The SportDOG SBC-R No Bark Collar features vibration detection technology designed to detect your dog's bark. When activated, the collar will deliver a static stimulation level between level 1 (lowest level) and level 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 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 after 30 seconds, the collar will continue to deliver static stimulations at that level. 

Progressive Correction Mode: Progressive Correction Mode starts with the collar at the lowest static stimulation level. When your dog barks, the collar delivers a stimulation at the lowest level. With each bark within 30 seconds, the collar will increase one level at a time until the collar reaches a level that controls your dog's barking. Once your dog is silent for 30 seconds, the collar resets to level 1.

User-Selected Correction Mode (Recommended): This mode allows you to manually set the collar at a level between 1 and 10. When your dog barks, the collar will deliver a static stimulation at the level you set. Please note: Start the collar at the lowest level (level 1). If your dog continues to bark through this stimulation, increase the collar to level 2. If your dog continues to bark through level 2, increase the collar to level 3 and so on until you reach a level that matches your dog's drive.
