Product Info

What is Bark Genie Handheld Bark Control?

For most dogs, barking is their way of alerting and protecting you from potential dangers, but in some cases this natural alarm system can become frustrating if it's excessive. With the Bark Genie Handheld Bark Control Device you can stop annoying barking with the touch of a button! Using ultrasonic technology, a safe sound is emitted that only dogs can hear. This sound helps deter barking and bad behavior, making it a great training tool. The Bark Genie Handheld Bark Control Device works up to 15 ft away and is perfect to help stop dogs from barking, jumping, chewing and stealing food. The compact design and optional wrist strap make it perfect for walks or visits to the veterinarian's office.




  • Controls barking on most dogs regardless of size or breed
  • Uses safe, noninvasive ultrasonic sound waves that only dogs can hear
  • Helps control barking indoors, outdoors and on the go

How does Bark Genie Handheld Bark Control work?

With its ultrasonic technology, the Bark Genie Handheld immediately detects barking within a radius up to 15 feet and emits an ultrasonic sound only dogs can hear to instantly stop their barking behavior. Requires 4 AAA alkaline batteries, which are not included.


Do not submerse in water or any other liquid.

Instructions to use the Bark Genie Handheld Bark Control Device

  • Tips on using the Bark Genie Handheld Bark Control Device

FAQs about the Bark Genie Handheld Bark Control Device

How do I know the Bark Genie Handheld Bark Control Device is working? When in testing mode the green LED should be on to let you know it is transmitting.

Why can't I hear the ultrasonic tone? Ultrasonic sounds are high frequency and inaudible to most humans.

Can my dog become desensitized to the ultrasonic sound? Your dog can become familiar with the ultrasonic sound after extended use of the product. In order to avoid this, try not using the product on your dog for a few days.


A low battery is indicated when the LED is red.

Customer Reviews
Bark Genie Handheld Bark Control is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it!!! I was very leery about purchasing this but knowing how wonderful PetMeds is about returns I had nothing to lose. My pet's area is fenced in with block wall and when my lab/german shepherd mix barks the noise is deafening! The first time I used the Genie on her, she immediately stopped barking, put her head down knowing she was being naughty and just calmly walked away. All I have to do know is show it to her and she behaves, LOL! Loving it! I feel like I'm in control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for every dog Just like people all dogs are different, this is a great hand held anti-bark control if its right for you dog. I have several dogs but 2 of the dogs barks are so annoying it's like nails on a chalkboard. When I first used it I was unsure of coarse of the effects, but the two dogs I wanted it to work on the most, it did and it works great. My other dogs that just bark every so often, their barks are not annoying, but when it goes off it gets their attention but they still may bark, but my two annoying ones like I said it worked great. So if it will work on your dog you will be very satisfied with this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lab/Border Collie I was so excited to get this product... It was very convenient to put a lanyard on it to keep around my wrist when walking my dog. First try worked great, but perhaps my dog is too smart and repositioned her ears when barking because it wasn't effective on our second, third, etc. walks. It might work for the smaller dogs, but not for the bigger dogs it would seem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works very well This works better than anything else I've tried. It takes a few times of activating the BARK GENIE on occasion but overall it works very well. She will at least not bark as often as before I bought this and will come running back to me instead of keeping on barking. Have been using this for a year or so now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money in my case. This sounded great so we bought one. We have two dogs, both are a lab mix, this thing has had NO affect on them. I might as well be whistling into the wind. They don't even acknowledge it's existence, in fact when I do use it they want to sniff it, "while in use."

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for my two! I was so hopeful when this came in the mail. I have two Chihuahuas. The first one didn't have a barking problem until I introduced the second one. He barks at everything and taught the older one bad habits. The Bark Genie slightly worked on the older one at least he would turn and look at me. The younger one didn't miss a beat and just kept barking. Reading the other reviews it seems to not work on Chihuahuas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't believe it worked! This thing is amazing - it WORKS! Our black lab loves to bark at birds in trees - annoying all the neighbors. She goes from tree to tree every time she is outside. The first time we used it she stopped immediately. The second time she barked once then stopped as soon as we used it. The third time she looked at us and went off and did her business. I can't believe something so simple and inexpensive is so effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't believe it works! My 11 year old dachshund had become quite bad at barking. I spent most of my time yelling at him to stop. I ordered this with not much hope that it would really work. Well, in less than 24 hours he is 90% better! Only negative is you have to be close for it to work but I can deal with that. Love it!

My Doberman whines when he travels in a vehicle. Will this product also help with the whining?
Asked by: Jan
I have tha same issue, whining in the car. The collars + remote control with multiple choices for beeping, ultrasonic, vibrating, & shock seem to work. It scared the chihuahua, only need to say “collar” & he stops barks or whines.  I needed to use the vibrate mode for whining a few car rides as he was so anxious he ignored the collar until a few vibrates. The pit bull we shocked once because nothing else phased him. Now just show him the remote control or put his collar on & he’s quiet all day. It only took one shock on each dog at their varied strengths to correct behavior, & did not hurt, only scared them. I did both to myself & no pain but is weird unexpected, “shocking” sensation. That’s my suggestion for the only ultrasonic sound device they got familiar with & could care less. The loud beeps we can hear worked better than ultrasonic on our dogs, & vibrate only on small dog, but that’s why I say get one with multiple modes & strengths for every dog is different and will respond disparately to the discrete modes. Good luck!

Has anyone ever tried it on their cat?  It has worked wonders on my rat terriers barking and I have shared your website with many; however I have a few friends that need something to train their cats with. 

Asked by: Gagamama
The labeling of this product advises for dogs only. It is not know if it is effective for cats

How far does it really reach?

In your answers you mentioned more than once that the sounds reaches 50 feet. However the pictured box says 15 feet. Which is it really?
Asked by: SharPeiMom
The Bark Genie Handheld #11576 is 15 ft and the Bark Genie Automatic #11577 is 50 ft. Both items use to be on the same page sorry for any confusion.

Dog Kennel

We have a dog kennel that was moved in within 150 feet from our house. It houses over 300 dogs. Do you any product that will stop the continuous barking of all these poor dogs.
Asked by: Fed up
Not info re: product. You should check with the city, a realtor and the SPCA and have this kennel checked out. Have to be sure animals are being taken care of and if it was legal to have it built so close to your property. Good luck.

How long does the high frequency pitch stay on once barking stops?

Asked by: Ed
YOU control the length of time that the device's sound is on. I have never found it necessary to use for more than just a second or two. Its purpose is to serve as a DISTRACTION so you can then reinforce with the correction.

Will repeated use harm my dog's hearing?

Is the pitch hurtful?
Asked by: Linda
As the instructions indicate, the device is not intended to be sounded for a long time. The sound it makes is barely perceptible to me, and I don't operate it for more than a second. It is intended to serve as a DISTRACTION to the barking so you can then correct the action.

What does "non-evasive" mean?

If this is unpleasantly shrill in order to curb the barking, will it damage the dog's hearing with repeated use? Has it been clinically tested?
Asked by: Linda
"Non-evasive" means that they don't proof read their copy very well. :) I have a feeling that they meant to say "non-invasive". Which, in a medical context, refers to a procedure that doesn't involve putting anything inside the body. Which doesn't really make a lot of sense, here, but what I think they were trying to say is that the volume and effect of the ultrasonic tone is modest, and doesn't disturb the dog unnecessarily, beyond what's needed to get them to stop barking.

Small space, like a car

That the Bark Genie can work up to 15 feet seems to be stressed. We need it in the car. Does this intensify the level of sound by being enclosed in a car?
Asked by: Santa Fe Kate
Thank you for your question. It is not suggested to use this in a car but we have a handheld Bark Genie that can be used in the car.
