No. The spray is very fine and simple creates mist in the region of the nose/muzzle. The action of gentle burst of spray interrupts a dog's barking and distracts them from the focus of their bark.Close
If all of your dogs bark, an ultrasonic device can be heard by all dogs and will deter barking for all of them. If some of your dogs bark and others don’t, a collar with spray stimulation, static stimulation, or vibration stimulation will only correct the problem barkers. Remember that all dogs within range will receive an ultrasonic stimulation from the collar even if only one dog barks.Close
Yes, it is possible. The bark control collar effectively and humanely stops most barking when it is worn by a dog. It should only be worn whenever you don't want your dog to bark. Your dog's reaction to the collar in terms of their barking will depend on your usage of the collar and the temperament of your dog. A bark collar helps you communicate to your dog when it is okay to bark and when it is not. Some dogs will become trained quickly and will not need the collar long term. Other dogs associate not barking with the collar and will only control their barking when they have the collar on. For best results, use the collar when you do not want your dog to bark at all and remove it during times when barking is appropriate or wanted.Close

Only PetSafe bark control collars with our patented Perfect Bark™ dual detection technology will not be set off by another dog's bark. These collars hear and feel the bark of the dog wearing the collar so that it is only activated by the bark from the dog wearing the collar. The unit contains a microphone that hears the bark and vibration detection that feels the vocal cords when the bark is made. If the collar doesn't experience both of these sensations at the same time, the collar won't issue a stimulation. So multiple dogs can each wear bark collars and you don't have to worry about your dog getting corrected unnecessarily. Available on selected products.Close
