PROGRESSIVE CORRECTION MODE – AUTOMATIC STIMULATION

SportDOG Rechargeable SBC-8 uses automatic progressive correction mode where there are 8 levels that will gradually increase if your dog keeps barking and will automatically go back to the lowest level (level 1) if your dog stops barking for 30 seconds.
Note: As a buit-in security feature, if your dog barks 15times or more within 80 second period, this bark collar will automatically stop releasing static correction for 30 seconds and reset back to the lowest level, then resume to normal operation


SILENT PARTNER BARK TECHNOLOGY – PATENTED FEATURE

The Silent Partner Bark Technology takes advantage of dual detection of both sound and vibration coming from your dog simultaneously for more accurate detection. Accuracy of bark detection should always be a must when choosing your bark collar so your training is consistent and stays effective.


DRYTEK -  WATERPROOF BARK COLLAR – FULLY SUBMERSIBLE

Does your dog like jumping into the pool? Don’t worry, the SportDOG Rechargeable NoBark  SBC-8 Bark Collar is completely waterproof and submersible to prevent water damage.


200 HOURS BATTERY LIFE - REPLACEABLE 4L R44 BATTERY

Depending how frequent your dog is barking, the battery can last up to 200 hours before it can be replaced again..Very easy to replace 4L R44 Batttery..

 

The SportDOG NoBark SBC-8 Bark Collar uses several features designed to shorten the training phase and promote good behaviour:

  • A patented sensor system offers the most reliable bark detection available. The unit delivers a static correction via the contact points only if it detects BOTH vibrations from the vocal cords AND the sound of the bark.
  • One correction mode: 
  1. In Progressive Correction mode (indicated by blue/green light, see mode chart for example on page 7), the correction 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 correction will be reset to the lowest level (Level 1)

    Important
  • DO NOT attach a leash to the SBC-8 No Bark Collar. You may put a separate non-metallic collar on your dog’s neck and attach a leash. Note: Be sure the extra collar does not interfere with the contact points. 
  • Your dog may wear a harness for attaching a leash and/or tags while wearing the NoBark SBC-8
  • Before playing with your dog, remove the NoBark SBC-8 activity may cause your dog to bark, which could lead to him associating the play with the correction. 
  • Never leave the NoBark SBC-8 on for more than 12 consecutive hours. 
  • We do not recommend that any of our products be used on aggressive dogs. We recommend you contact your local veterinarian or professional trainer to determine if your dog might be aggressive.

Replacing the Battery

Be sure to replace the battery of the NoBark SBC-8  by following the steps labeled below.

The NoBark SBC-8 uses 4L-R44 replaceable battery. When the unit shows that the battery is low (battery icon on the display shows 1 bar or less and/or the light flashes red 3 times every 4 seconds) it is time to replace the battery.

Typical battery life is 200 hours, depending on how frequently your dog barks. Nevertheless, due to greater use during your dog’s training, your first battery may not last as long. To save battery life, turn the NoBark SBC-8 off when not in use.

Follow these steps to replacing  the battery:
1. Remove the NoBark SBC-8 from your dog. 
2. Remove both screw located on the either side of the Contact Points using the 3/23 Hex Key (included in the box) 
3. Remove the Battery Lid by pushing on one side of the collar strap. Removing the collar strap entirely can make the process easier but not needed.
4. Remove the current battery.
5. Install the new battery (4L R44) aligned with the battery icon printed on the inside of the unit.
6. Replaced the battery lid. 
7. Reinstall the screws but do not over tighten it. 



TO FIT THE NOBARK SBC-8

Important: The correct fit and location of your NoBark SBC-8 is vital for effective operation. The contact points must have direct contact with your dog’s skin on the underside of his neck.

To guarantee a correct fit, make sure to follow these steps:
1. Ensure the NoBark SBC-8 is off. 
2. Begin with your dog standing comfortably. 
3. Put the NoBark SBC-8 high on your dog’s neck close to the ears. Center the contact points under your dog’s neck, touching the skin. 
Note: It is sometimes required to trim the hair around the contact points to make sure that contact is consistent. 
4. Examine the tightness of the NoBark SBC-8 Bark Collar by putting one finger between the end of a contact point and your dog’s neck. The fit should be snug but not constricting. 
5. Let your dog wear the SportDog SBC-8 NoBark for several minutes, then recheck the fit. Check the fit again as your dog becomes more comfortable with the bark collar. 

Important: Certainly not leave the NoBark SBC-8 on for more than 12 consecutive hours.

Important: For comfort, safety and effectiveness of this product please guarantee the following:

  • Check the fit to prevent excessive pressure by being able to insert one finger between a contact point and your dog’s skin. 
  • Examine your dog daily for any symbols of a rash or sore. 
  • Discontinue the use of the NoBark SBC-8 for a few days if a rash or sore is observed. 
  • Go to your veterinarian if the condition persists beyond 48 hours. 
  • Your dog’s neck and the contact points must be washed weekly with a washcloth and mild hand soap and then rinsed thoroughly. 

A condition called Pressure Necrosis, which is a devitalisation of the skin due to extreme and prolonged contact against the contact points, may occur if the steps above are not followed.


WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT WHILE IN USE OF THE NOBARK SBC-8

Important: Don’t leave your dog alone the first few times he receives a correction.

Put the NoBark SBC-8 correctly on your dog and wait nearby until he barks. Most dogs will recognize quickly that the SportDog NoBark SBC-8 is disturbing their urge to bark and will relax and stop barking.

As the correction might be startling or astonishing, some dogs may bark at the initial correction.

On infrequent occasions, a dog may get into a bark-correction-bark-correction cycle. If this happens, reassure your dog with calm, soothing tones.

As your dog relaxes, he will realize that if he becomes quiet, he will not receive more corrections. Of the few dogs that have this reaction, it usually arises only the first time they wear the NoBark SBC-8.

You need to notice a decrease in your dog’s barking within the first couple of days that he wears the NoBark SBC-8 Now, it is necessary to keep in mind the learning procedure remains incomplete.

Dogs will “test” the new learning experience and will increase their efforts to bark. This typically occurs through the second week a dog wears the NoBark SBC-8

If this does occur, remain consistent and do not alter your use of the NoBark SBC-8. You must place the NoBark SBC-8 on your dog in every situation when you expect him to be quiet.

If your dog is not wearing the NoBark SBC-8 he may resume barking and his learning would suffer a setback.
 

REGULAR MAINTENANCE

  • Check your dog’s neck for irritation (daily). 
  • Check it of NoBark SBC-8 on the dog (daily). 
  • Check if the battery needs to be recharged (weekly). 
  • Clean contact points and wash the neck (weekly).
