Does your dog bark too much? Maybe your neighbor's dog barks too much? Now there is a solution to excessive barking - even if it's coming from someone else's dog!
This decorative electronic birdhouse is really an Ultrasonic Bark Control Device to control nuisance barking! Designed to look like a birdhouse, the PetSafe Ultrasonic Bark Control System can hang in a tree, on a fence post, or anywhere outside.
When the Ultrasonic Bark Control Birdhouse detects excessive barking the microphone picks up the barking and activates the unit. This results in a safe ultrasonic sound that is audible to dogs, but not to humans. The offending dog hears the sound and will stop barking. Safe and effective for all breeds and sizes of dogs.

I have two dachshunds who will bark until hoarse. My neighbor has been very kind and patient. I got the ultrasonic birdhouse, didn't tell her, and when I asked after a week, so thought we had been on vacation and didn't know the dogs were even at the house! So we've gone from 5.5 hours of solid barking, to "gee, I didn't know they were at home." I didn't want a shock collar, and this works brilliantly. Light, decent looking, and completely worth the money!

When my dog was within a few feet of the bark house, it helps. Once he got a few feet away, it did nothing. I would need to line the fence with these. I was sure hoping it would have helped, no such luck.

Kind of hard to judge whether it works or not. Sometimes it seems to work, other times it does not seem to be effective.

This product worked for me and did exactly what they promised it would! Battery life is phenominal!

This product worked great on our own dogs. They stopped barking in just a few days. However, it hasn't helped quiet down our neighbor's dogs, even when less than 15 feet from them. Either they're deaf, or extremely stubborn.

We read the reviews before we purchased and were very excited to hear how it had worked for others. We have 3 dogs (ranging from 8 lb to 60 lb). Unfortunately, it did not stop our dogs from barking. It stopped their barking the first two days and then did nothing to stop them. We moved it to different parts of the yard but it still did no good.

I read mixed reviews, but took a chance anyway. We were at our wits end with our neighbors complaining and threatening us. The dogs only barked (endlessly!) while we were gone. How do you train a dog when you're gone?? I bought small shock collars and tried it out on myself and immediately returned them. NO WAY!! The very first time we tried this at the lowest setting, we were amazed. So were our neighbors. I knew it was working when we pulled in the driveway after a couple hours of shopping. NOT A PEEP!!! What a weight off our shoulders . We no longer feel guilty about going out. The neighbors are happy and the dogs are perfectly normal, healthy and happy!!!! Great product!! Only drawback is that we have to unplug the phone before we leave, so the ring doesn't trigger the tone.

"Bought this product out of desperation to have neighbor's dog stop barking. It worked! They no longer leave their dog outside in the front yard, where it would get too excited and never stop barking! I can even move the birdhouse to the backyard on those days when needed!
Great product and totally brought down the stress levels for my family."

I use this product at night time and it has worked perfectly. This surpassed my expectations.

"We purchased the Petsafe Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark Control around April 1. It works like a charm. Not only did it stop our minni schnauzer from barking, it also stopped our neighbors' 3 dogs from barking. Our neighbors were going to purchase the same model because it was so effective, but didn't need to because our unit keeps their dogs quiet also!
Didn't have good luck with the indoor model, though. Doesn't deter him as effectively from barking as did the outdoor model."
