QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What is ultrasonic sound?
Ultrasonic sound is above the hearing range of humans, but is attention grabbing and irritating to dogs. This makes a safe and effective tool for dog training. It takes your dog's focus off of barking and towards the high-pitched sound.
How long before I should expect results?
While many customers see the effects of the Bark Control Pro within a few days, this unit is a training device and will depend on how quickly the dog associates the sound with his barking. We strongly recommend you give the unit two to three weeks to see full results.
If within the first few days you notice your dog barking at the unit or barking more than usual, this is part of the learning process in which the dog associates its bark with the sounds emitting from the Bark Control Pro.
What is “Audio” mode?
When using “Audio” mode, you will hear the Bark Control Pro activate. It's recommended you use this mode when adjusting the bark sensitivity when first setting up the unit. In addition, you can use the audio mode for older dogs or dogs with poor hearing as an alternative to the ultrasonic sound training.
How does the remote control work
Even though the Bark Control Pro can “hear” barking up to 50 feet away, the sound emitted from the unit can travel up to 150 feet in a clear, straight path. If the dog is 100 feet away, for example, his barking alone probably won't activate the unit. But, pressing the remote control will activate the Dog Silencer manually and the dog will still be able to hear the corrective sound.
In addition, you can turn the Bark Control Pro microphone sensitivity all the way down and activate your Bark Control Pro using only the remote control. Not only does this allow you to train dogs over 50 feet away, but you can customize your own dog's training. This could include staying off furniture, away from the trash and anything else you want to teach your dog to do. The key chain remote works up to 75 feet away from the main unit.
Can the Bark Control Pro be used with an invisible fence?
We recommend you do not use ultrasonic bark control devices in combination with invisible fence systems. This is because the sound frequencies emitted by our bark control devices are very similar to those emitted by the invisible fence collar. This may cause confusion and interfere with the dog's training.
Will it hurt or harm the dog in any way?
The Bark Control Pro uses a high-pitched ultrasound that is designed to “irritate” the dog. It is not designed to cause pain or harm to their ears (we compare it to someone dragging their fingernails on a blackboard). We do not recommend using the Bark Control Pro with puppies under one year of age as they are still developing their hearing. Please consult your veterinarian before using this product with puppies.
The sound from the Bark Control Pro, although irritating, is not designed to hinder 100% of your dog's barking. If your dog “needs” to bark, he can. The Bark Control Pro will not train the dog to stop barking out of instinct (at an intruder for example).
Will this work though fences, walls, windows, or bushes?
The high-pitched ultrasound emitted by the Bark Control Pro will not penetrate any solid objects such as wood fences, windows, walls or thick shrubbery. Sparse trees, window screens, chain link and wrought-iron fences should be okay.
Can I use the Bark Control Pro with a puppy?
We do not recommend using the Bark Control Pro on puppies under 1-year of age. Please consult your veterinarian.
Can I use any AC Adapter?
Do not use any other AC adapter with Bark Control Pro other than the official Bark Control Pro AC adapter. Use of any other AC adapter will void your warranty.
