The PetSafe® Ultrasonic Bark Control effectively deters barking when it is worn. When the microphone picks up the sound of your dog's bark, the unit emits an ultrasonic tone that can be heard by your dog, but is silent to most humans. Startled by the high-pitched tone, the dog should stop barking, as it will associate its bark with this unpleasant noise.
We have one dog and a puppy. The older one gets very vocal when someone arrives at the door or during play with the annoying puppy.
Previously tried a citronella collar but that actually made her sick.
So I purchased this one in the hope it would assist in training.
It was not left on the dog, as she doesn't bark all the time. It was used in conjunction with the reward based training we are doing with her and not the sole deterrent.
It seemed to have an effect for the first few weeks and her barking would cease after the first woof. Did absolutely nothing for the puppy, but she wasn't my target audience really so I was focused on the older dag more.
Purchased about 17th Aug and by 17th Oct it has absolutely no effect on the dog at all. Batteries are fine.
Conveniently out of guarantee time.
Would not purchase or recommend.
