Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t work It worked for the first week, I have my two dogs in a yard in the city it doesn’t work on. Nor does it work on my neighbouring dogs that bark. Waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LED turns red when humans talk The LED turns red when humans talk - which means it's emitting the ultrasonic sound right? Why is it doing this? And yes - battery is brand new.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps somewhat Hard to tell because it only has a perimeter of so far, helps to keep the dogs somewhat quieter!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay A tad disappointed. Not working that well. Started well, but only in the beginning. 2nd week, it didn't seem to phase the dogs. Bought two to make sure we cover the range, but doesn't seem to help. It also drains the batteries pretty fast.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from May create other problems! Can create other problems! By BeagleMom on Feb 16, 2020 I bought this brand new and verified working and used it on lowest setting. Unfortunately, my Beagle boy could care less about the noise. But it definitely works since the group barking stopped, but my Beagle girl came in and hid in her crate, and my Plott hound mix hid under coffee table trembling for hours. Now both girls are scared to go outside and I have to physically take them out. As soon as my Beagle boy barked once (and machine was off) my Plott tried desperately to get in the door and started shaking. Next day and girls are still nervous, machine is off and put away, and my girl Beagle peed inside rather than telling me she needed to go out. It may have curbed the barking, but dealing with 2 scared dogs is not worth it. Now I need to make outside positive again and work to get their confidence back. Better to work with a trainer on barking if it is your own dog, and reward with treats or toys when they get quiet on command. In the mean time, if just occasional to alert that someone is coming up to fence or house, they can bark. And I don't let them stay outside if they start barking at everything moving- like squirrels or dogs way down the street. While it may work for some, not worth "ruining" your dog by causing fear or pain for doing what comes natural to dogs. I didnt realize that before buying it and wished I had thought more about it first. Positive reinforcement is a much better way to encourage wanted behavior in your dog.

Questions

Will it go threw a vinyl fence

Asked by: Tim m
The unit should be placed outside within range of your dog (50 ft. max). The unit can be hung or mounted and should be positioned no higher than 5 feet. The unit can stand alone, be placed in a tree, hang from a pole, on a fence post, etc. For best results, the area between the unit and the dog should be clear and free of obstacles.

How far can this bark control birdhouse be from the dog to work. Such as a dog in the neighbors yard?

Asked by: Darlene
Thank you for your question. The unit should be placed outside within range of your dog (50 ft. max). The product has 3 range setting. Begin use of unit on low sensitivity (15 feet range) and only increase to medium sensitivity (30 feet range) if the dog does not respond. Increase to high sensitivity (50 feet range) if your dog does not respond to medium sensitivity.

What is PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control Birdhouse?

The PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control Birdhouse stops unwanted barking by your dog or neighboring dogs. The unit automatically detects barking and emits an unpleasant, yet safe ultrasonic sound to stop excessive barking. The unit is housed in an attractive, weatherproof birdhouse shape and has a range of 3 settings. The unit contains a two-color LED battery life indicator. One 9-volt alkaline battery is needed for operation (not included).

For:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • Ultrasonic sound stops unwanted barking
  • 3 range settings
  • Internal microphone detects barking up to 50 feet away
  • Durable and weatherproof for outdoor use
  • Attractive birdhouse exterior with multiple mounting options
  • Two-color LED battery life indicator
  • Uses one 9volt alkaline battery (not included)
  • Safe for dogs of all sizes

How it Works:

The PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control Birdhouse contains an internal microphone that automatically detects dog barking. The unit emits a safe, high pitched ultrasonic sound detectable only to dogs. The dog will learn to stop barking to avoid the unpleasant sound.

Cautions:

For use outdoors only. Keep unit at arm's length from human ears. Humans should not stand too close to the device while testing. It is recommended to begin training at the lowest sensitivity. Gradually increase intensity if your dog does not respond.

Directions:

For in-depth installation details, please read the PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control Birdhouse manual.

  • The unit should be placed outside within range of your dog (50 ft. max). The unit can be hung or mounted and should be positioned no higher than 5 feet. The unit can stand alone, be placed in a tree, hang from a pole, on a fence post, etc. For best results, the area between the unit and the dog should be clear and free of obstacles.
  • Begin use of unit on low sensitivity (15 feet range) and only increase to medium sensitivity (30 feet range) if the dog does not respond. Increase to high sensitivity (50 feet range) if your dog does not respond to medium sensitivity. Test unit to verify it is working properly.
  • Inserting and removing battery: The unit uses a replaceable 9-volt battery (not included). The battery door is located on the back of the unit. Pull battery door open and insert the 9-volt battery with the positive side to the right. Replace the battery door by positioning the top edge first, and snap the bottom of battery door into place. Average battery life is 2 months, depending on how often the dog barks. To conserve battery life, turn to the OFF position when the unit is not in use.
  • The LED indicator displays good/low battery life. Good battery equals 1 green flash every 5 seconds. Low battery equals 3 red flashes every 5 seconds. No light indicates it is time to replace the battery. The red light is solid when emitting the ultrasonic sound. When in test mode, the red light will flash if battery is low.
  • Testing the unit: Turn the mode switch to TEST. Hold the unit with the indicator light facing towards you. The unit should be arm's length away from your mouth. In order to trigger the unit, make a loud "woof" sound toward the microphone. The LED light will flash red and there will be an audible sound to indicate that it is functioning properly. If the indicator light does not flash and there is no audible sound, ensure that the battery is properly installed and/or replace the battery. Return the mode switch to low sensitivity before using the unit.Note: The test mode is not intended for normal operation. If the unit is left in test mode, it can send false signals and may reduce battery life.
Tip:

The unit is weatherproof, however, if water enters the microphone it may disrupt the unit's operation. The microphone will work properly once dry.
