About PetSafe Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark 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. With its unique birdhouse disguise, your visitors and neighbors will never know what you are using it for.
About Static Collars
This bark control collar requires no programming and includes progressive correction. If your dog continues to bark, the static correction automatically increases to the next level until he stops. It is easy to use and dogs typically stop barking within the first few day after wearing the collar.

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.
My problem stemmed from our neighbors, who would go on vacation every summer for at least 2 weeks. Their 2 beagles had the run of the place while they were gone.(They could go in and out of the house through a doggie door) Of course, they had someone come by to feed them every day, but because they were unsupervised the rest of the time, they would sleep through the heat of the day and then wake up at night to bark insanely--not for just a little while...not for just an hour...it would start around 10 pm and continue till 6am. Scolding them made it worse.
This year, after the first night, I was determined to solve this problem (without taking sinister measures, which I had fantasized about), so after some research I decided to try this product and it is WORKING! Every so often, I will hear them bark once or twice, but that's it. I am so pleased!
I would recommend following the directions closely--ie...don't hang it higher than 5 ft.; no obstructions; play with sensitivity controls, etc.
If you are contemplating trying this bark controller, I would say "go for it and see what happens".
We set the timer to kick in at a particular time of the evening, so we were not trying to control the dogs 24/7. This really did the trick. It does emit an mildly audible buzz in response to the dog, which I think is good. I cannot hear the audible buzz from inside my house, but I think the buzz annoyed the uncaring neighbor/dog owner, as he likes to sit at the back door to watch TV, and the dog barks, so he now brings the dog in when it starts its evening seranade/and the device responds. Life is good!
This has created a very peaceful environment. Thank you
