Do ultrasonic repellents really work on dogs?


Answer by  katharine (3981)

It depends. If you are trying to stop a dog from doing a certain behavior it might work, but it depends largely on the individual dog. Some dogs are much more stubborn than others and will not be deterred by an ultrasonic repellent. Other dogs are very sensitive and they will respond to it.

It depends on the dog and the cercumstance. A dog in a rage wont likely be stopped by a noise, while a dog just wanting to jump up on you might be repelled by the noise. They work best as training aids. Pepper spray is better for self defense against rouge dogs.

I tried one on my own dogs and, even after adjusting the sensitivity, the dogs ignored it. Talk to your neighbor about the incessant barking. Some people are just oblivious and they may not realize how annoying it is. Also, try to find out what is making the dogs bark.

Mythbusters did an episode on this, it did work. However the police dogs don't run away from it due to incredible training. But, most dogs will.

Yes, these devices work up to 30 ft. away. They emit an ultrasonic sound that is unpleasant to pets, sensitive to their ears and disrupts their nervous system,weather proof also.

Some say they do, some that they don't. Personally, I believe more in sprays and alike forms of repellents that penetrate the skin and which chemical effects are much clearer and medically approved.

Yes, they really do irritate dogs. No, they don't always repel the dog away from the area. Sometimes when a dog is irritated by ultrasonic sounds, the dog will choose instead to bark at the sound, or howl to drown out the sound in his own ears. It does often cause the dog to leave the area, though.
