Doesn't Work11/16/16

Have three dogs of varying ages, 5 months, 7 months and 8 years. During barking sprees, didn't phase animals at all. Don't waste your money. Fortunately there is a good return policy.



​PETSAFE RESPONSE:

We're terribly sorry to hear that the Ultrasonic Outdoor Bark Control unit is not having an effect on your dogs! If the unit is working when tested, please ensure that the unit is not placed more than 5' above ground level and is within line of sight of the area where nuisance barking has become a problem. If the unit is not working when tested, ensure that fresh batteries are used and that new and old batteries, or different types of batteries, are not mixed together.

If the unit continues to have no effect on your dogs' barking and you'd like assistance in getting it working correctly, please give us a call at the number 1-866-738-4379 and we'll be more than happy to assist you.

Product seems to function fine. It is making the noise. It sent our cats running when installing the batteries. The red light comes on when we test it and one of my sons can hear that frequency. The red light will come on and make the noise when a jet goes over or when you tap the unit against the post.

However, it has not come on once when the neighbors little dog barks endlessly from 10-15 feet away with no obstacles.

I was hoping that this would respond to barking, but I guess that is not how it works. If you gave a remote control with it I would gladly activate it myself, but it is not designed for that either.

The good news is FedEx jets do leave the area each time they come over and it goes off but we really were hoping that it worked on dogs.

PETSAFE RESPONSE

Thank you for providing your feedback, Todd. We are sorry to hear that you have had a bad experience with your Elite Outdoor Bark Control PBC00-12788. Please know that as this unit is designed to pick up the sound of an average dog's bark, and some higher pitched barks and whines may not be detected. This range is to help avoid unintended activations by sounds other than a dog’s barking. However, it is possible that the placement of this unit is impacting how the sound travels to the device. We recommend placing your Elite Outdoor Bark Control unit at a height of no more than 5 feet and should be free of any large obstacles. If you feel your Elite Outdoor Bark Control isn't working as it should, we would be happy to replace the unit under the warranty. Please give us a call at 1-800-732-2677 at your convenience for troubleshooting and warranty information. Our office hours are Monday through Friday 8 A.M. – 8 P.M. EST and Saturdays 9 A.M. – 5 P.M. EST.

At first, our dog was shaking all over when he first heard the "sound" emitted by the birdhouse. He ran back into the house and then refused to go out to the bathroom until it was dark outside or he could not hold it any longer. Now, 3-4 weeks later, he is still hesitant sometimes to go outside; at other times he goes right out. He does know where the irritating sound is coming from as he sneaks up on the unit from time to time to check it out. We are happy with this product and are expecting an invitation to dinner from our grateful neighbors soon!

We were pretty sure this was going to be the first trial and error step trying to get our neighbor's dog to stop barking loudly, habitually, frenetically and with zero help or concern from the owner. Cannot believe it. It was effective, dramatically so, almost instantly. And amazing to watch the dog process through it....he barked, stopped....looked confused....tried it again, stopped.....then tried barking softer, stopped. And then just sort of gave up and walked around peacefully. He was not in distress, (which was important to us) just looked like he decided it wasn't worth it anymore. We could not be more thankful and impressed. Highly recommend!!!

We put this out in our backyard with our two dogs while we went swimming yesterday. Typically they bark at any noise in the accompanying yards but after a few barks we had two hours of quiet swimming without a single peep from either of them. Brilliant but yet a power switch as others have said would be nice. With the amazing result though I can look past that

We have three dogs - Great Dane, Husky, and a German Shepherd. The Shepherd is our noisy dog. Barks inside to let us know every time a car drives by - we live in town and can hear the cars ourselves, so it really isn't needed! Barks to go out. Then barks at bugs, birds, shadows as if she is the last line of defense against these horrors. She has been known to bark instead of potty, so the whole cycle starts over again. The other dogs would nip at her when it got too bad. Last night, we brought the dogs outside while we hung up my new favorite yard decoration. And then it happened. A dreaded bird flew into our yard and the shepherd started barking. Then stopped. Tried again, and stopped. I can't believe it was this easy.

an insane designALISON you nailed it. Who in their right mind would design any electronic device WITHOUT an on/off switch? Do you go to the basement and turn off the circuit breaker that feeds your washing machine to put in another load of wash, because the machine doesn't have an on/off switch? A stupid oversight.

Amazing!!!3/10/14

A note of thanks for the peace one of your products has brought to our family and neighbors!!! We have a 130 pound German Shepherd who is amazing!! Only problem was our neighbors didn't feel the same. His constant barking at the fence with the neighbors dog was starting to wear on people and to be completely honest us to. I went on the the PetSafe website and after a lot of reading decided on the Elite Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark Control. This product has been life changing!!!! We now have peace in the neighborhood!!! Worked the first night we put it out!! Love the fact that it has a timer. We set it to come only the evening through early morning when the issue was the worst. It was the best money I have ever spent!!!!!! Thanks PetSafe!!!!

Just plugged in the device in my yard. Neighbor dogs at first barked constantly as usual when I go in the yard, but then were silent. No barking since. Thank you Pet Safe and my cats thank you, too!

Works great for my dogs but besides setting the timer, there isn't an on/off switch to shut it off so I have to yank the battery out. I need to turn it off when I'm mowing in the yard and playing fetch with the dogs b/c it goes off when the ball hits the fence or to other loud noise. It also goes off when I'm removing and replacing the battery which has essentially trained my dogs to not want to be outdoors. A little too sensitive and no easy way to turn it off while I'm outdoors to make the correction myself.
