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.
My fiancé and I are experienced dog owners and currently have two rescued pit bull mixes. One is sweet and skiddish with ceaseless energy, but is very good when we are not home and the other is calm, laid back, and incredibly intolerant of being left alone. We work normal business hours and leave the house around 7:30am and return between 5:00-6:00. Our neighbor was reporting that he barked nearly constantly for at least 4-5 of those hours. This seemed unbelievable to us as he NEVER barks when we are home. We thought she must be confused. We bought a doggie camera to verify. She was correct. He was barking basically 8:00-11:30 and then 4:00-whenever we returned home. He was also destructive, pulling apart an old couch we have and having multiple accidents while we were gone. The camera showed us that he would have accidents basically immediately after we left, just minutes after his last walk in the morning. It seemed to be a sort of separation anxiety mixed with boredom. We tried it all -- puzzle toys, dog music, medication, positive reinforcement training, extra walks before we left and after we got home. There were days that it was better, but he was still barking 2-3 hours minimum. In desperation, we started to look at other options. I feel like I read everything on the internet about shock collars. I lost sleep over the idea of using one. But we needed a solution or else we would likely be asked by our HOA to remove him. So, I read the reviews and I purchased this collar. We owned it for two weeks before using it because I was so reluctant. Like many other posters have noted, I now wish we would've explored this option sooner. While he has only worn it today, I cannot overstate how effective it was. In fact, he was so quiet, we had my father stop by today to check to make sure he did not escape. He found him peacefully asleep on the couch with a bone. He spent the day resting and sleeping and playing, with only three barks (we get bark alerts from the camera). We used program 1. I was worried that because he is a tough dog that it would not be strong enough to affect him, but I happily seem to be wrong. When I got home from work, he seemed like a different dog in the best way. I often come home to find him out of breath, overwhelmed and overstimulated. Today, he greeted me at the door with a wagging tail, a kiss on the face and a run outside to go potty. There were no accidents today, no destructive behaviors and no barking. We haven't had a single day where that trifecta had been accomplished. I'm not sure if maybe the collar helped him to not bark and therefore not experience the adrenaline meltdown that caused the other behaviors? I really have no idea. All I know is that this collar fixed in 1 day what we have been trying to fix for six exhausting and expensive months.
There were no marks on his neck when I got home and I removed the collar right away when I got home. He didn't seem too bothered by it one way or the other in terms of wearing it. I was concerned he would try to get it off, but that didn't seem to occur today. It was rotated slightly on his neck, but no big deal.
I am all for positive training for our dogs, but this collar's effectiveness today speak for itself. I will update as time goes on if needed, but at least for today, this thing seems to be our silver bullet.
One month update: this thing has transformed our dog. He is now calm, happy and seemingly cured of his separation anxiety. He wears it most of the time when we are gone, but I often don't turn it on. Today we were gone an hour without it on him and he was an angel. No bark alerts, no accidents, no destruction. This thing continues to be our magic bullet. Still no skin reaction (and he tends to have sensitive skin) and he has not made any attempts to remove it when we are gone. Cannot say enough good things about this. He is so much happier now and it has dramatically improved everyone's life.
