Review of the SportDog – SBC-6 NoBark Collar
The use of a bark collar doesn’t have to be difficult or require an excessive amount of programming and set-up. The SportDog NoBark SBC-6 is among the easiest bark collar to use; simply strap it on your dog and go!
SportDog SBC-6 Product Description
The SportDog NoBark SBC-6 collar is similar to the SBC-10R collar, but simpler in design. Instead of three operational modes, only progressive correction is used. There are 6 static correction levels. During each barking episode the level of correction is increased until the barking ceases. If no new barks are detected within 30 seconds, the stimulation level returns to 0. Each time correction is administered, a tone also sounds.
The SportDog NoBark SBC-6 collar uses a vibration sensor probe to detect barking. No correction will be administered unless vocal cord vibrations are detected by the collar’s receiver. An additional safety feature ensures your dog is not overcorrected by disabling static stimulation if more than 15 barks in a 50 second time frame are emitted.
What are the Advantages of SportDog SBC-6?
The SportDog NoBark SBC-6 collar is perfect for the dog owner who does not have experience with static stimulation collars. No programming is required, and the collar does the work for you by determining the appropriate stimulation level for your pet. The vibration sensor probe is an important safety feature that ensures your dog is not unfairly corrected due to the sound of another dog’s bark. Additionally, dogs that are barking out of distress or due to an emergency will never be overcorrected thanks to the disabling of corrections when more than 15 barks are detected in a 50 second time frame.
What are the Limitations of SportDog SBC-6?
The only limitation to this product is that stubborn dogs who routinely require the highest level of correction might bark as many as six times before receiving the appropriate level of stimulation.
Who Can Benefit Most from SportDog SBC-6?
Dog owners who are experiencing nuisance barking with their dog and would like a simple solution to the problem will benefit most from this product.
Who Can Benefit Least from SportDog SBC-6?
Owners of dogs that are less than 8 lbs will not find this product useful. Additionally, this product might not be appropriate for especially stubborn dogs.
Which Products in the SportDog line are Similar?
SportDog also manufactures the SBC-10R Rechargable Bark Collar, which has two additional operational modes and 4 more levels of stimulation.
Ultimately, if you are searching for a product that is easy to use and offers humane correction for your dog when he or she occasionally engages in nuisance barking, this product is a great choice.
