Review based on initial use
February 9, 2024
This product is simple to use and is effective. I live out in the country in a valley where sound travels.This collar is for a Walker Hound with a loud bay/bark. The previous, competitor's collar was not effective and rather difficult to operate. This collar is built tough, simple to operate and effective. After one day of use the hound received the cure. Note used to be lots of deer on the property however a resident cat has been depleting the herd. The deer have moved closer to the house and kennel I suspect to avoid contact with the cat. I'm fairly certain my hound has been blowing up when he's winding the cat (no hound hunting of cougars allowed). So the neighbors up and down the valley are pleased with the results of the collar for sure. JH \
  • Easy to operate
  • Appears to be rugged much like other working e-collars I've used and for certain better built then other competitor's bark collars
  • No cons to date; time will tell.

I have a 10 month old boxer with separation anxiety that barks nonstop when we leave the house. I’ve tried everything to curb and fix the problem. Meds, training, etc. the trainer told me to work with him with an exploration which is fine but when I’m gone he starts barking 20 minutes later. I tried two other bark collars and the little nutcase barked through them. After reading reviews I decided to try this one. Hoping for the price it worked. And it does! I have it set at 6 and he’s quiet and learned quickly his barking is unacceptable. Well worth the money.
  • Works well for a crazy teenage boxer.

Feels like the real deal. But Has zero affect.
January 19, 2024
Was super excited when I felt the collar. Feels heavy duty and strong. Thought it would get the job done. Followed all steps. Collar seemed to work when testing. Had it on tight my dogs neck. Even shaved his neck for a guarantee connection. Unfortunately it has zero affect on my dog. I almost think he barks more with it on. I’ve adjusted it and tightened it and charged it. Just another empty promise bark collar. No difference from this one and a $20 Amazon one. I think the company tried to make a good product but it failed on this end. I’ll be taking my loss and trying a different one now I guess. I did reach out to customer service. They seemed to try and care. But ya send this survey out at this time I’ll give ya my honest opinion at this time. Thanks

Most effective bark collar ever
August 30, 2022
I have six bird dogs that have nuisance barked frequently and at sunrise every day. I have one of these collars for each dog and they shut them up within a day of starting to wear them. They are durable easy to use and rechargeable. I have gone through a lot of other collars before I found these. They are money well spent.
  • Easy to use. Dial setting does not change with wear. Rechargeable. Full charge lasts at least a week

I own 7 of these ys600 bark collars. They work like they should and one of the things I like about them is that you don't need to buy batteries. You simply plug it in to charge. All of my dogtra stuff uses the same charger so that makes it nice too
  • Actually works
  • Ain't none

Finally a bark collar that actually teaches your dog to not bar. Very durable and long battery life. I get about a week before I need to recharge. You never here these collars just burn a dog and yet the trailer is silent. Highly recommend . Only way to go.
  • Very durable .

February 18, 2022
I have two young coonhounds that really just want to bark at everything they see. I just cant have them barking in the pen so I ordered two of these bark collars and they have worked very well for me. I kept them on low power and watched them closely to see how they reacted. Was only a couple of days and 99% of the barking has stopped. I would highly recommend to others.

It Worked!
January 6, 2022
I have a 2 1/2 year old female cattle dog. She is what I wanted but I really need her to listen when it comes to barking at my work place. I had bought another top brand of bark collar. Throw money at the problem and it should go away, right? No. The other collar would go off and my dog would bark again and then a cycle would start where she would be really scared and freaked out and would not stop barking. I don't know what the magic is about this Dogtra YS 600, but it corrects when she barks but magically she just stops barking. In other words she shuts up! She gets her time to bark a little more freely, kind of, when we are home. I want her for her protective instinct, but she also has to listen. Otherwise she has to stay home in a crate while I'm grooming and boarding! Or take her back to the breeder of which I won't do. She's mine and I love her! :) THANK YOU DOGTRA and GUN DOG SUPPLY. You have always come through for me!
  • Effective at level 1! for a very stubborn dog!
  • Well made.
  • Price is worth it to me!
  • It is bulky for my 40lbs dog. I almost sent it back for this reason, without trying it. Thank God I did not! It is saving us!

Works great, except for stupid, psychotic dog
October 26, 2021
Collar is for "stubborn" dogs, my German Shorthair pointer is a special case. I have tried several different bark collars, each one claiming to be better than the last. I have no doubt that this collar will work on 98% of the dogs out there, and it does OK with mine, but he will continue to bark even through the highest settings when he decides to. As a result, the battery doesn't have the longevity I would have preferred and the two hour recharging time (which is needed every other day) requires that I keep another one on hand to have some resemblance of quiet during charging time. Would I buy one again, absolutely, these are great collars, although I may be further ahead to just sell the dog ...,
  • Easy to use, easy to select between stimulation levels and turn on/off. Love the control dial.
  • Battery seems to loose power fast, might have more to do with the high pain tolerance of my mutt, but was hoping for a longer time between recharge cycles.

I finally found a bark collar that will shut my dog up. I have a 70 pound Pyrenees mix that barks all the time. Well, she used to bark all the time. She is much more quiet now, thanks to this collar. The prongs actually get through her fur and down to the skin for solid contact. The compliance device has ten charged settings plus a vibrate only setting. For my dog I’ve found that the lowest settings are perfect for a little reminder, now that the lesson has been learned. The quality of the construction is good, and the instructions are simple and easy to understand. The battery recharges easily and lasts all day. This is the best bark collar I’ve had.

bark collar for 8 month old Chessie
September 17, 2021
Two reasons for bark collar purchasea; 1), Whining. The pup is somewhat hyper, perhaps anxiety induced. He does get excited. I needed a collar that would give him notice (vibration preferred) every time he whined. I could see that perhaps this would become a problem such as waiting in a duck/goose blind, etc. 2) Barking while swimming. An unusual development but he gets excited at splashing water and barks (I believe) as he is super excited and happy. Again, I preferred a vibration alert rather than a shock. To date, with the collar set on vibration only, I can definitely see progress in reduced whining and barking while swimming. I believe by using the collar set on vibration during every outing, both of these annoying habits will eventually fade away.
  • Quality product, no doubt.
  • The collar is very stiff. Some sort of plastic material which I do not like as it makes putting the collar on and off, quite difficult and especially so as the weather gets colder and the plastic collar gets stiffer.

Finally a Bark Collar That Works!
June 23, 2021
After spending 200.00 on a variety of cheaper, less effective collars and gimmicks to try to get my BMC female to stay quiet in the kennel and dog box, I was either going to have to find her a new home, or find a collar or method that really worked. There are gimmicks everywhere, and nothing worked very well with my very driven, game bred female, until now! The Dogtra YS600 is amazing! From easy charging right out of the box, to long battery life, to weight, size, ease of use, and value, this collar will work with your hardest dogs! There are 10 levels of stimulation, and I've been working my dog on level 3 with great results! This collar is the real deal and honestly saved my dog!

No more barking!
June 17, 2021
It worked! Ourl 10 month old Golden Retriever puppy demand barked at us and it drove us nuts. We tried another brand of anti-bark collar and it didn't work for us. I found this one and crossed our fingers in hopes it would help and it did immediately. Now he is quiet. Infact, he hasn't worn it in 2 days and he still won't bark at us.

Only one that works for Sadie
June 11, 2021
Sadie is our sweet 70 lbs. lab mix rescue. She has made us true dog lovers the last 7 years. She loves to protect our family, but her bark is very loud. Therefore, your bark collar has been the best to keep her barks to a minimum. No other collar that we found at the big box stores worked as well. Our neighbor found Gun Dog online and suggested us try. We've been very happy with your collar. Chris

Silences my dogs
June 9, 2021
I run a cattle ranch and have many dogs. They are all kenneled and at night we get deer and other critters roaming around. Naturally they bark to defend their territory but it was causing some sleepless nights. These collars do the job. One bark and one shock usually does the trick and it’s quiet the rest of the night. They’ve learned that when the collar is on they better be quiet. I have 6 of these collars and they’re worth every penny to ensure a good nights sleep.

A bark collar that really works!!!
May 1, 2021
I have tried multiple bark collars and this one really works. It vibrates first and at level 3 out of 10 it worked perfectly even through my Aussie's thick hair coat. I can't imagine it took me this long. The house is peaceful now!!!
  • It works amazingly!!!
  • Gives a vibration warning to allow the dog to correct their behavior before a correction.
  • More costly
  • Heavier collar

Dog Bark Collar YS 600

Well made and easy to use. Made for larger dogs.
  • Easy to use and has a number of stimulation levels. It does work. Needs to be recharged on a weekly basis. Not sure if battery replacement is easy or not.
  • Found it hard to plug the charging cord into the receiver. Not placed in an easy to reach position.

Works as Advertised, but BE FAIR to Your Dog!
March 24, 2021
Having a lot of issues with my lab being vocal at training days/hunt test. After speaking with a lot of guys I train with, it seemed like the bark collar was the way to go try and stop this behavior. After staking her out and letting her watch other dogs run while receiving collar pressure every time she vocalized, she quieted down and calmed down quite a bit. Need to repeat this operation many many more times for it to become a habit, but we are well on our way. That being said, this thing can turn very cruel very quickly. Your dog needs to understand that vocalizing is a bad behavior, and that shutting up is the way to turn the pressure off. This isn't one of those "she'll figure it out" type tools. Starting with just the vibrate and reinforcing with the "quiet" command, or even paying attention and giving your dog collar corrections before this goes on is a must. If the dog freaks out and vocalizes because of the pressure, you need to make sure you are close by to promptly remove that collar, because the dog won't stop vocalizing and the pressure won't stop coming. Overall a great tool and it has helped me a lot in working through some of my issues. Dogtra is by far the best player in the electronics game and the quality of this product doesn't fall short.

Works Well but Charge runs down quickly!
March 22, 2021
We have a very stubborn Bassett Hound. The collar does it's job as long as you place it in the right spot as instructed. Only negative is that is seems to run out of a charge quickly. If you have a small dog, this collar would be too bulky and heavy to wear. I think our neighbors are happy!
  • Does control barking!
  • Loses charge quickly.

Catahoula Leppard Dog is STUBBORN!
February 2, 2021
Louie our Catahoula Leppard Dog is a stubborn dog. We've tried bark collars my wife bought on Amazon but none of them were effective. This collar works and in few sessions his barking has been reduced 90 percent! My wife still calls Louie "Naughty Dog" cause Catahoula Leppard dog is a stubborn dog but she's happy Louie is not barking 24/7
  • Battery is rechargeable and holds a charge for a while.
  • Multiple settings
  • Very effective
  • Collar is large enough for big neck dogs but has plenty of holes so you can cut the collar down to fit smaller dogs
  • Occasionally the dog yelps
  • Kinda bulky

Works as advertised.. Was having issues with barking in create/box. Within a few days it's no longer a problem. Nice and quite, even while getting other dogs out. Loved the easy to adjust dial. Even in the current clown world we live in, when other companies shipping speeds have slowed, the Gun Dog Supply crew got it shipped ASAP.

This collar has worked wonderfully for my dog. I bought this model because it uses vibrations and not just sound (sound triggered models can shock your dog if a different dog barks). It holds a charge well and is very durable.

It works!
September 2, 2020
I was boarding a dog that was born at my kennel as a favor to his owner. Since he was a house-pet and had never been without his owners since he was 8 weeks old, he was upset. I knew that his barking was the result and he could not seem to calm down. I bought the YS600 because I have another Dogtra collar that I have been very happy with. No only did the bark collar stop the barking, it calmed the dog down and took him out of the frantic state he was in. After the initial use, all I had to do was ask him to be "Quiet" and he did! It works!
  • easy to use dial up
  • I did not like the hook on the collar as the dog was kenneled but I simply threaded the end of the collar over it to keep it from getting caught on anything.
Stop the Bark!
September 1, 2020
Our male GSP was a barker! He would bark constantly if we were moving cattle, riding 4 wheelers or letting other dogs out. I used this collar on him for a few days and the barking ceased. It ceased even to the point of him not wearing the collar and still not barking. He will occasionally bark now without the collar, but it doesn't even compare to the pre-collar days. We had a cheap bark collar but it didn't stop the barking like this one. I highly recommend this collar.

The collar works great. We have a Cane Corso and one of their characteristics is to BARK (at almost everything). This collar has helped in training our Cane Corso puppy when it is appropriate to BARK and to stop when appropriate. We would recommend this collar to anyone who has a canine that won't stop barking. Thank you

This collar has a much improved charging system (third collar we have had for her). The longer contacts pins are a big help. The stronger vibration setting stops her from barking whereas before we had to use a stronger shock setting.

The only feature I have used is the vibration mode, and it seems to work well. The dog is smart enough to realize she only gets the vibration if the collar is on, but if she barks with it off and I make a buzz noise she immediately stops.

I'm not totally happy with it. I have a small boarding kennel with some persistent barkers, and it's not always working. I recharged it last night and so far the dog hasn't barked through it. My friend ordered two and hers work better. They were the 500s. I'm going to keep working with it and hope it gets better. I maybe didn't have it turned up high enough for some dogs.
