• When possible reposition the collar on the pet’s neck every 1 to 2 hours.
• Check the fit to prevent excessive pressure; follow the instructions in this manual.
• Never connect a lead to the electronic collar; it will cause excessive pressure on the contact points.
• When using a separate collar for a leash, don’t put pressure on the electronic collar.
• Wash the dog’s neck area and the contacts of the collar weekly with a damp cloth.
• Examine the contact area daily for signs of a rash or a sore.
• If a rash or sore is found, discontinue use of the collar until the skin has healed.

How it Works
The PetSafe® Rechargeable Bark Collar uses several features designed to shorten the training phase and
promote good behavior.
First, the bark collar has a unique sensor that provides the most reliable bark detection available. It also
uses temperament learning to decrease and, in most cases, eliminate nuisance barking.
The system has 15 levels of static correction. It begins with low-level corrections. If excessive barking
continues, the correction intensity will increase with each successive bark until the barking stops. Once
the dog has learned to reduce the barking, the initial warning corrections are reduced. As a built-in
safety feature, if your dog barks 15 times or more within a 1 minute 20 second period, the bark collar will
automatically shut off for 3 minutes.
Lite
PetSafe® Lite Bark Collars are designed specifically for dogs with a sensitive or timid personality. The
stimulation levels are very gentle even when increasing to higher levels. Lite bark collars can be used with
dogs of all sizes, but they are particularly well suited for small to medium-sized dogs.
Charge the Collar
Excessive charging can shorten battery life. Only charge the collar when you see the low battery light.
1. Lift the cover protecting the charging port and connect the charger.
2. Plug the charger into a standard wall outlet. The green LED will appear.
3. Recharges take no more than 5 hours. Although your bark collar should be partially charged, you’ll want
to fully charge it before using it for the first time. The green LED will turn off after charging is complete.
4. When the bark collar is charged, replace the rubber cover.
Charging Port
To Turn the Collar On
Press and hold the power button until you hear a low to high beep and
the green LED appears, and then release. The green LED will flash once
every 5 seconds.
To Turn the Collar Off
Press and hold the power button until the bark collar beeps high to low,
and then release. The red LED will be illuminated during the button press
and will turn off when the bark collar turns off.

Power/LED
Quick Tip: When not using the collar, turn it off to extend battery life.
LED Function
The two color LED indicates the battery level. When the battery is low, the red LED will blink 3 times every 5
seconds. When it is fully discharged, no LED will flash. When the collar is charged, the green LED will flash
once every 5 seconds.
Fit the Collar
Important: The proper fit and placement of the bark collar is important for
effective operation. The contact points must have direct contact with your
dog’s skin on the underside of his neck.
1. Make sure that the collar is turned off.
2. Start with your dog standing comfortably (A).
3. Place the collar on your pet so that the PetSafe® logo
B
is right side up and the collar is directly under your
dog’s chin. Center the contact points underneath your
dog’s neck, touching the skin (B). NOTE: It is sometimes
necessary to trim the hair around the contact points to
make sure that contact is consistent. However, you should
never shave your pet’s neck as this may increase risk of
skin irritation.
4. Check the tightness of the collar by inserting one finger between the end of a
contact point and your dog’s neck (C). The fit should be snug but not constricting.
5. Allow your dog to wear the collar for several minutes, and then recheck the fit.
Check the fit again as your dog becomes more comfortable with the collar.
A
C
Do not shave the pet’s neck as this may increase the risk of skin irritation. The collar should
not be worn for more than 12 hours out of every 24-hour period. Leaving the collar on
too long could lead to skin irritation.
Temperament Learning
Temperament Learning tracks the number of corrections needed to substantially reduce (and in most cases)
eliminate the number of nuisance barks. The collar starts at the lowest correction level and increases
the intensity with each successive bark until the barking stops. This correction level becomes the starting
level the next time the dog barks. Once your dog has learned to reduce this barking, the initial warning
corrections are automatically reduced.
NOTE: As a built-in safety feature, if your dog barks 15 times or more within an 80 second period, the bark
collar will automatically shut off for 3 minutes.

Power the collar on. Wait 5-10 seconds or until the first green LED flash.
Press and hold the on/off button.
Continue holding through the red LED and power off tone.
The green LED will flash 5 times to confirm the correction level has been reset to level 1.
Release the on/off button. The bark collar will now be powered off.
Test the Collar
1. Plug the bark collar into the charger.
2. While the charger is plugged in, press and hold the on/off button.
3. Continue to hold the on/off button while unplugging the bark collar from the charger. A blue LED will
appear and the red and green LED’s will turn off.
4. Release the on/off button. After a 2 second delay, the following will begin: The bark collar will tone
(beep) 15 times, once for each level of correction. Then, it will sound the normal power off tone and
turn itself off.
5. The test can be stopped at any time by pressing the on/off button.
What to Expect During Use
Important: Do not leave your dog alone the first few times he receives a correction.
Place the collar properly on your dog and wait nearby until he barks. Most dogs will understand very quickly
that the collar is disrupting their urge to bark and will relax and stop barking. Because the static correction may
be surprising or startling at first, some dogs may bark more at the initial correction.
On rare occasions, a dog may begin barking at the correction. If this happens, reassure your dog with a
calm voice. As your dog relaxes, he will understand that if he becomes quiet, he will not receive any more
static corrections. The number of dogs that have this reaction typically will only have it the first time they
wear the bark collar.
You should notice a reduction in your dog’s barking within the first couple of days that he wears the bark
collar. At this point, it is important to remember the learning process is still not complete. Dogs will “test” this
new learning experience and may increase their attempts to bark. This usually occurs during the second
week a dog wears the bark collar. If this does occur, remain consistent and do not alter your use of the bark
collar. You must place the bark collar on your dog in every situation when you expect him to be quiet. If your
dog is not wearing the bark collar, he may resume barking and his learning will suffer a setback.
