Dogs are loving and overprotective animals with highly developed senses. Unfortunately, this hyper-sensitivity allows them to pick up all forms of stimuli that may force them into a frenzy of uncontrollable barking. For dog owners and neighbors, sleep deprivation and interruptions are the order of the day, but this does not have to be the case. One of the most effective ways of preventing your dog (or your neighbor’s) from barking is by use of bark deterrents. These devices produce a high frequency sound that is highly annoying to dogs, but harmless and even inaudible to humans. Unlike bark collars that are only limited to the dogs wearing them, bark deterrents affect all dogs within close proximity to the devices. Here are the best bark deterrents.
