Bark Off Helps Control The Yorkie Yappers

When you see those infomercials for all those wonder products you feel a little curious sometimes. We saw the ad telling us that there was a miracle antibarking device out and that we needed it. Since we have "yappers", I mean Yorkies, we knew that excessive barking comes with the breed, terriers like to be verbal. They bark to protect us, bark to talk to us and bark to get our attention. And we can live with a little barking, we love our animals, and their little yappy ways. But if there was a product that could help eliminate some of that extra barking, we had to try and see for ourselves. So we looked over the reviews online, checked out the safety of the device, and went ahead and got one. Bark Off is a small and portable device that uses a high pitch sound to get the dogs attention. When the dog barks it emits this sound that only dogs can hear. We then added "NO BARK" to the sound of the Bark Off and the Yorkie herd got quiet, very, very quiet. This thing is suppose to work in a safe and humane way, to both us and the dogs. We thought about trying to test out a solid white piece of wood with our dogs...but just use the Bark Off with dead batteries...the sight of the thing quiets the Yorkies...so technically it works...just not as automatic as the commercials show...if ya got it as a gift...be glad...if ya bought it...oh well, ya tried it and maybe you got better results then we did...maybe not.




Our Yorkies still bark a little, but we have the control to either allow it or turn on the Bark Off and tell them "NO BARK" and silence is ours to have. We don't leave it on all the time, since we do like to know that someone is outside our house, or let them bark at their friendly cat going by. But if the Yorkies don't stop barking after first announcing a strange noise, a cat or someone outside, we flip on the Bark Off and a little "NO BARK" and they settle down instantly. Now it might be all psychological, we might just want it to work so bad we think it's working. Anyway, something makes the dogs stop barking...maybe it's the shape of the device or maybe they can read what it says on it, "Bark Off" and they just stop barking because of that.




So now Shiloh has made peace with his new toy, well, our new toy. He will even lay down beside the Bark Off on his favorite Redskin blanket. The Yorkies have been trained to quiet down just by seeing the Bark Off come out. And if they don't stop barking within our set time limits, a flip of the switch, a little "NO BARK" and silence is ours again. We know it's a combination of the voice commands and them seeing the device, but hey if it works...we got something for our money. We just don't buy batteries for it anymore...just the sight of the device and our "NO BARK" works...but we would have had this outcome if we hadn't tried the Bark Off device.

So if you have a excessive barker you might want to give Bark Off a try. You might get better results then we did, hey it might even work like it's suppose to. Check them out at http://www.barkoff.info/ and see for yourself what Bark Off is all about. Good Luck!!

I have ask several friends if they had tried a no-bark device and none of them had. Thanks for the testimonial.
