As many know, dobies are an extremely challenging breed and can be quite loud when barking. Our puppy was incessantly barking every time someone or something was outside (just being protective). She would even get on our children's wooden playset and bark at neighbors from the top. We put the collar on her, she barked twice and then never again that day. She has challenged the collar a couple of times, but the progressive correction has taken care of the job.
The only minus I have is I wish the collar would have been a snap clasp rather than a buckle clasp. The buckle clasp is a pain to put on every time we send her outside. Hopefully though we won't have to use the collar much longer.

The SportDog Deluxe Bark Collar began working immediately. She barked once at someone entering the house, yelped when zapped, and barked no more. She barked twice at the next one to enter a few hours later, yelped after each zap and barked no more. I put the collar on myself to make sure about how painful the zap was to her. I barked and had to pay careful attention to notice the slight zap on my neck. I concluded that her yelp was more startle than pain. This seems to be confirmed by the fact that she now rarely yelps when zapped; she just stops barking. In general, she barks less than she did before, even when the collar is not on. We take it off whenever she's out of the house in order to tell her that it's only in the house that she may not bark. It's not clear yet whether that works. We'd like her not to bark in the house even with the collar off, but though she then barks much less she hasn't stopped completely. Sometimes she's silent, other times she grouses (barks under her breath so as not to activate the collar). We've been using the collar for about 2.5 weeks.

I'm very happy with the results. I found the collar part hard to manipulate because it had been rolled up tight in the packaging and didn't soften or relax. I ended up cutting a quite a bit of length off so it wasn't in my way when I was putting it on. I like the idea of the rechargable battery. And the casing looks like it should last a long time.

We have two wonderful dogs, Golden Doodle and a Standard Poodle that alert the world of the mail person, Fed Ex, UPS and anyone coming into the area and the feed off each other to see who will bark more! Reluctantly, purchased and put the collars on both. After one maybe two barks problem solved! We call it their "Bling" and lock it up (charge) at night and they are excited to put it on in the morning. Now when friends come to the door they are obedient and sit quietly while we bring guests into our home. What a Pleasure not to have crazy dogs barking and acting the fool. Highly recommend purchasing this product if you dog is a barking fanatic!

And believe me, I've purchased every collar in PetSafe's line. I have tried rechargeable collars (which I find are the best for chronic barking). I have Weimariners (two) girls and their barks are loud and echos. This collar has a number of levels. I started off with Level 0 and haven't had to go up any. I suggested it to my heighbors who have Beagles.

It took me a month to decide what collars to use. I liked that this collar had to have bark and vibration to trigger the collar, no false corrections. I bought two, one for my weimeraner and one for my pitmix. I swear my highstrung weim is more settled outside because he s not going crazy barking at everyone. Now he sits and watches the kids playing! I use the progressive mode and it seems like the light static reminds them and they shut right up! Been using for two weeks and the battery is at halfway. Very easy to use. Should of got them two years ago! It does nt have a tone only correction as stated. Could nt work any better!

I have a 13lb yorkie-poo that barks at everything. This is the second bark collar I've bought and it works like a charm. 100 times better that petsafe. I highly recommend.

I had some doubts that this would work on my 2 jacks. It instantly stopped them from barking. It is not too harsh on them. It went into the fish pond with one of them and kept on ticking. Great product.
