3 YEAR BARK COLLAR AND 1 YEAR BATTERY WARRANTY

The Bark Collar unit is covered by a 3 year manufacturer’s warranty while the battery is covered for 1 year.
 

BARK COUNT METER – SHOWS NUMBER OF BARKS

Check whether your selected setting is effective by determining the number of barks with the Bark Indication Counter when you get home and change the level accordingly.
 

15 TOTAL STIMULATION LEVELS – 5 SETTINGS WITH 3 AUTOMATIC LEVELS EACH

The DogWatch BT-7 features 5 settings with 3 automatically increasing levels within each settings giving you a total of 15 levels to train your dog’s nuisance barking.
 

AUTOMATIC PROGRESSIVE SETTING OR USE ONE OF THE 5 SETTINGS

You have the option of fully progressive stimulation or one of the 5 settings available. This allows you to find the perfect level or setting to eliminate your dog’s nuisance barking.
 

VIBRATION ONLY OR STATIC STIMULATION

You can use either Static Stimulation or Vibration Stimulation to train your dog. Vibration is recommended when training the dog how the bark collar works or when your dog has been trained with Static Stimulation but needs a soft reminder every now and then with a short vibration.
 

LONGER STIMULATIONS ON LOW LEVELS – EFFECTIVE TRAINING

Stimulations last for 2 seconds per activation on lower levels and about half a second on higher levels for better and effective training. This can be compared to a long growl from a mother and a short strong bark to train your dog.
 

RECHARGEABLE LI-ION BATTERY – UP TO 3 MONTHS ON A SINGLE CHARGE

The bark collar uses a rechargeable Li-Ion battery and can last up to 3 months of average use.

CHARGING THE BARK COLLAR

IMPORTANT! Charge the battery for straight 3-4 hours before first use.

Note: The BarkCollar is automatically set on ‘off’ mode when connected to the charger.

Lift the protective flap above the charging port 1 and insert the charger pin.

  • While charging, the status light 2 will turn Red.
  • Once fully charged, the status light will turn Green. 


When BarkCollar is ‘on’:

  • Fully charged: flashing Green. 
  • Needs charging: flashing Red.


BATTERY STATUS LIGHT

Blinks Green

The battery normally stays charged for several months of use. Recharging varies on the frequency of use and of dog’s barking behavior.
 

CHOOSING CONTACT POSTS

Select the Contact Posts that provide the best skin contact.

  • Short posts work well with short-haired dogs. 
  • Long posts work best with long hair or thick-coated dogs.

Screw the posts securely into the Bark Collar. Always check that the posts are tightly screwed on the collar.
 

TURNING THE BARK COLLAR ‘ON’

To turn “ON” the Bark Collar, rotate the dial clockwise from ‘0’ (off) to your desired setting. This can be done using your fingers or with a coin.
Each time the unit is turned ‘on’ and each time the setting is changed, the Bark Collar vibrates briefly and the status light will illuminate. This is an auto ‘self-test’ to confirm the Bark Collar is working.
 

THE BARK COLLAR SETTINGS

The Bark Collar has 7 settings.
Vibration Setting and Settings 1-5:

  • The intensity of the vibration or stimulation for each level gradually increases as the dog barks. 
  • After 3 minutes of no barking, the Bark Collar automatically resets to the lowest intensity for that setting. 


Progressive Setting
‘P’ Setting begins with vibration only and then automatically changes to progressive stimulation (from Low to High) if the dog continues to bark. The Bark Collar automatically resets to vibration after 3 minutes of no barking.

SETTINGS
O ‘off’
V Vibration only 
1 Low
2 Medium Low
3 Medium
4 Medium-High
5 High
P Progressive
 

FITTING THE BARK COLLAR

Make sure that the setting is in the off (‘0’) position when fitting the bark collar.

For the product to be effective, the collar should be properly fitted.

  • The collar strap should be directly behind your dog’s ears. 
  • The collar should have a snug fit. The contact posts should be able to detect the dog’s bark and should be able to send the vibration. Contact posts must always touch the dog’s skin. 

The Bark Collar should be positioned at the center just below the dog’s chin. If the collar is too loose, or if the collar is placed away from the center of the neck, the bark may not be detected and the dog may not feel the vibration or stimulation at all.
 

FINDING THE APPROPRIATE SETTING

1. Turn Bark Collar “on” and set it to the lowest setting - either Vibration (‘V’) or Low (‘1’). 
2. Put the collar on the dog’s neck (page 7). 
3. To determine the appropriate setting that fits your dog, you need to observe your dog’s barking activity. When your dog barks, look out for some response from the dog such as a head shake, ear twitch, change of expression and be keen on any change in the pattern of barking. 

The sensation felt from the collar should be just enough to distract the dog from barking. 

IMPORTANT 

  • There is a brief moment ‘bark forgiveness’ which delays the collar activation, so you can expect that the response of the dog will not be immediate. 
  • The vibration or stimulation gradually increases (for each setting) as the dog continues to bark
  • The response should only be subtle and not very obvious. 


4. If you do not notice any response from the dog after several minutes of using the collar, change the setting to one level higher. 
5. Allow your dog to bark again with a new and higher setting. Keep an eye on his response, the way you did with the first level. Repeat step until you observe that the dog is responsive to the correction felt. 

INCREASE THE SETTING ONLY one level at a time.
 

USING THE BARK COLLAR

Once you have already found the appropriate setting, keep the Bark Collar on during the day or whenever you feel the dog is most likely to be barking excessively.
We recommend removing the Bark Collar at night (or for at least several hours daily) to prevent skin irritation and to allow the dog to rest.

Give your dog time to associate the vibration or stimulation with his/her barking.

When the Bark Collar is properly set; most dogs will eventually figure out that the sensation/vibration is relative to his barking and he will soon realize that it stops when the barking stops as well. Some dogs learn this quickly; while others take some time.

If your dog’s barking does not improve after a while; you need to adjust the settings to a level higher.

If after a reasonable period with the collar the dog still continues to bark excessively; then the setting might be too low for your dog. You need to increase the setting to one level higher.

Warning
This product is not intended for dogs with a history of aggressive behavior. If in doubt, consult a qualified professional before using this product.
 

THE BARK-COUNTER

The Bark Counter is a feature that provides information on how often the collar was activated. This helps you track your dog’s progress especially if you were out for the day.
To view the Bark Counter, Look at the led Status Light when you turn the Bark Collar “off”. 

To View the Bark-Counter

  • Turn the settings to ‘off’ position. Watch the LED Status Light as you turn the Bark Collar “off”. 
  • As you turn ‘off’ the Bark Collar, the led Status Light will flash if it was since the last time you turned it ‘on’, 
  • The number of flashes represents the number activations as described below.

2 Flashes

1-5 Activations

3 Flashes

6-10 Activations

4 Flashes

11-15 Activations

5 Flashes

15+ Activations

 

  • Turning ‘off’ the Bark Collar automatically resets the Bark-Counter.

If the collar always indicates that it has been activated for a number of times (for the time period monitored), you probably need to adjust the Bark Collar setting one level higher.


TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS

If the Bark Collar does not seem to be working or it does not show any sign of progress or improvement:

  • Check that the collar is turned on. Once the device is on, the LED Status Light should flash green. 
  • Be sure that the battery is charged. 
  • Make sure that the charger is properly plugged when charging.


If your dog is not responding to the Bark Collar or if the dog still barks even while Bark Collar is on:

  • Make sure the collar fits well on your dog. (see: Fitting The Bark Collar, Pg. 7) 
  • Tighten the collar strap if it is loose. 
  • Adjust the position of the Bark Collar; it should be on the center of the dog’s neck. 
  • Make sure the contact points should touch your dog’s neck. 
  • Increase the Bark Collar settings. (see: Finding Appropriate Setting, Pg. 8)
