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

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
