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.
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

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.
