At Good Life, we like giving our customers options. This is a great thing, but can lead to questions about what the best product would be. A common product question is about our bark control collars that come in 3 different versions: The BarkWise Complete, The Barkwise Ultrasonic, and the BarkWise Vibration.
Let’s go over the different collar features, and which one would work best for your pet!
BarkWise Complete: This is the complete package! It uses vibration, ultrasonic sound, audio sound to help train your dog. The vibration and audio are both optional and can be switched on or off. On top of having all 3 of these features it comes with a remote that allows more personalized training.
This collar is best for the most variety of situations and dogs. You can use it on a hearing impaired dog because of the vibration setting. You can use it on a dog that is scared of the vibrations and just utilize the ultrasonic sound. Also, the remote allows for other trainings. You can train your dog on boundaries, heeling, jumping up on people or furniture, etc. As long as you have the time and commitment, the remote feature really works awesome for that added one on one training!
BarkWise Ultrasonic: Just like its name, this one uses ultrasonic sound to curb barking. The difference here is that it only uses ultrasonic sound and not vibration or audible noise. I also does not come with the remote.
This is a great collar if you don’t need the extra’s the Complete has, and your dog has good hearing. They will hear the noise, similar to a dog whistle, and associate it with the barking.
BarkWise Vibration: This collar only utilizes the vibration and not ultrasonic sound or audible sound. It also does not come with a remote.
This is a perfect fit for hearing impaired dogs, whether it be from age, an injury or a birth defect. The collar will vibrate when it hears your dogs barking and interrupt.
Size and Fit: All 3 collars weigh 2.2 ounces and fit down to a 6” neck, all the way up to a 26” neck. If you are using a collar with vibration you want it to be snug against the neck without being too tight.
With all products there is a learning curve, and this will be dependent on how receptive your pet is and the situation. Dogs that are barking for aggressive or territorial reasons, as well as dogs barking from separation anxiety, will not be as responsive.
