Family pet. My GSD is very skittish and barks constantly out of fear. She'll bark at shadows, plants, dogs, people, and any noise she thinks she hears (including wind, rain, cars, etc.). So as you can imagine, I have tried many different methods to decrease her barking with no success. Finally, after some research, I bought this collar. The reviews for it were fantastic, and I had such high hopes that I would be able to use it for a week and then she'd learn. But alas, no matter what setting the collar is on, if she wants to bark...she'll bark right through the corrections. When I had it on the automatic correction mode, it would just keep upping the level until it was maxed out and she still wouldn't stop. I will say that putting the collar on does stop some of the random nuisance barking, but she'll still bark right through the corrections if she really wants to. And if she doesn't have it on, she's right back where we started. So, I guess if your dog is as stubborn as mine, no collar will stop the barking and it's not worth the money. But if your dog is more in the normal/average range, then the rest of these reviews suggest there is still hope for you....Good Luck!
