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 it works for any dogs – no matter how small!
The Dog Silencer® is a stationary device. Place it in the same room – or out in the backyard – wherever your dog is barking that it can have a direct, unblocked line of sight. When your dog barks, it instantly emits high-pitched sound that we can’t hear. Your dog can and finds it irritating, so should learn that doesn't have to hear it if stops the barking.
The OnGuard™ is a handheld remote control. Think of it like a flashlight. You point at your dog, press and hold the button for 10 seconds, then release. If your dog continues to bark, repeat. Check out this video to see how to use it.
Pro Tip: Direct Line of SightThis means, you’ll need to make sure there are no obstructions between the device and the yard/dog in question.
