Description

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.
What's Included

PetSafe Deluxe Outdoor Bark Control, Operating Guide.

Instructions
  • 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.
  • Remove the battery before cleaning. Clean the Deluxe Outdoor Bark Control with a damp cloth. Do no use any kind of spray chemicals or solvent to clean.

    This works Great!

    By Trisha on Dec 6, 2020

    My dogs would keep me up at night barking or even wake me or my kids up. I didn't want Bark collars, so I opted for this...I have had this for only 3 nights, but the barking has stopped!! When they do bark it's very minimal. I have it set to only be on during the night time hours, so they are free to bark during the day. I would definitely recommend this!!!

    doesn’t work

    By dontBuy on Jun 12, 2020

    I could not get it to stay on. No matter what I did. I followed the instructions and it still never worked. I don’t even have the box or anything to send it back. Very disappointed

    Did not work for our two dogs

    By Rich on Jun 11, 2020

    This was the third bark control device we tried and it did not reduce their barking. I was hoping that it would work after the first three did not.

    Works GREAT !!!

    By tiredofthenoise on Jan 9, 2020

    We have neighbors on three sides that own dogs (we have two cats that can't get out of our back yard and don't climb the fence, so the cats weren't setting the dogs off) and the two side neighbors have neighbors behind them that own dogs, so when one starts barking it sets off the rest of them and is SO annoying after about 10 minutes of it nonstop; some of these dogs are left alone each day while their people are at work and since we're retired and at home a lot, we had to put up with a lot of noise...they even barked at us out making slight noises when we were gardening! We tried talking to our neighbors about the incessant barking but they were mostly not responsive.

We tried talking to our neighbors about the incessant barking but they were mostly not responsive. We could have reported it as noise pollution and the owners could have been fined or had their dogs removed but we decided to try one of these devices first and it WORKS! We rarely hear any of them bark anymore and when they do it's only for a short time. We can finally enjoy gardening, let our cats out back without them getting spooked and best of all the dog that was constantly trying to dig under our fence has stopped digging and barking...we put it up a year ago and the battery is still going strong, which is great! We wedged ours into place at the very top of the corner of our fence where it meets the side neighbors fence and it seems to be the perfect spot. … more

    Worked Until he really wanted to bark

    By Soso on Dec 3, 2019

    The first week, my lab would bark once and it would deter him. Last night a coyote was on the other side of our fence, he was going ballistic and totally ignored the sonic system. Also, the unit is now missing a rubber grommet over the "select" button. I contacted PetSafe for a replacement grommet. They wouldn't warranty it, only after 10 days of use. They offered to sell me a brand new one. Terrible customer service if you ask me.

    DO NOT BUY THIS

    By GeorgiaDogOwner on Sep 15, 2019

    This device is not effective at stopping dogs from barking. Rather, it just keeps dogs away from an area. Anything and everything sets it off. My quiet garage door opening, quiet talking, the device being moved or jostled in any way, birds chirping, basically anything sets it off. This could be effective if your neighbor has dogs and you want to keep them out of your flower beds. This is NOT meant for a dog owner trying to prevent excessive barking. This was a total waste of money.

    Still waiting

    By Unhappycustomer on Sep 29, 2019

    2 German Shepherds. 1 PetSafe "Elite" Outdoor Bark Control. MORE barking. It says to give it 2 weeks to notice a reduction in barking. Hmmm. Yeah, ok. We've noticed ZERO decrease in our dogs barking or the neighbors 2 dogs that yap at us. This must be a $40 joke or something. GSD's are notorious for doing a "head tilt" when they hear something odd and I haven't seen them do that one single time. I think this is just a really cute birdhouse with flashing lens that serves no other purpose.

    Works well...too well

    By Misty on Jul 8, 2019

    I was very excited to receive this item in the mail. I pulled it out and even grabbed one of the batteries from a smoke detector to try it out. I put the battery in and this is when the problem started. When you put the battery in, the device immediately begins to make noise. My poor pup ran under the table and barked at the device and whined (my house was quiet at the time). So, okay, 'my bad,' I thought, 'maybe my hands on the device made it go off.' I then proceeded to set up the device outside, away from any of my three dogs. Set up was easy. I set it on a low bird feeder hook (about 3 ft from the ground) and aimed it towards where the dogs would be.

I quickly realized this product is /NOT/ intended for people who live in a populated city. My backyard goes right up next to four different homes, three of which have multiple dogs and two of which have multiple children. So my dogs were getting corrections when they were just hanging out chillin'. Even a loud laugh from me or my husband would set the thing off. Don't get me wrong, it works incredibly well. But I would not recommend this if you live anywhere "loud". I would only recommend this to people who have huge backyards, live in /very/ residential areas with very little traffic and no kids living within screaming range. … more

    This thing works!

    By bobbyface on Aug 6, 2019

    I live in an apartment complex with many dogs. One neighbor left her dog at an open window and the dog would bark at every passing person or person walking a dog. I put this device on the fence outside my apartment and he has ceased being a nuisance. He does bark sometimes but quickly stops.

    RETURNING UNFORTUNATELY

    By Angus on Jul 1, 2019

    I purchased the birdhouse along with a handheld device as a bark deterrent for our dogs. The handheld device worked well inside, but it frightened our crew quite a bit. The birdhouse was meant to stop the neighbor's pitbull from tearing at our vinyl fence trying to get to our small chihuahuas. Based on how the Chis reacted to the handheld item i'm afraid the outside deterrent will cause our guys to be afraid to go out to the yard.
