Hello, I dont want to get into details very much, all I can say is that after talking to my dumb neighbors (they didnt care!) and trying to stay really calm, I got tired of beign stressed with this dog: NEVER STOPS BARKING!... I've read comments about using ultrasonic bark controllers (not collars). This devices are set up near the dog and when the dog barks, this device sends an ultrasonic sound that only dogs can hear. I would appreciatte if anyone reading this topic can let me know, by your own or friend experience, if this type of devices work.
Thank you.

If by "work" you mean do they emit an obnoxious noise? Yes, they really do.However, if by "work" you mean do they stop the dog from barking..not often, and then not without training. And if by "work" you mean audible only to dogs, I'd have to say NO. My not-so-together neighbor got an ultrasonic collar for her poor dog with separation anxiety (on the advice of a know-it-all-*** neighbor). Not only could *I* hear the obnoxious high pitched noises, but the sound would scare the poor dog into another fit of barking..which would trigger more noises..and so on, and so on.

By the end of that day, both the poor dog and I were more exhausted than I bet we'd been for quite some time. I told not-so- clever neighbor to please never use that collar on her dog again. It was cruel to her particular dog, not helpful at all in terms of fixing anything, and loud to everyone else.
That is officially my only direct personal experience with ultrasonic devices. I don't choose to have another.

We got a small one that's used indoors, and it works very well.

Completely eliminated the "barkfests" that were happening between the front- and backyard dogs.

By "work" I mean to make the dog shout up! "NO MORE BARKS!". For what I know, this far/short-distance devices can be set to send audible or not-audible sounds, and of course, some dogs seem to be very sensitive to them and some other dont. I love love dogs, I would never use something to hurt them as a collar, I know what you mean by "cruel". But this distance devices seem not to hurt dogs, except from emitting noise...
Thank you!
Hello, was it used with a large type dog (golden retriever) or with small type (schnauzer)? My neighbor's crasy dog is a schnauzer... Thanks!
They work to creat no-bark zones, can be very effective for guardy barkers who like to bark out the windows and doors. If the device is set near to those windows/doors, the dogs learn not to bark near them - which tends to make for an overall change in the demeanor of the dog, in that the dog is no longer on patrol to yap at every passerby.

I doubt it would work for your situation, though. I think those things only have a range of 15-20 feet. If the neighbor dog was further away than that, you would still hear him but the device would not.

It worked on a Saint Bernard and a couple of 40 to 50 lb mixed breed dogs.

I suppose it's possible that it might not work on a particular dog, but I wouldn't think that would be because of the size or breed.
