When the Outdoor Bark Control is within range of a barking dog, an internal microphone picks up the sound and the unit is automatically activated. The PetSafe® Outdoor Bark Control emits an ultrasonic sound. The ultrasonic sound can be heard by dogs but is silent to humans. Startled by the high-pitched sound that is safe and effective, the dog should stop barking, as it will associate its bark with this unpleasant noise. When the dog stops barking the ultrasonic sound also stops. The PetSafe® Outdoor Bark Control has 3 range levels and a test mode. It is effective up to 15 metres.
Having looked at the reviews we decided to buy this product,but it has been a waste of money because we wanted it to put an end to our neighbours two d ogs barking.It will not work through a fence.Now how many neighbours do not have a fence between their boundaries.Our fence is six foot so we put the barking device just above the fence on our house wall still the dogs barked.We decided to fix something to the box so it pointed down towards where the dogs bark,But that hasn,t worked eigher also the battery only lasts two months.It is a 9v square battery which isnt cheap.So we do not recommend you buy this product if you want it to stop your neighbours barking dog or dogs which in our case is dogs.!!!!
Before the purchase of the outdoor bark control we were using a bark collar on the dog which was effective but the dog (GSD) chewed up the collar and damaged the unit. After that we thought of purchasing a bark control unit that can be away from the dog, so we bought one from Amazon. We are disappointed that the unit is not as effective and we are considering other options that will stop the bark.
We have two dogs and it is working well for us. I had read a lot of reviews before buying and thought it will be a 50/50 chance to which I took. Thought it was worth the gamble. Real happy with the result.
