1. Is the Super Bark Free weather proof?
The Super Bark-Free is what
they call weather resistance not weather proof. It is best to place
it so it will be protected from direct rain. If you place a plastic
cover over the area where the controls are it will be weather proof.
2. How does the Super bark free work?
This device has two
settings, ultrasonic and audible. When set to ultrasonic it will NOT be
heard by humans. Humans can hear the audible setting loud and clear.
It can be compared to a smoke detector with a laud pitch. Both settings
are effective at deterring dogs from barking. When a dog barks
within 50 to 60 feet of this device it will respond by blasting the
offending dog with a strong ultrasonic blast of 130 dB. This blast
can be effective for over 100 ft if placed in a line of sight to the dog
and there is little or no foliage to buffer the sound waves. Solid fence
would filter the sound before reaching the dog, so its effectiveness will
The Super Bark-Free is
approximately 10" X 5" X 5". The LED lights are
on the face of the Super Bark-Free, so you might need to put a couple
small pieces of tape over them if you are trying to hide it.
Ideally you want the Super Bark-Free in a direct line of sight with
the dogs. However we realize this isn't always possible.
To be honest it's difficult to say when these ultrasonic noises
will work or won't work because it really just depends on the dogs.
There are some dogs that will respond as far away as 100 feet while other
dogs must be much closer to the device.
Unfortunately there are some dogs that just do not respond to this
type of training. This is why we have a nice free trial/return
policy. Free trial
3. Can I active the Super Bark Free remotely?
We have used a wireless
battery powered door bell to activate the device. The doorbell
device cost about $29.00 US. The distance that the door bell will
operate is about 100 ft. So the way it would work is you push the
button on the doorbell you have in your hand and the bell you mounted on
the super bark Free unit would cause the device to be set off. I
have talked with the company trying to get them to add this remote feature
to the device, but they have not yet done so.
4. Can people hear the Super Bark Free?
The Super Bark-Free on the
ultrasonic setting puts out of a noise that is 23-26 kHz and every once in
awhile we do have a customer that can hear the ultrasonic tone.
5. How much is the shipping to Canada?
The Super Bark-Free
shipping and handling to Canada is $21.35 US via USPS Priority
international. Shipping and
handling for all international orders is nonrefundable. We are
not responsible for any Customs delays or charges.
6. How long does it take for the Super Bark Free to
Generally the dogs respond
to the Super Bark-Free right away... I would say a good part of the
time the results are immediate. Some dogs take a little bit longer
to train. It's not uncommon that it takes a few days for the dogs to catch
on. Generally if it isn't
helping after a week or so there are a few adjustments that can be tried.
If it still wasn't working after those adjustments are made it might be
that the device just is not going to work on that dog in that situation.
Unfortunately there are some dogs that just do not respond to this type of
7. Which is best sonic or ultrasonic for training the
barking dog to stop?
It really depends on the
dog. With some dogs the ultrasonic noise works better while with
others the audible noise is better. Unfortunately there are also
some dogs that just do not respond to this type of training. That is
why we have a nice free trial/return policy.
The general trend is that the audible noise is better against big
dogs while the ultrasonic noise is better against smaller dogs. That
said, we've had many customers use the ultrasonic noise successfully
against large dogs
8. Will the Super Bark Free work through a solid
Any wall or solid fence
will reduce the effectiveness of this device. Line of sight is the
best situation for maximum range and effectiveness.
9. Will the Super Bark Free work at 100 ft.?
The Super Bark-Free
"can" be effective at 100 feet if it is being used in a direct
line of sight and on audible setting. You would need to put the cone on
and activate the device manually; However it is not consistently
effective at that kind of range. Also, with most dogs you have to
use the audible noise at that range because it actually carries better.
The unit will not be activated by the bark at this distance.
The range of this device is usually 50-60 feet because of the
microphone's limitation to detect the bark.
Will Super Bark Free work on all type dogs?
anti-dog barking devices generally work well on most dogs. However there
are some dogs that just do not respond to this type of training. To
give you an idea of the effectiveness we get back about 15% of them back
from failure. We really
haven't found that it works better on one breed or another. It seems
to really just depend on the individual dog or dogs as well as the
situation. Obviously you will want to put the device as close as
possible to the offending dog. The range of these devices is usually
50-60 feet although again, part of that is just dependent on the
