Bark collar opinion

What's the best bark collar on the market, too keep a dog quite in the kennel?


Posted by Sgraves on 05-16-2019 03:47 AM:

Me Rick , garmin has a good one. Glad you brought this topic up. Had a young dog that would kennel bark an I put one on him an it worked . But , when it was time to go hunting he got to where he wouldnít open his mouth when I put a track collar on him. Probably should have let him wear a dummy collar for a while. What am bout to say some of you might not agree. I took a BB gun an started bouncing bbís off the top of kennel an now I have no problem. Didnít make him gun shy an he doesnít bark anymore. I just donít like the bark collar.

The garmin one works well on my pup

she instantly goes silent when I put it on her. I wish the battery lasted longer. Doesnít seem to last more than a day, and it rarely has to shock my dog, so I would think it should hold up better than that since it basically doesnít do anything. Itís light blinks when you turn it off to show how many times it had to shock the dog during the last use, so I know it rarely shocks. Also, occasionally she acts like she gets shocked while eating when she has it on, but not always. That could be operator error on my end.

Had a friend that had a one eyed dog because of a BB gun.

I have several different bark collars that have lasted over a year with constant use...they last about a week or two on a 2 hour charge...the drawback is false correction now and then...

This one could be best in market...

2 hour charge and lasts 3 to 4 weeks between charges with the least amount of false corrections...
Sportdog SBCR NO BARK...$99.00

Dogtra YS600

I have multiple Garmin Bark Limiter Deluxe collars and as far as I am concerned they are junk compared to the Dogtra. The Dogtra battery lasts longer and I have yet to have any false corrections with them. After a few weeks I had to stop using 3 of the 6 Garmins because they would correct for nothing. Even shocked me one day taking it back to the kennels.

I have had 3 of the YS600 collars for 2-3 months now with no issues and only charged them twice. Probably will never buy another Garmin Bark Limiter again.

I had luck with sport dog. Have not used garmin or dogtra so cannot comment on them.

I can open my front door an dogs will run in box. BB gun works.

Put a dishwasher or washing machine solenoid valve on your dog pen. Connect it to a water supply and run an extension cord through your window. When a dog barks, plug it in. No aiming, no blind dogs, you don't even have to open the door or look. It's a little bit of work, but it's the best thing I ever used. After a few days, you can't even wet a dog. When the solenoid clicks they're in the dog house.

I learned long ago when you have 2 young dogs in same pen dont put bark collar on 1 of them. The other will have it chewed off in about 2 days.

Same thing happens with ordinary collars...I use 1/4 inch stainless chain and cut it with an extra 3 links...I then use a quick link and use this combination as puppy collars...as the puppies grow I can reset the chain collar to the next link...once I know which will be keepers I buy them a regular collar each...

Makes life a little easier...

Never had it happen with regular collars but most time just have 1 pup and it runs loose until ready to start then goes on chain.

Dogtra

I have bought about every kind of bark collar on the market until I got a Dogtra the Tri tronics was the best but only about a year use-- I have 3 Dogtra's and will say they are the top of the heap.
I still have a couple of Dogtra ys-500 they work just like new.

I have a couple garmins. Junk. They get the job done but I won't buy another. Shock the dog to much for not much of anything.


Posted by POTOMAC on 05-17-2019 07:13 PM:

I have 6 garmin collars I will sell all work all new collars


Posted by JR4661 on 05-17-2019 07:17 PM:

You don't like them either Potomac?


Posted by hat creek mac on 05-17-2019 07:52 PM:

My biggest complaint with all the ones I have tried are that none of them lasted for very long.

I tried one from DT systems made in Texas and have used them ever since. The one I use is powered by the little 9 volt battery with the snap attachment. They make a rechargeable model as well now. Built to last!

I have not tried the Dogtra, but I bought several of the Tri Tronics. Those things were junk.

The new Garmin Barklimiter 2 seems to be a good one as well. It has rubber contacts so it wonít rub a dogs next raw and has a 30 day charge life. My dad is using one and likes it way better than the Barklimiter Deluxe, also have a friend that has 3 of them and he swears by them.

I checked my bark Collar purchasing a few years back... I didn't realize it but I own 2 sportdog collars and one doesnít work and the other is barely hanging on...two years of heavy use is not bad...a drawback is they need recharging about every 8-10 days...

I also have 2 Garmin Bark Limiters...same age and same use and they are in good condition...another plus is that
The limiter holds a charge at least 3 or 4 times longer...
The drawback on my original limiters is that they sometimes correct from other noises...I believe that problem has been solved...the supplier says if that is a problem send them back for replacement...I bought one a couple days ago and it is working nicely...

I will be buying a few more as needed...
I am not saying they are the best on account I havenít tried them all...but I do know they are great for the money...
