Garmin Bark Limiter Deluxe Overview
The Garmin / Tri-Tronics BarkLimiter Deluxe Rechargeable 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 Deluxe Features:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery
The rechargeable Bark Limiter Deluxe is listed by Garmin as being able to go three months between charges. 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. The collar can remain set to the desired mode or manual setting while recharging.
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 "charge," 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.
Compact, Lightweight, and Waterproof -- weighs just over 2 oz.

Works great in the auto position. Very effective at controlling all levels of barking. The on sale price was excellent for the value and my mistake was not buying four units instead of two. My only reason for giving 4.5 stars instead of five is my personal belief that there is always room for improvement. Thank you for a great product at a great price.
I seriously love this bark collar. Every time I would get home, my dogs would bark and bark and bark, which is fine if it's someone they don't know, but they'd bark at me, Every single time. Then they'd carry on for at least 30 minutes. Finally, I have peace whenever I get home now. I have three English Springers, and they learned really fast what happens when they bark aggressively. I now leave the collars on the vibration setting because then they get a warning and they think it'll get stronger if they keep it up. Money well spent! My only issue is that I have to charge them every 5 days or so when I read somewhere that it was around a week. But really, that's not even a problem!
They work at a very low setting. Even my stubborn Barker is quite on a low setting. I prefer not to use but gotta do something during a full moon or the turkeys wonder by, lol. Definitely recommend them.
Great product from Garmin to help w/ nuisance barking. Very humane way to train my dogs when it is appropriate to bark and when it is not. The correction is graduated and after a week or so, my dogs learned the desired behavior and were no longer receiving a correction. Over a month into it now, I don't need to use the collar nearly as much as when I first started training. My current practice is to put the collar on them when additional reinforcement is needed and most of the time, I do not even turn it on and the desired behaviour is elicited. Of course this device is not a substitute for patient work with your dog, but a great tool to help with training.
The collar strap is a cheap poor imitation of the older Tri-Tronics collar straps that were excellent. Wouldn't take much more than two dog bites to put it in half. The bark collar itself works fine the strap is cheap junk.
I like that my family and I can now enjoy our dog because he's not constantly barking at what is on TV or who is walking outside. A few things I don't like about the collar is there is no on/ off switch, the battery dies very quickly and a few times it had a delayed reaction to where the shock didn't work until about a minute after excessive barking and it must have been a high number shock because my dog literally flew across the couch and yelped. Maybe the collar I received is defective?? Thanks!
Works great. I like that it a broad range of correction levels. I use it on a 1 year old, who has a problem grasping when to bark, and when quiet is required. This collar has helped him get the point. Being able to recharge it makes it even better. No more looking for special batteries.
