To optimise the effectiveness of the unit:
The unit has a range of 5, 10 or 15 meters emission and needs to be positioned so that the microphone and speaker are directed at the area where the dogs bark. If it is raised above the level of the dogs' heads, it must be tilted forward so that the microphone and speaker are directed at the dogs. If it is at the same level as the dogs, it must face the area where the dogs are and it is usually best to put it in the corner of the area so that it faces out from the corner for maximum coverage. The microphone sensor detects any loud noise within approximately 15m and emits an ultrasonic noise (not audible to humans but uncomfortable to dogs' sensitive ears).
After about a week your dogs should associate the irritation of their ears with their barking and reduce their barking.
Depends entirely on the individual dog's hearing. Some dogs are not affected by the ultrasonic noise (they might be hard of hearing / going deaf, extremely well trained - eg police dogs - or have long furry ears that cover up the ear cavity so that their hearing is desensitised) and will not react to the unit. Some dogs absolutely hate it.
The effectiveness of any deterrent can vary from animal to animal and according to handling methods and environmental conditions. We can not guarantee that this product will work with every dog.
