By: Gina From MOminiature schnauzers
. Owns 5 dogs. Family pet. I purchased two of these collars at the same time. I have two little schnauzers that are barkers. It has worked 100% on one of them to eradicate barking, while the dog is WEARING the collar. I can put the collar on her and even with it turned off, she will not bark. It only had to shock her twice for her to never bark again when wearing the collar. When collar is off, she still barks. The other little schnauzer has it set on a 6 and it shocks her every time she barks. It has reduced her barking by about 50%. Sometimes she chooses to bark even tho you can tell she is being shocked. My dogs wear the collars only when they go outside or if I am leaving the house. The instructions tell you the dog should not wear the collar more than about 12 hrs a day. They are set up to charge very easily. I would guess they hold a charge for about a month and recharge fairly quickly. I had had other bark collars before and every time I turned around I was having to buy more expensive batteries for them. These collars have been well worth it to me and I think my neighbors probably appreciate the fact that I bought two of them. The LED light is also good. One night the collar fell off my dog and i was able to find it by walking thru the dark and seeing the LED light blinking on it. When these collars bite the dust, I will get more of them. I think they are even cheaper now than when I got mine. Well worth the money to keep the neighbors happy.
