The PetSafe Elite Outdoor Bark Control includes a digital timer that can be programmed to turn the unit on and off at specific times, just like an alarm clock. When the Elite Outdoor Bark Control is within range of barking, an internal microphone picks up the sound and the unit is activated. The unit emits an ultrasonic sound which cannot be heard by most humans, similar to a dog whistle. Startled by the high-pitched sound, the dog should associate his barking with the noise and stop barking.
The attractive and discreet unit will look right at home anywhere in your yard, whether it’s hanging up or free-standing on a table or other area. With a range of 50 feet, the ultrasonic sound could cover a 1/4 acre yard. For outdoor use only. Uses 9V alkaline battery (not included).

Best Use Tips
- Place the unit no higher than 5 feet from the ground.
- Face the front of the device towards the dog.
- Make sure there aren't any large objects between the device and the dog. The sound doesn't travel well through fences, trees, or walls.
- Don't use this bark control device on dogs who are deaf or hard of hearing. They won't respond to the ultrasonic tone.
- Turn off the device when not in use. This helps prevent dogs from becoming desensitized to the sound.
- Add additional units to cover areas larger than 1/4 acre.
- Don't use this product inside your home. The ultrasonic sound will bounce differently indoors.
- To improve battery life, use the timers to turn on the unit only when the dog barks or turn the unit off when not in use.
- While the unit is weatherproof, it shouldn't be submerged in water. If water enters the microphone, the device might not work until the microphone dries.
