PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear about the problems you have encountered with your PetSafe Elite Big Dog Spray Bark Control Collar!
If each of these items check out and you are still having an issue, check the fit of the collar on your dog. The collar should fit your dog snuggly and should be high on your pet's neck near the ears and centered under your dogs throat. You may need to tighten the collar to ensure that it is close enough to sense your dog's bark. If you feel that the fit of the collar is good, you've tried the steps above and the spray bark still does not spray, there may be a more complex issue with your collar.
PetSafe bark collars with our patented Perfect Bark dual detection technology will not be set off by another dog's bark. The collar "hears" and "feels" the bark of the dog wearing the collar so that it is only activated by the bark from the dog wearing the collar. The unit contains a microphone that hears the bark and vibration detection that feels the vocal cords when the bark is made. If the collar doesn't experience both of these sensations at the same time, the collar won't issue a correction. So multiple dogs can each wear bark collars and you, as a pet owner, don't have to worry about your dogs getting corrected unnecessarily.

Petsafe listened to my story and after explaining the problem with the 2 small nuts on the back becoming loose, they replaced the unit. I now check the nuts frequently and when I walk my dog I take the collar off. He doesn't bark at others and doesn't need correction while on leash anyway.We purchased this product from Petsmart. Having to find a training device for our Dachshund.. After trying 2 ultrasonic device that did not work we finally relented to the shock collar. With the help of a associate we were specific about a device for a small dog. On the advice from the associate we were convinced that it was more of a static shock like you would receive from the carpet ... I tried to see how the shock would feel but could not get a reaction until 2 weeks later..Yes it works but finally able to get a response from my barking I was shocked at how much stimulation I received. I am just disappointed that I cannot lower the stimulation with this Bark control like others. I figured because it was especially made for little dogs it would not be just one stimulation feature. Mike tells the story of his dog Diego, a canine cancer survivor, and how his endless barking at squirrels created a tense situation with the neighbors, until Mike got a PetSafe bark collar.
