The SportDOG No Bark 6 Collar comes out of the box ready to use, with no programming required. It allows you to continue your behavior training program by correcting the dog even when you are not at home. The vibration sensor probe in between the stimulation contact points on the receiver detects when your dog is barking, which causes a momentary stimulation and an audible beep. The receiver has 6 stimulation levels that the correction progresses through as your dog continues to bark. The stimulation level will increase one increment every time your dog barks within 30 seconds of the last bark. Should the dog stop barking for 30 seconds, the stimulation intensity will return to the original low level. As a safety feature, the receiver will shut off for 3 minutes should your dog bark 15 or more times in 50 seconds. Operates on a user-replaceable RFA-67 battery with a 3-6 month battery life (included).
The flexible ¾ in. wide blaze orange plastic collar strap can be adjusted to fit dogs’ necks between 12 and 26 in. in diameter. You can use this on nearly any sized dog: from blocky retrievers down to small toy dogs, as the receiver weighs less than two ounces.
The receiver and collar are both fully waterproof and easy to wipe clean. The SportDOG No Bark 6 collar is an economical training tool backed by the dependable SportDOG name and two-year warranty.
This collar works well, and is a great value for the price. While it is not the fanciest bark collar, it does the job for most dogs, including my barky group of 4. It is very durable, but no collar is indestructible, if the dog is super determined. So keep an eye on it, to be sure that the dog has not gotten hold of the end and chewed it up. Otherwise, this is GREAT!
