I'm interested in the ultrasonic and vibe bark collar but I have a very large dog. I'm concerned firstly that it won't be strong enough and secondly about the collar sizing. Dog is 150 lb Presa Canario, very wide neck.
A: BarkWise collars are one size fits most. Dogs that are 8 lbs or larger with neck sizes 6–24″ wear the collar comfortably. Your dog can use their own collar if you want to make sure it has a good fit or your dog has a preference. Small dogs, such as those that are 5 lbs, tend to find the collar a wee bit too big, though.
Breed and size don't make the determination. The ultrasonic sound and vibration used by our BarkWise collars tend to get most dogs' attention. Hearing impaired dogs will not see success with the sound, but vibration works perfectly well.
Usually, it can come down more to the “why”. Why is your dog barking? Some barking, such as aggressive, anxiety, protective or territorial, may need other training tools or methods to see results. We can help you find the product or steer you in the right direction for training that works.

Working Like a Dog – Service Dogs
This Labor Day we wanted to focus the spotlight on service dogs, as well as to offer a better understanding of the law and how we as a community can protect the rights of these dogs and their handlers. Service dogs not only provide companionship to those who have disabilities, they also give them a better quality of life, allowing more independence and control over their own lives. These highly-trained dogs start their training in puppy hood. They then work tirelessly everyday to make sure that their person is safe, taken care of, and is provided with immediate attention in...
