|Using your Deluxe Little Dog Bark Control|
Fitting the Collar
NOTE: The proper fit and placement of your Bark Control Collar is important for effective operation. The Contact Points must have direct contact with your dog's skin on the underside of his neck.
For the comfort, safety, and effectiveness of this product, please ensure you check the fit of your pet's collar frequently. The above guide describes proper collar fitting. As with any collar, if any skin irritation is observed, discontinue the use of this collar for a few days. If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian.
Installing the Battery
Replacing the Battery
To insert the battery, align the triangles on the Battery and the Bark Control Collar. Use a coin to turn the battery clockwise until the arrows line up with the "ON" position.
To remove the battery, turn the battery counterclockwise using a coin. DO NOT attempt to cut into or pry open the battery.
NOTE: DO NOT install the battery or place the collar onto your dog with the battery in the "ON" position.

What to Expect During Use of the Deluxe Little Dog Bark Control Collar
Place the Bark Control Collar properly on your dog and wait nearby until he barks. Most dogs will understand very quickly that the Bark Control Collar is disrupting their urge to bark and will relax and stop barking. Because the static correction from the collar 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-correction-bark-correction 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 any more static corrections. The small group of dogs that have this reaction will only have it the first time they wear the collar.
You should notice a reduction in your dog's barking within the first couple of days that he wears the collar. At this point, it is important to remember the learning process is still not complete. Dogs will "test" this new learning experience and will increase their attempts to bark. This usually occurs during the second week a dog wears the collar. If this does occur, remain consistent and do not alter your use of the collar. For effective training, you must place the collar on your dog's neck every time you do not want him to bark. If your dog is not wearing the collar, he may resume barking and his learning would suffer a setback.

How your Deluxe Little Dog Bark Control Works
Second, the collar has a Temperament Learning System, that contains software which tracks the number of needed corrections to substantially reduce (and in most cases eliminate) the number of nuisance barks. This system has ten levels of static correction. It begins with low-level corrections; however, if excessive barking continues, the correction intensity will increase with each successive bark until the barking stops. Once the dog has learned to reduce the barking, the initial warning corrections are reduced. If your dog does not bark within 30 seconds, the collar resets itself. A built-in safety feature will also automatically shut the collar off for three minutes should your dog bark more than fifteen times in any one minute, twenty second period.
TIP: Remove the collar before playing with your dog. Since activity may cause your dog to bark, leaving the collar on could cause your dog to associate play with the static correction.
NOTE: Never leave the collar on for more than twelve consecutive hours.
