Hand Held, Manually Activated Dazer and Pet Agree Use Ultrasound to Train or Scare Off Dogs

Question about the Dog Dazer and the Pet Agree.

Question: "I have a dog who is usually well-behaved until he sees another dog on our walk. Then the barking begins. Also I have been attacked by dogs when I am jogging. How do these devices work? Are they likely to work for me to train my dog and to scare off the aggressive ones? Thanks. Peter."

Answer: The Dazer and the Pet Agree are identical except for the color. These are sturdy, manually activated ultrasonic units that have a belt clip. Each uses a 9 volt battery that can last for years depending upon the frequency of use.

The best training method is to use a stern voice command like "No Bark" simultanously with the use of either device "shot" directly at the dog. Depending upon how intelligent and how stubborn your dog is, training may be fast or slow to stop dog barking. Rarely does the Dazer or the Pet Agree fail to work for training.

UPS, Fed Ex and USPS delivery persons use carry Dazers to ward off aggressive dog attacks. Aggressive dogs seem to respond more quickly to the ultrasound than non-aggressive ones. Using a strong "No" at the same time helps. We've sold hundreds of these units to delivery people and actually sold many to FEMA employees when Micronesia had a typhoon hit years ago.

The Dazer is gray; the Pet Agree is blue. The manufacturer made two colors with two names because the Japanese saw the word Dazer as a cruel word. Actually, the dog is not "dazed" as with a stun gun, just feels discomfort, not permanent injury, from the ultrasonic tone. These units also work with most cats.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely,

Barbara

Why Do Dogs Stop Barking When Ultrasonic Bark Stopping Devices are Used?

by Barbara 11. August 2008 11:45

Question about how ultrasonic bark stop devices work. Regarding PET-BF02-PRO Lentek Super Bark Free PRO Device and Dog Dazer.

Q: "What makes the dog stop barking? Are these products  painful to dogs? " Loretta

Answer: Dogs do not like the ultrasonic tones generated when they bark within the range of the Super Bark Free or similar products, The Dog Dazer generates an ultrasound when you manually activate it: this stops aggressive dogs and usually quiets noisy ones.  The Dazer is a great training device when you add words like "no", "quiet", "come" or whatever you want to use the unit for.

Per the Super Bark Frree instructions: "Dogs learn to associate the loud, irritating sound produced by the unit as being a result of barking and stop barking to stop the Super Bark Free sound. Always remember, the activation microphone in the Super Bark Free just detects sound, it can not tell the difference between different types of sounds. Do not try to instigate barking from your dog to see if the Super Bark Free is working. A dog will always bark if harassed.

Most dogs find that being close to an activated Super Bark Free is very distressing and uncomfortable. Sometimes older dogs or breeds with congenital hearing problems are unable to hear the ultrasonic sounds emitted and ignore the Super Bark Free. This is also true of situations where there is a lot of other noise close to the dogs. The ultrasonic sound emitted is drowned out by the other noise."

Hope this helps. Thanks for your question.

Sincerely,
Barbara
