The PetSafe Basic Bark Control Collar 2019 Review | Simply Pets

Remote Dog E-Collar with 6 levels of mild shock lightweight with Beep & Safety Sensor

We all love our pet dogs. Spending time with them is so relaxing and they practically become part of the family. The only issue that might sometimes get out of hand is the incessant barking, at times, all night long. Barking is no music to the ears, especially to the neighbors. Sooner or later you’ll have to find a solution to the problem. An easy and effective solution to the barking problem is to use the PetSafe Basic Bark Control Collar. Let’s see how the bark control collar works and check out its best features.

How the PetSafe Basic Bark Control Collar Works

PetSafe has included some serious technology into this affordable and simple, yet effective device. Just fasten the adjustable collar with the device to your dog’s neck. The sensor in the PetSafe Basic Bark Control Collar detects the barking of your dog and triggers a mile static shock correction.

The collar comes with 6 levels of static correction. The response to the first bark begins at the lowest level and increases one level each time your pet barks within 30 seconds of the initial trigger. The collar stops administering the very mild static shock as soon as the dog ceases barking. The next trigger barking will again elicit a static stimulation of the lowest level. You’ll also hear a beep every time a static correction is administered.

The static correction, even at the highest level, is no more than a mild tingle. It’s effective at correcting your dog’s barking behavior and it’s absolutely harmless. Be that as it may, the makers have included necessary safety measures to prevent excessive stimulation. If your dog barks incessantly, 15 times or more, within 50 seconds, then the device will stop for 3 minutes. Inside the PetSafe Basic Bark Control Collar Kit, you’ll find a bark control unit attached to an adjustable collar, one Li-ion RFA-67 battery, and the user manual.

Reasons to Buy the PetSafe Basic Bark Control Collar

  • This dog collar is light, the dog won’t feel a thing. It’s impossible to prevent the dog from roaming, hence the collar has been made waterproof and to a large extent dustproof.
  • The PetSafe Basic Bark Control Collar is best suited for pets that weigh 8lbs or more.
  • The intelligent design used by PetSafe adjusts the correction levels to suit the dog.
  • The bark control collar comes with 6 levels of correction. The correction levels administered to the dog increases gradually.
  • The advanced sensor can discern the noise made by your dog from barking elsewhere. This feature prevents false corrections.
  • The PetSafe Basic Bark Control Collar is designed to shut off static stimulation after 50 seconds.
  • You’ll find one PetSafe RFA-67 Li-ion battery inside the package. The collar also has a battery indicator that’ll alert when the charge in the battery is low.
  • The PetSafe Basic Bark Control Collar is also available in two other options – the vibration collar and the spray collar. In the spray collar model, barking triggers the release of a substance called citronella. It’s believed that dogs find the substance unpleasant but it is harmless.
