It is amazing how they know when it's on them--I won't go so far as to say she's a different dog, but she gives you that look when I put the collar on, like a teen getting ready to go to the prom and then you activate the GPS tracker in the car--"C'mon, man...really?" The advantage of the training collar over the bark collar is that you have control over it, so you can use it for other "bad" behaviors--not just braking, but chewing, jumping, aggressiveness toward other dogs, etc. Plus you can use it to train her with marker flags as a boundary for your property. The bark collar does it's thing with no input from you, but it's only good for barking. If she's ruined 3 cell phones, I'd go with the training collar, you won't need to use it for long.
