough for your dog to bark at intruders or during emergencies. Their instinct will take over and will ignore the stimulation delivered by the Electronic Dog Bark Collar.
