Steve Says:

What's new in the Garmin Bark Limiter?

Autorise Stimulation -- Garmin has added a setting to the BarkLimiter that allows the unit to automatically increase stimulation levels as your dog barks to find the correct level. Unlike direct set stimulation levels, the Autorise feature uses 18 levels of stimulation. This allows the unit to ramp up very quickly to stop rapid barking and to get to the right level fast.

The advantage of an autorise feature is that the unit can deal with high distraction situations that need higher levels and then after the barking is over the level will drop. The next time a lower distraction situation comes up, the unit starts low so that your dog isn't over corrected. I have had great success with this type of feature in other brands of bark collars and I am glad to see it in the Bark Limiter.

The majority of my dogs work fine in an autorise mode but I have a few that don't. Some dogs are just really driven to bark and they require a high correction level the first time they bark and everytime after that. These dogs will not do well on an autorise bark collar and will require a high direct set level.

The downside of autorise is that you are going to have some barking. This mode might not be what your particular barking issue needs and you might be better off with a direct set level.

Vibration Settings -- In Vibration mode, instead of correcting the dog with static stimulation when he barks, the collar will vibrate. There is no electric stimulation at all. It is not a warning or a precursor to stimulation, it is only vibration.

I can't say it won't stop a dog from barking but I'll be real surprised if it does, especially over time. Some dogs may find vibration to be startling at first, but once your dog figures out that there is no downside to it, you will need to move to a mode that has a stimulation correction.

Keep in mind that if you have used vibration on a remote training collar to communicate with your dog you will be making a mistake to try and use vibration with your bark collar.

Coin Slot Dial -- This is a very simple way to operate the collar and it's easy to tell what level you are on. The down side is that you do not want a dial that is easy to turn. If it's easy to turn then there is a chance that the level could get changed while the collar is on the dog.

Garmin has made this dial stiff. This makes it hard to turn by hand but there is little chance it will change levels by accident. To make it easier to use, there is a "coin slot" in the dial that lets you use a penny, dime or quarter to turn the dial. You can also use a flat head screw driver or any other flat tool.

I am not a big fan of external dials. We have several products that use them and I don't like them. There are a couple of things about the Bark Limiter that make the dial an improvement over a button, but I'm still not a fan. When we have trouble with older versions of the Bark Limiter, the majority of the time it was an on/off button issue. Every time you changed anything on the old Bark Limiter you used the on/off button. Once it failed you were done. The dial should fix that. Also, changing levels on the old Bark Limiter was a pain. You had to scroll through all 5 levels to lower the stimulation. It was hard to explain and it took time. The dial fixes that.

Updated Bark Odometer -- Garmin has made a needed change to the "Bark Odometer" on this version. Instead of flashing green once for every time the dog is corrected, you get red flashes for every 10 correction and then green flashes for the ones. For example, if you get 2 red flashes and 5 green flashes, your dog was corrected 25 times. (You may need to turn that level up!)

Integrated Contact Points -- The Bark Limiter no longer comes with short and long contact points. The new integrated contact points are designed to work with long and short haired coats. This is a new trend in bark collars and we have not seen many issues with not being able to get good skin contact, but some dogs will require longer probes. If that is the case with your dog, you will need to try another brand.


Differences Between Bark Limiter Units

The Garmin Bark Limiter now comes in two versions: A standard version that is simply called the "Bark Limiter" and a deluxe version called the "Bark Limiter Deluxe."

All the settings and features are identical on both units except for these 3 things:

1) The standard version uses a non rechargeable user replaceable 3 volt battery. The Bark Limiter Deluxe uses a rechargeable battery.

2) The Deluxe is slightly smaller than the standard version.

3) The Standard version is $79.99 while the Deluxe is $99.99.

In the past I was not a big fan of rechargeable bark collars. My take on them has changed as battery technology has improved. We get pretty good results out of rechargeable collars now. The price of replacement batteries will make up the $20 price difference pretty quick!


"Good Barks"

If you look around at other sites on the internet that also sell the Garmin Bark Limiter, you will find text that talks about this unit being able to "recognize qualitative differences in barking." These websites claim that the Bark Limiter can tell the difference between "obsessive or nuisance barking" and ignore "good" barking. This is not true. Garmin originally intended to make this concept part of the design of the new Bark Limiter but were unable to do so.

While this is a feature that many folks would love to have in a bark collar, the Bark Limiter can't do this. The reason these websites claim that the product will do this is because Garmin accidentally included this text on its website and several distributors sent the info out to their dealers. The Bark Limiter can not tell the difference between "good" barking and "bad" barking. Anyone that tells you it can does not know what they are talking about.

What the Bark Limiter does do is differentiate between barking and other vocalizations. This is pretty typical in bark collars today. We find that many sounds that a dog makes will not be seen as "barks" by the unit. This is a good thing, but sometimes we have dogs that learn how to make sounds that the unit will not correct.

Transcript from Steve's Video:

Today we're going to take a look at the Garmin Bark Limiter products. These are bark collars made by Garmin based off of the Tri-Tronics design that we've had the last 10 or 12 years.

There are two versions of the bark limiter. You have the rechargeable which is just a little bit smaller and then you have the battery operated which is just a little bit bigger. That's the only difference between these two products—rechargeable, battery operated.

There's an up and a downside to that. It really just depends on what you want. Rechargeable technology nowadays is pretty good. You are not going to have to charge this really that often. Once a week would be plenty for most folks. You may be able to get away with even going out longer than that. It really depends on how much your dog barks.

10 years ago I hated rechargeable bark collars because they had so much downtime. You had to charge them every day. You'd have these situations where you needed your bark collar but it was out of battery. Nowadays it's just not that common. The technology is really good.

So, not a lot to worry about there. There's a price difference between the two of them, about $20. So that's something to keep in mind.

The size difference is not that great either. It's just not that much bigger. On a little bitty dog it may make a difference. But for most dogs it's not going to matter. So it really just depends.

The dial has N, which is a neutral position. It cuts the collar off. Then you have V, which V is a vibration only mode. When the dog bark it gives a vibration. There is no electrical stimulation involved whatsoever. It's strictly vibration when he barks. The A is a rising stimulation. The way this bark collar works, when the dog barks it gives a correction at the lowest level. When he barks again it gives another correction. If he continues to bark, the stimulation increases until you get to a level where the dog stops barking.

I like rising stimulation in bark collars. It allows the dog to figure out which level is going to work for him. So I'm a big fan of it. Some people don't care for it because a dog that can take a lot of stimulation is going to be able to bark several times before it reaches that level. So a lot of it depends on your situation.

My dogs wear bark collars not so much because of my neighbors, because I live out in the country. They wear bark collars because of me. I don't want to listen to them. So when they are wearing a bark collar, they get a bark or two in. something comes up and they choose to bark once or twice. It's not really that big of a deal to me. I just don't want them to bark constantly. So most of my dogs work in a rising stimulation.

Then you've got direct set levels, which this unit has 1-7. Some dogs just don't work well in a rising stimulation mode and you want to be able to give them an exact level based on what they need. So you've got seven different levels to choose from.

Now, a dial on the outside of the collar can be a problem if it's a free spinning dial. So what Garmin has done is they've made it where you need something to turn the dial. A penny works really good. You can use a screwdriver, anything like that. You can turn it by hand, but it's not easy. And so, they've got a little key slot there. You just take your penny and you set it.

What's nice about this particular collar is that once you figure out what level you want to use, you can actually leave it there the majority of the time.

A couple of features that this collar has, it has a sleep mode. So if your collar is on and it's on the dog, you take it off and you leave it on Level 4 and you set it down, after a short period of time, once it's motionless the collar is going to power down. What that does is conserves battery life. The idea behind it is if your dog is curled up and he's asleep, he's not going to need the bark mode, so it powers down to save battery life.

Well, the same thing is true when you take it off the dog. So if you figure out the level that you want, you set it on that level and you can leave it there pretty much all the time.

If you do that, though, you miss out on one of the features. Garmin has what's called a bark odometer. The system will record the number of times the dog is corrected. And so, if you set it on a 4 and now you want to see how many times your dog barked while you were gone, take it off the dog, turn it back to N. Before it shuts down it's going to blink at you and tell you how many times the dog was corrected.

So if you turn it off and you get no blinks or one or two, then you go, "OK. Good. The 4 is working." If you get 30 then you know your dog has been barking the entire time you were gone. We need to increase the stimulation level.

So it's a pretty neat feature. It's called the bark odometer. Both collars have them.

My dog had developed a very bad habit of being noisy in the car when we going out to exercise or hunt. He is shock collar trained, but I couldn't control his barking and noise with a regular e- collar. The Bark collar cured the problem in one day. After trying it on vibrate (didn't solve the problem) I put it on him on 'Auto'. Although somewhat harsh, it solved the problem (I probably should have set it at a fixed level to start). I put it on him now, set it at the lowest level, and he is very calm in the car. He's a much more pleasant dog to travel with and it's much safer.

So far these collars have done a great job of mitigating the barking. One of my AC dogs has recently gone almost completely blind, so his hearing is taking over and has increased his nuisance barking as he adjusts. He's a younger dog, so this has been tough. At first I had it set too high, and both dogs really yelped the first few minutes, so I set it low and then gradually got to a level that worked, but didn't hurt them. I think about level 4 or so. I'm going to get one for my Jack Russell next, and she will be the true test.

This replacement bark collar for the old style is easy to use, but the downside is that you have to have a coin to turn it on and off. The collar is slick, and you have to make sure the collar is snug around the dog's neck, or it slides up toward the back of the neck. It is a nuisance. The old style was great where you push a button to turn it off and on.

Garmin Bark Limiter Overview

The Garmin / Tri-Tronics BarkLimiter Bark Collar is able to distinguish between barking and other vocalizations by using innovative "Advanced Bark Correction Technology" powered by micro electro-mechanical acceleration sensors. It delivers consistent and instantaneous correction, virtually eliminating false corrections caused by external noises.

You can either choose the convenient Autorise setting that automatically programs the stimulation intensity level based on the barking behavior of each individual dog, or choose manual or vibration options for alternative modes of correction. This lightweight, compact no-bark collar is the perfect training tool for any dog with a nuisance barking problem. It works right out of the box with no additional set-up required!

Garmin Bark Limiter Features:

Autorise Stimulation

    Autorise Stimulation mode automatically increases the stimulation to the correct level as your dog barks. It will also increase levels if a high distraction situation causes your dog to bark excessively. This way you do not have to go through the task of testing levels to see what your dog needs.

    How Autorise works: The Autorise feature starts at level 1 when the unit is turned on. When your dog barks he will get a correction on level 1. If he barks again he will get a second correction on level 1. If he barks a third time, the unit will increase stimulation by two levels. If your dog continues to bark he will get two corrections at the new level before the collar increases two more levels. Once the collar reaches the needed level to get the dog to stop barking, it will slowly lower the stimulation by one level at a time. If your dog barks again while the unit is at the lower level, the unit will start at that level and then increase again as needed. Over time, the unit will return to level 1 once your dog has stopped barking for an extended period of time.

Vibration Mode

    The Bark Limiter has a vibration setting on the dial. Instead of correcting your dog with static stimulation when he barks, the collar will vibrate.

Direct Stimulation Level Settings

    The Bark Limiter has 7 levels of direct set stimulation levels used to correct barking. Direct set levels give the same amount of stimulation every time your dog barks no matter how many times he barks. To use direct set levels effectively, you need to test your dog over time and get a feeling for the level that he needs in most situations. The Bark Odometer can be very helpful when getting a feel for what level your dog will require when you are not around to watch him.

Bark Odometer

    The Bark Odometer counts the number of times your dog is corrected while wearing the collar, and counts them back to you when you turn the unit off. This way you know if the level that you have set for your dog is working for him while you are away. If you have no corrections or just a few, then your level is set high enough. If you have several corrections then you need to rethink the stimulation level that you are using. To activate the Odometer, set the dial to "N" which turns the unit off. The Odometer will then flash the number of corrections since the last time the unit was turned on.

Sleep Mode

    When your Bark Limiter is motionless for a short period of time it drops into Sleep Mode. This is designed to save battery power when the unit is not needed. The Bark Limiter can go into Sleep Mode when it is removed from your dog or while your dog is motionless. Sleep Mode allows you to leave your Bark Limiter dial set to the mode or level you need to control your dog's barking, even when the collar is not in use, without draining the battery.

Replaceable CR2 Lithium Battery

    The Bark Limiter is listed by Garmin as being able to go up to 10 months before replacing the battery. This will vary depending on what stimulation settings you use, how much your dog barks while wearing the collar, and how many hours a day your dog wears the collar.

Battery Strength Indicator

    When you first turn the dial on the Bark Limiter from "N" to a level or setting, the light on the collar will glow for 5 seconds. The color of the light will tell you the condition of the battery. Green means "good," yellow means "replace," and red means "dead." The unit will work in yellow mode but immediate attention is recommended. The unit will not work at all when the light is red.

Coin Slot Dial

    The Bark Limiter has an external dial that is used to set the mode or stimulation level for the collar. Settings include:

    N -- Off Position
    V -- Vibration Mode
    A -- Autorise
    1-7 -- Direct Set Levels (1 is the lowest stimulation level, 7 is the strongest)

Integrated Contact Points

    Engineered to fit all dog breeds and all coat thicknesses.
