Proper levels of static stimulation can be described using three simple terms: “too high, too low and just right”. While electric stimulation levels in modern collars are safe at all levels, it is important to determine the “just right” level for your pet. Behaviorally-activated products are automatic; some bark collars start at the lowest level automatically and increase as your dog continues to bark until the barking stops. Trainer-operated products require you to perform a minimum recognition test to find just the right level for your pet. Start at the lowest level and watch your dog carefully for any response. Look for perked ears or a tilted head. If your pet barks/meows or reacts with fear, anxiety, or aggression, the level is too high. You don’t want your pet to be afraid, you just want to get their attention.
Both dogs are under 20 lbs. Will the Petsafe Bark Control collar fit them?

I hate the fact that the metal prongs are constantly coming undone which leaves the collar worthless - in the last year, we have purchased 4 Elite Big Dog Static Bark Collars (we only have two dogs) - once the prongs are missing, you either lose the control box or it no longer works because the probes are what causes the static. PetSafe was kind enough to send us one "free" probe kit which lasted less than a week! PetSafe Deluxe Bark Control Collar
