We have two Bichons. The older one barks every time he hears a noise or someone walks by the yard, and the younger one rarely barks. Not only is the barking of the older one annoying, but I was afraid that the younger one would learn from him. I'm not a fan of shock collars, especially for small dogs, so when I saw this vibrating collar I figured I would give it a try. The first time I put it on him, he barked at my neighbor 2 or 3 times, and then turned around and sat on the porch. The next time he had it on he barked once or twice and stopped, and he continued to mill about the yard normally, just with no barking! Now he will bark if he is not wearing the collar, but all that we have to do is put the collar on and he is smart enough to know that it means not to bark. I was pleased about this too, since there are times when it's okay to bark. We didn't want a barkless dog. Bottom line - we couldn't be more pleased with this collar.
