The DogWatch BT-7 has a built-in vibration sensor that picks up the vibration of your dog's vocal cords when they bark. When your dog barks, the collar will deliver a safe static correction (quick pulses) to control your dog's barking.

The collar has two different modes:

Manual Set: Using the dial located at the top of the collar module, you can manually set the collar at a correction level that matches your dog's temperament. When your dog barks, the collar will deliver a correction at the level you set.

Progressive Mode: When the collar is set to progressive mode, the collar will begin on the lowest level (vibration) and slowly increase one level at a time (vibration to level 5) as your dog continues barking. After 3 minutes of no barking, the collar will reset to the lowest level.


Stimulation Settings:

O - Off

V - Vibration Only - When your dog barks, the intensity of the vibration or stimulation (for that setting) gradually increases.

1-5 - User selected stimulation settings range from the lowest intensity (1) to the highest intensity (5). Each setting has 3 automatically increasing levels that will reset to the lowest intensity after 3 minutes of silence.

P - Progressive - The progressive mode begins by progressing through the vibration levels and then on to static stimulation if the dog continues to bark. After 3 minutes of silence, the bark collar will reset to the lowest intensity level for that setting.


Bark Counter

The bark counter feature keeps track of your dog's barking behaviour while you're not at home. This feature provides you with peace of mind that the collar is doing its job when you're not around. Simply turn the unit off once you get home and check the LED status light on the unit. Bark Counter LED guide below.

2 Flashes: 1 - 5 Activations

3 Flashes: 6 - 10 Activations

4 Flashes: 11 - 15 Activations

5 Flashes: 15+ Activations

Please note: If the collar flashes more than 2 or 3 times, ensure the collar fitting is correct. If the collar is fitted correctly and your dog continues to bark, use the manual set mode to increase the stimulation correction one level at a time until you reach a level that matches your dog's drive.

  • The BT-7 collar has a Bark Forgiveness Feature that allows your dog to bark for 3 seconds before delivering a static correction - This only occurs after a long period of time where your dog is silent. If your dog continues in a series of barks, the collar will deliver stimulations 0.5 seconds after your dog's bark.
  • The Progressive mode begins with the vibration settings which may allow your dog to bark a few times before the collar reaches a static stimulation that matches their drive. We recommend manually setting the collar to a level that matches their drive to avoid this.
