The motion-activated spray safely and automatically keeps pets away from rooms, furniture, and areas in your home. Set it on the counter to keep your cat from jumping up, or place it in the doorway to the living room to keep your dog out of the room and off the couch. It's easy to train your dog or cat to stay out of certain areas. When your pet comes near the Ssscat, he'll feel a quick burst of harmless but startling spray. The spray reminds your pet to stay away. The adjustable spray nozzle can detect and deter pets from up to 3 feet away.
