No. The collar is designed to detect vibrations from the dogs neck (bark), and sound of his bark. It will not detect either of these from the other dog unless you put the collar on him/her.

I have two dogs who have barking issues and, also have visiting dogs.
The cool part is that the collar requires sound AND a vibration to trigger the correction. So, unlike the citronella collars, it only triggers when the dog wearing the collar, barks.

Yes it should help stop howling. Collar has probes that sit against the dogs larynx and is activated from the vibration when they bark, whine or howl.

Absolutely. The worst part of my dogs barking, was the howling. They always started out barking and then went into howling. But since the collar is triggered with both the vibration AND sound, I can't imagine it wouldn't work. Also, at least PetCo gives you 30 days to try it out. If it doesn't solve the problem you can return it.

Does this product work with long whining sessions?

My pup does some long whining at night that elevates to a bark. We know he is doing this for attention, but are trying to train him out of it. Do you think that this product will aid in that?

My 11 month old Pit bull would whine and also bark. As soon as the collar goes on him he is quiet and lays down and goes to sleep. I would totally recommend this product for the whining as well as the barking. Once the whining reaches a certain level, the correction is triggered and the whining stops. It only took my pup a couple times of getting corrected for him to figure out what causes the correction and he doesn't whine or bark now. I have only had the collar 2 weeks, I feel that at some point soon I will know longer need to put the collar on him.

The collar has to be fairly snug or it will slide around but there are plenty of holes that you should be able to get it to fit around any size neck. I have 2 other dogs and their barks DO NOT set the collar off. I had a previous shock collar that was activated by my other dogs. The SportDog collar should be fine for a 16 pound poodle. The nice thing about this collar is you can choose the mode of correction. You will understand what I mean when you read the directions.

If you go on the SportDog website they have instructional videos on how to operate the collar-short clips that are very informative. The collar senses vibrations too so if the dog was giving a low growl-something that would give the collar a vibration-then it may have given a correction stimulus. Also, make sure the collar is placed correctly on the dog and as the instructions state, do not use a collar. I use a nylon harness-nothing with any metal. That could be interfering with the collar.

There is no sound, it is a stimulation to their skin and starts out gently reminding them that when they bark they will experience discomfort. It really works.

Question

Can the SportDog Bark Collar and Invisible Fence be used together without confusing the dog?

I have 2 eleven month old dogs that love to bark at everything. They are currently on the invisible fence and I was considering a bark collar to help control the barking. Will it be effective to use the bark collar along with the invisible fence or will it be confusing to the dogs. They do well on the fence and don't challenge it at all.

PetSafe recommends that you use only 1 collar at a time. If you place a bark collar on your dog they might also think that it's the fence collar as well. It depends on how well your dog is trained on the fence system. If you have any other questions please call PetSafe Customer Care at: 1-866-738-4379.

We recommend that your dogs wear only 1 collar at a time. Since your dogs are pretty well trained on the Invisible Fence system you could try putting a bark collar on one of the dogs to curb the barking. Your dog might think that the bark collar also works with the Invisible Fence system. I recommend that you call PetSafe Customer Care at: 1-866-738-4379 if you have any other questions. You can also go to the PetSafe website: www.petsafe.net.

If you follow the instructions and only keep the collar on for the recommended amount of time or up to the max recommended per day, the charge on the lowest setting I used would last 4 to 5 days and then need to be recharged to its fullness which doesn't take that long at all. One note: I opt to use it for the max amount each day for 2 days and then started dropping it down to really only an hour after 5 days and then just leaving them off but keeping the collars on them for a few hours and eventually the barking completely changed in about 3 weeks that I didn't need the collars at all anymore. They are very intimidating at first and I know some people don't agree with this type of behavior corrections, but if used correctly and really at the lowest setting, your dog will get the idea quickly and will immediately adapt to a well like behavior. I did think it was a bit inhumane at first but like I said, I followed the instructions on the SportDog website and the 3 weeks of use I can say turned off the excessive barking that all the other small priced products couldn't do. I even bought the Bark Dog House, the remote Dog Bark Controller Clicker and nothing worked but this did. I think what really made this easy is that I was able to get to the result within 2 weeks and I felt great when I was able to just put the collar on but in the off position and they controlled their barking as if the collars where on and activated. I thought without them, they would soon go back to barking, but its been 2 years since I used them and I love my dogs more now than at first because they were out of control and I had neighbors complaining. They Bark now, but Bark when a dog should Bark. Their not Bark-Less Dogs after using the collar, just a behavioral change made the world of difference. Good Luck

I charge my dogs collar once every 3 days. I put it on him every day for about 10 hours a day. It usually takes about 4 hours to recharge so I charge it overnight. The charger has a built in shut off to keep from overcharging the collar.

I purchased my bark collar off of Petco.com and they told me that all I needed to do was go online and print up the in-store return receipt and it could be returned to any petco location. Make sure and keep your packaging until you have decided whether or not you are going to keep the collar or not, you do need the original packaging.

If they bark while playing I would recommend taking the collar off because it will trigger the correction. Not only that, they may also try and chew the collars off of one another and then you have to try and find a new collar or order one from the company.
