Jet Worked once, then my dog became accustomed to the sound. It seems to work well when used manually, because my dog associates me being angry when he barks, and then the sound. But when I leave him alone its almost like his bark drowns out the noise, so he cant even hear it. He just keeps barking even if the device is literally a foot from his face.



Simply put- Petsafe doesnt seem to design their products very well. If there were adjustable levels for the noise, or an on/ off switch (the manual says to remove the battery to preserve its life- I just LOLed when i read that. Talk about wasted time and energy to take out the battery every time. Just add an on/off switch!) the product would clearly work better. My dog is small too, so his bark is sharp, much like the sonic noise. If the noise level increased as he kept barking, he would stop.

Greenplumie This Unit Is Best Iv Use Yet!!!

It Keep's My Yorkie Poos Under Control.

It Work Right Away. They Saw Another Dog Coming Up My Street & They Stop There Crazy Barking. Life Is Good Now At My House. I'll Keep The Dogs Now :)

DOBIE We have a 16 month old Doberman who has resorted to loud aggressive barking at the window when people walk by. He would get himself all worked up in a state of panic barking and running back and forth across the house. At night when we go upstairs to bed again he would bark up the stairs, some times for hours. The stress was becoming unbearable. I put a mussel on him once and he seamed really frightened, so it was a no go. We bought this unit three days ago and finally we have peace! one bark and all is quiet. He can still make other dog noises and soft barks to communicate with us, without it activating. He seems calmer and content, everyone is happy again. Next I will take it in the car, were he barks till he foams at the mouth, spits on me and I have to wear earplugs. THIS UNIT IS GREAT and AFFORDABLE.

Ange This product should simply not be used, at least not on my dog. I bought this product in hopes that I could get my dog's barking under control before we have a baby. I brought it home and put in a 9 volt battery (which isn't even included and for the price I paid should be), and it immediately picked up some noise (not even my dog barking) and sent off a wave of sound, which actually I could feel in my body while holding the machine, and subsequently sent my dog diving under the table, quivering in fear and trying to get as far away as possible. I put the device on the coffee table and put my dog outside. It picked up more noises that weren't even barking, and there is no option to turn it to a manual mode so only you can activate it. There is also no on/off switch so you have to actually take the batteries out if you don't want it to go off. Which I did, so I could monitor my dog's behaviour for a while. My dog refused to come inside for about 2 hours, and when he did he was still quivering. He was up half the night quivering. There is no way to adjust the frequency of this machine and it obviously hurt my dog's ears very badly. He is a yorki-poo. The next day my dog was still acting weird and scared and shaking a bit. Later in the day he started barking at something and I went over to the machine and just picked it up, and he was absolutely terrified and tried to get outside. I am not about to subject my dog to that so I took the machine back and bought a 3 dollar dog whistle instead, which actually allows me to adjust the frequency and subsequently praise my dog immediately when he stops barking - this method has actually worked wonders and I would recommend it for any of you considering this ridiculous machine. As I was informed by a dog trainer, that is the most important part - the praise afterward for stopping the negative behaviour. Don't rely on any machine to train your dog - you have to step up and do it yourself! And even if you are looking for a last resort solution, I still would not recommend this machine!

Audrey This product works great -- exactly as advertised. My Chihuahua is a yapper and as long as she is within the range, she is quiet. She may bark to warn me that someone is at my door but she does bark softly then and only about twice, then she stops.



Also I have read reviews that say that the 9V battery lasts a very short time. I used to take the battery in and out and have suggested to PetSafe to put an on/off switch on the unit. I do not know if they will do that, but I would certainly love to have that feature. About a month ago, I decided to leave the battery in and see how long it lasted. It has been on 24/7 now and it does not wear the battery down. I am assuming that it might be because my dog is not barking that much anymore. If she is in the back of the house, she will bark and zap constantly at the critters and isn't affected by the bark control because it is probably 60 ft. away from the devise. However, it is easily moved to the back of the house also. I wish I could afford another unit. DO NOT HESITATE TO PURCHASE ONE OF THESE! It sure saves on the scolding of the dog and saves me from the headaches from my dog's shrill bark!

Happy quiet pet owner I just received this devise from a friend that said it didn't work for her black lab puppy. Our pom-poo and corky reacted to it as soon as we brought it home. It's only been one day but we love the silence so far. It works just like the product says it should for us. I'll try the car next. I do wish it had an on/off switch.

Jeremy S. Firstly, I have a Wheaten Terrier who's 2 years old now. We are so close and like all Wheatens, he barks and has tantrums if I even leave the house to put out the garbage. This would involve over 20 barks and back flips and gymnastics on the couch. He will look out the window to see where I have gone. I just bought this today and turned it on. I did a practice test and went out the door. Although Ronan didn't know this was new, he barked about twice, jumped on the couch and then paused, I saw him shake his head like something was new. I looked at him through the door window and he was calm for once, he still watched me go out to the back but just watched in peace. I just want him to know that it's okay if I need to leave sometimes and not go bonkers. This calmed him down on the very first attempt, WOW! It might be easy for me to walk out the door now without a crisis in the foyer! Although he never barks on his Wheaten Greetins, he always has barked whenever ANYONE has left our house.

Msry mother of two I have two dogs in the house and when the door bell or company comes it is rediclous the barking they do. I've tried a lot of thinga,I am one not to want to hurt them, but I even tried the dog collar. But this is great set it where they can hear it accivate and they are quite, and small enough to take along, they do not like drive in mail box and the ladies at the bank drive in window so just take it along, very handy and convient.

Sactown dog owner So far this only works manually with our chihuahua. I called the company and they helped me test it to confirm that it was activated. I moved it down to the floor to be closer to her, but it doesn't seem to work remotely, even when she barks right near it. We probably won't return it because it is still great as a manual device, but so far it does not work at all remotely -- which is a bummer.
