When the PetSafe® Indoor Bark Control is within range of a barking dog, an internal microphone picks up the sound. The unit automatically emits an ultrasonic tone that can be heard by dogs but is silent to most humans. Startled by the high-pitched tone, the dog should stop barking. In time it will associate its bark with this unpleasant noise. When the dog stops barking, the ultrasonic tone also stops. It is effective up to 8 metres.
Bought this product to control our 3 dogs from barking when people walk past our house, none of the dogs even flinched when we turned the product on. Worst $110 I've ever spent .
> PetSafe Response: Hi Michael, thank you for taking the time to leave your review for the Indoor Bark Control. We are sorry to hear this has not worked with your dogs. Ultrasonic correction will work well for the most part however, there are factors such as temperament and hearing ability that will determine how effective it will be. As we can understanding how frustrating this experience has been for you we do want to help and provide a solution for you. One of our Customer Care Specialists will be in contact with you in regards to our No Bark Promise and finding a more effective product which would suit your situation. Kind regards, PetSafe.
The indoor unit only worked the first day. I also have the outdoor unit and that worked well. So I placed the second indoor unit in the same room. They still barked over it. So I took the indoor unit inside and that seems to work better, but on the highest setting. Can you advise if the highest setting increases the volume of the sound or does it just increase the distance of detection? Thanks

Batteries didn’t last. Replaced them twice within 3 weeks.
Dogs didn’t even flinch so not sure they even work
>PetSafe© Response: Hi Anna, we greatly appreciate your feedback. The batteries for this product should last more than what you have experienced. One of our Customer Care Specialists will be in contact with you shortly and provide trouble shooting assistance. Kind regards, PetSafe©.
These were a total waste of money. The batteries lasted less than a week, so I replaced them only for them to last less than a week also.
My dogs didn’t even flinch when he barked so not even sure if the devices worked.
Wish I’d read the reviews before spending lots of money
>PetSafe© Response: Hi Anna, we greatly appreciate your feedback and this will be passed on to our design team. One of our Customer Care Specialists will be in contact with you shortly to discuss some options for you. Kind regards, PetSafe©.
Batteries don't last long and it doesn't stop my dog from barking.
> PetSafe Response: Hi Elizabeth, we are so sorry to hear of the troubles you've had with our Indoor Bark Control. Depending on use, the batteries should last approximately 2 months. However, initially the battery life may be less, due to frequent activations when first in use. It may take some time for your dog to associate that tone with their barking though. Most customers will notice a significant decrease in barking within 2 weeks of use. However, some dogs may be less sensitive to ultrasonic correction. We do have alternate types of bark control, including vibration, spray, and static. If you would like to give us a call, we would be happy to see what we can do to get the right fit for your and your dog.
Product did work but I was very disappointed in the battery life. I stopped using it as I was having to replace the battery everyday
> PetSafe Response: Hello Kristy, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. A member of our Customer Care team will contact you directly to help troubleshoot the battery life issues you've been experiencing with this product. Thanks again.
Love this product, really works, and not invasive for the dog i.e no collar, no electric shocks etc. Only he hears it if he barks. I did a couple of checks (1 on downstairs and 1 upstairs), watched him on iPad video whilst was I out, not a sound!
> PetSafe Response: Hi Peter, thanks for sharing your experience with us! The ultrasonic bark control really does make such a difference and helps to reduce your dog's barking. Anything else you need, just let us know.
