The third generation Bark Terminator 3 is a completely new and advanced Bark Control System with three different modes of bark or howl detection plus the ability to select Shock or No-Shock with each mode. This allows you to tailor your own custom training program for most any dog.
When the collar detects a bark or howl it generates an annoying "correction" which always consists of an audible tone and, if enabled, a low current shock. The dog learns that the annoyance goes away when the barking or howling stops.
The number and frequency of corrections progressively increases if the dog keeps barking or howling. The first correction is just a short tone to get the dogs attention, but following corrections add shock (if enabled) and multiple pulses if the dog continues to bark or howl.
Automatic Correction Reduction
As the dog's barking slows the processor automatically reduces the frequency and intensity of the corrections. When there is no barking/howling for 30 seconds, the correction is reduced to its minimum.
Panic Recovery Period
If the dog happens to panic and bark or howl uncontrollably for more than 15 seconds, the processor disables all corrections for a 20 second recovery period to let the dog calm down.
Bark vs. Noise
Detection of a bark is relatively reliable in the BT-3 due to the internal digital processing. However any very loud sound that has the same amplitude envelope and duration of a normal dog bark can be missinterpreted as a bark and generate an unnecessary correction. This is confusing to the dog. Therefore when you first start using a BT3 we recommend you avoid locations where there is a chance of loud sounds triggering the collar. This includes areas such as automotive repair shops, and construction zones.
The No-Bark Reward
If your dog has not barked in a long time, the first bark or loud noise will nottrigger a correction. This feature prevents generation of an unnecessary correction to a random event such as something falling and creating a loud noise. This feature is implemented in the Normal and Anti-Intruder modes, but not the Howl-Prevention mode.
Continuous Status Indicators
During normal operation, the BATT and SHOCK lights will flash in synchronization with every tone and shock correction respectively. This may be used to visually observe the corrections if you cannot hear the tone.
What You Achieve Is A Well-Behaved Dog That Only Barks When It's Supposed To!
When used consistently, the Bark Terminator 3 quickly trains your dog to stop barking and be what he's supposed to be - a happy, well-trained companion.
