How does it work?

The SportDOG® NoBark 10R Rechargeable Bark Control effectively and humanely stops barking. The collar detects your dog’s barking and gives a static stimulation, reminding him to stop barking. Most dogs quickly learn to stop barking when wearing the collar. The SportDOG® NoBark 10R Rechargeable Bark Control uses several features designed to shorten the training phase and promote good behaviour:

  • A patented sensor system provides the most reliable bark detection available. The unit delivers a static stimuation via the contact points only if it detects BOTH vibration from the vocal cords AND the sound of the bark.
  • Three user-selectable modes allow you to choose how static stimulations are delivered:
  1. The Temperament Learning (indicated by green light, see mode chart for example on page 7) mode tracks the number of static stimulations needed to substantially reduce (and in most cases eliminate) the number of nuisance barks. The system provides 10 levels of static stimulation. It begins with a low-level stimulation (Level 0). However, if excessive barking continues, the stimulation intensity will increase with each successive bark until the barking stops. This stimulation level becomes the starting level the next time the dog barks. Once the dog has learned to reduce the barking, the initial warning stimulation is reduced.
  2. In Progressive Stimulation mode (indicated by blue/green light, see mode chart for example on page 7), the stimulation starts at the lowest level and progresses to the next level (to a maximum of Level 9) each time your dog barks within 30 seconds of the previous bark. If your dog does not bark again within 30 seconds, the stimulation will be reset to the lowest level (Level 0).
  3. In the User-Selected Stimulation mode (indicated by blue light, see mode chart for example on page 7), the user presets the stimulation level (0-9) that will be used every time the dog barks.

Note: As a built-in safety feature, if your dog barks 15 times or more within a 80 second period, the NoBark 10R Rechargeable Bark Control will automatically shut off for 3 minutes. This safety feature is active in all three modes of operation.
