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.
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.
> PetSafe Response: Hello Anna, thank you for your comments on our Outdoor Bark Control. It's great to learn that the ultrasonic tone is working so well for your two dogs. We're pleased you're happy with the results :)
We live on the 4th floor, opposite neighbours on ground floor have a large dog which starts barking and hauling every day around 6 AM, for hours and hours, driving us crazy! The distance between our apartment and the house is around 30 meters. I put the bark control on the balcony, facing the dog. The first day there was no difference, but 3 days later the dog reduced it's barking with around 90 %, We can sleep again! The PBC19 is not cheap but worth every euro!
> PetSafe Response, Hello Edgar, thanks for reviewing our Outdoor Bark Control. We're so glad to hear that the neighbour's dog has reduced his barking with the help of our ultrasonic dog product so quickly, and that you are getting a good night's sleep again! We wish you many more restful nights! Zzzzzzz
