Whether it's your dog or the neighbor's dog that barks incessantly, here's a great solution to problem barking. New from PetSafe, this "decorative birdhouse" is really a highly effective bark- deterrent in disguise. Designed to be hung easily from trees or quickly mounted on fence posts, this bark-control device uses ultrasonic tones to quell excessive barking from dogs nearby. When the dog barks excessively, the unit emits a high-pitch ultrasonic (inaudible to humans) tone that quiets it down, so you, and your neighbor, can enjoy the day and have uninterrupted sleep at night.
For a dog that's happy to be quiet
At PetSafe brand, we are passionate about creating innovative behavioural, containment and lifestyle product solutions to give you more great moments with your pets.
SUMMARY OF PRODUCT
Owners can deter their own dog or their neighbour’s dog from nuisance barking with this discreet, cleverly designed system. When the Outdoor Bark Control is within range of constant barking, an internal microphone picks up the barking sound and the unit is activated. The Outdoor Bark Control emits an ultrasonic sound which can only be heard by the dog. Startled by the high-pitched sound, the dog should stop barking, as it will associate its bark with this unpleasant noise. There are four levels of sensitivity spanning 4.5 to 15 metres.
Dogs bark for many different reasons but in most cases barking serves as a form of communication. Dog owners will generally recognise four different types of bark; warning, alarm, playful and need. For instance continuous fast barking is a warning, perhaps alerting that someone is entering their home territory, whereas long, drawn-out barks at a high pitch, with pauses between each one indicate that a dog is in need and is possibly lonely.
It is important for dog owners to try to establish why their dog is barking. Some barking may be completely normal, such as when someone knocks at the front door, but other barking may be associated with behavioural problems such as separation anxiety. Bark Control systems should not be used on dogs whose barking is a consequence of an anxiety or stress related condition.
Why should I use Bark Control?
If your dog’s barking is normal but unacceptable then Bark Control may be your solution. Not only do barking dogs disturb their owners they also disturb neighbours, and tenants could face eviction by landlords if their dog’s barking is becoming a nuisance. Unfortunately behavioural therapy to manage barking can take a long time to be effective and sometimes it is necessary to find a solution very quickly.
It is the ability of the stimulation to ‘interrupt’ a dog’s barking that makes these systems such valuable social tools. However, because of this response it is important that these systems are introduced slowly and carefully according to the instructions for each product.
Bark Control systems are behaviourally activated. This means that the dog can avoid unpleasant stimulation by adjusting his behaviour. The dog controls the stimulation - not the owner. Ultimately the dog learns not to bark and avoid stimulation completely.
The Outdoor Bark Control has no weight or size restriction and can be used from ‘Extra small’ dogs to ‘Extra-large’ dogs.
