Rated 5 out of 5 by Meise Definitely Works!
I have a 120 lb yellow lab and inherited a 10 lb sh*tzu mix. every morning around 7:00am they greet the neighbor dog, 65 lb black lab, at the fence and all three bark insistently. hung this PetSafe Elite Outdoor Bark Control about 3' off the ground (suggests no more than 5' high) and 10' from the rendez-vous. on day one, the little 10 lb did not complete one bark while the other two labs barked maybe twice before stopping. it's been 3 weeks and the dogs still meet at the fence...the little one does not bark at all and the labs bark anywhere from 3 to 5 times and then give up due to the annoying ultrasonic noise from the Elite bark control. My guess is that both labs would stop completely however, they do not have a brain! I'd highly suggest this product plus the indoor model would most likely be a dream come true...especially for the little to mid-sized dogs.

I bought this because of an outdoor barking problem with two yorkies and a westiepoo. These three will stand watch and bark at anything that moves, that includes our neighbors or even a squirrel passing by. I bought this in hopes it would quiet them down to the nice lil fur babies I know they can be. Well here are the results. My male yorkie stopped immediately while the other two kept right on barking. He was so terrified I found him hiding under the bed, in which he has never gone before, the poor baby was trembling. I stopped using it after the second trail because it was so unfair for him to react like that while the other two were still in bark mode. So I guess it depends on the dog and maybe even the number of dogs you are trying to keep quiet. I have purchased the petsafe elite little dog bark control collars. They work very well on each one of my lil barkers. Problem solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chien It truly works!
I love being able to set on/off times on this..and it truly works great to stop my neighbors' 2 Yorkies from keeping me awake nights. I set it for my bedtime (about 8 p.m. I'm 81) and have it go off at 7 a.m. as that is my usual time to be up and at 'em! They can bark the day away on the other hours!.

A decent looking birdhouse with blinking lights and a battery you get to feed it! Absolutely worthless! Followed all instructions to the T. NOTA Save your money!

Rated 3 out of 5 by scott611 not sure
I'm not sure the birdhouse is going to work, but it's only been a week so we will see. The neighbors dog continues to bark so it's hard to tell. I'll give the product another week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Laurie Annoying barking at 5 am
I purchased this because my neighbor lets their dog out at 5 am and lets him bark and bark. I set the timer to only have the "alarm" sound between 5 and 7:15 am so that I could sleep until my alarm goes off. It has really stopped the non stop barking. He barks once and stops immediately and all is quiet until I have to get up. I only want it during the early hours as it is hard to work 9 hour days on only a few hours of sleep. The timer is AWESOME!!! I love it because I really only need the early morning hours covered as I am trying to sleep. I don't care if the dogs bark during the day and evening.. This has been a life saver! I am able to get proper sleep now!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Aussies My dog found this amusing. Not a deterrent.
This did not work at all. Didn't affect my barker even a little bit. He never slowed down his barking and I'll bet my other dogs were getting quite aggravated with the annoying sound. For me, this product was a complete waste of money. Moving on to try a bark collar.
