PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control
The PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control Birdhouse is a visually-pleasing solution to your dog’s outdoor barking. The weatherproof unit can be placed up to 1.5m from the ground; hanging in a tree, from a fencepost, or even placed straight in a garden bed. It has 3 levels of normal operation, with an effective range of up to 15m directly in front of the unit on the highest level. Each time your dog barks in front of the unit, it will emit an ultrasonic sound that is inaudible to humans, and irritating to dogs, until the barking stops. Whilst safe, this is enough to deter your dog from barking in their usual spots and usually has a noticeable effect within the first 2 weeks of use.
The Outdoor Bark Control unit uses a 9V alkaline battery (not included). Average battery life is 2 months.
Tips + Tricks:
- Dogs can become desensitised to ultrasonic frequencies over time – the same way humans become desensitised to traffic after moving near a busy road. To help avoid this you can turn the unit off for a few days every now and then; or move it to a slightly different location occassionally.
- The unit is waterproof, but if water enters the microphone it may not activate as usual until it dries out.
- If all your dogs bark this is a great solution! If this isn’t the case for your home, using PetSafe collars on the barkers will prevent correction of other dogs. PetSafe Vibrating, Spray or Static Bark Collars are all suitable options.
- Keep the unit at arm’s length from your ears during setup to prevent any possible hearing damage if your dog sets it off during this time.
- Please don’t use this product indoors! The ultrasonic sound is inaudible to humans but it is still possible for you to experience discomfort after an extended barking session if used indoors.
