Can I use it with a puppy?
We do not recommend using the Dog Silencer MAX on puppies under 1-year of age. Please consult your veterinarian.
Can I use it with an invisible or electric fence?
We recommend you do not use any 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.

How does the remote control work?
Your purchase includes a keychain-size remote control which can be used to activate the device manually. The remote can be used up to 75 feet (23m) away from the main unit, and is convenient for on-demand training.
Should I use batteries or electricity? How long does the battery last?
You can use batteries or electricity — it's your choice. But for best results we do recommend using the included AC adapter, especially in the early stages of training when the dog will be barking more. Battery life will vary depending on the weather, the quality of the batteries used, as well as how often the unit is being activated.
If you need to use batteries, rechargeables are a great option to save money. We also offer a new Solar Panel add-on!
Note: Please do not use aftermarket AC adapters ( those not purchased from Good Life® ) as this will void your product warranty.
Will it hurt or harm the dog in any way?
No it will not. All Good Life products are designed to be safe and humane, and they are only designed to stop excess or nuisance barking. The high-pitched training sounds are not painful or harmful, and if a dog really needs to bark, he can. They will not stop a dog from barking out of instinct (at an intruder for example).
Although not harmful, the sounds emitted by our products may be too intense for puppies under one year of age as they are still developing their hearing. Please consult your veterinarian before using this product with puppies.
How long before I should expect results?
While many customers see the effects within a few days, this unit is a training device and will depend on how quickly the dog associates the sound with his barking. Some customers also report the dog barking at the unit, or barking more than usual in the first few days.
This is a normal part of the learning process. We strongly recommend you give the device two to three weeks to see full results.
Does it have to be on all the time?
For best results, the unit needs to be on and in use near the dog at all times (it will go into standby mode when the dog is not barking). For best results, the unit needs to be left on so that it can activate consistently each time the dog barks.
What is the range/angle/coverage area?
The ultrasonic sounds will emit in a cone shape of about 130°, or about 65° on each side. The sound is directional, and will have the best training results if the device is pointed directly at the dog(s) you wish to train.
