Description

This tabletop device can help safely control your dog’s barking from up to 25 feet away (about the size of 1-2 rooms in a typical house). Simply put it on a table or counter in the room where your dog barks the most. Whenever your dog barks, all pets within range will hear a 2-second ultrasonic tone. You can can set it to go off automatically every time your dog barks or manually press a button to make the tone sound. Your dog will learn to associate his barking with the unpleasant high-pitched sound (inaudible to most humans). Most dogs bark less within a few days. Now there’s the answer to the problem barker!

Not nearly strong enough signal, 4/9/14
by
We purchased this product without first check the reviews. I wished we would have taken the time to do this first. The unit worked great on our two small dogs for about three days. After that it was back to the same barking as if the unit was not working at all but it was. I can't imagine this working on any dog for any length of time. The signal or frequency is just not strong enough and they get immune to it in just a short amount of time.

I bought this and it is not going off without manually pushing button. , 4/7/14
by
The dog barking is not enough to make it work. I have basically set it right on top of her and it doesn't work. I push the button and the puppy doesn't really respond but my older dog who doesn't have barking issues reacts. Nothing too bad but you can tell he hears it. The puppy definitely does not have hearing issues either.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that the Indoor Ultrasonic Bark Control doesn't seem to be the right fit for your puppy! Please know that we do offer other bark control products that may be a better fit. We would suggest to use a spray, or static bark device that would respond to the pet that is wearing the device instead of possibly affecting both dogs. To learn more about these products, please use the link available below, or contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.

Waste of Money, 4/6/14
by
This unit was a waste of money. I've gone through three batteries thinking that maybe the batteries were old or weak but no improvement. I have three small dogs and it didn't phase any of them.

On/Off Switch and Battery Compartment, 4/5/14
by
Such a simple thing yet not incorporated in the product design. Leaving it in a "ready" position = battery discharge. Having long fingernails and having to keep removing the battery to dis-arm the unit it truly a pain. There is no reason an on/off switch could not be implemented.
The battery compartment. The way the wire opening is situated in the compartment (to the side) puts the wire in a crimped position when connected to the battery and the cover in place, putting undo stress on the wire. I suggest maybe having the battery lay in the unit on it's side narrow inside of as it is, on the flat side. This would eliminate the crimped wire.
I haven't tried the unit itself, but the mechanics of this unit could be better designed.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are always looking for ways to improve our products, and we do appreciate your feedback! Your suggestion has been forwarded to the appropriate team for review. Please know that this device has a battery life of about 2 months, depending on how often it is used. To conserve battery life, we recommend to remove the battery when not in use. We also have other bark control solutions available that may be more suitable to your preferences. To learn more about them, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677, or view the link below.

Worked for about a week, 2/25/14
by
Unit worked for maybe a week before it stopped working correctly. Very weak ultrasonic sound that has become ineffective at this point (I tested it when new). Hopefully Petsmart will take it back and give me back the 50 plus bucks I spent on this. Ugh, so much for sleep again.....

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We appreciate your feedback on this product! As pet owners ourselves, we can understand how frustrating it can be to lose sleep over nuisance barking! Please Know that this Bark Control device does include a 1 year limited warranty, and we would be happy to discuss troubleshooting and replacement options with you. To discuss a solution, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.

Works on my howling CAT!, 2/9/14
by
Last night I finally told myself I would put my cat up for adoption. I just could not take it any more. Four years of trying to control/fix/help her behavior to no avail. She's not sick, hungry, doesn't want in or out, just wants to howl as loudly as possible the moment I fall asleep (and for ten hours thereafter.) She simply wants me to spend every moment pleasing her.

Enter the Ultrasonic Bark Control.

My ex-roommate had given it to me, brand new, because he didn't need it and I was moving into a place with dogs next door. I never needed it for the dogs, so it just sat in my box of things. Well, this morning that changed. As a last attempt, I thought I would try it.

As soon as she started to wail, I hit the button, and she didn't know what hit her. She was mortified. After about 15 minutes, she started to approach me and wail some more. I hit the button and OFF she went! She hasn't made a peep since. This is after two nights of non-stop meowing and fussing. (And zero sleep for me.)

I really hope this continues to work as I don't want to give her up. Really, compared to everything else I've tried, this is looking very promising.

Doesn't work!, 2/3/14
by
Scared my Maltese the first time and after that it did nothing. I don't even know if it is emitting a sound or not. Now the red light comes on for just about any sound at all. I don't have the receipt so I just threw away my money!

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that the design of this product has failed to meet your expectations! There may be another Bark Control Device that would be a better fit for your Maltese. Please know that your unit does come with a 1 year limited warranty, and we do have replacement options available even if you are unable to locate your receipt. Please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677 so we may find a solution that best suits your needs.

Could be a good product but...., 11/25/13
by
OK but it has no on/off switch. You must remove the battery each time, so I have to fumble to reconnect when the barking starts. Would be great if it had a turn off button.
Not good if you have more than one dog ( or loud kids) Penalizes the dog not barking.

Works one for dog, not the other, 10/7/13
by
I have two dogs; a ShihTzu and a Lhasa Apso, both 13 yrs old. The Lhasa Apso is blind and barks often, especially in the morning upon awakening very early. The unit does not emit an ultrasonic tone, i.e. it doesn't light up red, for the Lhasa but does for the 'good' dog. I have tried the spray and the pulsing collars already. And training. The shock collar would not be fair for a blind dog. Thanks anyway!

What a waste of money~., 9/16/13
by
Used it for several months,,,, no affect what so ever on my Sheltie. Cost me a lot extra on batteries,

PETSAFE RESPONSE:

We are sorry to hear that the Indoor Ultrasonic Bark Control unit is not a good fit for your pet. If your pet is not responding well to the ultrasonic correction, we would recommend considering one of our spray, static, or vibration bark control products to help attract your pet's attention and deter your pet's barking. If you would like to discuss any of these options with us, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.
