The Tri Tronics Bark Limiter G3 is a well-thought-collar with ample opportunities.
The Tritronics is a well-accepted brand among the companies producing dog anti-bark collars. First of all these collars are distinguished by their reliability and quality, the Tri Tronics Bark Limiter G3 is not an exception. That collar exceeds my expectations its duration and the ability to define a bark.
Instead of the usual two prongs, the device has three prongs, one of them is not active. Two prongs as usual send out a static shock, the third prong (non-active) makes the collar easier to be fixed and allows sit better on dog’s neck. That design more suitable for dogs, there is almost no the pressure and the friction. Also included are extra long prongs for long-haired dogs, it shows once more the forethought of the device. But it has one disadvantage, the third prong does not have an extra prong, it introduces an imbalance. I would have liked to update the device to fix that disadvantage.
Weight and size
Apart from its predecessors, the collar is tiny and lightweight. The weight of the device is about 0.13 pounds. This weight is suitable for dogs from 10 pounds.
The collar has a built-in odometer to keep track how much time your dog barks when you are away. It helps you to monitor the effectiveness of the collar for a week, a month, a year.
A non-rechargeable battery works much longer than usual. The battery lasts for whole year and costs 10$. The total price of the collar increases imperceptibly.
Level of correction
The collar has 5 levels of correction. You may manually select needed level by pressing the button on the collar. At first sight the control of system may seem confusing, so I recommend you to learn an instruction before switch on the collar. I must admit that the collar does not use learning mode and does not have intuitive correction. Therefore you need to find out the mission of all levels. All levels are controlled by one button. You see what level has selected by led lights on the collar.
One disadvantage of the device is the lack of opportunity to test the collar in the action. You can not see the light indicator in the moment of sending out a static shock. So maybe it takes time to find out the acceptable level of correction for your dog. I would have liked to add beep, vibrate or flash a light to show the collar in the action. So first time you need to see how your dog perceive a correction and select more effective level to deter a dog from barking.
The Tri Tronics Bark Limiter G3 has a counterpart which is a dummy collar. When your dog has trained by the collar, you can use dummy collar. The dummy collar is good way to cheat and save your battery.
