Description

Whenever your dog – or your neighbor’s dog– barks, he will hear a safe, high-pitched sound (inaudible to most humans) that will cue him to stop his annoying habit. Modeled to look like a birdhouse, the bark controller is battery-operated and has three settings plus a test option. Our ultrasonic outdoor bark control unit looks like any ordinary birdhouse that can hang in a tree, on a fence post, or anywhere outside. With a range of 50 feet, the ultrasonic sound could cover a 1/4 acre yard.

Key Features

  • Uses high-frequency ultrasonic sound to disrupt nuisance barking
  • Works on all dogs within hearing range
  • Ultrasonic sound projects in a cone shape of about 180 degrees in front of the speaker

Features

  • For outdoor use only
  • Range up to 50 feet
  • Durable and weatherproof
  • Uses 9v alkaline battery (not included)
  • Part Numbers: OBC-1000

Worked great for 2 months, 4/10/14
by
When we purchased the outdoor ultrasonic bark control it was amazing. Our two dogs didn't bark at the birds anymore, the neighbor dogs didn't bark at our dogs barking, and quiet was restored in the neighborhood. This lasted almost exactly 2 months and then it no longer worked. I changed the batteries, but they all began barking again. I have the apparatus under a cover so it does not get rained on, or sit in extreme sun. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why it suddenly stopped working. I tried to return it to the feed store where I purchased it, but they will not take it since it has been over 30 days. I told everyone I met about how wonderful the product was, I hope they didn't go out and buy it!

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear you have encountered an issue with your Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark Control device! Please know that we do offer troubleshooting tips located at the link below and through our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.

Useless product and waste of money, 1/18/14
by
Paid $115.00 AUD for this product and very disappointed at its lack of effectiveness and constant drain on batteries. I purchased this as we have a neighbour with a non stop barking dog and and he won't do anything to stop it. We were desperate to try something as the constant barking destroys our quality of home life. This product emits it's sound ok at every bark but the dog just doesn't notice. The device is very power hungry as it goes through a battery every week or two, probably because the dog barks so much. I have given up using it as it is too costly to keep replacing batteries with no result whatsoever. This product is nothing more than a costly gimmick and a total waste of money. I cannot recommend it as it simply does not do what it is marketed to do.

Don't waste your money or time, worthless product..., 1/13/14
by
Attached product to fence top directed toward three barker's, they bark non stop day and night, left it up for a solid week, nothing changed, the device was only a few feet from the dogs, it made absolutely no difference. In 1-10 ten being the best it was a minus -5 in performance....

good product that we have used indoors, 12/30/13
by
I recently bought the outdoor unit from a retailer who advised that there were no issues with using the unit indoors. We have been using it for the past week and it seems to function very effectively indoors. Could you comment on the issues with using it indoors?

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are happy to hear that the UltraSonic Bark Control is working well for your situation. However, due to frequency strength, the recommended use is for outdoors only. We do offer an Indoor Bark Control unit which may better suit your needs. You can view this device by using the link below:

Never had any effect on my dog

Dog still barks and how do I know it is emitting U/S sounds, 12/4/13
by
Next door dogs are out at 6 AM and barking.
Then indoors all day until 6 PM then barking, inside until 10 PM and then barking. Petsafe unit is ON 24/7 set withing 15 ft of fence and they continue to bark!!
The RED light says it is working...but...I want to have a testing device to prove that it is emitting U/S sounds rather than accepting the companies word that the RED light says it is.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that the Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark Control has failed to meet your expectations. The sound that is emitted from the device is hard for many of us to hear because it is designed to affect your pet's behavior. For the unit to work properly, try to ensure that the the device is facing the dogs. The ultrasonic sound is sent out in an cone-shaped region in from the unit, so the unit may not respond if the dog is behind it, and the dog probably will not hear it. Also, if there are large items in between the device and the pets, the unit will not be able to pick up the barking properly. For indoor barking, we do have a product that may better suit your needs.

Finally able to enjoy our time outside, 11/2/13
by
My parents' house is surrounded with dogs that are behind chain-link fences and interested in everything we are doing. Anytime we step outside, we are greeted with all of their non-stop barking. We rarely ate or played outside because of this. A friend of ours told us about this product, so we thought we would give it a shot. It has worked miracles! The dogs show no sign of being in pain, but will bark once or twice and then stop. We have enjoyed our yard so much more, we even got a hot tub and love being outside...now if we could only find a good solution to the mosquitoes!

Worked Great for 2 months, 10/17/13
by
Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark Control worked great as I have 2 dogs next door that NEVER stop barking. I purchased 2 of these items and placed one in back corner of yard and another on front corner due to trees that dogs would stand behind when barking. They worked perfectly. I finally got some sleep as it had been more than 6 months since I had slept more than 2 hours between barking. The problem was that at about 2 months old one stopped emitting any sounds , it still lit up like it was working but nothing. Within a week the other one quit as well. It only took a couple of days and the dogs started again and now I am right where I started but out 160 dollars. The place I purchased them from wouldn't give a refund since it was past 30 days. This website won't after 30 days either....Would not recommend to purchase .

It works., 9/28/13
by
Had my doubts, looked up the product and purchased it. The clerk at the store was doubtful as well... Got it home, tested it and immediately my dog stopped barking and took cover. My dog would bark at any unknown noise, object or person. He howls in sync with the sirens of emergency vehicles... Great watch dog but a little unpleasant for the neighbors. I am concerned at what other noises may be setting it off. Anyone know?

It does work. But...., 9/26/13
by
I got my new dog from the local shelter and didn't realize I had the much dreaded "BARKER" coming to my house. So after 4 months of pure agony I finally checked out what I could do to stop this in a humane manner. I checked the reviews and decided this was the best for my situation. It worked immediately but what I didn't realize the dog must have previously had a shock collar used on him for this problem, so as soon as he heard the correction noise he ran for his life! He hid for most of the day, I felt really bad for him so I think if you use this it would be a good idea to try and know the history on the dog if possible. I'm not an expert but if you get a shelter dog like mine who has a barking problem he or she is probably there because of it and might have had this done to them also. All in all I think with a little understanding and this product he will learn again and I'll be at peace again with our Buddy.
