Rated 5 out of 5 by Janie Ssscat Works!
Purchased this product in hopes of deterring my dog from a specific location and it works. The sound and the air sprayed is enough to startle and send the dog away and remind him if he comes back. It's safe and easy to use, a great training tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by catsma Helps prevent cats marking
I'd tried everything I could think of to combat my problem of finding cat urine along the baseboards, particularly in corners and doorways. There is a rivalry going on between two of my cats - I'm pretty sure it's territorial. It took buying 4 of these cans and moving them in as soon as I found and cleaned the urine, but I think we are in the home stretch. The cats don't tend to go back to places where they met the activated motion sensor. I'd say it took about 3 or 4 episodes in each location before they got the message and moved to a new spot. Now they may be starting to connect the act of peeing out of the box with getting an unwelcome surprise. This product has been the only remedy that seems to come close to solving the problem. I hope that the Ssscat deterrent will continue to do the job.
Oh, and when one of the new cans failed to work properly (it seemed to be empty from the beginning) I emailed the company and they sent me another one at no charge right away. Good customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by problemcat Great customer service!
I bought two PetSafe Ssscat Pet Deterrent Training Aids from Chewy & couldn't be happier. I set them up right away & noticed one of them wasn't working, I called Chewy the next day & let them know about the problem. I couldn't be happier with the customer service. I received a new one in the mail within two days & it works!! I am so happy with this product, it really works with a problem cat of mine. I'm so happy that I bought it from Chewy, the customer service couldn't be better! Thank you

Rated 2 out of 5 by Wayne Great idea
I wanted to keep our new cat away from the door so she wouldn"t get out. Inside Cat. Our can wasn't full that came with the sprayer. The sprayer sensor doesn't work all the time , we tryed all highs of the sensor and the can empties very fast. The cat didn't like the sray and is a good idea, Needs some work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 4leggedlover This product great idea, just needs a little adjustment.
The product would be great if it sprayed every time the pet goes by it. When it does work properly, the animals avoid the area real fast. If I move where I have it located, when the animals see where I put it they will avoid going by it. The sensor needs to be stronger, so it will spray each time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ScuttledCuttle So far so good.
The good: the spray does indeed deter my cat from going past the unit, thus keeping her out of the kitchen. The can seems to be lasting a good while, as I've had it up and running for almost two weeks and it's still working.
The average: as expected from a smart cat, she knows very well that the strange object I put on the floor (and keep turning off and on so I can go into the kitchen myself) is what's spraying the air. So if I move it at all, she knows she can go into the kitchen unimpeded. While just having the can sitting there, even in the off position, can keep her away for a while, she does randomly test it to see if it's still working and then it feels like we're back to square one.
The bad: the sensor doesn't always seem to work, as I've walked past it myself after forgetting it was turned on with no results, then when I leave and walk past it a second time, it sprays me. It's also hard to tell when batteries need recharging. Still, for the price it's a pretty good deal and works well most of the time.

Used this in the hallway to keep my cat from pooping in the hall. It works like 20% of the time and she poops right in front the thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by corockclimber Not what I expected.
This product works when it wants too! Cat walk right up to it, sniffed it then walked away with nothing happening. Then I walked up to check if it was on and it worked. This happened several times since I purchased it!
