Neil's Review

The Sport dog SBC-R is the best all round collar on the market, taking over from the SBC-10R. The SBC-R will suit dogs from mild to stubborn temperament that are over 5kg. Having 10 levels of correction and 3 modes of operation combined with being rechargeable, waterproof and a 3 year warranty, you can see why this is our best selling collar!

The SportDOG SBC-R No Bark Collar uses Silent Partner, vibration detection technology to detect your dog's bark.  When your dog barks, the collar will deliver a static correction at a level between 1 (lowest level) and 10 (highest level).

The SBC-R has three different modes of operation:

Temperament Learning Mode: When your dog begins barking, the collar delivers a static stimulation at the lowest level (level 1) and increases one level at a time if your dog continues to bark again within 30 seconds of the previous bark. The collar keeps track of the last/highest level used to stop your dog's barking. After 30 seconds of silence, the static stimulation will remain at the last highest level used during your dog's barking period. If your dog continues to bark, the collar will resume to deliver static stimulations at that level. 

Progressive Correction Mode: Like the Temperament Learning mode, the Progressive Correction Mode starts at the lowest stimulation level and increases one level at a time when your dog barks within 30 seconds of the previous bark. After 30 seconds of silence the collar resets to level 1.

User-Selected Correction Mode: This mode allows you to manually set the collar to the level of static stimulation (1-10) you want your dog to receive when they bark. Please Note: Always set the stimulation strength at the lowest level to begin with, if your dog continues to bark, increase the correction strength one level at a time until you reach a level that matches your dog's drive.
