Your earbuds won't be the only ones thanking you; your neighbor's will, too! Eliminate your pet pal's nuisance barking with the PetSafe Elite Outdoor Bark Control. The built-in microphone detects barks from up to 50 feet away and emits an ultrasonic noise that's aggravating to dogs but humans can't hear. Two programmable timers allow you to automatically turn the unit on and off at desired times.

Key Benefits

  • Built-in timer has two programmable on/off presets
  • Uses high-frequency ultrasonic sound to disrupt nuisance barking, great alternative to static correction
  • Detects bark up to 50 feet away, coverage projects in a cone shape of about 150 degrees in front of the speaker and works on all dogs within hearing range
  • Attractive and weatherproof construction designed to look like a birdfeeder
  • Uses one 9-volt battery (not included) with a two-color LED for good/low battery indication. Average battery life is 2 months depending on how often the dog barks

  • Item Number


  • Place the unit no higher than 5 feet from the ground.
  • Face the front of the device towards the dog.
  • Make sure there aren't any large objects between the device and the dog. The sound doesn't travel well through fences, trees, or walls.
  • Don't use this bark control device on dogs who are deaf or hard of hearing. They won't respond to the ultrasonic tone.
  • Turn off the device when not in use. This helps prevent dogs from becoming desensitized to the sound.
  • Add additional units to cover areas larger than 1/4 acre.
  • Don't use this product inside your home. The ultrasonic sound will bounce differently indoors.
  • To improve battery life, use the timers to turn on the unit only when the dog barks or turn the unit off when not in use.
  • While the unit is weatherproof, it shouldn't be submerged in water. If water enters the microphone, the device might not work until the microphone dries.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use the Indoor Bark Control outdoors?

No, we do not recommend keeping the product outdoors. PetSafe® Outdoor Bark Control products are weatherproof and can work up to 50 feet from a barking dog.

Can I use the outdoor bark control indoors?

We do not recommend using the product indoors. Even though the ultrasonic sound is inaudible to humans and only emitted when the dog barks, some people have experienced discomfort after extended time with the unit activating in a smaller indoor space. The PetSafe® PBC-1000 is an ultrasonic product that can be used indoors.

How does the Ultrasonic Outdoor Bark Control system work?

The Outdoor Bark Control unit contains a microphone that senses a dog's bark. When it does, it emits an ultra high frequency that annoys but doesn’t harm your dog.

Is ultrasonic bark control effective on all dogs?

Ultrasonic bark correction is often the best bark control solution for many dogs. However, it will not work for all dogs because of factors like age, hearing ability, and temperament. When setting up the device, make sure there are no obstacles between the dog and the device. Also, make sure that the birdhouse speaker is less than 5 feet high and is facing the direction of the barking dog.

I can’t hear the ultrasonic sound.

The ultrasonic sound is not usually audible to humans.

  • Wonderful!

    This thing is amazing! It has eliminated 80% of our dogs notorious barking. We have Irish setters that are extremely vocal.

  • Worked Right Away

    By on

    I programmed this device to be active from 10:30pm-7am when my dogs tend to bark at raccoons. Within two days it had cut out 99% of non-essential barking! (They still bark if they hear a coyote howl, but stop pretty quickly now.) Now my husband can sleep, and the neighbors are not complaining! My dogs: 1 German Shepard 1 Shepard/collie mix

  • This product worked for us.

    By on

    We adopted an older German Shepherd. He will bark loudly and repeatedly at times and only listened to us briefly before barking again. He was very affected by this product so we only use for short periods of time like 15 minutes then shut off. We use it when nothing else will stop the barking. It worked.

  • Petsafe Elite Outdoor Bark Control

    By on

    My dogs stopped barking right away. This product worked for me. My two St. Bernards liked to amuse themselves by barking at someone walking by on one side of the house and then race around to the other side of the house and bark some more. I put these cute little birdhouses on the fence on both sides of the house. The barking stopped immediately. Saint Bernards are very sensitive dogs.

  • Doesn't work

    By on

    Been using the product for a week now and dogs bark just like they did before. It seems to be working as the lights come on when a dog barks, but doesn't seem to be effective at decreasing or stopping barking.

  • It truly works!

    By on

    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!.

  • Annoying barking at 5 am

    By on

    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!
