This tastefully designed tabletop device can help safely control your dogs barking from up to 25 feet away. Whenever your pal barks, a 2-second ultrasonic tone correction can be delivered either automatically or manually your choice. No receiver collar is necessary, but your furry friend will learn to associate his barking behaviour with the unpleasant sound (that only he can hear) in no time.
When the Indoor Bark Control unit is within range of a barking dog, an internal microphone picks up the sound.The unit automatically emits an ultrasonic tone that can be heard by dogs but is silent to humans. Startled by the high-pitched tone, the dog should stop barking. In time it will associate its bark with this unpleasant noise.When the dog stops barking, the ultrasonic tone also stops. It is effective up to 25 feet.
You may also use the Indoor Bark Control unit as a remote trainer.When your pet exhibits inappropriate behavior, press the manual control button on top of the unit to emit an ultrasonic tone.The dog should be startled by the high-pitched tone and stop his poor behavior.
Note: If the dog is deaf or hearing impaired, he may not react to the Indoor Bark Control.
Caution: Humans cannot hear the ultrasonic sound; however, precautions should be taken when using the Indoor Bark Control.
• Humans should also avoid standing very close to the Indoor Bark Control when it is operational.
• Not for use by children. • This device is intended for use only with dogs. Never attempt to
use it for any purpose not described in this manual. • All pets in hearing range will be affected by the ultrasonic tone. • Never use the PetSafe® Indoor Bark Control to correct or
eliminate any form of aggressive behavior.We recommend you contact your local veterinarian or professional trainer to determine if your pet might be aggressive.
Place the PetSafe® Indoor Bark Control within 25 feet or less of the dog. When the microphone picks up the constant bark of the dog, it will emit a 2-second high-pitched ultrasonic tone. While the tone cannot be heard by humans, it should startle the dog. Most dogs will understand very quickly that the Indoor Bark Control is disrupting their urge to bark and will relax and stop barking.
You should notice a reduction in the dog’s barking within the first 2 weeks that the Indoor Bark Control is in use. Please note this product may not work on deaf or hearing impaired dogs.
To eliminate other unwanted behavior (i.e. jumping on furniture), the manual activation function can be used.
As soon as your pet begins the earliest sign of misbehavior, press the manual control button. For example, if you want to teach your dog to stay off the couch, press the button as soon as he puts one paw on the seat. Do not wait until he is completely on the couch.
1. Hold the manual button for up to 2 seconds, releasing the button as soon as your pet stops the misbehavior.
2. If your pet has not stopped the misbehavior after 2 seconds of correction, release the manual button; then press it again for up to 2 seconds.
3. Continue this sequence until the misbehavior has stopped. 4. Once the misbehavior has stopped, reward your pet with praise.
