The SportDOG SBC-8 Bark Control Collar has been proven safe, comfortable, and effective for dogs as small as 8 lbs. using digital technology to provide some of the most reliable bark detection available.

The SBC-8 utilizes Progressive Correction to correct your dog from barking. The correction starts at the lowest level and increases to the next level (up to 8) each time your dog barks within 30 seconds of the previous bark. If your dog does not bark again within 30 seconds, the correction will reset to the lowest level (1).

SportDOG SBC-8 Features:

  • 8 levels of progressive correction
  • Waterproof and submersible to 25 feet
  • User-replaceable 4LR44 battery
  • Average battery life 200 hours (depending on how often your dog barks)
  • Battery indicator light
  • For dogs as small as 8 lbs.
  • Fits neck sizes 5"-22"

    SportDOG SBC-8 Includes:

  • NoBark SBC-8 collar
  • 3/4" black collar strap
  • Standard contact points
  • Long contact points
  • Test light
  • Hex driver
  • Owner's manual

  • Using the SBC-8 NoBark Collar:

    IMPORTANT: Do not leave your dog alone the first few times he receives a static stimulation.

    Place the Bark Control Collar properly on your dog and wait nearby until he barks. Most dogs will understand quickly that the Bark Control Collar is disrupting their urge to bark and will relax and stop barking. Because the static stimulation may be surprising or startling at first, some dogs may bark more at the initial correction.

    On rare occasions, a dog may get into a bark-stimulation-bark-stimulation cycle. If this happens, reassure your dog with calm, soothing tones. As your dog relaxes, he will understand that if he becomes quiet, he will not receive more static stimulation. The small minority of dogs that have this reaction will likely only have it the first time they wear the Bark Control Collar.

    You should notice a reduction in your dog's barking within the first couple of days that he wears the Bark Control Collar. At this point, it is important to remember the learning process is still not complete. Dogs will "test" the new learning experience and will increase their attempts to bark. This usually occurs during the second week a dog wears the Bark Control Collar. If this does occur, remain consistent and do not alter your use of the Bark Control Collar. You must place the Bark Control Collar on your dog in every situation when you expect him to be quiet. If your dog is not wearing the Bark Control Collar, he may resume barking and his learning would suffer a setback.

    Fitting the SBC-8 Correctly:

    1. Make sure the NoBark collar is off.
    2. Start with your dog standing comfortably.
    3. Place the collar high on your dog's neck close to the ears.
    4. Center the contact points underneath your dog's neck, touching the skin. It is sometimes necessary to trim the hair around the contact points to make sure that contact is consistent.
    5. Check the tightness of the NoBark by inserting one finger between the end of a contact point and your dog's neck. The fit should be snug but not constricting.
    6. Allow your dog to wear the SBC-8 for several minutes, then recheck the fit as your dog becomes more comfortable with the NoBark.

    Manufacturer's FAQ:

    Will the NoBark collar work for my dog?
      The NoBark Collar is safe and effective for all breeds and sizes of dogs, though it may be too large for dogs under 8 pounds to wear comfortably. Your dog should be older than 6 months and able to learn basic obedience commands.
    Is the NoBark Collar safe and humane?
      Yes. The NoBark Collar is designed to get your dog's attention, not to punish him. However, the initial correction may startle your dog.
    Will my dog stop barking completely?
      The SportDOG SBC-8 effectively and humanely stops barking when it is worn. It should only be worn during periods of unwanted barking.
    Will another dog's bark set off the NoBark SBC-8?
    Can I attach a leash, rope, or chain to the bark control collar?
      No, we don't recommend attaching anything to a bark control collar. This can result in pulling the contact points too tightly against your dog's neck.
    Why can't I just leave the collar on all the time?
      Proper fit of the collar is important, but a collar worn for too long or made too tight on the dog's neck may cause skin damage.

      FINALLY! My dog is no longer barking!!!
      March 19, 2021
      I tried multiple other bark collars but nothing worked. This one has been great! We have two dogs and as far as I can tell, the other dog barking is not activating the collar.

      He goes through batteries fairly quickly (they seem to last about 2 weeks). If you have an active barker like mine, you might want to opt for the rechargeable option, I wish I had! I'm hoping as he adjusts he will wear it out less frequently. Batteries are available online only in my area so I keep a stockpile on hand.
      • - Not activated by other dog
      • - Actually stops my VERY active barker!!!
      • - Now I can rest easy knowing we are not bothering the neighbors!!!
      • - Nothing else worked!!!
      • - Goes through batteries quickly (because he barks THAT much!!!)
