How does it work? When the Outdoor Bark Control Birdhouse unit is placed within range of a constant barking dog, an internal microphone detects the barking sounds and the unit is activated. The PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control Birdhouse unit emits an ultrasonic sound to stop dogs barking. The ultrasonic sound can only be heard by the dog. When the dog is startled by the high-pitched sound, it should stop barking as it will associate its bark with this unpleasant noise. The PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control unit has 4 settings which includes 3 Sensitivity Levels and a Test Mode. This unit is effective for bark control up to 50 feet.

The PetSafe Deluxe Outdoor Bark Control Birdhouse is an ultrasonic bark deterrent. Cleverly disguised as a birdhouse, the unit senses the dog barking and emits a high pitched noise, inaudible to the human ear, to stop the dog from barking.We bought this product a few weeks ago and the product has yet to function even after we followed all the directions. The batteries were not lasting at all. They would drain within a day or two and eventually would turn off. We troubleshot but had no luck. We have a midsize German shepherd and the dog is immune to this product's effectiveness. Highly recommend not purchasing this product and most likely using a vibrating collar device instead if that's the intent to prevent barking. Overall, I am unhappy with the purchase.

Only problem was our neighbors didn't feel the same. His constant barking at the fence with the neighbors dog was starting to wear on people and to be completely honest us to. I went on the the PetSafe website and after a lot of reading decided on the Elite Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark Control. This product has been life changing!!!! We now have peace in the neighborhood!!! Worked the first night we put it out!! Love the fact that it has a timer. We set it to come only the evening through early morning when the issue was the worst. It was the best money I have ever spent!!!!!! Thanks PetSafe!!!!PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that the Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark Control has failed to meet your expectations. The sound that is emitted from the device is hard for many of us to hear because it is designed to affect your pet's behavior. For the unit to work properly, try to ensure that the the device is facing the dogs. The ultrasonic sound is sent out in an cone-shaped region in from the unit, so the unit may not respond if the dog is behind it, and the dog probably will not hear it. Also, if there are large items in between the device and the pets, the unit will not be able to pick up the barking properly. For indoor barking, we do have a product that may better suit your needs.
