The third generation Bark Terminator 3 is an advanced bark control system with three modes of bark or howl detection plus the ability to select shock or no-shock with each mode. This allows you to tailor your training for any dog. When the collar detects a bark or howl, it generates an annoying "correction" which 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 dog's attention, but following corrections add shock (if enabled) and multiple pulses if the dog continues to bark or howl. As barking slows, the processor reduces frequency and intensity of the corrections. When there is no barking/howling for 30 seconds, the correction is reduced to its minimum. 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. Detection of a bark is relatively reliable due to internal digital processing. However any very loud sound with the same amplitude and duration of a normal bark can be misinterpreted and generate an unnecessary correction. This is confusing to the dog. Therefore when you first start using a BT-3 we recommend you avoid locations where there is a chance of loud sounds triggering the collar (areas such as automotive repair shops and construction zones). If your dog has not barked in a long time, the first bark or loud noise will not trigger a correction, preventing generation of an unnecessary correction to an event such as something falling and creating a loud noise. This feature is implemented in normal and anti-intruder modes, but not in howl-prevention mode. When used consistently, the BT-3 trains your dog to stop barking and be what he's supposed to be: a happy, well-trained companion.
