Pro 550 Bark Feature

Postby Deuce » Wed May 03, 2017 2:14 pm

Anyone have the Pro 550 and use the bark limiter? If so, how is it?

Moving into an apartment for 2 weeks and need to keep the dogs mouth shut. Currently they're housed in the basement of our home and occasionally bark/whine. I cannot have this happen while we're in the apartment. I've been looking at the Pro 550 for a while as an upgrade from my sportdog, and if I can swing it would rather get the 550 than a stand alone bark limiter.

I have one. Haven't used it very often but when I do it stops him from barking. Not sure if it will
activate for whining. I would try and use it before you need to move into the apartment just to
get the dogs used to it and they may not bark at all at that point. They need to bark a few times
before the delimiter delivers the correction. The rest of the 550 Pro is great. I really like mine.

I tried it when I first got my 550. I stopped using it though as it was shocking the dog when she ate. Pretty soon she stopped eating and it took me quite awhile to get her eating well again.
