I was very hesitant and not at all convinced when purchasing this item.
One of our three-year-old Yorkie-poos started to bark obnoxiously for no reason non stop every evening. As my husband sat on the couch Tucker would jump at my husband and bark. We had no idea why! It drove us almost insane. All of the dogs needs were met – but he would seem to do this just for attention, and as the weeks went on it became unbearable.
We tried everything! So this little item was my last shot. I SWEAR I only used it once or twice for one evening, and said said “no bark” as I quickly pushed the button. Tuck immediately stopped barking and ran upstairs. The second night (and ever since) I only need to say “no bark” and he clearly gets it. This little thing was a life saver. My house is so much quieter! I still can’t believe how quickly this thing worked!
LOVE IT and HIGHLY Recommend it!

Before buying anything expensive and fancy to stop your dog or other dogs from barking, try this one first. I bought this product specifically for training/stopping my dog from barking. My dog pretty much barks at anything and everything. It was embarrassing and everybody is pretty much scared of my 14 pound mutt. Living in the city, it became a two person job to take our dog out to go potty; one as a lookout to check that nobody and nothing is around, and the other to hold the dog. We have tried a lot of things to stop him from barking. I was very skeptical at first since this product is sooo inexpensive and we’ve tried many things that were much more expensive that did not work. I figured, $10 bucks…what the heck. We tried it out the same day it came. As soon as he started barking we would say “quiet” and when he didn’t(like usual), I pushed the button once and he stopped barking right away. I couldn’t believe it! I did not hear another peep from him the whole time we were outside. I’ve had this product for about a month now and it still works. We now call it the “mute button”. Now, the simple “quiet” command works most of the time to make him stop barking. We still bring it with us during walks and potty breaks for the times that he forgets or something around is too irresistible. When we do use it, we make sure that as soon as he stops barking he gets lots of praises and a treat for positive reinforcement.
I know that this might not work for all breeds but it worked for me! I sure hope that it works for you! For 10 bucks, it was well worth it!
The only con I have for this product is that the 9 volt battery(not included) does not fit well in its slot. You can’t close the battery slot so I had to jerry-rig it by taping it shut. This doesn’t bother me though as long as it works:)
Bought one of these due to the neighbors dog barking at me and my kids everytime we are in our backyard. My wife tried to make friends with the dog a few months ago and got bit. The dog is a female mutt about 5 years old and weighing about 50 lbs. After I received the unit I put in a battery and headed outside. Immediately the dog ran to the fence and started barking and growling at me. I pointed the unit at the dog and pressed the button. The dog stopped barking turned it’s head slightly to listen to the sound, and ran away with it’s tail down! After doing this twice in a 2 day period the dog does not bark at us in the yard anymore! Anytime it sees me or my family it quietly goes back into their garage. We can finally enjoy our backyard without the constant barking noise! The noise is NOT audible to us at all. The other reviewers must have received a defective unit.
