Advanced Dog Bark Stopper From PestBye
Can be highly effective in controlling nuisance barking - your own dog or your neighbour's dog.
How does it work?
The unit senses the noise of barking dogs. When activated the device releases a very loud ultrasonic noise, this noise is at a too high a frequency for most humans to hear but is alarming and uncomfortable to dogs. The dog will learn to associate this noise with the barking and in most circumstances the barking will desist or be greatly reduced.
Most dogs are sensitive to frequencies around 23kHz, however the Advanced Bark Stopper emits frequencies between 22kHz and 25kHz to cover as wide a range as possible.
Unlike similar products this device is suitable for both Indoor and Outdoor use.
The device boasts range sensitivity settings, which allow you to control the distance at which the barking can be picked up from.
A test button allows you to check the device is functioning by emitting an audible noise for you to hear.
The Advanced Bark Stopper has a coverage span of an oval measuring 82ft (25m) long by 49ft 2" (15m) wide.
Position the device pointing towards the usual area the dog will be in. Aim to achieve line of sight with the dog. Because ultrasonic sound is a high frequency it behaves more like light than sound - consequently fences and dense shrubbery may block the signal and reduce the effectiveness of the device.
If there is a fence between the device and the target dog, place the device high and point it down towards the dog.
As with all products that involve animal behaviour, results vary from one dog to another.
Where possible, the Advanced Bark Stopper should be used in conjunction with spoken commands to reinforce the message. Whilst many dogs are trained quickly, some need more patience and perseverance. In very rare cases the results may be less than totally effective.
This device takes 4 x AA batteries - not included.
Mains adaptor not included. Device can only be battery operated.
