No it will not. All Bark Scientists 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).
Customer Satisfaction 😊
You’ll also have a companion that you’ll be able to trust since you’ve spent time ensuring that they behave accordingly.
Frequently Asked Questions 🤔
Will This Hurt The Dog?
What Is Ultrasonic Sound And The Range?
Ultrasonic sound is above the hearing range of humans, but is attention grabbing and irritating to dogs. This makes a safe and effective tool for dog training. It takes your dog's focus off of barking and towards the high-pitched sound.
Working distance: 50ft/15m
Will This Bother My Other Pets?
Cats and dogs have very similar hearing ranges, so if your cat is near the unit when it's activated, yes, it will probably bother the cat. But, the sound does not go through walls or around corners. For example, if the device is located in the backyard, and your cat is in the front yard or even in the house, the sound should not bother him at all. If it is being used indoors, you'll want to keep cats and / or rodent pets out of the room where it is being used.
Will This Work Through Fences, Walls, Windows, Or Bushes?
No. The high-pitched sounds emitted by our training devices cannot penetrate any solid objects such as wood fences, windows, walls or thick shrubbery.
However; sparse trees, window screens, chain link and wrought-iron fences should be okay.
Can I Use It On My Puppy?
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.
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.
