Review of the SportDOG Rechargeable No Bark 10R
We will begin our review of the SportDOG rechargeable No Bark 10R bark control collar with the very clever programmable functions that it has. The NoBark 10R has ten levels of static correction that can be used with three different programmable settings. The first setting, called temperament learning, will start at the lowest level of correction and then increase if the dog continues to bark. The collar will remember the level that was effective and, the next time the dog barks, the correction will be given at that level. The second setting, called the progressive correction, will start at the lowest level of correction and increase until the dog stops barking. If the dog barks again within 30 seconds, the collar will emit a correction at the last level that stopped the dog barking. If the dog does not bark again within 30 seconds, the collar will reset itself back to the lowest level. The third setting allows you to set the collar to always give a correction at a chosen level.
The SportDOG rechargeable No Bark 10R bark control collar detects a dog’s bark by vibration and by sound, so that will reduce the possibility of false corrections. The collar is waterproof and submersible and, as the name suggests, the batteries are rechargeable. The SportDOG No Bark 10R is designed for dogs weighing 8 pounds or over and for neck sizes of 5-22 inches.
