How does it work?
The SportDOG® NoBark 18 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 18 Bark Control uses a sensor system to provide the most reliable bark detection available. The unit delivers a static stimulation via the contact points only if it detects BOTH vibration from the vocal cords AND the sound of the bark. External noise or another dog’s bark will not trigger a static stimulation. The SportDOG® NoBark 18 Bark Control provides six levels of static stimulation in each of the Low, Medium and High modes, for a total of 18 levels. In each mode, the static stimulation starts at the lowest level and progresses to the next level (to a maximum of six levels) each time your dog barks within 30 seconds of the previous bark. If your dog does not bark again within 30 seconds, the static stimulation will be reset to the lowest level in that mode.
Note: As a built-in safety feature, if your dog barks 15 or more times in 50 seconds, the unit will automatically shut off for three minutes.
