I bought this hoping to reduce the barking from my Jack Russel Terrier. I can see the green light on the unit light up when my Rottweiler barks, but not from the higher pitched barks & yelps from the Terrier. I tried all the settings and several distances, placing the unit up on a shelf and on the ground. The mic just won't pick up the higher frequency barks from small dogs.
My terrier's barks are 3-4 times as loud as the Rott's according to my db meter and they hurt my ears most times. I'm surprised that those wouldn't set off the unit.
I am truly disappointed with the unit. I gave it 2 stars because it seems to work for bigger dogs like my Rott, but she never barks, so I have my doubts.

Absolutely no response from my dog! She doesn't even know it's there so she must not here anything. I bought this hoping it would quiet my loud chihuahua at home being that she barks at anything that moves, but this egg was useless. It was a waste of time and is definitely going back.

We moved from a house to a condo. I never thought my dog would have such a hard time adjusting. My dog would bark constantly while we were gone, stressing himself out, and creating issues with our new neighbors. My vet recommended pheromone collar and diffusers along with calming pills. NOTHING worked. I was at my wits end and then I came across the sonic egg at Petsmart's web site. I read the other reviews and thought I had nothing to lose... knowing I could always return it if it didn't help. I went immediately to Petsmart and purchased it. Once I turned it on I could tell my dog could hear the sound and that he did not like it. It took a few times barking for him to figure out the correlation but once he did it was a complete change!! No longer barking and he was less stressed out. The "accidents" in the house cause by separation anxiety also stopped. This product is AWESOME! THANK YOU!!!
