“Balance the Bark” Review

Dog Silencer - Rating 5 stars!

Ok y'all, Listen up! By the time I found this barking solution I was on my last straw (so I felt). Relatable? I had a Neighboor tell me I'm ‘that person’ with the barking dogs! I was so embarrassed and frustrated because of all the work and energy I put into raising proper animals. We only know what we around to hear and see with our fur babies.

After trying another device (below) that did not work at all [see original article  ]. I came across the Dog Silencer! This is an amazing device. It is diverse unlike most because you can use it indoors and outdoors. Meaning it can work wherever you go and also on neighborhood dogs that have bothersome barking. The concept is that it emits ultrasonic sound waves for a short period of time when barking is detected.

Pros

It works and provides fast results. It has various features, accessories, and ‘pro’ versions for longer distance range. My favorite features are the settings: auto, manual, range, and sound humans can hear. It comes with a remote that you can use to control when it goes off.
Tip: this is a great tool for behavioral training also such as jumping on the sofa. The mode where humans can hear when it goes off is great for testing functionality, for dogs that need extra enforcement or who are loosing their hearing (😢).

Cons

Are the sensitivity for small areas. I have mine in a 1 bedroom condo on the lowest mode and it seems to be too sensitive to noises that go on in the house. For example, if a door closes loudly it will emit the noise. Due to this I keep mine on manual and keep the remote by me.

Overall I am 100% satisfied with this device. I have not gotten any complaints from neighbors since implementing this and their barking and behavior has changed dramatically in less than a week. Good Life Ultimate Bark Coltrol (brand) also has the same concept in a collar. Since I have two dogs it was more cost effective for me to purchase this device and better for training purposes to not create an association to an object correcting them. Also perfect for travel. Worth the investment!
