Is Ultrasonic Bark Control Safe For Puppies

The Science Behind Ultrasonic Bark Control Devices

Ultrasonic devices have been used in dog training for many years. It is an effective and silent way to prevent your dog from barking excessively. When turned on, this device emits a high-pitched sound wave. As a result, only your dog can hear the sound coming from the ultrasonic emitter.

How They Work

Ultrasonic Bark Controls are relatively simple pieces of technology. They can come in various designs, ranging from modern, geometrically shaped accessories to discrete, bird-shaped houses. Whichever you choose, you can be sure that it will flawlessly incorporate itself into the environment. The modern-home bark controls are usually made to look like decorations, i.e. like stones, or air fresheners, while outside bark control is usually shaped like bird feeders.

They work by emitting a high-pitched unpleasant sound that, most of the time, can only be heard by dogs alone. This sound is supposed to deter the dog from barking since it’s relatively unpleasant. Every time your dog will bark while they are in the range of the device, they will get the unpleasant noise reminder that they should halt their barking.

In time, the pup should learn to associate the negative sound with barking. This will, in turn, lead to the dog eventually stopping to bark altogether, since they will want to avoid the high-pitched noise. This process may take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, but it’s a very effective process that works with most dog types and dog breeds.

If you want a quick solution to your dog’s nuisance barking, then an ultrasonic bark control is, in our opinion, the best option.

Are sonic bark collars humane?

Sometimes it is appropriate for dogs to bark (e.g. as a means of communication) in which case the collar punishes them for normal behaviour. Because the collar does not discriminate between problem barking and normal canine behaviour, there is a potential for abuse if the collar is routinely left on for too long.
