Bark Stop Ultrasonic Bark Deterrent Overview
Is your dog’s incessant barking have you scrambling for an effective bark deterrent? Then the Bark Stop Pro by Aspectec might be the right product for you.
There are many collar oriented products on the market that promise to stop your dog from barking using electric shocks. But the Bark Stop Pro can be used for multiple dogs at once and without resorting to shock therapy.
Bark Stop Pro Review
Barking is a dog’s natural response to many things and discouraging barking at any volume can make your dog feel very alone and isolated. Shock collars may seem to get results but will lead to trust issues and possibly depression in your pet, according to pet psycologists. By using ultrasonic noises that trigger in response to a dog’s bark, you can gently dissuade your dog from being loud but do so in a humane way.
The Bark Stop has three very useful modes, making it suitable for a wide range of needs. You can set it to activate in response to motion, barking or simply have it set to emit the ultrasonic noise at all times. The device’s sensitivity to barking can be changed, allowing your dog to express themselves without becoming a barking nuisance. The deterrent’s happy customers report that the device has helped calm nervous dogs who are now much happier and easier to manage.
At the back of the device, you will find a range of settings that can be adjusted until you find the set up that works for you. Because every dog is different, you will need to tinker with the volume, duration and frequency settings of the ultrasonic sound in order to get the result that you want. As with humans, a dog’s hearing ability decreases over time so older dogs may need a lower frequency setting.
Similarly, if you want to use this device to keep pests out of the garden, do some research into what frequencies a particular animal can actually hear, or see our FAQ page. Your problem may not be that the ultrasonic device does not work but that it is simply inaudible at its current setting.
The device can be powered using two C batteries or can be plugged into a power source. It can even be plugged into a car’s cigarette lighter so not only is it useful around the house and garden but can also be used to keep your dog quiet during car journeys. When you are placing it around your property, the device can be easily hung up using its keyhole slots. It is quite a discrete looking box, so should not stand out obtrusively and is lightweight enough to be moved around easily as required.
Another outstanding feature of this unit is its ability to be activated via remote control. I find this particularly useful for when you’re trying to enjoy the outdoors but the dogs are simply being too noisy.
A word of caution if you intend to use this device on a neighbor’s dog, and who hasn’t read this far into the review and not entertained the thought? The temptation to use a bark deterrent against a dog other than your own can run high at times but as a rule of thumb I’d caution against it. As pet owners we are protective of our animals and taking measures to train or punish a neighbor’s pet may not be well received. But as a hint, perhaps you pick up a unit to give to your neighbor. We won’t tell.
