15 Progressive Levels of Harmless & Effective Stimulations

The PetSafe Rechargeable Bark Control Collar gives you flexibility in training your dog to stop the unnecessary and excessive barking

It basically does the training for you - as your dog barks, the static stimulation starts at the lowest level and gradually increases as your dog continues to bark. Then, the static correction will stop as your dog stops his barking frenzy.

Indeed, such a feature makes the bark collar harmless and effective for sensitive and/or stubborn dogs alike.

LED Indicator for Battery Status

PetSafe Rechargeable Bark Control Collar LED indicato

This rechargeable bark collar from PetSafe is designed with a two-colour LED indicator to help you identify the battery status of the collar and avoid halting the bark control training at the wrong time just because the battery is flat.

3 red blinks for every 5 seconds mean that the battery level is low.

Once the battery is drained, you’ll see no flashes of the LED light.

Then, if the bark collar is charged, the green light will flash once every 5 seconds.

Temperament Learning Technology

This feature stores the data of how often your dog gets the correction from the bark collar.

This data helps the PetSafe bark control collar to eliminate your dog’s nuisance barking by starting at the lowest static stimulation level then by increasing as your dog goes on a barking episode… until the barking stops.

Now, the temperament learning feature uses the level that commonly makes your dog stop the excessive barking, as the new starting point of correction - the next time your dog goes on unnecessary barking.

Also, as your dog gets properly trained on bark control, the initial correction level will also be automatically reduced.

Built-In Safety Auto-Reset Feature

Of course, PetSafe has designed the rechargeable bark control collar with an auto-reset feature for safety and emergency purposes.

The bark collar will automatically shut off for 3 minutes if your dog barks for 15 times or more within 80 seconds - this is to avoid over-correcting your dog during an emergency or dangerous situations. Then, the anti-bark collar will automatically turn back on after 3 minutes.

Dual Detection - Vibration & Bark Sound to Prevent False Correction

This feature makes the PetSafe Rechargeable Bark Control Collar - PBC17-16000 even safer. This prevents the bark collar from falsely correcting your dog due to another dog’s bark (if there are more dogs in the area) or due to heavy noise in the background.

The bark collar has a built-in sensor and microphone that simultaneously detect your dog’s bark sound and the vibration from his vocal cords as he barks - only then it will activate the static correction to deter your dog from nuisance barking.

That’s why we highly recommend this anti-bark collar if you have more than one dog.

Durable, Waterproof & Submersible

This bark collar is designed with a full waterproof coating so you don’t have to worry if your dog regularly dips it into his water bowl - you can even let your dog wear the collar as he plays in the pool or when you give him a bath. Perfect for water-loving dogs
