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.
I have the indoor two pack that was recommended by my local pet store, they explained that in the event that I was to want to return it for any reason I would have to go through “petsafe” and could not simply return it to my store because “petsafe” won’t allow them to handle returns of there product. This led me to believe that this was a reputable company, and it must work! Well I am still dealing with barking and whining and I have switched them, and used both to no avail. I also know that my pupper is not deaf because he responds to a number of different training sounds, (ie, clicker, whistle, and his name)
Hello Jess, thank you for taking a moment to review the Indoor Bark Control (2-Pack)! We hate to hear that this product is not working well for your furry family member and we can certainly understand that this must be frustrating.
Based on your description, ultrasonic tones may not be the best form of correction for your dog's individual temperament. We offer many other bark control products that utilize other forms of correction like spray or static stimulation which may be more effective for your dog. We would love to discuss these options with you further to make sure you have the best product for your household. Please feel free to reach out to PetSafe Customer Care directly for further assistance.
This device appears to be operational, but it does not affect my dog's barking at all. There is no sign from her that she even notices it is there.
Hi Tanya, we appreciate you taking a moment to review your Indoor Bark Control units.
We hate to hear that these do not seem to be effective with your dog. Based on your description, ultrasonic tones may not be the best form of correction for your girl’s individual temperament. You may find it helpful to know that we offer an array of different bark control products with other correction options like spray or static stimulation which may be a better fit for her. We can absolutely discuss these options with you to help you find the best product for your needs. Please reach out to us for further product assistance.
I have a mini schnauzer and when this is on he does not bark. In fact one time I forgot to turn it off and he would not come in the house
Great price for a great product
This didn’t even phase my dog. The light turns red so I assume it’s working but my dog clearly doesn’t care about the sound.
I bought this to help curb my dogs barking but it definitely does not work for her. Not sure if it’s emitting a sound or not but the light comes on and she does not seem to even notice.
We're sorry that the Indoor Ultrasonic Bark Control unit has not been effective at curbing your dogs' barking! If the unit seems to be working when tested, and your dogs are responding to it somewhat (the most typical sign is a perking up of the ears), it may be that ultrasonic is not a good fit for your dogs and another bark control method such as spray or static may work much better. We'd be glad to speak with you and help determine what method or product might be most effective for solving your barking problem. Please give us a call we'll be glad to assist you.
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.
