Sunbeam Ultrasonic Egg Dog Bark Control Device
I have 3 dogs, only 1 barks a lot. The barking dog seemed to only sort of care about this. I had it in the living room, then she would just go bark in the garage. 1 of my dogs could care less. It often went off with the sound from closing cupboards. My golden retriever was so terrified of it that she refused to come in the house. She sat outside all day every day to avoid it. This is the laziest house dog ever. Not worth it to me. I'd rather put up with some barking and hang out with all my dogs. The second I packed it up, the retriever resumed coming in the house. Returning this.

This worked well for us
We have a Yorkie mix who is very high strung and incredibly barky. Clearly the dog wasn't socialized well as a puppy and the breeder was not good. We have tried Prozac and lots of training, including spending hundreds on a specialist. That helped a bit but not enough. Our vet recommended the egg and I bought it but saved the receipt assuming it wouldn't work, just like so many other things haven't. But it did work and it was immediate. He barked once when it was on and then ran into another room. Then he came back a few seconds later and was quiet. People come over and he barks a couple times when they come in but then settles down. He used to bark incessantly for at least five minutes. He seemed a little out of sorts for the first few days but then he was totally fine. The vet's assistant said it only worked on one of her dogs, so it's definitely not going to work in all cases. And I think it's mean to use if it works on one dog and not the other and the quiet dog has to live with the consequences of the barking dog (we only have one dog). But if you have a barky dog, I would recommend trying this but saving the receipt in case it doesn't work for you. We always loved our dog but now we actually like him a lot more.

This Item Doesn't Work!
I have two small dachshunds that are consistently barking when people come into my room or into the house and I bought this product thinking that this product would help them to stop barking; well... the first few days it did then it wouldn't work at all to stop them from barking, the machine even made odd loud noises that I could hear.

Really works great, but I feel bad for my dogs
I bought this a few days ago and wow it really does work. I live in an apartment and at times have had neighbors complain about my dogs barking. Since I got this no more barking. My dogs are actually creepy quiet at times. The only draw back is that I can tell this sound really disturbs my dogs to the point that my big dog doesn't feel like playing and is now attached to us at the hip when we walk in the house. I'm glad it works, but I don't want my dog to feel like he's on eggshells. Overall it really does work effectively! Maybe a little too effectively.
