As Seen On TV, Makes Silence Golden.

Finally a device that will allow you to bark louder than your dogs and keep them cowering in the corner. Every time that I had seen this on the television they were always a little bit expensive. But, when I was strolling through Walgreens waiting for our prescriptions to be ready.  I found this on a shelf all by itself for only 9.99, this did not include a AC adapter. This only uses one 9 volt battery to get this to operate, there is no adapter unless you want to pay an extra 9.99 for the adapter and you would have to send away for it. Once we got this home and installed the battery, all of our dogs cried foul, the instantly went to their corners with their tails between their legs. They never knew what hit them.

Description
This whole unit only weighs a total of 3.8 ounces and this includes the wall mount that this comes with. It is 5" from the top to the bottom and 1 5/8" from side to side, and from the front to the back it is 1" thick. When you first look at the front you will see five horizontal lines that act as a speaker which emit ultrasonic noises that is only audible to dogs ears. The other thing that you will notice is a 1/8" hole that act as the microphone which will pick up the dogs barking, no matter if you have a big one or small one.

On the left side you will see two red slide buttons, one of which will operate the o/off function. The other slide button will allow you to change the sensitivity frequency from high to low. On the right side there is another hole which will allow you to plug in the AC adapter if you choose to purchase one. If you pull this out of its mounting tray and turn it around you will see the battery cover. To install the battery (9 Volt) all you have to do is slide it in the downward motion and plug the battery into the right terminals and then close this back up and turn it on. They recommend that you use an alkaline battery for a better life of the battery.

Experience
We have two Miniature Schnauzers and one German Shepherd and they were thrown aback when we brought this home. You can either mount this on the wall or move it around. We chose to just move this around because it only has a maximum range of twenty feet on high, when this is on low the range will only be ten feet.

Other than the wire that is attached to the adapter this unit is totally wireless. You can carry this around inside of your pocket and it will still work. If your dogs are like ours the will at first act a little weird until they get the idea in their head not to bark and every little thing. This worked on our dogs immediately as soon as we put the battery in and turned it on.

We were wondering if this really was working that well so, we turned it off and they started barking again. So, an answer to our question does something this cheap really work, yes is the answer. If you have a large house or area then you can simply purchase more than one of these to efficiently work in your areas. Right now we are getting by with only one of these units.

Conclusion
If you have an annoying little dog that barks at even the littlest sound then this is the thing for you. Everyone has ten dollars in their pocket, and you can make it a lot quieter around your house with one of these units at your beckon call. We prefer to leave this un-mounted because of  the ease of use that this offers. I usually do not believe in these products that they offer on the "as seen on TV" because most of the time they are just gimmicks. But, in this case this is the real McCoy and actually works and is worthy of five stars.

No damage to the ears that I can tell but I cannot hear it to be able to tell. I only gets them mad and makes them hide.

I saw this ad on TV and was concerned with how they get the results....does it damage the dog's ears at all, etc? It's good to know that it actually works...now, if I can somehow mail it to my neighbor, we'd be in business LOL! Thanks for letting us know that it actually works!

Any try this yet? I am reluctant to expose my dog to this until I have gotten some reliable advice. I can adjust my rating later.
