Every so often we at The Popfin aim to answer some of the questions we get through emails and comments on our stories. Since we place an emphasis on animals and pets, one of the most common questions we received pertained to our own Man’s Best Friend.
“How Can I Get My Dog To Stop Barking All Night?”
A barking dog can be a nightmare for not only dog owners but also for neighbors and young children. What’s more, when it’s not even your own dog it can feel incredibly aggravating to be kept awake all night.
We did some research online and found a product called PetGentle. Here’s how it works:
PetGentle is a handheld device that emits a high-frequency sound that distracts a badly-behaved dog during a barking session. These high-pitch sounds aren’t audible to human ears but can quickly be heard by dogs with sensitive hearing. Consider it like a high-powered dog whistle.
These ultrasonic sounds have been tried and tested and are completely safe when played in front of dogs and even cats. All you need to do is point your PetGentle toward your dog and gently press its button when your pup is misbehaving. There is an LED night on the tip to act as a visual aid to humans to make sure it is working.
At time of writing, PetGentle has sold more than 62,500 units across the United States. Currently, you can purchase one device for $40 – all that’s needed is one battery to operate it.
By investing in this one-off purchase, you might just change your life and help your dog behave throughout the night. We have even shared a video with you to show how it can work. You can see the video below and see the results for yourself!
