Deluxe Anti Bark Collar Benefits Effectively Reduces Nuisance Barking
FOR MEDIUM DOGS TO EXTRA LARGE DOGS WITH DIFFERENT NECK SIZES.
The included collar strap is completely adjustable for medium to large sized dogs weighing at least 55lbs with neck sizes up to 28 inches. The strap is made of Nylon and should be comfortable for any breed. As with any anti bark collar, it is not advisable to keep the collar on for more than 8 hours in a day.
DURABLE BUILD AND FULLY WATERPROOF / SUBMERSIBLE
PetSafe is a trusted brand and this anti-bark collar is made with high quality materials for optimum durability. It is designed to be completely waterproof just in case your dog likes water and is submersible to a certain depth. No damage will be dealt to the collar if your dog dives into your swimming pool.
An innovative feature in this anti-bark collar takes advantage of sound and vibration to detect your dog’s bark. An internal microphone waits for the sound your dog’s bark makes and the vibration sensor detect vibrations on the dog’s throat. With dual sensors, false activation are less likely to happen.
When both sound and vibration are detected simultaneously, that is the only time the collar will activate and deliver the static correction to your dog. This is a useful feature when you are living in a place with other dogs around or when your area is noisy. Your dog may also be playful and may hit the collar on something which could be read as a vibration but a correction won’t be given because the microphone did not pick up a barking sound.
With this bark control collar for big dogs, you have the flexibility of 10 levels to help train your dog cut down or completely stop nuisance barking. The lowest levels are usually for dogs with sensitive personalities and are less likely to reach the higher levels of corrections compared to more determined dogs that may need a harder push.
Even at the maximum level, none of the corrections will hurt your dog. They are harmless and annoying but enough to get your dog’s attention and train them to stop excessive barking.
PROGRESSIVE LEVELS – USER FRIENDLY, NO PROGRAMMING REQUIRED.
The kit comes easy to setup. It includes an owner’s manual and a step by step training guide to help you train your dog. All it takes is to strap it on your dog’s neck and turn it on. The levels start at level 1 and progressively increase whenever the dog barks excessively. Once your dog learns to stop barking too much, the level will automatically decrease and give corrections at lower levels.
SAFETY SHUTDOWN – WILL NOT OVER-CORRECT YOUR DOG
The bark control collar with automatically shut down for 3 minutes if your dog barks several times quickly. This feature is to avoid over-corrections to your dog and keep the corrections to a humane level.
If your dog barks 15 times or more within a 1 minute and 20 seconds, it will shut down for 3 minutes. This feature helps when your dog doesn't respond quickly to the corrections and requires more training.

How the System Functions
The Bark Control Collar has two principal characteristics built to reduce the training phase and promote excellent behavior.
Initially, the Bark Control Collar has a unique patented detector that delivers the most dependable bark detection available. The Bark Control Collar uses sound detectors and vibration (double-detection) to discriminate each bark from other external noises. There is a Static Correction managed via the Contact Points only if the sound as well as the vibration in the vocal chords fit the exact same standards.
Secondly, the Bark Control Collar has a patent pending Temperament Learning System layout that's effective across many dog breeds as well as their individual barking behaviours. The Temperament Learning System includes applications that monitors how many corrections needed to significantly reduce (and in many cases remove) the number of nuisance barks.
The system has 10 levels of Static Correction. If excessive barking continues the correction intensity will increase with each successive bark until the barking stops, it begins with low-level corrections, however. Once the dog has learned to lower the barking, the initial warning corrections are lessened. As a built-in safety feature, if your dog barks 15 times or more within a 1 minute 20 second period, the Bark Control Collar will automatically shut off for 3 minutes.
Two Color LED: Displays good or low battery.
Sound Activated Sensor: Finds the sound of your dog’s bark.
Contact Points: Provide the secure Static Correction.
Sensor Probe: Finds the vibrations of your dog’s barking. Note: The Sensor Probe is not adjustable.
Fit the Bark Control Collar
Important: The correct fit and positioning of your Bark Control Collar is essential for effective operation. The Contact Points should have direct contact with your dog’s skin on the underside of his neck.
To guarantee an appropriate fit, please follow these steps:
1. Make sure that the battery is in the “OFF” position.
2. Have your dog standing comfortably (A).
3. Center the Contact Points underneath your dog’s neck, touching the skin (B).
Note: It is usually required to trim the hair around the Contact Points to make sure that contact is constant.
4. Look at the tightness of the Bark Control Collar by putting one finger between a Contact Point and the dog’s neck (C).The fit must be snug but not constricting.
5. Let your dog wear the collar for several minutes, then recheck the fit. Check the fit again as your dog becomes more comfortable with the Bark Control Collar.
6. Trim the collar as follows: (D)
a. Mark the desired length of the collar using a pen. Allow for growth if your dog is young or grows a thick winter coat.
b. Remove the Bark Control Collar from your dog and cut off excess.
c. Before placing the Bark Control Collar back onto your dog, seal the edge of the cut collar by applying a flame along the frayed edge.
ON/OFF Battery Module
The PetSafe® Bark Control CollarTM is packaged together with the battery module installed in the “OFF” position.To switch on the collar, use a coin to turn the Battery Module counter clockwise until the arrow lines up with the “ON” position. In case the collar is not going to be used on the dog immediately leave it in the “OFF” position.
To Insert and Remove the Battery
Note: Tend not to install the battery while the Bark Control Collar is on your dog.
1. Line-up the triangles on the battery and the Bark Control Collar (A).
2. Use a coin to turn the battery clockwise until the triangle lines up with the “On” position if you are putting it on the dog or the “Off” position if it is not being put on the dog right away (B).
3. To remove the battery, turn the battery counter-clockwise using a coin (C, D). DO NOT attempt to cut into or pry open the battery. Be sure to discard the used battery properly.
This Bark Control Collar uses a replaceable PetSafe® battery (RFA-188).This unique battery is made to make battery replacement less difficult and boost water protection.
A replacement PetSafe® battery (RFA-188) is available at many retailers. Make contact with the Customer Care Center or check out our site at www.petsafe.web to locate a shop in your town.
Common battery life is 3 to half a year, the way typically your dog barks. Due to greater use during your dog’s training, your first battery may not last as long as replacement batteries. To conserve battery life, turn to the “OFF” position when the Bark Control Collar is not in use.
Two Color LED
The two color LED indicator displays good or low battery. Good battery equals to 1 flash each and every 5 seconds with Green LED. Low battery equals to 3 flashes each and every 5 seconds with the Red LED. If there are no LED lights it is time to change the battery.
Methods of Operation
Temperament Learning Normal Operation
As soon as the Bark Control unit has been turned on, the LED pattern will flash as follows:
1. The LED will turn solid Green for 1 second.
2. The LED will turn solid Orange for 2 seconds.
3. The LED will flash Green 5 times to indicate that the unit is starting normal operation and is ready to be placed on the pet.
Note: Please go to page 4 for an explanation of the Temperament Learning System.
To Reset the Correction Level:
Right after switching the bark control off, the Temperament Learning System preserves the last correction level that the pet reacted to (Levels 1-10), and utilizes that correction level the next time the collar is switched on.
If you would like to reset the correction level to 1, complete the following sequence:
1. Switch the unit on.
2. The LED will become solid Green for 1 second.
3. The LED will become solid Orange for 2 seconds.
4. As soon as the LED is Orange switch the unit off, (do this by using a coin to switch the battery module to the “OFF” position.)
5. Wait 2 seconds with the unit switched off.
6. Switch the unit on (do this by using a coin to switch the battery module to the “ON” position.)
7. The LED will flash Orange 5 times to indicate that the correction level has been reset to Level 1 and the unit is starting normal operation. The unit is now ready to be put on the pet.
What to Expect During Use of the Bark Control Collar
Important: Don't leave your pet the first couple of times he receives a Static Correction.
Put the Bark Control Collar correctly on your pet and wait nearby until he barks. Most dogs will realize quite quickly that their impulse to bark is being disrupted by the Bark Control Collar and will relax and quit barking. Some dogs may bark at the initial correction as the Static Correction in the Bark Control Collar might be startling or astonishing in the beginning.
On infrequent occasions, a dog may enter a bark-discipline-bark-discipline cycle. If this happens, reassure your dog with calm, soothing tones. As your dog relaxes, he will understand that if he becomes quiet, he will not receive any more Static Corrections. The small minority of dogs that have this reaction will only have it the first time they wear the Bark Control Collar.
You need to see a decrease in your dog's barking within the very first few days that the Bark Control Collar is worn by him. Now, it is necessary to keep in mind the learning procedure remains incomplete. Dogs will "test" this new learning experience as well as increases their efforts to bark. This typically happens through the second week the Bark Control Collar is worn by your dog. If this does occur, remain consistent and do not alter your use of the Bark Control Collar. You must place the Bark Control Collar on your dog in every situation when you expect him to be quiet. If your dog is not wearing the Bark Control Collar, he may resume barking and his learning would suffer a setback.
To Avoid Skin Irritation from Occurring
For security, relaxation and effectiveness of the product please make sure that you inspect the fit often. If any skin irritation is observed, discontinue the use of the collar for a few days. See your veterinarian if the condition persists beyond 48 hours.
Don't attach a leash to the Bark Control Collar. This can lead to pulling on the Contact Points too closely against your pet’s neck. Do use a harness for attaching a leash and/or tags while using the Bark Control Collar.
