One of the irritating things that your dog can do is to bark without any reason. This is why there is the need to have an Ultrasonic bark collar in place so that it can control the excessive barking behavior of the dog. This anti barking device is meant to emit a sound that is audible to the dogs and humans thereby teaching the dogs that there is a negative consequence of barking. These sounds may be accompanied with a sharp pain to make the dog stop this behavior even though it is not harmful.
It is important to note that the Ultrasonic bark collar is a type of Petsafe ultrasonic bark control that is very effective in controlling dogs barking habits. In terms of usage, there is the need to install it with the speakers rather pointing back at the dog. This is because you want the noise to go at the dog and not your neighbors. For instance, if it normally runs to the gate and barks at those walking by the device can be installed at the back side of the mail box. The speakers should be pointing to the back of the gate.
It the Ultrasonic bark collar has a timer you can then set this function. This would afford you the opportunity to choose the times at which the sound should blow and other times when you decide to train the dog yourself. At some other hours like during the night it can be off so that it can bark at intruders.
Moreover, the sensitivity of the microphone should be carefully selected on the device. There are some of the devices that come with more than one level. This then helps to send the noise back to the dog when barking has got to a particular decibel point. It is eventually meant to control the barking of the dog.
It is very important that you select a location that is outside and pints into your yard at the sections that the dog normally barks. Indeed it should be at least fifty feet of the dogs playing area. Some of the good locations would be near trees where animals live or in front of gates. Most importantly, the device is not to be used indoors as the sound can be dangerous to the human ear especially children. Therefore put it in locations where would have difficulty in hearing them.
