PetSafe Deluxe Bark Collar PBC19-12443 for Small Dogs with extra FREE BATTERY
The PetSafe Elite Deluxe Dog Bark Collar is designed for dogs from 3.6 kg to 18 kg.
This small unit barking dog control collar will correct unwanted barking through ten levels of self-adjusting static stimulation or 'Temperament Learning' automatic stimulation. As the dog barks, he receives a harmless but irritating "static" correction. The bark control collar starts with low corrections, but the correction intensity will increase if unnecessary barking continues.
This bark collar can reduce the number of nuisance barks or in most cases can eliminate the excessive barking completely, when used correctly. A dog can learn the association quickly and will stop unwanted barking. The PetSafe little dog bark control collar has a durable, waterproof receiver collar and can fit neck sizes up to 40 cm.

3 YEAR MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY
The PetSafe Elite Little Dog Bark Collar is covered by a 3 year manufacturer’s warranty.
WATERPROOF & SUBMERSIBLE
If you have a dog that loves water or just accidentally dunks it into his water bowl, you won’t have to go out and buy a new collar. The special PetSafe RFA-188 battery is also designed and built to help with waterproofing the unit.
DUAL BARK DETECTION – PERFECT BARK TECHNOLOGY
This patented feature takes advantage of dual bark detection by listening for barks using a microphone and feeling the vibrations coming from your dog’s vocal cords. The bark collar will not activate if the bark and the vibration is not simultaneous. This feature reduces the chance of false activations possibly caused by external vibration, noise or barks from the neighbour’s dog.
10 LEVELS OF ‘LIGHT-TOUCH’ CORRECTIONS – PROGRESSIVELY INCREASING
The 10 levels of light touch or low level corrections are specifically for small dogs with sensitive personalities. The levels automatically increase in level if your dog doesn’t stop barking and effectively controls or eliminates nuisance barking. This means all you have to do is turn the collar on and strap it to your dog.
ADJUSTABLE COLLAR STRAP – FOR SMALL DOGS
The PetSafe Elite Little Dog Bark Collar is designed for small dogs up to 25kgs with neck sizes of up to 40cm. The collar strap is adjustable so you get a perfect fit every time.

PetSafe Elite Deluxe Dog Bark Collar Owner's Manual
How the System Works
The Bark Control Collar has two primary features designed to shorten the training phase and promote good behavior.
First, the Bark Control Collar has a unique patented sensor that provides the most reliable bark detection available. The Bark Control Collar uses both vibration and sound sensors (dual-detection) to discriminate each bark from other external noises. A Static Correction is administered through the Contact Points only if both the vibration from the vocal chords and the sound from the bark match the same criteria.
Second, the Bark Control Collar has a patent pending Temperament Learning System design that is effective across many dog breeds and their individual barking behaviors.The Temperament Learning System contains software that tracks the number of corrections needed to substantially reduce (and in most cases eliminate) the number of nuisance barks.
The system has 10 levels of Static Correction. It begins with low-level corrections, however, if excessive barking continues the correction intensity will increase with each successive bark until the barking stops. Once the dog has learned to reduce the barking, the initial warning corrections are reduced. 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: Shows good or low battery.
Sound Activated Sensor: Detects the sound of your dog’s bark.
Contact Points: Deliver the safe Static Correction.
Sensor Probe: Detects the vibrations of your dog’s barking. Note: The Sensor Probe is not adjustable.
Fit the Bark Control Collar
Important: The correct fit and placement of your Bark Control Collar is essential for effective operation. The Contact Points must have direct contact with your dog’s skin on the underside of his neck.
To assure an appropriate fit, make sure you follow these steps:
1. Ensure 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 sometimes needed to trim the hair around the Contact Points to make sure that contact is consistent.
CAUTION: Do not shave the pet’s neck as this may increase the risk of skin irritation.
4. Check the tightness of the Bark Control Collar by inserting one finger between a Contact Point and the dog’s neck (C).The fit should be snug but not constricting.
5. Allow your dog to 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 required 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 with the battery module installed in the “OFF” position.To activate the collar, use a coin to turn the Battery Module counter clockwise until the arrow lines up with the “ON” position. If the collar is not going to be used on the dog immediately leave it in the “OFF” position.
To Insert and Take Off the Battery
Note: Tend not to set up the battery whilst the Bark Control Collar is on your dog.
1. Align 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 utilizes a replaceable PetSafe® battery (RFA-188).This unique battery is designed to make battery replacement easier and increase water protection.
A replacement PetSafe® battery (RFA-188) can be found at many retailers. Contact the Customer Care Center or visit our web site at www.petsafe.net to locate a retailer near you.
Typical battery life is 3 to 6 months, depending on how frequently your dog barks. However, 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 shows good or low battery. Good battery equals 1 flash every 5 seconds with Green LED. Low battery equals 3 flashes every 5 seconds with the Red LED. If there are no LED lights it is time to change the battery.
Modes 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 see page 4 for an explanation of the Temperament Learning System.
To Reset the Correction Level:
After turning the bark control off, the Temperament Learning System retains the last correction level that the pet responded to (Level 1-10), and uses that correction level the next time the collar is turned on.
If you would like to reset the correction level to 1, complete the following sequence:
1. Turn the unit on.
2. The LED will turn solid Green for 1 second.
3. The LED will turn solid Orange for 2 seconds.
4. As soon as the LED is Orange turn the unit off, (this can be done by using a coin to turn the battery module to the “OFF” position.)
5. Wait 2 seconds with the unit turned off.
6. Turn the unit on (this can be done by using a coin to turn 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 placed on the pet.
What to Expect During Use of the Bark Control Collar
Important: Do not leave your dog alone the first few times he receives a Static Correction.
Place the Bark Control Collar properly on your dog and wait nearby until he barks. Most dogs will understand very quickly that the Bark Control Collar is disrupting their urge to bark and will relax and stop barking. Because the Static Correction from the Bark Control Collar may be surprising or startling at first, some dogs may bark more at the initial correction.
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, 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 should notice a reduction in your dog’s barking within the first couple of days that he wears the Bark Control Collar. At this point, it is important to remember the learning process is still not complete. Dogs will “test” this new learning experience and will increase their attempts to bark. This usually occurs during the second week a dog wears the Bark Control Collar. 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.
In Order to Avoid Skin Irritation from Occurring
Risk of skin damage. For safety, comfort and effectiveness of this merchandise, please ensure that you check the fit of your pet’s collar frequently. If any skin irritation is observed, discontinue the use of the collar for a few days. If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian.
Do not attach a leash to the Bark Control Collar. This can result in pulling the Contact Points too tightly against your pet’s neck. You may put a separate non-metallic collar on your dog’s neck and attach a leash. Do use a harness for attaching a leash and/or tags while using the Bark Control Collar.
