It's compact and lightweight, due to its slim, rechargeable lithium-ion battery (up to 3 months battery life). Even with integrated stainless steel contact points — optimized to work on all dog breeds and coat thicknesses — BarkLimiter Deluxe is still one of the most compact designs on the market. And it's ready to go right out of the box — no set-up required.
The BarkLimiter Deluxe detects bark signals solely through vibrations from a dog’s throat. This virtually eliminates false corrections caused by scratching or scraping of surfaces, or other noises like the barks of nearby dogs (as in a kennel situation). In addition, BarkLimiter Deluxe has been designed to recognize qualitative differences in barking. It corrects for obsessive or nuisance barking and ignores “good” barking. This allows the dog to communicate injury or threat without activating the device.
BarkLimiter Deluxe is automatically set for Autorise right out of the box. Autorise starts at the lowest correction level and gradually adjusts to a level to stop unwanted barking without rising further. This gives you immediate relief from nuisance barking.
You can also switch from automatic to manual settings. Built-in Bark Odometer™ helps determine the effectiveness of the manual correction level by counting the number of barks while you are away.
Vibration Setting You have the option of setting BarkLimiter Deluxe to correct barks using vibration for an alternative to stimulation.
