Product to stop barking
Forgive me if I put this post in the wrong category. I didn't know if this would even be considered as training or as a Yorkie product. I'm pretty sure that many of us have problems with our puppies/dogs constantly barking all the time either from separation anxiety or from barking at people passing by etc. My friend suggested Petsafe Outdoor Ultrasonic Bark Deterrent. It supposedly sends a high frequency only dogs can hear to stop them when they start barking. These are my questions, first, should I even buy this? Is it cruel to my puppy to purchase and use it? Does it even work?

I bought one but it is inappropriate for a multidog environment, and therefore cruel to the ones who are not the offending barkers. It did seem a painful response, so I don't think I'll ever use it again. Training is the better way to go.

i used one and it worked great... we live in the city so nuisance barking was not an option.. it didnt go off if she just barked or yapped in a "talking" way..it only went off when she would get on a barking rampage... and then it seemed to surprise her more than hurt her and within a week ..i gave it to a friend for her pup as Alice had given up that type of barking rant. :-)
Also..i specifically bought it from petsmart..so that if it didnt work i could return it.. Alices's dog trainer said it works about half the time ... hope this helps and good luck!
