We have a lot of dogs, and it seems that whenever one dog barks, they all start barking. In fact, they bark when they hear a noise, they bark when we come into our own home, and sometimes if they feel like being naughty, they'll even bark at us.
The barking became non-stop, and especially would suck early in the
morning if God forbid the neighbor went outside to start his car to go
We figured we were at a loss, and that nothing would stop it. No
matter how much we yelled at them to be quiet. However my brothers
girlfriend recently told s about some black box that she actually
considered magic. She stated this black box would shut her dogs up
immediately. That this magical black box was so effective that just
showing it to them would shut them up, without even having to press the
I didn't believe it for a second, but seeing that she swore by it, I
went on my quest to finding this black magical box that would shut the
We hit up our local PetCo seeing that if anyone carried such a magical device i would be them.
We came across the PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer for $59.99. Very pricey, but if it didn't work we were promised a full money back guarantee.
The PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer was not necessarily a box. It was
slimmer and sleeker than the one she had described to us, and it also
came with not only a negative tone, but also a positive one. So
basically whenever the dogs went haywire we could press the N button at
the top, or the P button below that for positive reinforcement.
The PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer did not come with batteries though,
so we had to go back out fr a square battery before using it.
Once we had the battery installed we headed home and tested the remote out.
Immediately as we entered the door, the dogs began their usual ritual
of 'who can bark the loudest, and the longest'. However the moment I hit
the N button, they all backed off and shut up.
I stood there amazed and in shock. Had this $60 device truly, finally brought peace to the world? Oh my God had it ever!
Ever since getting the PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer, we have found
that the dogs rarely bark whenever someone comes into the house now.
They don't have random barking contests anymore, and finally the house
is actually quiet!
What is also phenomenal is that when they do bark, we don;t even have
to press the button anymore, we simply have to show it to them, and I
never thought that something as simple as a small black remote could
bring such peace and quiet.
Now as far as the negative tone goes, when you press it, you should
not press it for longer than 2 seconds. Also when you press it you will
hear a nothing but a small clicking noise.
When the P button is hit, the dogs don't seem to mind, and our Bull
Terrier actually wags his tail and comes near whenever he hears it. The P
tone is a bit louder to the human ear, with a small humming ring noise
to it. Again, don't press it for longer than 2 seconds.
But definitely press down on it quickly for whenever your dog does something good.
In the past 2 weeks we have owned it, the PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet
Trainer has been nothing but a blessing in our home. The dogs listen
more now, they do not have bouts of barking spells, nor are they
aggressive whenever someone comes home.
I cannot stress it enough, if you are having an issue with a barking
dog, a dog that jumps on people, than the PetSafe Ultrasonic Pet Trainer
is the answer to all of your dogs behavior problems.
I highly, highly recommend this one. It has not failed us yet.
If you feel an immediate need for one you can find it at PetCo,
however if you look for it online by googling the name PetSafe
Ultrasonic Pet Trainer, you can scoop it up for under $30.00.
