Update April 2015: We are no longer selling the PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control, but highly recommend the latest Outdoor Bark Control from Eyenimal. Eyenimal Outdoor Bark Control looks like a lantern, and can be hung in a plant stand or tree, or on top of a flat surface. Like the PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control, it controls nuisance barking up to a range of 50 feet. It is designed for outdoor use, and it is waterproof. With its stealth design to look like a lantern, it will help to control barking from all dogs within its range. The dog does not have to wear a collar, so you can secretly curb the barking of your neighbor’s dogs as well as your own.

A friend of mine had some occasions when her dogs barked unnecessarily and she had been looking for a way to put a stop to it. Here is her story:
I was looking for a way to end my dogs barking unnecessarily that doesn’t involve me yelling like a fishwife to absolutely no effect! For example, when I take one lot of dogs out for a run, some of the others bark and I can’t be in two places at once to shut them up! I’m good, but not THAT good! The other time is first thing in the morning when I’m rushing around to get everyone walked and fed in turns, some get impatient and bark and I hate it, it’s like being nagged to hurry up and if there’s one thing I hate it’s being told what to do by my dogs!
Browsing round the net, I found a little device and on a whim I bought it. You can hang it place it near the dogs, and it emits an ultrasound tone that the dogs respond to, probably like those dog deterrent things for postmen. I hung it up in one of the barns where two of the dogs are as they were barking early in the morning and it’s as silent as a graveyard now! I can’t believe it, something that actually works and involves no yelling, harm, electric shocks or anything other than a sound that I can’t even hear. I even had to sneak in and make sure they were still alive as it was too quiet!
It’s called “Bark Control”. It detects barking up to 50ft and doesn’t react to other noises (it did react to a cough though, so I try not to now when I’m near it) like traffic or doors banging or human voices or other background noise. It has 3 levels and I’m only using the lowest one at present as that seems to work perfectly. Not expensive either. I’m going to try it with the other dog today to see if it shuts her up too when she gets into her nonsense spoiled brat barking that my other half insists on rewarding with chews or taking her out for a nice drive in the car!
Isn’t it nice when you find something that does what it says on the packet!
