"Complete Success"

By: Michelle

Two mutts. Owns 2 dogs. Family pet.

I bought two of these units for my dogs before I bought the Bark Limiter a couple of months ago. The Sport Dog collar kept both of them from barking for a long time, then my pitbull mix started barking again. She had figured out how to shake her head and twist is around so it wouldn't shock her. I ended up having to put it on fairly tight for it to correct her consistantly and during that time, she developed horrible pressure sores. To clarify, I didn't put it on too tight, just enough for it to work, and I never left it on more than 10-11 hours at a time. Because of the sores and the continued barking, I tried the Bark Limiter because it is smaller and has shorter prongs. The change was a complete success as it works consistantly and does not leave sores. The SportDog collar works great for my German Shephard mix and I LOVE the fact that is rechargeable. I also love the increasing intensity so they can have a couple of freebie barks (I like knowing when someone comes up the driveway) but I don't think its as affective on seriously stubborn dogs.

Product Rating: 4 out of 5-stars.
