When I got the collar I put it on my dog. I wanted to be there the first time he wore it to make sure that he didn't freak out from it. I rang the door bell so that he would bark. He barked a couple of times and that was it. I put it on him the next time I left. I have ring cameras that I watched him on and he did not bark at all. This has been a real blessing because I live in an apartment and my neighbors were starting to complain. I was skeptical that vibration would work and I didn't want to use a shock collar but it works and it's great!
My dog Raymond is a Shiba Inu & quite a barker. I tried & tried to get him to calm down & not bark at every little thing. I bought this noise & vibration collar hoping it would help. He doesn't like when it makes the long beep & vibration so he will look confused & whine a little but he stops barking. It has been working great for him.
I had very little hope this collar would actually work but it does!! You obviously have to do some training with it, it’s not magic. But it works!! They still let off an initial bark when alerted, but then stop. No more excessive barking!
Absolutely love it. I had a shock collar before and it traumatized my dog, could not use it. This collar has stopped almost all barking and no pain, just a beep. It hasn't even gotten past the 3 beeps to the vibration, and he is a avid barker. Highly recommend.
We adopted a 1-year-old Australian Cattle Dog mix who had not been socialized. She quickly earned the nickname of "Barkmaster 3000" because she barked at EVERYTHING. We thought our 10-year-old ACD who is a bark-once-kind-of-gal would teach her the Jedi ways, but we were wrong. Living in a quiet neighborhood, that's not cool. After trying lots of different training methods, we tried this collar. In less than 2 days, she has calmed down significantly! Matty now is also a bark-once dog (or never-bark), even when she isn't wearing the collar. She's clearly scared of it because she comes running, quietly whining but it's not terrible. My one suggestion would be a setting to allow for "bark once" because we do like the alert.
I have a 5 year old beagle/boxer who loves to bark, and extremely loudly at that. Not even 24 hours of having her collar on she was learning! Now she only gets one or two barks out and then she’s done. This has seriously been a life saver!
Life Changing!! I work from home with 4 Border Collies! Living on a corner lot, they would see someone go by and all 4 would bark, and I had to constantly worry they would bark during work calls. Now with the collars, I can leave them out during work calls with no worries of them all barking.
My Great Pyrenees mix has a very loud bark and his instincts tell him everything needs to be scared away by it to protect us (his flock)...birds, squirrels, airplanes flying overhead. This collar is really helping to curb this habit to a more reasonable level.
My dog is 80 pounds and very anxious. He paced and barked at everything. I was really hesitant about using a negative reinforcement tactic because I was worried it would make him more anxious, but the opposite happened! He doesn't bark anymore and is learning to self-soothe. My only issue is when it gets to the setting where it vibrates, it vibrates after the beep so often times he's stopped barking already and then it will vibrate. We're hopeful it won't get to that point as he learns more.
I’m so glad we bought the colar, it’s really amazing. Now my dog hardly barks. Thank you petpawsabilities.
No bark is what happens when we put the collar on the Great Pyrenees. Now to get one for the Yorkie!!
This collar has worked well to control the barking. We have a Rough Collie who used to bark several times a day at people on a walking path behind our house. Now she barks once and stops. Walking on the leash has also become easier as she no longer barks at other dogs and people. Wish we would have bought this collar two years ago!
We are pleased with our two no-shock bark collars, one on our 18-lb mostly Jack Russell, and the other on our 10-lb. terrier mix. They teach each other bad habits, and the latest seemed to be “team barking.”
They have worn the collars for several days, now, and it has helped a lot. It has not cured errant barking, but cut it way down.
The collars are easy to charge and to get on the dogs; they seem comfortable while being worn; they seem sturdy enough to last. All good.
They are slightly eccentric in the way they work. At times, the first bark will get a tone, while sometimes the collar lets them get a couple or three barks out before it does anything. Not a big deal, I think.
There is a bit of the “I’m wearing the blasted collar so I best not bark” reaction even when the collar isn’t switched on, so I guess a test would be to take them out on a leash but with no bark collar and see how they do when they meet other dogs and interesting things to bark at.
Perfect? No. Darn good and I’m glad we purchased them? You bet.

We have an 18 lb fluffy 2 year-old rescue dog. She only barks when someone comes to the house or she sees wildlife outside but we are going to take her with us for a long city weekend, where she will be alone in our hotel room for a few hours now and then. We have no idea how she would behave but wanted to be sure she would not disturb other guests. We also do not believe in harsh training methods. So far, the collar is working. She gets in one brief bark and maybe a couple of low-volume woofs, then quits. We are hopeful this is will be the norm.
I bought this collar on a day of desperation from listening to my dog non stop barking , we had an electric collar before but it went off at random times and it hurt and scared him . I didn’t really think this collar would work with just vibration . Wow! I was wrong and I’m super impressed! It worked right away ! My 8 year old lab is so obnoxious with barking - always has been . A leaf , squirrel , child , truck -everything ! I thought I was going to loose my mind. Don’t hesitate just buy it ! The silence is priceless !! Thank you petpawsabilities ! The quiet is amazing ! Now we can get back to having fun and enjoying our dog again without the neighbors scowling at us !
This collar is a dream. I wish we ordered one sooner. Since the pandemic started our neighborhood has been filled with people walking their dogs and the increase in foot traffic in front of our house has been driving our high strung Brittany crazy. After 2 days of gentle training - saying, "Quiet" firmly when it beeps, our dog is trained. When it beeps and I say, "Quiet", he comes and sits next to me. Pretty much a miracle for this guy, but he's smart and we have been consistent. We do take it off when he roughhouses with our other dog. I love it. Thank you for restoring peace & quiet to our house again!
It was not an easy decision for me to get my bloodhound Marge who was seriously abused when I rescued her a year and a half ago a bark collar. She had begun barking non stop outside to where it drove me nuts and I felt it was disrespectful to my neighbors. I would not get a shock collar even if I wouldn't use it I was scared I would on accident or it would malfunction. I prayed and prayed and I found this collar. She has only had to wear it twice and is doing amazing. Thank you so very much for a very safe, effective, humane collar for my precious baby girl
So glad I found you guys, I have a 5yr old German shepherd who likes to bark at every dog in the neighborhood, of course she just wants to play but it was getting out of hand. I wanted something that wouldn’t hurt her and that’s another reason why I love this collar. It definitely does the trick, she’s still learning how it works but she will bark once maybe twice and that’s it which is a HUGE improvement..we’ve had it for almost two weeks and I don’t let her outside without it. I would highly recommend it!!!
I thought that this collar seemed a bit flimsy. However, it truly works beautifully. Our dog hardly barks anymore. I love that it has only been charged once and we are using it daily for about two weeks. But we turn it off at night.
Up until I purchased this collar I had tried just about every other one on the market shock,citronella etc with no luck. I put this on him 10 days ago and he's been quiet ever since
We have 2 large St. Bernard/Lab mix dogs. We live in a wooded country area so there is a lot of animal movement all night long. Our dogs literally bark all night long at the different sounds they hear. It is not unusual to bark 7 hours straight! We were beside ourselves trying to get sleep at night. We were skeptical about this collar but decided to get one and see how it worked. We liked the idea that it didn’t hurt them and just vibrated. The first time we put it on one of our dogs we tried to train them the best we could but they don’t bark much during the day. It was unbelievable on how she reacted and stopped barking right away (Never barked all night long). We were so shocked on how well it worked we decided to get another one for our other dog. Our second dog hasn’t been quite as successful. First night we discovered his collar was too loose so we fixed that. He still barks but it has been probably cut by 2/3rds. So even though he still barks for several minutes (not hours) we are totally calling it a win! We have been able to finally get a good nights sleep with very limited barking. We highly recommend these humane collars, they work unbelievably well.
