For dogs that spend time alone in an apartment or back yard, the Bark Odometer™ lets dog owners know exactly how many times their dog barked while they were away. The lightweight and compact BarkLimiter series features integrated stainless steel contact points and is waterproof in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. Two versions are offered: the BarkLimiter, which features a long-lasting (up to 10 months) user-replaceable battery, and the BarkLimiter Deluxe, which features a rechargeable battery that lasts The BarkLimiter has a retail price of $79.99, and the BarkLimiter Deluxe has a retail price of $99.99. Both models will be available in stores and online in the first quarter of 2013.The Delta Series For dog owners that want both a training collar and a bark collar, the Delta Sport delivers – combining two great features into one small package. The Delta Sport is a sleek, ergonomic, and simple-to-use electronic training system for dog owners who want to teach their canine companion new commands, or refocus them away from unwanted behaviors. Functioning as a “virtual leash” up to three-quarters of a mile away, the Delta Sport gives dog owners a wide range of customizable correction settings, including tone, vibration, and 18 levels of momentary and continuous stimulation. And when not being used as a training collar, it serves double duty as a bark collar, with the same autorise feature found in the BarkLimiter Deluxe. The Delta handheld’s easy-to-read LCD display makes it simple to switch among five different training configurations. The trainer can make immediate corrections when necessary – all based on the temperament of the dog and the specific situation at hand. The Delta handheld can control up to three collars total (sold separately) and switching between different dog collars is effortless. The lightweight and compact Delta features integrated stainless steel contact points and both the collar unit and handheld are waterproof in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes – and the transmitter floats. Both the handheld and collar unit come with rechargeable batteries that last up to three months on a full charge.
For trainers who only want e-collar functions (and no BarkLimiter), Garmin offers the Delta in a basic configuration with three training configurations (instead of five) and half-mile range.The Delta has a retail price of $199.99, and the Delta Sport has a retail price of $249.99. Both models will be available in stores and online in the first quarter of 2013.
