The Garmin BarkLimiter Deluxe Rechargeable Bark collar utilizes the latest electronic technology to immediately determine when your dog is barking and provides instantaneous bark correction, while distinguishing between other noises that may result in unwanted corrections. It corrects for obsessive or nuisance barking but allows the dog to communicate injury or bark to protect your home from an intruder without activating the device.
Auto-rise comes preset right out of the box ready for training your dog; it starts at the lowest correction level and gradually adjusts to a level to stop unwanted barking without rising further. This way you do not have to go through the task of testing levels to see what your dog needs.
You can also switch from automatic to manual settings. Built-in Bark Odometer helps determine the effectiveness of the manual correction level by counting the number of barks while you are away.
The BarkLimiter has 7 manual settings to choose from. Direct setting of a level will give the same amount of stimulation every time your dog barks, no matter the amount of times your dog barks. You can use the Bark Odometer to determine if the setting you are using is the correct one. You might have to raise the setting if the Bark Odometer is showing that your dog is barking through the setting.
When your BarkLimiter is motionless for a short period of time it drops into Sleep Mode. This will help to save the battery power when the unit is not needed. The sleep mode will even work when removing the BarkLimiter from your dog while leaving the mode or level selected without draining the battery.
The rechargeable Li-ion battery on the BarkLimiter Deluxe lasts up to 3 months on full charge. This may vary depending on what stimulation settings you use, how much your dog barks while wearing the collar, and how many hours a day your dog is wearing the collar. The Battery Strength Indicator light will tell you the condition of the battery. Green, means “good,” yellow means “charge” and red means “dead.” You will still be able to operate the collar when the yellow mode is on, but you will need to charge the unit as soon as possible. When the red mode light is on, the unit will not work at all.
The Garmin BarkLimiter has an external dial that is used to set the mode or stimulation levels for the collar. Settings include:
N – Off Position
V – Vibration Mode
A – Auto-rise
1 through 7 – Manual setting of levels (1 is the lowest stimulation level, 7 is the strongest)

With the collar on, can the dog drink water without the shock? What about chewing a bone?
Dogs can eat, drink and chew on bones without issue. If they whine, growl, howl or bark the collar will correct them but ordinary activities should be fine.
How long does one charge last?
The rechargeable Li-ion battery on the BarkLimiter Deluxe lasts up to 3 months on full charge. This may vary depending on what stimulation settings you use, how often your dog barks while wearing the collar, and how many hours a day your dog is wearing the collar.
Is the Garmin BarkLimiter Waterproof?
Will the Garmin BarkLimiter Shock the dog that has the collar on if other dogs in my kennel are barking?
The BarkLimiter Deluxe detects bark signals solely through vibrations from a dog’s throat. This virtually eliminates false corrections caused by scratching or scraping, of surfaces, or other noises like the barks of nearby dogs (as in a kennel situation). In addition, BarkLimiter Deluxe has been designed to recognize qualitative differences in barking. It corrects for obsessive or nuisance barking but allows the dog to communicate injury or bark to protect your home from an intruder without activating the device.
