Please note: Before you put the CLIX No-Bark Collar on, take off all other dog collars for the duration of the training session.
Place the CLIX No-Bark Collar onto your dog and turn it on to vibration or sonic mode. Every time your dog barks, he will hear or feel a safe, effective correction that reminds him not to bark. Most dogs will understand quickly that the CLIX No-Bark Collar is disrupting their urge to bark and will relax and stop barking. If he continues barking, try to calm him to teach him he needs to be quiet when he feels the correction (of either sonic sounds or vibration) taking place. You should notice a reduction in your dog's barking within the first couple of days of wearing the CLIX No-Bark Collar. Remain consistent and place the CLIX No-Bark Collar on your dog in every situation that you expect him to be quiet. If your dog is not wearing the collar, he may resume barking and his learning will suffer a setback.
Place the collar on your dog's neck. Make sure the plastic is securely placed under the chin. It needs to be as snug as possible, but leaving enough room for one or two fingers. Do not turn the unit on for 10 minutes or your dog may become collar smart. Remove ALL other collars and tags.
Move the ON/OFF switch to Vibration. Later on as your dog trains, you can switch from vibration to sound.
The Sensitivity Switch gives you 3 levels of training, L, M and H. The L switch is for lower sensitivity. Move to M or H for more sensitivity as needed.
Begin training on L for Low Sensitivity. As your dog becomes more trained, you can slowly move to H and eventually wean your dog off the collar completely.
The action of your dog barking will now activate the collar. Turn the switch to OFF when not in use to save battery life.
Training Your Pet
Keep in mind, this is a training collar. When you see your pet react positively to the collar, praise him and give him one of his favorite treats. Dogs learn through positive reinforcement, so do this often. Be patient, follow the directions and soon your dog will be trained and you will have quiet in your home once again.
The collar uses 3 LR44 batteries to function.
