With 18 levels of stimulation and no programming required, you can easily and effectively control your dog's barking.

With an automatic safety shut-off, you can be sure your dog will not be overcorrected as well. The NoBark was also built to last; featuring a waterproof collar receiver, a long-life, replaceable lithium battery and an adjustable collar for neck sizes between 6 and 28 inches.
Directions: To Fit the NoBark 18 Important: The proper fit and placement of your NoBark 18 is important for effective operation. The Contact Points must have direct contact with your dog's skin on the underside of his neck.
To assure a proper fit, please follow these steps: 1. Make sure that the battery is not installed in the NoBark 18. 2. Start with your dog standing comfortably. 3. Place the NoBark 18 high on your dog’s neck close to the ears. Center the Contact Points underneath your dog's neck, touching the skin. Note: It is sometimes necessary to trim the hair around the Contact Points to make sure that contact is consistent. 4. Check the tightness of the NoBark 18 by inserting one finger between the end of a Contact Point and your dog's neck. The fit should be snug but not constricting. 5. Allow your dog to wear the NoBark 18 for several minutes then recheck the fit. Check the fit again as your dog becomes more comfortable with the NoBark 18.
Important: Never leave the NoBark 18 on for more than 12 consecutive hours.
Important: For comfort, safety and effectiveness of product, please ensure the following:
Check the fit to prevent excessive pressure by being able to insert one finger between a Contact Point and your dog's skin.
Examine your dog daily for any signs of a rash or sore.
If a rash or sore is observed, discontinue the use of the NoBark 18 for a few days.
If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian.
Your dog's neck and the Contact Points must be washed weekly with a wash cloth and mild hand soap, then rinsed thoroughly.
A condition called Pressure Necrosis, which is a devitalization of the skin due to excessive and prolonged contact against the Contact Points, may occur if the steps above are not followed.
