This product has only worked semi-well for my 85 lb. dog's barking, but it hasn't solved the problem. I have a thick-haired dog and I have shaved the area where the sensors go on his throat, but I find that when left for a while on the dog, the sensor box always moves to the side. I have tightened it on my dogs neck till its quite snug, but any tighter and it will choke him. He already coughs sometimes from having it on. I have a Spinone Italiano, and there are folds of skin on either side of his voice box area. I position the sensors between this and tighten the collar down, but there is about a 50% failure rate none the less.I think it used to work better when I first got it, but I believe that my dog has gotten used to it and no matter how I change the adjustments, I still come home from being away and usually find him barking when I get home and the box is slightly to the side. But it does seem to work fairly well when it is positioned properly.

Our rescue group has more than a dozen PetSafe bark/training devices and the vast majority have worked very well. BUT when a high-end bark collar recently failed, we found that the despite its being "covered under warranty for the life of this product," the "minimum service charge" required to get PetSafe to honor its "warranty" was more than half the original cost (less than two years ago)! Our rescue group sticks by our adopted dogs longer and more fully than that ...

I had to make sure that I left a Review on this product and how it performed in my situation with my dog. Every time I would take my Fawn Doberman for a ride in my truck, he would bark constantly the minute he spotted a motorcycle,or someone on a skateboard or bicycle. The minute I put this bark collar on him for the first time in my house,and threw a ball to my other dog(Which Alway's Would Start Him Barking)he barked one time and that was it! I am still trying to figure out how the bark collar was able to set itself in that short of a time.This Product Worked Awesome For Me! I am Very Happy That I purchased this Bark Collar from Dog.com.

I have a house full of dogs and when one starts barking they all start. I purchased 2 collars for my dogs that would go outside and bark at nothing. They work great and have brought peace back into my home.
I really like that you can set the level of correction. I would highly recommend this collar.
