Control barking indoors and outdoors with the Bark Genie

Springtime means outdoor time! While pet owners and their pets are out walking, playing and enjoying the change of season, this time of year could also create additional distractions for your dog causing him or her to be on alert.

It’s no secret that barking is your dog’s way of alerting and protecting your family from potential dangers, but in some cases this natural alarm system can become frustrating not only for you but for your neighbors as well. Controlling excessive barking may be achieved with hours of discipline and training, although it may not work 100% of the time.

First Alert Bark Genie available at 1800PetMeds

That’s why the Bark Genie is your silent solution to instantly stop annoying barking. With its ultrasonic technology, the Bark Genie immediately detects barking within a 50 feet radius and emits an ultrasonic sound only dogs can hear to instantly stop their barking behavior. Not only is the Bark Genie safe and effective for indoor or outdoor use, it also works on dogs of all breeds and sizes!

Whether it’s the noisy dog next door causing you restless nights, or your own dog incessantly barking when the doorbell rings, the Bark Genie can eliminate all of your dog barking problems with the touch of a single button – at the price less than most training sessions.
