Control outdoor nuisance barking - even your neighbor's dog. Triggered by the sound of a bark the unit emits an ultrasonic tone to interrupt any dog's barking within the designated area.

How to set up
The Birdhouse UltraSonic Unit should be placed facing the dog and within range of the dog. The unit is designed with provisions for hanging or mounting and should be positioned at a height of no more than 5 feet. This unit can also stand alone. For best results, the area between the Birdhouse UltraSonic Unit and the dog should be free of any large obstacles.
How it works
When the Birdhouse UltraSonic Unit is within range of constant barking, an internal microphone picks up the sound and the unit is activated. The unit then emits an ultrasonic sound. The ultrasonic sound can only be heard by the dog. Startled by the high-pitched sound, the dog should stop barking, as he will associate his bark with this unpleasant noise.

How the PetSafe® Birdhouse UltraSonic Unit Works
When the Birdhouse UltraSonic Unit is within range of a barking dog, an internal microphone
picks up the sound and the unit is automatically activated. The PetSafe Birdhouse UltraSonic Unit emits an ultrasonic sound. The ultrasonic sound can be heard by dogs but is silent to humans. Startled by the high-pitched sound that is safe and effective, the dog should stop barking, as he will associate his bark with this unpleasant noise. When the dog stops barking the ultrasonic sound also stops. The PetSafe Birdhouse UltraSonic Unit has 3 sensitivity levels to choose from that indicate what barking level activates the unit and a test mode. It is effective up to 50 feet. Note: If the dog is deaf or hearing impaired, he may not react to the Birdhouse UltraSonic Unit.
Caution: Humans cannot hear the ultrasonic sound; however, precautions should be taken when preparing the Birdhouse UltraSonic Unit for use.
Keep at arm's length away from the human ear to avoid hearing damage if a dog begins barking while you are setting up, mounting or hanging the Birdhouse UltraSonic Unit.
Humans should also avoid standing very close to the Birdhouse UltraSonic Unit when it is on.
