We have a neighbor move in with 4 outside dogs.
Three small and an old big dog.
They all bark.
Lost way too many hours of sleep to those dogs.
Had to go to court and get the city to cite the owners.
What a joke.
No enforcement from the city after they told the owners to have them all wear collars.
So we tried a hand held device. Works, but a work out for us to use.
Next.
This outdoors one (Deluxe Outdoor Dog Bark Control) was just to see if it worked.
A coin flip.
We have wood fences and did not think it could go through them or the cracks between the boards.
Well, the dogs learned to stop barking by 3 weeks later.
Even the old dog.
I can not believe it!
It worked for us.

I was really really hoping this would shut my neighbors dog up, but it didn't work. It didn't phase him in the least bit so I'm going to get a refund and try to find something else

All reviews of this product made me believe it would solve my problem. I tried it on 2 barking dogs approximately 50 feet away. I left the unit up for 3 weeks. The barking continued the same as always without any effect. I changed the battery each week thinking a stronger battery might work. I tried placing the unit in 2 different spots with no results. I wish this would have worked. We are running out of options to stop the barking. I would not recommend this product for dogs that are only let out for 1 hour at a time 4 to 5 times a day that think they need to bark non stop every time they are let outside to bark at nothing, jump up and down at the fence while barking and sit at the top of their deck and bark continuously for no reason. Maybe the dogs we tried this product on are just stupid.

I had a neighbor call the cops to my home a few nights ago because Izzy would not stop barking. I slept through it. I didn't know what to do because she is an outside dog. Pitt/Lab mix. She barks at other animals and people. I heard about this and wanted to give it a try. Wasn't to sure about it because the manager at Petsmart said he wouldn't recommend it. I got it anyway. First night, Izzy would bark once and then the sound would stop her. She doesn't bark at night anymore. I have it on a timer so it only activates at night and she can bark and be a normal dog all day long. :) I love this product. <3

Did not work at all for my dogs

Wanting to avoid a shock collar, I purchased this ultrasonic bark control device after reading a couple of good reviews and was sorely disappointed. Bark control is a must, as our neighbors were apparently irritated enough with the dogs barking that they called animal control & we were threatened with a $100 ticket the next time they were called. Our German Shepherd was completely oblivious to any sound he may have heard from the unit. Our Ridgeback mix has poor hearing and either couldn't hear the sound or didn't care. It seemed to work for a couple of days with our Rottweiler, but she soon became desensitized to it. In addition, I can't help but wonder if other neighborhood noises like lawn mowers kept them from hearing the sound. Things to consider before buying: is a dog sensitive enough to care about the sound? Will a dog be able to hear the sound over other noises? Is a dog's hearing impaired? If the answer to any of these is no, don't buy! Unfortunately, all of our dogs now have much more effective shock collars.

This works great!! I got it for my yappie dogs! They bark at anything that walks by our fence. It has not even been up two weeks and we notice a difference, maybe one little bark and they are done! It is so nice. Now people can walk by our house and not have yappie dogs!!!

My neighbors are terrible, neglectful dog owners who leave their large Weimaraner out all hours of the day and night. The dog barks constantly, frequently for 20-30 minutes at a time. After complaining countless times to the homeowners' association, the police and animal control, I purchased this.
I honestly didn't expect it to work. The manager at my local store didn't expect it to work and actually tried to dissuade me from buying it. The unit says it cannot be higher than 5 feet tall and cannot be behind a wooden fence. I didn't have any choice but to place it 6 1/2 feet tall and sitting on a fence post.
Within a week, the dog barking has almost completely stopped. I'm completely sold on this product. While I'm irritated that I had to buy it in the first place, it's given me my first full night's sleep in more than 6 months.
I do have a mostly indoor lab. When I put the battery in while in the house, he reacted negatively immediately. However, it does not bother him while he's in the house and the neighbor dog barks.
