Bark Stop ProMain review

Let’s start with the features that stop dogs from barking. Firstly how does it work?

When dog barking triggers the device an inaudible (to humans) High Pressure Ultrasonic Sound Wave is blasted at the offending dog. This noise is an irritant to the dog, which will eventually learn that it’s barking triggers the sound and it should stop barking to avoid the ultrasonic sound. The manufacturer say this should happen within 2 weeks, however some customer reviews say that their dogs stopped barking immediately.

So to the remote control unit

I was unable to find out what 3 of the buttons do, however all the reviews I found of the unit raved about the training button. Pressing this button gives an immediate ultrasonic blast of sound which can be used to train dogs to stop barking but also as a training device to stop dogs from bad behaviour e.g. jumping up at people or on the furniture.

Update… I’ve researched this remote control and found what the buttons do.

Button 1

Standby. This turns the whole unit on or off. If you go out in the yard for gardening or a party you can turn it off remotely so it’s not being activated all the time. When you have finished you can press the button again to turn it off. This saves having to unplug it or removing the batteries.

Button 2

Ultrasonic button. This puts the ultrasonic blaster on standby. If you want to put your own pet out in the yard this will stop it being targeted and blasted by the bark stop unit. Press again to turn it back on.

Button 3

Strobe button. Pressing this puts the strobe light into standby… Press again to turn the strobe light back on.

Button 4

The big red button muhahaha. Pressing the “power” button sets every thing off for 30 seconds… Depending which mode you are in it will set off an Ultrasonic blast, strobe light or audible sonic alarm. After 30 seconds it resets ready for another blast. Most people find this button the most helpful in all aspects of stopping dogs barking to scaring pests from their yard.

Bark recognition technology

This unit can differentiate between barking and other loud noises which is helpful when you only want to train the dog only when they bark and not when traffic passes by.

Adjustable barking sensor

With the sensor being adjustable you can target just the one closest barking dog and not one in the distance.

Green light barking sensor

Because the sound given off is inaudible to the human ear it is handy to see if the Bark Stop is working, especially if you are adjusting the sensor and want to know if your target dog is in range.

Bark Stop ProUsing the Bark stop as a pest repellent

If you want to scare pests away from your yard or garden then this unit is great. With a larger and therefore louder speaker than the majority of ultrasonic repellers you can keep an area of up to 5000 square ft. pest free.

The unit has an infra-red heat detector built-in which detects moving pests then blasts them with an ultrasonic sound wave which either scares the pest away or irritates it making it move on to quieter areas.

If you know which pest you are wanting to repel the unit has adjustable frequency settings that are known to upset that animal. However there is another setting which will continuously sweep the full range of settings so at some point your pest will be affected. Some reviews I have found suggest this is more effective than a targeted frequency.

It can also be a burglar alarm

When set to alarm, the Bark Stop will use its infra-red heat motion sensor to detect movement and when triggered it will give off a laud audible sound (the volume can be adjusted)

Buy here

I hope you have found my review helpful, check out the customer opinions below or you can click to buy here. I recommend you purchase from Amazon USA or Amazon Canada for best prices (39% off at time of writing) and prompt delivery, stop your dog barking sooner.

Bark Stop ProCustomer opinion

There are mixed reviews on the effectiveness of the Bark Stop Pro to stop dogs barking. Most people are amazed and very pleased with the results however some people say the unit is useless. I know and believe all dogs are different, some respond very well to the training but others are belligerent or just plain mental and ignore the ultrasonic sound altogether.

Another point that was noted was the back cover was very fiddly to fit and this may have led to the unit not being weather proof… Be careful on replacement of this cover.

Buy now… Or should you?

If you have found my site stopUpest.com and are looking just to buy the Yard Sentinel Dual then I recommend you buy it from Amazon (link here USA, Canada) for their quick delivery, low prices and great service. However SPOILER ALERTDon’t buy it!… Buy the Bark stop pro instead, it’s the same product but it’s cheaper (at time of writing) and has a remote control. But if you are still unsure read the review below.

Features of the Dual Explained

So much crammed into such a small unobtrusive box! Where to start?

The dog silencer trainer… Stop dogs barking

Yard Sentinel Dual How it works.

When a dog barks in range of the Yard Sentinel Dual (a customer review said it worked up to 50 ft.) it will emit an inaudible high pressure ultrasonic sound wave that dogs find annoying. They bark and the sentinel blasts them, eventually the dog stops barking. Aspectec the manufactures of Yard Sentinel, estimate that training can take up to 2 weeks, however some buyers who have reviewed this product have had immediate results.

Bark recognition technology

Unsure what this is, the manufacturer aspctek.com gave no information. But I guess this is a sensor that can differentiate between loud noises and a dog barking. This will stop the device going off at every loud noise which would cause confusion and make training of a dog useless, another benefit  would be a saving on battery power (if using batteries).

Adjustable barking sensor

You can adjust the sensitivity to detect only close barking, which would make the device trigger only when your dog barks and not the neighbours, or if you are silencing another dog, when the neighbour’s dog barks and not one a few houses away. Again stopping the confusion of which dog you are trying to training.

Green light sensor

Lets you know when the sensor is triggered. Used with the adjustable barking sensor you can tell when the device is triggered and even if it is working.

Other features of the ultra-sonic pest repeller

For an explanation of the other features of this product see my review of the basic but fantastic Yard Sentinel.

Problems with the Yard Dual

This fantastic product is an ultrasonic pest deterrent, dog silencer and an intruder alarm… But it can’t do all 3 at once. You have to choose which one you want it to function as and change it as needs arise.

Yard Sentinel DualVerdict…Should you buy it?

If you have a pest problem or want to train dogs to stop barking then this is a brilliant little pest repellent / trainer and I would not normally hesitate to recommend it to you, but as stated above I have found an even better, cheaper model also made by Aspectec and it’s the Bark Stop Pro. It is the same model as above but it also has a remote control making changing settings and dog training even easier.

If you still want the yard sentinel dual then I recommend you buy it from USA Amazon or Canada Amazon, I have not found a better price elsewhere and their fast delivery makes stopping those pests and dog barking even sooner.

Yard Sentinel | Review

Yard SentinelYard Sentinel

Hi and welcome to my site. Today I’m going to review the Yard Sentinel and I am going to run through its features, the good points and the bad, then customers reviews and point you in the direction of where to get the best price.

I’m reviewing this mainly as a cat deterrent however my research reveals that many people buy this to repel a vast assortment of animals, from the large (dear, bear) to the smaller (cats and mice) and everything in-between.

Note: If you’ve just landed on this website but you are looking only to buy the Yard Sentinel then click here and go straight to Amazon USA or Amazon UK where you can view the product and prices.

Or you can check out the full review below.

Features

  • Up To 5,000 sq. ft. of coverage range
  • Adjustable PIR Infrared Motion Sensor with Night Time Scanner
  • Inaudible High Pressure Ultrasonic Sound Wave or Intruder Alarm
  • 3 selection technologies: Motion Sensor / Constant / Continue Sweep
  • 3 Time Selections – All the time, day or night
  • AC or Battery Powered
  • Easy install and offers great pest protection for almost everywhere.
  • Humane, no toxic chemicals.
  • Works great against Rodents, Sea Rodents, Seagulls, Insects, Rats, Mouse, Birds, Bears, Deer, Dogs, Cats, Raccoon, Ducks, Geese, Squirrels, Skunks, Foxes…

Main review

How much does it cover?

This Aspectek sentinel covers a massive 5,000 sq. ft. of your yard that’s a distance of 70 ft. that just one sentinel can keep cat free for you.

Works at night

This scarer comes with a built-in infra-red heat sensor which will detect the heat signature of your pest up to 70 feet away, but it can be adjusted to make it less sensitive if you wish to cover only a section of your yard. Because it uses a heat detector to find pests it will work both day and night… Darkness is not a cover!

Utltrasonic Blast

Pests are hit with an Inaudible High Pressure Ultrasonic Sound Wave when they come into range. Good news, it’s inaudible to humans so we are not affected or inconvenienced by the sound, but it scares the life out of its target.

Can also stop theft

If you select the intruder alarm setting, the yard Sentinel will produce a loud audible alarm letting you know that it has been triggered, so turning it into a burglar alarm.

Settings

There are 3 settings you can use.

  • Motion sensor – This setting triggers the ultrasonic sound only when a heat signature is in range. This is a great setting if you use batteries only.
  • Constant – This gives out a constant ultrasonic sound giving warning to animals and making them uncomfortable to be near.
  • Continuous Sweep – gives out ultrasonic sounds at different frequencies at random time intervals which will startle pests as well as making them uncomfortable to be near.

Next there are 3 time settings “All the time, day or night”. This gives you more options to save power from the battery.

Yard SentinelThe Yard Sentinel can be powered in various ways. AC via a supplied 33 foot extension cord or 6V – 24V DC battery power sources including a vehicle power source, by connecting to the Cigarette Lighter Socket, and DC Sealed lead-Acid (SLA) battery power source

This yard scarer is very easy to install, either place on the ground or mount to a wall. Just face it towards the area you want to be pest free.

Safe deterrent

A great feature of all ultrasonic pest deterrents is that they just use sound to keep your yard clear. No chemicals or traps are used just sound, making this a humane safe deterrent.

I’m amazed at the number of different pests the Sentinel will scare away. Here is the list again Rodents, Sea Rodents, Seagulls, Insects, Rats, Mouse, Birds, Bears, Deer, Dogs, Cats, Raccoon, Ducks, Geese, Squirrels, Skunks, Foxes…

I hope you have enjoyed the review, check out below some of the comments made by customers who have bought this product, or you can click here Amazon USA or Amazon UK to buy the Yard Sentinel. I recommend you purchase from Amazon for the best prices and prompt delivery.

Customer Comments

One lady with a very large garden was extremely pleased with this device not only did it stop rabbits, deer and other animals from eating her veg patch but it also kept cats and dogs away! How about that, not just one pest problem cured but at least 4 just from one sentinel.

A problem that seems to crop up is that it is too sensitive! Even on the lowest setting it will detect movement 20 feet away.

I’m pleased to say that the majority of comments was positive so I can recommend this product for you.

Get off Dog and Cat Repellent Spray Review

Get off Dog and Cat Repellent Spray Review

Get off cat and dog repellent sprayI have researched Rosewood Get off Dog and Cat Repellent Spray and I’ll answer the following questions for you:

  • Is it is any good?
  • What is it?
  • What does it do and how does it do it?
  • Should you use it?

Click here for more user reviews near you USA, UK

What Is Get off Repellent Spray?

Get off Repellent spray smells strongly of citrus which animals find uncomfortable to be around, making this spray one of the easiest ways to stop cats and dogs using your garden as a toilet. Just spray around the areas that you wish to discourage cats and dogs from going near.

Users use it both for keeping cats and dogs from fouling their garden and yards but also as an indoor pet trainer.

What does it do?

Cats and dogs find this spray an irritant to their senses so when they come across areas sprayed with Get Off they move on to better fresher areas.

To stop cats and dogs from repeatedly fouling your garden you have to break their toilet habit. This can take anything from 3 weeks to 3 months, but once they are in the habit of using another area they shouldn’t come back to your garden.

How does it do it?

Rosewood Get Off contains Methyl Nonyl Ketone 3.47% (a cat and dog pesticide More info here) and also citrus oils which together cats and dogs find as an irritant. They will avoid this spray and smell if possible.

If you can make cats and dogs use another area for their toilet instead of your lawn they will continue to leave your lawn and flowers alone. This may take anything from 3 weeks to 3 months… All cats and dogs are different!

Why should you use it?

Get off cat and dog repellent spray thumbGet your garden back! A very easy to use cat and dog repellent that will rid your garden and lawn from cats and dogs that think it is their toilet. As you can target specific areas with this spray it is suitable for cat and dog owners too.

However a word of warning! Do not use near ornamental ponds, or those containing fish. Do not use on edible crops.

Is it any good?

Get Off Dog and Cat Repellent Spray like all other cat and dog deterrents has mixed results, with some users having excellent results, and unfortunately other users believing it to be a waste of money and a total failure.

The downside to repellent sprays is that it does have to be re-applied periodically and after rain fall

Conclusion

Would I buy Get off Dog and Cat Repellent Spray ? …Yes and no

Yes for outdoors. The better results have been from users who are trying to stop cats and dogs from using their garden as a toilet.

No for indoors.  For indoor training of pets I would try something different. This product has a strong smell that most people find repulsive (however one user uses it as an air freshener!) also the results from indoor training of pets are very low.
