Rated 5 out of 5 by DLD2 Worked Right Away
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

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 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.

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.

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 4 out of 5 by Lovedogs This product worked for us.
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.

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.

Piece of garbage. Completely ineffective. Don't waste your money.
