'Perfect Bark Detection' picks up on vibration and sound to ensure only your dog's barking is detected as it's not being corrected falsely. As he barks, he receives a safe but effective static correction.
A Temperament Learning System automatically adjusts intensity through ten levels of correction, depending on the frequency of barking. It begins with low level corrections, but if excessive barking continues, the correction intensity will increase. When used correctly, the bark collar reduces (and often eliminates) the amount of nuisance barking. Your dog will quickly learn to associate his barking with the unwanted stimulation and stop the behavior. This soft, weatherproof, Comfort-Fit collar boasts all the features of our larger, deluxe bark control collar, but it is sized down to fit even the smallest dog.
-For dogs up to 55 pounds
-10 levels of Light-Touch static correction
-Durable, waterproof receiver collar
-Collar uses rechargeable, PetSafe RFA-188 battery (included)
-Display indicated correction level and battery life
-Perfect Bark sound & vibration sensors - only your dog's bark causes correction
I have a smaller dog Italian Greyhound / Sheltie mix with a very thin neck. Big dog bark collars were too bulky on her neck, and I would have had to burn or cut new holes in them to fit her. So, the nice folks at LCS helped me to select the Little Dog Bark Control collar. This is a good idea for a smaller dog. Only thing to watch is the collar adjustment. I think it would work better if the collar was a bit wider but not huge and stayed adjusted a little better. The price is a bit high. BUT, considering the options, this is still one of the best bark control devices out there, for the smaller dog.
