How It Works
The NoBark SBC-10R uses a patented Perfect Bark sensor system to provide the most reliable bark detection available. The unit delivers static stimulation via the Contact Points only if it detects both vibration from the vocal cords and the sound of the bark. External noise or another dog's bark won't trigger a correction. The NoBark SBC-10R offers 10 levels of correction. As a built-in safety feature, if your dog barks 15 or more times in 50 seconds in any mode, the unit will automatically shut off for 3 minutes.
In Temperament Learning mode, the correction starts at the lowest level and progresses to the next level each time your dog barks within 30 seconds of the previous bark. The collar remembers the correction level needed to stop your dog's barking. The next time your dog starts barking, the correction will start at the last level used. Once your dog has learned not to bark, the initial warning correction is reduced.
In Progressive Correction mode, the correction starts at the lowest level and progresses to the next level each time your dog barks within 30 seconds of the previous bark. If your dog doesn't bark again within 30 seconds, the correction will reset to the lowest level in that mode.
In User-Selected mode, you choose the correction level. If your dog barks, the collar will correct him at that level until he stops barking.

I have 2 dogs and work midnights for 7 nights in a row and then have 7 consecutive nights off. I work 12 hours shifts and am gone 14 hours a day including drive time so I cannot crate my dogs for that long of a time period. I have a huge backyard that is fenced in with a 6 foot tall chain link fence and a doggy flap so that my dogs can come and go as they please. Out of consideration for my neighbors, I take them to a doggy daycare/boarding facility on the weeks that I work and they spend the entire week there. Needless to say, it is very expensive, and I miss them terribly the week they are gone. One of my dogs is a Doberman who runs the fence and barks at any person and any animal and doesn't stop until the person goes in their house or the offending animal is out of sight. I purchased this collar so that I could start leaving them home the weeks that I work.
My neighbor agreed to help me train him on this collar. One bark from him resulted in one light zap from the collar and that was it. When the collar goes on, he still charges and runs the fence line, but the big difference is he's not barking. I did notice that he can whine, shake his head, run around with my other dog, play growl at my other dog, drink, or eat and the collar will not falsely trigger. I had my other dog out while testing and although she was barking at my neighbor and my Doberman was not, the collar did not go off. I believe the absolute biggest advantage to this collar is that there are fewer false corrections because in order to elicit a shock, it has to be set off by the combination of sound (the dog barking) AND vocal cord vibrations. This is also why fitting the collar properly is critical. If it's too loose, it can't sense the vocal cord vibration, and if it's too tight your dog may develop pressure sores (not to mention I would think it would be very uncomfortable). The collar is to be fitted high on the neck with the strap right behind the ears and the box directly under the jawbone.
There are 3 modes of programming with 9 intensity levels. Program 1 increases intensity with each bark. Once the barking stops, the program uses that last correction level as a starting point if the barking starts again. Program 2 starts at the lowest level and increases if the dog continues to bark but resets back to the lowest level once the barking stops. Program 3 delivers the same intensity with every bark. The intensity level in Program 3 is chosen by the user.
So far this is what I like:
As stated above, it takes sound AND vibration in order to trigger.
It has 3 training modes as well as 9 intensity levels.
Waterproof which is very important if your dogs have access to the outside while wearing this.
Automatic safety shut off.
Each program mode has a different color blinking light set which is very bright and can be seen from a distance.
What I don't like or would like to see improved:
It's light-weight at about 4.8 oz but medium in size. I would really like to see a smaller one as I want my dog to be as comfortable as possible.
It's easy to set once you know how, but it's not intuitive. You have to take the time to read the directions to get it set right.
I would prefer if it would give a warning vibration on the first bark and then a static correction if the dog barks again (the Dogtra YS300 does this but is triggered by sound only which I don't like).
I would like to see it count the number of barks like the Tri-Tronics Bark Limiter.
Longer probes for dogs with fleshier necks or longer, thicker hair have to be purchased separately.
Would like to see an option to purchase a collar that has a safety release feature.
For reference my dog is a 3 year-old, male neutered Doberman, that is over 100 lbs. Please see customer images to see how this collar fits him size-wise. Also, I use program #2 (blue and green lights) that starts at the lowest level and increases in intensity if the dog continues to bark. Once the dog is quiet, the unit resets itself to the lowest level.
I spent less than $100 on this collar and I've been spending over $700 every month on daycare/boarding fees. Even if I have to replace this collar every year (which I don't anticipate), I am still saving a ton of money. I am going to write the trainer who suggested this collar and the Sportdog company a big fat thank you letter!
I've had this collar for a little over 2 years now. I use it on an average of 100 hours per month and it still working well, and I've had no problem (that I know of) with false corrections. The battery is still going strong.
These collars have 3 different ways to program them. One, the collar increases the shock level beginning from the lowest level when your dog starts barking and then escalates eight levels until the dog stops. It then remembers the level necessary to stop the barking and commences at this same level the next time your dog begins barking. This is the default program, but my wife and I found it too punitive.
The second program begins at the lowest level and escalates until your dog stops but reverts to the lowest level next time your dog starts barking. This is the program we use.
The third program gives him the same shock each and every time he barks. My wife and I preferred what we considered the most humane program, number 2, and it works great. The collar requires a sound and a vibration to buzz the dog which theoretically reduces false discharges.
I directly compared this to the Tritonics and the Remington, both of which worked fine. The Sportdog was rechargeable which is what ultimately sold us and it had more different ways of programming the collar for the ultimate in flexibility. The Tritonics only shocks at one level. The Remington included programs 2 and three but no escalating shock found in Sportdog's program 1. Since we don't use program 1 that would not have been a problem. The other reason we went with the Sportdog rather than the Remington is that the Remington, though theoretically just as good, is new to the market and I could find no reliable user reviews.
For our dogs, you must remember to put the collar on or the darn mutts will begin barking again. My wife wanted our dogs to continue barking while in the house for the additional security and that has been no problem.
Your dog will take some time getting used to the collar and may behave a bit neurotically until they figure out just what the heck is going on. To reduce the level of neurosis, use program 2 which gives them a chance to learn and is less punitive.
Great product! For the record, I called the manufacturer and it is waterproof.
The collar is adjustable - I just cut off the extra length. It stays charged for a long time. I don't use the collar often (especially turned "on") - but I only have to charge it a couple of times a year. My only request would be that it came in a smaller size.
