PetSafe Elite Outdoor Bark Control
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.

Maybe or Maybe not
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.

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.

When neighbors let us know our one yr olds had been barking excessively.... we started looking for something to help train them not to bark. I do not like placing a shock collar on my four legged children! So after reading reviews we decided on the PetSafe Elite Outdoor Bark Control! One because you could set the times for it to be active and times when it would not be active. Oh my what a difference this Bark Control has made! My neighbors were amazed at how quickly the puppies quit barking!

Helps but did not totally eliminate barking.
We have the outdoor and indoor products. They have helped reduce our schnauzer's barking but when someone is near our back gate or front door, he still barks like crazy. Sometimes he starts to bark and then stops. I'm wondering if his high pitched barking cancels out the ultrasonic sound at times. The product is easy to use and seems to be well made. If you're having a problem with barking, I think this product is worth a try. Chewy definitely has a great price for this product.

Don't bother. It does not work, and is silly. My mistake even thinking to order it.

It has been nearly 2 weeks and my dogs are still barking. I must mention I do have very large dogs that might be a part of it.
