Featured Advice from Our Experts
One of the main reasons dogs are given up to shelters every year is due
to excessive barking. Barking is a normal canine behavior, as natural
as humans speaking...
|If your neighbor's dog is driving you bonkers with his barking, help is here! |
Our ultrasonic outdoor bark control unit looks like any ordinary birdhouse that can hang in a tree, on a fence post or anywhere outside. It detects barking from up to 50 feet away and has 4 range settings. Whenever your dog - or your neighbor's dog - barks, he will hear a safe, high-pitched sound (inaudible to humans) that will cue him to stop his annoying habit.
Note: Training sound may be heard by the human ear.

Bought this about a year ago, and have used it with several dogs, some learn faster than others. Had only one dog that I was watching for a short time who didn't seem to get the point. All in all, it works great.
"Doesn't work at all"
We bought this with the hopes it would stop our irresponsible neighbor's Sheltie from barking but it did nothing. We placed it various spots, changed out the batteries several times and nothing. I'm a little surprised at all of the glowing reviews considering everywhere else it gets horrible ones.
"Worked for a short time"
The box worked for about two weeks then it was like the dogs just got used to it or something. I changed out the battery just to see if that was the problem, but was still not effective. But those 2 weeks it did work it was great because it kept my dogs from barking at people walking down the street, or my neighbors screaming children, or just anything outside that would make them bark. It even kept my neighbors dogs from barking which was the biggest relief because they keep them outside and they bark at everything plus bark and howl all through the night! So, I was very disappointed when it quit being effective.
"Anti Bark Control for Pyrs"
Awesome boxes. I have 2 of them in my yard and it has trained my Pyr puppy to not bark too much outside. Works great for those with neighbourhood dogs who bark at you too. Takes a 9 volt battery which lasts about 2 weeks. Weatherproof also. Have had them for over 4 years and still works great.
piece of mind!
"Neighbor's Dogs Quiet Now!"
Neighbors leave their dogs outside all day when they go to work. Dogs bark all day long from boredom and had been doing it for years. I work from home so trying to phone people with dogs barking was no good. After turning on the Bark Control the neighbor's dogs have been quiet. Works great and the neighbors have no idea it's being used!
"Back yard peace and quiet"
This has made my yard a peaceful enjoyable place to sit. I have a border collie mix that knows what every squirrel, ant, bird is doing in the entire neighborhood. He barks at everything - the neighbors dogs, hawkes, squirrels, etc. This stopped him from barking and I had spent 9 months trying positive reinforcement to be quiet. Now he does not bark. On the few times, he forgets, I say quiet and he knows I will turn on the birdhouse and is quiet. I am enjoying the yard again and so are both of my neighbors. Thank you.
"DID NOT WORK"
THIS DID NOT WORK FOR OUR DOGS. IT DID NOT PHASE THEM ONE BIT.
"waste of money"
My dogs bark when someone comes on our property (UPS, mail, trash pick up, etc) and I work overnights and sleep during the day, so bought this thinking it would help to keep the dogs hushed so they don't wake me up. The dogs don't even acknowledge it at all, it doesn't do anything to curtail their barking at the delivery people, it does not differentiate between a bark and any other loud noise...I see the red light flicker when the the poor dogs go thru their dog door and the magnetic flap makes a noise, it goes off when I turn on the vacuum, and when I open or shut the door! The worst part of all is that I can also hear it and it's a horrifying sound that I can even feel in my teeth and makes my ear drums feel like they're going to bleed (though admittedly my fiance can't hear it)! Total waste of money in all regards.
"Keeps them quiet"
My own dogs have needed a reminder that they shouldn't bark through the fence, and the PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control is a good product for doing that. It's adjustable and easy to use. And the birdhouse design is just plain cute. When my parents were tormented by a new neighbor's constant barker, the bark control device helped restore sanity (and it probably saved the neighbors a citation from animal control). These make great gifts, too.
