Is ultrasonic bark control effective on all dogs?

Ultrasonic bark correction is often the best bark control solution for many dogs. However, it will not work for all dogs because of factors like age, hearing ability, and temperament. When setting up the device, make sure there are no obstacles between the dog and the device. Also, make sure that the birdhouse speaker is less than 5 feet high and is facing the direction of the barking dog.

We're committed to finding the right barking solution for you and your dog.

Best Use Tips

  • Place the unit no higher than 5 feet from the ground.
  • Face the front of the device towards the dog.
  • Make sure there aren't any large objects between the device and the dog. The sound doesn't travel well through fences, trees, or walls.
  • Don't use ultrasonic bark control on dogs who are deaf or hard of hearing. They won't respond to the sound.
  • Turn off the device when not in use. This helps prevent dogs from becoming desensitized to the sound.
  • Add additional units to cover larger areas.
  • Only use outdoor units outside and indoor units inside. The ultrasonic sound for each device is designed to be used inside or outside only.
  • To improve battery life, turn the unit off when not in use.
