Whole Lotta Barking Goin' On?

Dogs bark. It’s a normal, natural dog behavior. But some dogs bark too much. It’s not hard to tell the difference between occasional barking and barking that is excessive. If you have a barker, the BarkCollar can help.

BarkCollar No-Bark Trainer (BT-7)

Overview

The BarkCollar™ is designed to change your dog’s barking behavior. If your dog barks excessively, the BarkCollar delivers a vibration or a stimulation at a level that is just enough to distract your dog and break the barking cycle.

The BarkCollar has 7 adjustable settings from low to high plus a vibration option so you can select a setting appropriate for your dog. The vibration or stimulation gradually increases within the selected setting if the dog continues to bark. When the barking stops, the collar resets.

BT-7 Features

Features

7 Adjustable Settings

The 7 adjustable settings include a vibration setting, 5 stimulation settings and a Progressive setting that begins with Vibration and gradually progresses from Low to High if the dog continues to bark.

Progressive Levels

When the dog barks, the level of the vibration or stimulation (for that setting) gradually increases. When your dog stops barking, the BarkCollar resets to the lowest level for that setting.

Bark Forgiveness Delay

When the barking begins, there is a brief delay before the collar activates. This helps differentiate “acceptable” from excessive barking.

Bark Counter

Provides information about how often the collar activated. Helps you learn about your dog’s barking behavior – even if you are not there to observe it.

Long-lasting Battery

The long-lasting, easy-to-recharge battery typically stays charged for several months.

Low battery indicator

Lets you know when it is time to recharge.

Lightweight, waterproof

Because dogs will be dogs.

Frequently Asked Questions

The BarkCollar is used to reduce and eliminate excessive barking.

There are several variables that affect how quickly your dog’s behavior will change, most notably the personality of your dog, the frequency of things that trigger the barking and your dog’s tolerance for distraction when barking. Most dogs begin to understand the relationship between barking and the sensation from the vibration/stimulation after several activations of the collar. Barking behavior will diminish quickly in some dogs and more gradually in others. If there is no noticeable change after a reasonable trial period, check the collar to make sure the fit is good and the contact posts are the correct size. If collar fit is appropriate and the dog continues to bark, the BarkCollar setting should be increased one level.

The components in the BarkCollar are specified to operate from minus 25 degrees (F) to 125 degrees (F). A significant and rapid change in temperature may temporarily disrupt some of the BarkCollar functions until the device adjusts to the new temperature level.

The BarkCollar should be effective on dogs as small as 4 pounds.

We recommend waiting until the dog is 4-6 months old.

No-Bark Trainer FAQs

The BarkCollar is used to reduce and eliminate excessive barking.

A sensor inside the BarkCollar is activated when the dog barks. After three seconds of barking (the ‘bark-forgiveness’ period), the collar activates and delivers either a vibration or an electronic stimulation. The vibration or stimulation setting is adjustable and should be set to a level that is just enough to distract the dog from barking. If the dog continues to bark, the intensity of the vibration/stimulation gradually increases from the minimum to the maximum for that setting. As your dog begins to associate barking with the vibration/stimulation, he also figures out the sensation stops when the barking stops.

The collar strap needs to be placed on the smallest part of the dog’s neck, just below the dog’s ears. It must fit snugly so the contact posts are touching the center of the dog’s neck where the vibration from the dog’s bark can be detected. If the collar is placed too loosely or too far from the center of the dog’s neck, the bark may not be detected.

Yes. The rechargeable battery life is typically several years. The rechargeable battery needs to be replaced when the duration of a re-charge decreases significantly. Replacement batteries are available from DogWatch. The battery is easy to replace.

Yes. If there is no need to have the collar on the dog, it should be taken off the dog and turned off. We recommend removing the collar at night to prevent skin irritation.

Turn-on the BarkCollar and set it to ‘V’ (Vibration). Put the BarkCollar on your dog. Observe the dog barking and look for a response such as a head shake, ear twitch, or change in barking behavior. If you do not see a response, or if the dog continues to bark with no apparent reaction to the collar, increase the setting one level and repeat the process. When you see a subtle reaction from your dog, that setting is a good place to begin training.

Turn-on the BarkCollar. If the Status Light on the BarkCollar blinks green, the battery is charged and the BarkCollar is working. There is also an auto “self-test” (see below) to confirm that the BarkCollar is working.

There is an auto “self-test” built into the collar. When you turn it “on” and each time the setting is changed, the BarkCollar will vibrate briefly and the status light will illuminate. This auto “self-test” confirms the BarkCollar is charged and working properly.

The BarkCollar should be effective on dogs as small as 4 pounds.

We recommend waiting until the dog is 4-6 months.

No. The electronic stimulation is mild. Imagine a slight tickle or light static, like touching a metal doorknob after walking across carpet. The stimulation gets a pet’s attention, similar to a tap on the shoulder.

No – the collar must be in contact with the dog’s neck to be activated.

Yes. The warranty is one year.

There are no specific health restrictions. If you have a concern about your dog using a bark collar due to a health condition, we suggest you contact your Veterinarian.

We recommend using long posts for dogs with long hair or a thick coat. Short posts should be fine for short hair dogs who do not have a thick coat.

The components in the BarkCollar are specified to operate from minus 25 degrees (F) to 125 degrees (F). A significant and rapid change in temperature may temporarily disrupt some of the BarkCollar functions until the device adjusts to the new temperature level.
