The SportDOG SBC-R Bark Control Collar is safe, comfortable, and effective for dogs over 8 pounds. It features digital "Silent Partner" technology to determine your dog's unique bark and filter out all the rest for better bark detection and reduced likelihood of false corrections. Choose from 3 programmable modes and 10 levels of stimulation. The OLED display shows the current operating mode plus remaining battery life. As a built-in safety feature, if your dog barks 15 times or more within an 80 second period, the SBC-R will stop stimulation for 30 seconds, and then resume normal operation.

  • Unique "Silent Partner" technology filters out other sounds for more accurate bark detection
  • 3 correction modes to fit your dog's temperament
  • 10 levels of static stimulation
  • Includes interchangeable short and long contact points
  • Ceases stimulation after 15 barks within an 80 second period for 30 seconds, then resumes stimulation
  • Waterproof and submersible to 10 feet
  • OLED display shows current mode of operation and battery status
  • Quick-charge lithium-ion battery charges in 2 hours and lasts up to 200 hours per charge
  • For dogs as small as 8 lbs.
  • Fits neck sizes 5"-22"

    SportDOG SBC-R Includes:

  • NoBark SBC-R collar
  • 3/4" black collar strap
  • AC charging adapter with cradle
  • Standard contact points
  • Long contact points
  • Owner's manual

  • How it Works:

    The NoBark SBC-R uses SportDOG's "Silent Partner" technology to detect your dog's unique barking style and only then deliver a correction. By filtering out external noise, including another dog's bark, your dog receives the most consistent training possible. Choose from 10 levels of stimulation and 3 modes: Temperament Learning, Progressive Correction, and User-Selected:

      Temperament Learning: correction begins at the lowest level and increases 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/highest level used. The static stimulation level will be reduced 30 seconds after your dog stops barking.
      Progressive Correction: the correction starts at the lowest level and increases 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.
      User-Selected: you manually choose the correction level. If your dog barks, the collar will correct him at the level you've selected until he stops barking.

    Using the SBC-R 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-R 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-R for several minutes, then recheck the fit as your dog becomes more comfortable with the NoBark.


    The SBC-R contains a rechargeable battery pack. When the unit indicates the battery is low (battery icon on the OLED display shows one bar or less) it is time to recharge the unit. Average battery life is 200 hours depending on how often your dog barks. However, due to greater use during your dog's training, your first battery charge may not last as long. To conserve battery life, turn the SBC-R off when not in use.

    Before using the SBC-R for the first time, be sure to charge the unit by following the steps described below:
    1. Align the charging cradle with the charging contacts
    2. Push down on the charging cradle until it snaps into place
    3. Plug the charger into a standard AC wall outlet
    4. While charging, a battery icon will show on the OLED display
    5. Keep the SBC-R in an open, well-ventilated area while charging to prevent overheating
    6. When charging is complete the battery charger will automatically shut off
    7. Remove the charging cradle from the SBC-R
    8. Unplug the charger from the wall outlet

    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 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-R 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-R?
    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.

      Trainer Recommended
      December 30, 2021
      We're fortunate enough to have an exceptional training center in our tri-state region, and the trainers there are nationally recognized. One of the trainers has a facility in South Carolina and also trains here in the Midwest.

      I have a puppy mill Havanese who has a persistent and disturbing sharp bark, and the trainer recommended this training collar as being her "very favorite", explained why. As I had tried other devices with no luck, I decided to order this one, as she knew my dog, his size, and his barking.

      We are having the most amazing luck with this collar, and in a few short weeks, his barking has noticeably improved on the few occasions when he not wearing the collar. We will continue the training with the collar for several more months, but believe we have found the right match for our favorite pooch.

      You absolutely must fit the collar properly, as the wrong position and even being just a little bit loose will negate its effectiveness. If your dog barks when wearing the device, it has not been properly fitted.

      I join my trainer in recommending this collar, and I highly recommend Gun Dog Supply as a vendor. I was more than pleased at how quickly they shipped the device so I could begin using it right away.
      • The quality and effectiveness of the device, and the fact that my trainer with 40 years of national experience in training all breeds of dogs recommended it.
      • The excellent contact between Steve Snell and Gun Dog Supply as part of this transaction.
      • A novice user may need help fitting the collar properly to get maximum benefit. Check YouTube.

      I'm a skeptical consumer by nature, but I thought I'd give this collar a try out of desperation to stop the barking. I was shocked at how well it worked IMMEDIATELY! It corrected him a couple of times until he realized what was happening, but after that... he was great! I really liked how it still lets him bark a couple of times, but recorrects him if needed. I would highly recommend this product if you have a barking dog.

      Peace finally
      April 20, 2023
      I’ve purchased many bark collars that did not result in controlling bad barking behavior. I purchased three of these collars which were recommended by Steve the founder of this site. I am amazed at how well they work, from day one and the first 10min the dogs learnt to stop barking and now I rarely have to use them. Do yourself and your neighbors a favor and get these collars!
      • Easy to use and extremely effective

      Great Product Review by GDS
      February 16, 2023
      Knew when I needed a bark collar for our perpetual-barking-Pyrenees, that I'd go to GDS as my preferred store, simply for their detailed product reviews. Sure enough, I was able to select the collar best for my dog because of these reviews. Collar works great, and I learned more about how to use it from the GDS review than the actual instruction manual. Great job, and thank you very much! You don't get this level of detail from Cabela's.

      Still on the fence

      The collar has helped reduce the barking but it also hits him every time he shakes which I’m sure confuses him. I’m also surprised how hot it must be for a level one for him to yelp the way that he does. My hunting e collar is a garmin and I run him on a level 4 or 5 and he doesn’t yelp, but a subtle twitch of the ear.
      • Has helped with the barking
      • Stimulates when he isn

      Finally some peace
      December 15, 2022
      I purchased this no-bark collar for our 4 month-old corgi puppy who was perfect in every way…except for his non-stop barking, when not sleeping. When he was delivered by the ground transporter, the man truly looked frazzled from being confined in the car with the puppy for 2 full days. He had a splitting headache from the non-stop, high pitched barking. My heart went out to him! However, I was unprepared for what lay ahead. It was nothing for this puppy to bark for 4 hours straight! It was mind numbing, to say the least. A friend & trainer recommended your product to me. I ordered it immediately. After one full week of using this collar peace has returned to the household. It’s truly a miracle worker, thank you!
      • Easy to use, with 3 different levels to choose from.
      • I wish it came with a replacement collar.

      Working very well. We use them on our two one year old Schaunzer's when they bark at people when we are walking. Have solved the problem. Highly recommend! No harm done! Believe me!

      I bought the collar for my Dacshund because she really likes communicating with squirrels. She wore the collar and quickly ceased the behavior.

      Really helped my reactionary Aussie
      March 2, 2022
      I love this collar. I was afraid that it might cause her to become more reactionary. However, when she barks once and then gets corrected, she is fine. I am so happy we got this for her. I should have gotten it a long time ago.

      SO far so good
      February 16, 2022
      This collar has the progressive setting which is perfect for my dog. Has good battery life as well.

      I just wish they had a small light on it so you could easily tell if it was on or off.
      • Battery Life
      • Settings are varied enough to find the right one.
      • Gun Dog Supply is a top notch seller.
      • No light that indicates if the collar is on or off.
      Awesome NO BARK Collar

      Right out of the gate, this unit works great. Just charged it up. Read the manual and chose a mode.
      • user friendly. Battery life is awesome. Definitely like the progressive mode.
      • I may have cut the "EXTRA LONG" collar strap too short.....
