5 Reasons To Use The SportDOG Brand® NoBark SBC-R Collar

by SportDOG Staff

Let’s face facts, dogs bark!

For most dog owners, barking is considered a norm. However, there are a variety of circumstances and situations in which owners seek out ways to correct this behavior. Most commonly, owners look for assistance through the use of an electronic bark-control collar.

Leading the way in innovation and reliability, the SportDOG® line of NoBark collars are trusted by thousands of dog owners, as well as world renowned professional dog trainers.

Whether you’re looking to correct excessive barking in your kennel runs, or simply return some peace and quiet back to your home, here are 5 reasons why the NoBark SBC-R collar might be right for you.


By that, it means that there is no direct association with the stimulation or “stim” transmitted from the collar and the actions of the owner/trainer. Unlike using a leash or tapping the dog’s rear end with a heel stick when teaching the sit command, the bark-control collar operates without the need of owner involvement. Essentially, it provides the dogs with a choice to modify its behavior on their own. Continue barking and receive another correction, or remain quiet and no correction is given. The NoBark SBC-R is one of only a few training tools that has the ability to correct unwanted behavior on its own.

Stops Barking In Your Home

Depending on a variety of elements, some dogs bark more than others. Regardless of the circumstances, constant barking from a dog is not a desired trait. This is especially true for dogs that seem to bark at virtually anything, at any time. For these situations, the SBC-R is the perfect tool. When used correctly, the SBC-R negates this unwanted behavior in the most effective manner possible. For most owners and their neighbors, dogs that constantly bark are considered a nuisance. By using the SBC-R, you are able to maintain silence in your home … your family and neighbors will thank you.

Great For Multiple Dog Owners

This is especially true for professional trainers who interact with multiple dogs at the same time, or hunters with more than one dog in their kennel run. SBC-R can help maintain a sense of calmness over the pack. When transitioning between dogs during drills, trainers agree that the SBC-R keeps dogs composed and relaxed, meaning they are less likely to over exert themselves or disrupt the teaching process for others. The same can hold true for the standard household with 2 or more dogs. In most cases, there always seems to be one dog whose mission is to rile up the rest by barking as much as possible. By using the SBC-R in these circumstances, owners are able to prevent the instigator from having an adverse reaction on the other dogs. This simple feat can go a long way in helping to maintain a positive atmosphere in the home or kennel, while also enhancing the dog’s ability to repeat acceptable behavior in the future.

Helps Dogs Associate With Surroundings

Dog trainers agree that the NoBark SBC-R can help promote positive results in everything from crate training to housing multiple dogs under one roof. Whatever the situation, proper use of the SBC-R enables dogs to become accurately adjusted to their environment. A constantly barking dog is an agitated dog. Once agitated, the dog’s ability to focus and to learn new commands is severely limited. By promoting harmony with its surroundings, the owner is able to keep their dog happy, engaged, and in the right state of mind.
