We all adore our four legged friends and appreciate the love and loyalty they give us. There are times however that their barking starts to get out of control. I’m not talking about the “Hey, glad you’re home from work” bark or the “Yo, I need to use the restroom” bark. No, I’m referring to the barking that occurs when the breeze changes, a shadow moves, or the possibility that the noise we just heard wasn’t a bird, it was a large fire-breathing dragon just outside our window. This barking can sometimes be hard to correct, especially if they have a stubborn streak.
We tried many of the products on the market from sonic bird houses to spray collars. Unfortunately none of these items ever seemed to work on a consistent basis. This all changed though when I stumbled upon the “Pet Corrector” while surfing around Amazon one day. It’s a simple device that emits a high-pitched hissing sound, similar to the compressed air containers that you use to clean your computers/keyboards/etc. I was very skeptical at first that it wouldn’t work but I was proven wrong the first time I used it. The dogs went crazy when an unexpected doorbell rang one afternoon. I grabbed the container, did a quick push, and shush…no barking. They looked puzzled, started again, and another quick push. After that the barking was done. Now days, when they start one of their barking spells, it normally only takes a quick push and the barking is over. I love it because it’s quick, painless, and inexpensive.
I’ve attached a picture of it at the bottom of this post (this is a 50 ml container). So, if you’re looking for an effective way to stop unwanted barking, you should give it a try. You can find it here on Amazon.
