I don't think weight is the issue. The collar will work on any dog you can get the collar around. If the collar that comes with it is too short for your dog, put the device on a longer collar.

Our dog is 10 lb and it comfortably fits him. It definitely could fit a smaller dog, is adjustable, and once it is set it un-clips without re-sizing.

it is small and lightweight and the shock starts out light. when the barking continues, the shock compensates and gets harsher as the barking continues. if the barking continues over a certain time it will stop and reset so your dog wont get continually shocked. it is so small i didnt think it would work on my medium sized dog. but it cured him from his crazy barking. i used to have a 4lb dog, i would think it would fit him. you would of course have to adjust the collar. i had to adjust the collar out the max almost on my 20lb dog. i think your littles are ok with this collar.

Question

Will this work on a noisy male cat? Without a remote, how sensitive is this collar for detecting a loud meow?

We have an adopted male cat who has developed some really annoying habits over the years which include scratching closed doors when he wants into bedroom/bathroom and a really obnoxious loud meow that he uses non-stop. He starts about 5:00 AM every morning and lasts as long as people are in the house no matter how much food or attention you give him...he just barks and barks and barks. It's maddening.

it detected loud whining in my medium sized dog and stopped my dog from that annoying whining completely. he tried to get around barking by doing this whining thing, but it detected that, and now no more of that noise. i would think loud meowing would pick up on the collar. plus the medium size collar is super small and lightweight. i was surprised it worked as well as it did. also, petco has a return policy just keep the receipt. sorry, i dont know anyone who used it on a cat. hope it helps a bit.

OMG are you KIDDING me? Why would you want to? There is NO reason to "correct" or punish an eight week old puppy for ANYTHING. Redirection? Yes. Teaching concepts? Yes. Punishment? Absolutely not! When a baby animal cries that's because it needs something. If you can't tend to an eight week old puppy's needs, for Heaven's sake give it to someone who can!

At 8 weeks old, he is just a puppy and needs to bark to communicate. I think this is too early to use this device. I would wait until at least 8 months old. Try other methods first. I use "shh" and it get his attention. This is what Ceasar Millan uses.

I have mine just loose enough so I can stick a finger between the collar and my dogs. The prongs should not be digging into your dog'skin. It should instead just rest against the skin. It will still work if it slides a little.

Thank you for your purchase of the PetSafe Elite Little Dog Bark Control Collar!

If you haven't done so already, please ensure the collars are fitted high on your pets' necks, near the base of their skulls. Make sure each pet is standing when fitting the collars.

Check the tightness of the straps. You should be able to just barely fit a finger in between a strap and the contact points. While we do not want the straps to be too tight, the units should not move when your pets shake their heads.

As this unit activates by picking up a combination of both the sound of a pet's barking as well as the vibration of their vocal cords, the collars will need to be centered in order to work.

PetSafe product experts are standing by to help should you have any further questions about the function of your items. We can be reached at 1-800-732-2677. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. Eastern Time and Saturdays from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Eastern.

Thank you again for choosing PetSafe!

Thank you for your interest in PetSafe® products!

It is NOT recommended for a pet to wear a Bark Control Collar and Containment Receiver Collar at the same time. Only one collar device at a time can be properly fitted to your pet. This is especially true for small breeds.

When utilizing the Bark Control Collar, please remove the Containment Receiver Collar and vice versa. We do not recommend that a pet wear any type of electronic training device for more than 12 consecutive hours each day.

PetSafe product experts are standing by to help should you need more information about this or any other PetSafe Bark Control Collar. To speak with a PetSafe Customer Care associate, please feel free to call PetSafe Customer Care at 1-800--732-2677.

It's not a "system" each is an individual collar. I bought 2 for my 2 dogs. They work independently. Each one goes off the vibration of the dog's vocal cords so they don't set each others off.

answer 2
My dog has a REALLY slender neck as I'm sure yours does. I had to adjust it extremely close (one finger seems effective, in my opinion there should be two between neck and collar but it sags too much because our babes are so petite). I know this may sound redundant and no offense intended, but vocal commands are essential along with the collar. Choose a word that doesn't sound like anything you say very often. "hush" is particularly effective in my house. After the spray releases, before they even have time to start barking again, sternly speak the command, e.g. "HUSH!!!". By then, they don't even remember what they were so worked up about in the first place. I wish you luck as this has meant peace and quiet in my household.

Depends on how often you use it. I only use the collar when we go outside (about 4 times a day). Therefore, the battery life is still pretty good at this time (3 months later).

Yes a battery is included. The battery life depends on how many times your dog tests the systems. During the intial training phase the battery will be used more. Once your dog is trained on the system a battery should last a few months. If you have any other questions please contact PetSafe Customer Care at: 1-866-738-4379.

Thank you for your question! I am sorry to read that you are having trouble with the bark collar. Trimming up the hair (don't shave!) around the area where the bark collar should be can make a difference. Also, make sure that you are checking for a snug fit by checking with your finger under the metal probes themselves and not under the strap only. I hope this is helpful! If you have further questions or concerns, please call our Customer Care Center directly at 1-800-732-2677. Our office hours are Monday through Friday 8 A.M. – 8 P.M.
