Humanely Stop Your Dog or the Neighbor's Dog Barking
Whether it's your dog or the neighbor's dog, the Dog Silencer will help you regain the peace and quiet that's been disrupted by nuisance barking. This
revolutionary device automatically detects and stops barking with special sound frequencies and works up to 4X Farther than the competition!
How It Works
When the Dog Silencer detects barking it immediately sends a
high-pitched sound heard only by the dog. Using this proven method, dogs
are safely and humanely discouraged from barking. Relax while the
Dog Silencer quietly trains your dog, your neighbor's dog
or even multiple dogs!
No Shock Technology
Our humane training technique uses an age-old
principle that teaches dogs to associate their
barking with the irritating frequencies. Unlike
shock collars that are painful and can be used
only on one dog, the Dog Silencer can be
used virtually anywhere without you having to
ask permission from your neighbours. The Dog Silencer trains dogs to stop nuisance
barking (boredom and attention-getting barking)
but is designed to have no effect on instinctual
or protective barking.
The Dog Silencer is the world's
first indoor AND outdoor bark control device as well
as the first anti-bark unit to operate electrically
or with 6 AA batteries so you have extra
portability. Our exclusive High Pressure Transducer
carries sound further than any other anti-bark unit
on the market so even the most strong-willed dog
can't feign deafness. We conveniently include fold
out feet so you can stand the Dog Silencer on
any surface, and mounting holes on the back of the unit so
you can hang it anywhere. Add our new Wall Mount w/ Pan & Tilt for a perfect fit every time on fences, decks, trees, walls and posts!
Your Dog Silencer package includes a tiny keychain remote control - the only bark control device in the industry to include such a luxury. If for some reason Rover is outside the Dog Silencer's 23 metre sound sensor range, you can manually trigger the device with the simple press of a button. The remote control can be used from inside your home, car, or even in your pocket!
The silence you experience with the humane Dog Silencer™ will make you throw away your old ear
plugs, open your windows and enjoy the beautiful
harmony of birds chirping in the morning. Our worldwide customers rave about how the technology behind the Dog Silencer is bringing back peace and quiet to their
For your convenience, you can power the Dog Silencer™ with 6 AA batteries or using the included AC adapter. You can also purchase a convenient 9m extension cord which allows you more room to the place the Dog Silencer™ where you need it.
The Dog Silencer™ is essentially storm proof with a water resistance rating of IPX4. It can easily withstand sprinklers and rain, you just need to avoid full submersion underwater. To prolong the life of your Dog Silencer, use it in an area where it will be sheltered from extensive rain or direct sun.

The sound emitted from the Dog Silencer™ expands in a "cone" shape totaling about 130 degrees or up to 65 degrees on either side. The sound will be most powerful and have the best training results if the unit is pointed directly at the dog you would like to train. The ultrasonic tones will travel up to 60 metres in front of the unit. This range is up to 4X Farther than the competition!
For best results, the unit needs to be ON and in use near the dog at all times. This unit is a training device, so the dog needs to hear this activate each and every time he barks. The unit will go into a "stand by" mode when the dog is not barking. During this stand by time no power is being used, but the unit must remain "on."
While many customers see the affects of the Dog Silencer™ within a few days, this unit is a training device and will depend on how quickly the dog associates the ultrasound as a result of his barking. We strongly recommend you give the unit two to three weeks to see full results.
The Dog Silencer™ uses a high-pitched ultrasound that is designed to simply "irritate" the dog. It is not designed to cause pain or harm to their ears (we compare it to someone dragging their fingernails on a blackboard). We do not recommend using the Dog Silencer™ with puppies under 1 year of age. Please consult your veterinarian before using this product with puppies. The sound from the Dog Silencer™, although irritating, is not designed to hinder 100% of your dog's barking. If your dog "needs" to bark, he can. The Dog Silencer™ will not train the dog to stop barking out of instinct (at an intruder for example).
You can use battery or electricity - your choice. For the base price, you get the Dog Silencer™ and its convenient remote control. If you chose this base option, you will run the unit on six (6) AA batteries. For a limited time we are also including a 1.5m AC adapter. Please do not use after-market AC adapters (those not purchased from Good Life) with the Dog Silencer™. This will void your warranty.
Battery life varies on the dog's barking habits since the device only turns on when the dog barks. When first using the Dog Silencer™, the dog will be barking normally since it has yet to make the connection between its barking and the sound frequencies. At first, the batteries may only last about a week. As the dog becomes trained and barks less the batteries can last anywhere from 2-4 weeks. Battery life will also depend on the weather, the quality of the battery, and how often the unit is being activated. You may use rechargeable AA batteries if you wish.
Even though the Dog Silencer™ can "hear" barking up to 23m away, the corrective ultrasound emitted from the unit can actually travel up to 60 metres in a clear, straight path. If the dog is 30 metres away, for example, his barking probably won't activate the unit automatically. However, pressing the remote control will activate the Dog Silencer™ manually and the dog will still be able to hear the corrective sound.
If for some reason Rover is outside the Dog Silencer's 23 metre sound sensor range, you can manually trigger the device with the simple press of a button. The remote control can be used from inside your home, car, or even in your pocket! As an additional option, you can turn the Dog Silencer™ microphone sensitivity all the way down and solely activate your Pro using the remote control. Not only does this special convenience allow you to train dogs more than 23 metres away, but you can customise your own dog's training to include staying off furniture, away from the trash and anything else you want to teach your dog to do. The key chain remote can be used up to 23 metres away from the main unit.
We do not recommend using sonic or ultrasonic bark control devices with invisible or electric fences. Here's why:
Invisible/ Electronic Fence systems use a very similar high-pitched tone to "warn" the dog when he gets too close to the boundary of his yard. If he goes any further after hearing this tone, his collar emits a shock. Since the Dog Silencer™ (and all of our sound-based products) uses a very similar tone, this can confuse the dog. Since he has already associated this tone with his property boundaries, he most likely will not be able to associate it with his barking. The same problem can occur if you try to use a "shocking" bark collar on your dog with an invisible fence system. If the dog becomes confused between the two systems, this can actually make the barking worse. If you are using an invisible fence system, we recommend using a completely different stimulus to stop barking, such as a citrus-spray or vibrating collar. This way the dog will learn different outcomes for the two different behaviours (boundaries versus barking).
The high-pitched ultrasound emitted by the Dog Silencer™ will NOT penetrate any solid objects such as wood fences, windows, walls or thick shrubbery. Sparse trees, window screens, chain link and wrought-iron fences should be okay. Please see our Video on Getting the Best Results with your Dog Silencer™.
The Dog Silencer™ is essentially "storm proof" with a water resistance rating of IPX4. It can easily withstand sprinklers and rain, you just need to avoid full submersion underwater. To prolong the life of your Dog Silencer™, use it in an area where it will be sheltered from extensive rain or direct sun. Recommended operating temperature is 0°F to 100°F.
If the Dog Silencer™ is fairly close to the dog, you may be able to adjust the microphone sensitivity higher to pick up howling or even whining. If this doesn't work, you might consider our BarkWise™ no-shock training collars for your dog. Also keep in mind that a dog might be howling or whining for reasons such as discomfort, fear or anxiety. These issues should be discussed with a veterinarian instead of "punished" with any bark control system.
Cats and dogs do have very similar hearing ranges, so if your cat is near the unit when it's activated, yes, it will probably bother the cat. However, the sound from the Dog Silencer™ does not go through walls or around corners. For example, if the Dog Silencer™ is located in the back yard, and your cat is in the front yard or even in the house, the sound should not bother him at all. If the Dog Silencer™ is being used indoors, you'll want to keep cats and/or rodent pets out of the area where that is being used.
The high-low dial on the side of the unit is used to customise the microphone sensitivity. This is not a volume setting. You may adjust the sensitivity of the bark sensor between High (if the dog is far away) and Low (if the dog is close to the unit, or if the unit is being used indoors). We recommend you start with the unit on low, and then increase the sensitivity as needed. There is no volume adjustment necessary on the Dog Silencer™, as the ultrasonic frequencies can travel up to 60 metres in a clear, unobstructed path.
When using Audio Mode, you will be able to hear the Dog Silencer™ activate. It's recommended you switch to this mode when adjusting the bark sensitivity when first setting up the unit. In addition, you can use the audio mode for older dogs or dogs with poor hearing as an alternative to the ultrasonic sound training.
Also Keep in Mind:
Your Dog Silencer is a training device. Some
customers report seeing results within a few days,
but most will see results in 2-3 weeks.
Sounds Traveling Through Walls and Floors:
The sounds emitted by the Dog Silencer will
not travel through solid objects such as walls or
floors. If using indoors, make sure to put the Dog Silencer in the same room as the dog.
Using with Puppies:
Consult with your
veterinarian before using the Dog Silencer
with a puppy.
Using with Invisible Fence Systems: We recommend you do not use ultrasonic bark
control devices in combination with invisible
fence systems. This is because
the ultrasound frequencies emitted by our bark
control devices are very similar to those emitted
by the invisible fence Collar. This may cause
confusion and interfere with the dog's training.
If within the first few
days you notice your dog barking at the unit or
barking more than usual, this is simply part of
the learning process in which the dog associates
its bark with the sounds emitting from the Dog Silencer.
Using AC Adapters:
Do not use any
other AC Adapter with the Dog Silencer other
than the official Dog Silencer AC Adapter. Use of any other AC Adapter will void your
