Petsafe Outdoor Bark Control Deterrent

Your dog loves your yard. She enjoys playing fetch, chasing the squirrels back into the trees, and racing her shadow to and from your home. Yet, she barks at everything outside and it is driving you crazy. And, when she starts barking, it gets all the neighbors’ dog’s barking. Thus, the endless barking cycle begins. You and everyone in the neighborhood are losing sleep from the pets’ conversations all night long. You need a bark control solution, and the Outdoor Bark Control is just the one for you!

How it works:

When a dog barks within the 50-foot range of the Outdoor Bark Control Deterrent, an internal microphone picks up the sound and activates the unit. It emits an ultrasonic sound. Most humans will not be able to hear this tone, but it can be easily heard by dogs. Startled by the high-pitched sound, which is safe and effective for dogs of all sizes and breeds, the dogs barking will be deterred. Dogs will soon associate their barking with the unpleasant tone, and will remain quiet to avoid the sound. When the dog stops barking, the ultrasonic sound also stops.

The Outdoor Bark Control has three range levels to choose from, which indicate what distance the barking will activate the unit. The test mode will ensure the microphone and speaker is working. Low Range will protect up to 15 feet, and Medium Range will double that measurement to 30 feet. The Range will maximize the unit to 50 feet. You can use the device to deter your barking dog or your neighbor’s dog. You can also train puppies not to bark or deter barking on camping trips. With its unique birdhouse disguise, your visitors and neighbors will never know what you are using it for.

*Please note: This product might not work on 10% of dogs, specifically dogs who's ears may be covered or down facing. The sound may not reach their ears enough to function properly. These dogs may benefit more from a bark collar*

Product Features:

• Up to a 50 feet range keeps all dogs within that range quiet.
• A durable and weatherproof design gives you satisfaction in knowing your barking problem will be solved in any weather.
• A two-color good/low battery indicator lets you know when your deterrent needs a new battery.
• Uses 9v alkaline battery (not included).

Didn't stop any of the neighbor's dogs from barking.
The other neighbor has a Retriever and some other dog I don't know (a small one), and it doesn't seem to work as well on them, maybe 25% effective.

It stopped the barking for the first two days, but since then it did not seem to have any effect on the dog.

We've been bothered by a neighbor's dog that comes out periodically day and night and just barks for 10 to 30 minutes -- usually facing our house. We got this product, found a spot in the trees facing the dog, and set it up. It's really worked as advertised. The dog starting barking, as usual, but then seemed to bark fewer times, and with less noise. As three weeks have passed, we hear the dog give one or two "test" yelps (more than barks) presumably to see if it still gets "zapped' by the machine. Since it does, it stops barking immediately. No more gritting teeth (for us) for 10 to 30 minutes, as before. So, I'm delighted with this and wholeheartedly recommend it.

A new family moved in next door. They brought with them a german shepard looking dog that they keep in the back yard. This dog barks non-stop all day long, and it's a very deep and violent bark. It boggles the mind how these people next door can be so oblivious to the barking. We couldn't enjoy the inside of our own home due to the barking. Something had to be done immediately. I read the reviews on here which seem to have mixed results. I didn't care if it was going to be a waste of money or not because I had to try something. I bought it and hung it on a tree next to our wooden privacy fence. The instuctions say not to hang it higher than 5ft but we had no choice but to hang it higher. It's hanging on the tree about 7-8ft high and it's pointed down toward the middle of their yard. IT IMMEDIATELY WORKED. We were amazed. It barked once and I guess it heard the noise and it didn't bark for 2 days after that. After about the 3rd day it would give a test bark and then it would quit. We thought it was so funny. Finally relief. However, after 2 weeks the dog started on a rampage of barking non-stop again. We were thinking to ourselves that the dog must be used to it. But after taking it down, we noticed the 9 Volt battery was already dead. I guess we just have to replace the battery every two weeks, but we will. I don't think the 9 Volt lasts very long in the cold.

But, to sum it up, it worked. Also, the dog looks fairly young so I'm sure it's hearing is acute, meaning that it's getting blasted when it barks. HAHA, we win.

Update on 02-27-09 - The dog next door seems to have adjusted to this bark deterrent, and now barks when he wants to, although he doesn't bark non-stop like he once did before we hung this device in our tree. So it worked for a while and trained the dog a little I guess.

Why do the rudest people have the worst dogs? Our neighbors parade a series of 100-pound dogs through their yard, all of which bark constantly and menace us from the fence if we're outside. We tried polite requests, even the police, but the barking continued from first light to ten p.m. Yet,when this little birdie (house) "sings," it's all we need. It doesn't train these big dogs, but it does deter them. If the battery is dead,the dogs resume barking, but when operational, the dogs stop barking instantly, test it a little, then retreat as far as they can. Even small dogs visiting this family are utterly silent; they yap once or twice then quit. The big ones now scratch the door to be readmitted instead of barking for an hour while their loving owners ignore them. The owners don't like the dogs wrecking the door, so in they go! Hilarious, really, making the dogs their problem again instead of mine! I'm pretty sure these people have no clue about why their dogs have stopped barking in the yard. I do. No one else in my family can sense this device, but I can. It's a dull, unpleasant earache, not painful, but I am motivated to move away! While this device did well outside in all weathers for 18 months, the interior connections are starting to fail because of the damp and weather. I'll protect the next one I buy with a little cover. I love having my quiet yard again instead of useless confrontations with these nasty people over their nasty dogs.

We've had this about a week and it is working! Our 10 year old Great Pyrenees is quite a barker, and I've never been able to train it out of her. I love this product, but PLEASE BEWARE! I didn't realize the vacuum cleaner was setting it off and my poor dog was suffering needlessly. Also, clapping and other loud noises, even loud voices can set it off. I had it sitting on the kitchen table, and when we set something on the table it went off.

I wish I had found this product 10 years ago. She's even stopped barking at the mailman. But please make sure you pay attention to what else could set off the controller (it has a red light indicator to let you know) as it really does seem to hurt a dog's ears.

We have two mid-to-large dogs (ridge hound, and black lab mix). The ridge hound is trained, so adding the bark control was no problem. He reacted as expected - only to test to see if the device is still around from time to time. However, the black lab mix is stubborn and will bark every once in a while directly at the device to show dominance. We have a neighbor with a very bark-happy beagle. When we directed the device toward their back yard (approximately 200 feet away - or two lots) - the reaction was immediate, and the beagle stopped barking right away. Per the previous reviews, it is probable that this device may not have the expected outcome for small dogs. A hypothesis would be that 1) small dog pitch does not activate control, or 2) small dog tends to be either stubborn of lacks reasoning with when affected by the control.

Another observation in studying this product is that after about 1 weeks worth of use, there has been a significant decline in Grackles (black birds) in the garden. There may not be a correlation, but we will continue to monitor and report.

So, in short, this is not the end-all product, and gets 4 stars. However, if you are looking for a solution to address mid-size and larger dogs, then this product exceeds expectations. Remember, be kind to animals. Taper the use of this product of the course of a few days. Then, reintroduce this product as necessary to maintain awareness of the control with the dog.
