SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
To prevent skin irritation, the collar should not
be worn more than 8-hours at a time.
Also, 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.
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.
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.

Contact Points
Collar Strap Adjust
uses surgical stainless steel contact
points to protect the dog’s skin.
The length of the contact points should be wellfitted so that the contact points are held firmly
against the dog’s skin.
IMPORTANT : Avoid touching the Contact
points unless the No Bark Collar is completely
discharged, or you may feel the electrical
stimulation yourself.
Plastic Dummy Contact Points
If your dog is trained enough, you can replace the
Contact Points with the Plastic Contact Points
included in the package. By doing so, it will allow
you to keep the collar on your dog for a longer
period of time with less irritation on the skin. You
may also use the Pager mode as a useful tool in
correcting your dog without the stimulation,
however, only leave the collar on for 8-hours at a
time if the stainless steel contact points are still
being utilized.
12
The collar strap of the dogtra YS300 can be
adjusted 3 steps as shown in the diagram above.
To adjust the collar strap, first unscrew the
contact points and put screws in desired holes,
then tighten the contact points as shown below.

TESTING
TESTING YOUR NO BARK COLLAR
TESTING
2. Test by scratching the rough surface of the test
tool on the collar (as shown in the diagram) using
a coin or a hard metal object. The collar will emit
a vibration three times. Repeat the same process
if you want to test again.
When on the test mode, the No Bark Collar
emits a vibration without emitting stimulation
at the same time.
When on the test mode, the sensor may be
sensitive enough that the No Bark Collar can
activate easily by a small sound or tap.
1. Turn the dogtra YS300 on by turning the ONOFF & Intensity Dial and select the test mode (T)
so that the arrow on the dial is aligned with the
letter “ T”.
The LED indicator light will flash 1 second to
indicate that it is on, after 2 seconds it will flash
every 2 seconds. If the dog does not bark over 10
seconds, it will turn to the Sleep mode to save
battery life and the LED will turn off.

TROUBLESHOOTING
TROUBLESHOOTING
My dog keeps barking. Is the No Bark Collar
working properly?
Check and see that dogtra No Bark Collar is
turned on.
Tighten the collar strap and make sure the
contact points are held firmly against the
dog’s skin.
Recharge the battery if it is discharged.
If the collar is too loose, electrical contact will
be inconsistent and your corrections will be
inconsistent also.
MAINTENANCE
Periodically wash the No Bark Collar with
alcohol or detergent. Dry thoroughly after
washing.
18
Increase the electric stimulation levels.
- We advise you to start with the lowest level
when first using the “
”.
- The dog can be startled at the electrical
correction for the first time.
- If you consider the intensity of stimulation
too light, increase the level gradually.
- In case of stubborn or aggressive dogs, you
can increase the intensity level suddenly,
and then give a low level back.
- You have to be very careful in deciding the
intensity level.
The electrical contact can be inconsistent or
it can give rise to negative influences on
dogs, if you select the wrong intensity level.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. How long does it take to fully recharge the
batteries and how long do the batteries last for
a recharge?
uses Lithium Polymer Batteries,
which provide a rapid charge.
It takes 2~3 hours to recharge the batteries if the
batteries are fully discharged.
The LED indicator light stays on red while the
battery is being charged, and the light will
change into a green color and stay on without
blinking when the battery is completely charged.
It may vary from the frequency of uses, but the
batteries should last for about 2 weeks.
2. How tight should the No Bark Collar be
around my dog’s neck?
The contact points must have direct contact
with your dog’s skin.
Adjust the contact points so that they are held
firmly against the dog’s skin.
Check the fit to prevent excessive pressure by
being able to insert one or two fingers between
the contact points and your dog’s skin.
- If the collar is too loose, it can move around
the dog’s neck or the stimulation will not be
consistent, whereas it may be difficult for
your dog to breath if the collar is too tight.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Mark the desired length of the collar with a pen
for next uses.
If after finding the desired length of collar you
have an excess of collar strap, it is okay to trim
off the leftover part with a pair of scissors.
However, be sure to leave extra length, if
necessary, to accommodate the future growth
of the dog.
3. My dog seems to be startled at the static
correction. Will the stimulation harm my dog?
Dogtra No Bark Collar is not intended for the
punishment but for the reinforcement of
behavior modification of dogs.
But if your dog is startled when first using the
dogtra No Bark Collar, remove the collar until
your dog is settled. You may want to turn the
collar off, and put the collar back on him for a
day or so, until he is comfortable. Attempt the
collar again at a lower level when you see that
your dog is more accustomed.
4. How do I get it repaired and get information
about dogtra No Bark Collar?
Most repairs can be completed within 48 hours
after we receive your unit, as long as all needed
parts are in stock. Some repairs, however, will
require additional work time.
