When you come home in the evenings, your dog quickly brings a smile to your face and washes away the worries of the day. Yet, after a few minutes, she starts telling you about her day. What started as a relaxing evening, quickly turns into a night of barking followed by commands of “Ssssh”, “No”, “Quiet”, etc.
Nicole was experiencing the similar struggle with Riesling. Any time any one came to the door, she saw a squirrel run across the yard, or she was bored, Riesling was barking. Nicole started using the Indoor Bark Control, and she got better. See how it works in this video:
When the Indoor Bark Control is within range of a barking dog, an internal microphone picks up the sound and automatically activates the unit It then emits an ultrasonic sound. Startled by the high-pitched sound, which is safe and effective for dogs of all sizes and breeds, the dog will stop the barking. She will begin to associate his barking with the unpleasant tone, and will remain quiet to avoid it. When the dog stops barking, the ultrasonic sound also stops and both of you will return to a lifestyle of peace and quiet.
