shipment. It is necessary, however, to recharge the

SELECTING ON-OFF & INTENSITY
LEVELS.
NOTICE :
‐ When first using the "Yapper Stopper", it is
recommended that you start with the lowest level.
If the dog continues to bark, gradually increase the
intensity level.
‐ The dial on the collar is used to turn the “No Bark
Collar” on and off and for selecting the intensity
level.
‐ To turn off the “No Bark Collar”, position as shown
above.
‐ Once the unit activates, it will go into the delay
mode for 15 seconds before activating again. The
reason the unit does this, is to give ample time for
the dog to process the correction before the unit
activates the next time it barks.
CONTACT POINTS
‐ The contact points must always be in contact with the
skin for the unit to function properly.

thumbnail, the stimulation intensity increases. The
stimulation decreases when turned counterclockwise.

FITTING THE COLLAR
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
‐ Tighten the collar around the dog’s neck so that the
points are in contact with the dog’s skin.
‐ To prevent skin irritation, the collar should not be
worn more than eight hours at a time.
‐ If the collar is too loose, the dog will not receive
correction when it barks.
‐ It is best to move the location of the contact points
every few hours. To do this, take the collar off and
then put it back on so that the contact points are in a
different location on the neck.
‐ Check the dog’s neck daily for possible irritation
caused by the contact points rubbing against the skin.
‐ Do not leave the collar on for more than eight hours a
day.
IMPORTANT : Remove any other collars from your dog
when it is wearing the No Bark Collar.
A metal collar or a metal buckle that rubs against the No
Bark Collar bark sensor may inadvertently activate the unit.
‐ If skin irritation is found, wash the area and rinse with
hydrogen peroxide. Apply an antibiotic ointment.
Temporarily discontinue using the collar until the skin
has healed.
‐ Use the right length contact points. The collar comes
installed with contact points that are best for a
majority of dogs.
‐ Proper collar strap tightness is extremely important. If
the collar is too loose, it will not function properly
and it may rub as the dog moves, causing irritation.
MAINTENANCE
‐ Periodically wash the “No Bark Collar” with alcohol or
detergent. Before washing, make sure that the battery
cap is tightened.
TROUBLESHOOTING
‐ Your “No Bark Collar” is a valuable training aid when
used correctly. Please read the information on operating
the No Bark Collar before putting it on your dog.
