PRODUCT SAFETY AND HEALTH STATEMENT

It is NOT intended for use on people or on animals other than dogs.
Dogtra does not assume any liability for the improper use of the iQ
No Bark Collar.
2. Leaving the iQ No Bark Collar in the same position on a dog’s neck
for extended periods of time can cause skin irritation. To prevent this,
occasionally reposition the unit so the contact points are moved to a
different location on the dog’s neck. ALWAYS check your dog’s neck
for signs of skin irritation when using the iQ No Bark Collar.
3. A proper fit is necessary for the iQ No Bark Collar to work optimally.

associate playing with the electrical stimulation.
6. Closely monitor your dog’s activity and stimulation output while using
the iQ No Bark Collar. When removing the iQ No Bark Collar f rom
your dog’s neck, make sure your dog is not barking and in a calm or

Test mode
When first using the iQ No Bark Collar, it is recommended that you start
with the lowest level. If the dog continues to bark, gradually increase
the intensity level. Closely monitor your dog’s reaction to find the right
stimulation level.
LED battery life indicator (picture ②)
The LED indicator will flash for 1 second when the iQ No Bark Collar has
been turned on, and every 2 seconds af terwards. If your dog does not bark
for over 10 seconds, the LED indicator will turn off and the iQ No Bark
Collar will go into a sleep mode to conserve battery life. It will reactivate
when your dog barks and a vibration/correction needs to be made.
Operation modes
1. Non-stimulating Pager vibration mode
- Turn the intensity dial to P.
- When your dog barks, the iQ No Bark Collar will vibrate twice.
2. Stimulation modes 1-10
- Stimulation levels from 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest level and 10 being
-3-
the highest level.
- When the iQ No Bark collar is first activated by the dog’s bark, the
unit will give a warning non-stimulating vibration. If the dog continues
to bark, the unit will give a non-stimulating vibration followed by a
correction at the level it is set on.
* The iQ No Bark Collar has a preset delay of 15 seconds in-between
corrections. Once the unit activates, it WILL NOT activate again until
15 seconds has gone by (The unit will reset to the warning nonstimulating vibration af ter 17 seconds of a correction if the dog does not
bark.).
TESTING THE IQ NO BARK COLLAR

indicator will flash once, and af ter 2 seconds it will continue flashing
every 2 seconds.
- Activate the collar by making sounds directly into the mic. The unit
should now vibrate twice. Af ter waiting 15 seconds, repeat the test once
more to verif y that it is f ully f unctional.

- Using a coin, unscrew the battery cover
counterclockwise.
- Insert two batteries with the plus sides
facing out.
- Check to make sure that the rubber
gasket is in place, and screw in the
battery cover clockwise.
* ATTENTION
- When the batteries are placed incorrectly, the LED indicator light may
turn on, but the unit will not operate properly.
- The unit is working properly when the LED Battery life indicator blinks
once. When the LED Battery life indicator blinks twice consecutively, the
battery will need to be replaced.

PROPER FIT
A proper fit is necessary for the iQ
No Bark Collar to work optimally.
Both contact points must be in contact
with your dog’s skin at all times for a
consistent stimulation. A loose fitting
collar can cause the contact points to rub
against the skin and cause irritation.
TROUBLESHOOTING
1. When do I replace the batteries on my iQ No Bark Collar?
- If the unit is not activating or the LED indicator does not turn on, the
batteries may need to be replaced. Overall battery life will be dependent
on usage. With the iQ No Bark Collar activating around 10 times a day,
the battery will have an average life of about 2-weeks.
- To clean the iQ No Bark Collar, make sure the battery cover is closed
and fully sealed, and wipe down the unit with a damp cloth and some
alcohol. Make sure the unit is completely dry before use.
2. My dog is not reacting to the iQ No Bark Collar.
- Check the LED indicator light to see that the iQ No Bark Collar has
-5-
enough battery life.
- Tighten the collar strap around your dog’s neck if it is too loose and make
sure the contact points are held firmly against the dog’s skin.
- If your dog has a thick or long coat, you may need to trim the hair on
the dog’s neck, so that both contact points are touching the dog’s skin.
- The intensity level may be too low for your dog. Increase the stimulation,
starting from the lowest level, until the dog responds, usually by a neck
movement, head shaking, or looking over the shoulders. The response
may be very subtle.
3. My dog has skin irritation.
- This may be due to an improper fit or leaving the collar in the same
location for an extended period of time. If your dog exhibits signs of skin
irritation, consult with a veterinarian.
- Once the dog’s skin returns to a normal condition, continue to use the
collar and check your dog’s neck each time you use the unit.
