Ultrasonic Bark Control Collar: What Did the Research Tell Us?

We all want our homes to be peaceful and we don’t want our dog’s behavior to reflect poorly on us as owners.

As the leading producer of bark control solutions, we understand the many frustrations surrounding excessive barking. From apartment dwellers who need to keep noise under control to yard dogs who disrupt the entire neighborhood, pet parents are consistently in need of solutions to help keep their dog’s barking under control. That’s why we continue to work with dog owners to develop effective bark control products.

Prior to the release of the Ultrasonic Bark Control Collar, we asked real pet owners with talkative pups to test this product in their homes. We were not surprised that most of our participants wanted to control barking when they were home and/or when they had visiting guests. We were excited to see how the Ultrasonic Bark Control collar worked for them in these specific circumstances. And it performed great!

“The unit is a good size. Once we got it on, it seemed to work right away,” said one test participant.

The Ultrasonic Bark Control Collar works by using an ultrasonic tone to deter barking. When the collar’s microphone detects the sound of your dog’s bark, it immediately emits an ultrasonic tone. While the ultrasonic tone can be heard by dogs, it is unheard by most humans. This is great news, because the last thing we need when our dogs are barking is even more noise. The ultrasonic tone is a safe yet annoying sound for our dogs. The collar starts with a low tone when your pet starts barking and elevates if they continue. It continues to vary the tone every time your pet barks, so he doesn't know what to expect or grow accustomed to the tone.

“When we put the collar on, and our dog started barking she quickly stopped and looked around as if something was bothering her. She did not bark again when the collar was on her,” another participant said.

Our research participants represented a very diverse group of dogs, breeds and sizes, ranging from 8 lb to 110 lb. Our tester dogs were also very enthusiastic barkers! Regardless of breed or size, our talkative testers responded well to the Ultrasonic Bark Control Collar within just a few days of wearing the product. Our participants saw a clear change in the amount of their dog's barking when they wanted to control it.

“The collar seems to be great so far… and it seems that it will last awhile,” one satisfied participant told us.

The type of bark collar you choose is most dependent on your dog and your goals for bark control. We offer the Ultrasonic Bark Control Collar to pet parents who want to control excessive barking with timid or less stubborn dogs.
