    Default Best and Most Reliable Bark Collar

    I have 2 females in heat and 3 males that are driving my wife and I crazy. Any recommendation on Bark Collars? I want the best and most reliable. I have had 3 and my dad has had 2 tritronic bark limiters and all of them have done the same thing. Eventually you can't get the on off button to work. I have talked to Tritonics 2 times and they say send them the collars with $79 each and they will send me a new one. Why would I want to pay again for equipment that should last longer than 6 months when they hadn't fixed the issue? Any suggestions?

    I have 3 of the Tri Tronics Bark Limiters. Never had a problem w/them. I also do not manually turn them off. When not in use , they are hanging and not really draining the batteries. They supposedly go into sleep mode without movement.

    I like the Dogtra Yapper Stopper.... I buy the YS-300 even for my labs. It gives a warning vibration to let the little barking cherub know that if they don't be quiet, they are going to get it.

    Same problems with the TT. I bought a Dogtra YS-500. Feels very rugged and substantial compared to the TT. If I had it to do again, I would probably get the YS-300 like JusticeDog mentioned.

    The problem with your TT sounds like your battery is dead. Have you replaced the battery?

    They call the Dogtra the "Yapper STOPPER"...not the "Bark LIMITER"......Buy the YS 500...you wont be sorry.
