Q: Will the collars be too big for my small 5-pound dog?
A: The BarkWise collars fit dogs that are 8 pounds or larger with neck sizes ranging from 6–24″. They are lightweight at only 2 ounces, but for a small 5-pound dog, they have proven to be too big.
That doesn't mean that we don't have a solution for you! The Dog Silencer and OnGuard do not require that your dog wear a collar, so these products work for all sizes of dogs.
The Dog Silencer® is a stationary device. Place it in the same room – or out in the backyard – wherever your dog is barking, so that it can have a direct, unblocked line of sight. When your dog barks, the unit instantly emits high-pitched sound that we can’t hear. But your dog can hear it and finds it irritating, so they'll learn stop barking to avoid the sounds.
The OnGuard™ is a handheld remote control. Think of it like a flashlight. You point it at your dog, press and hold the button for up to 10 seconds, then release. If your dog continues to bark, repeat. Check out this video to see how to use it.
