Works on my stubborn bork bork addict against all odds
Reviewed in Australia on 30 June 2019
Hi I’m PJ, and my dog is addicted to barking. And not just barking. He likes to yowl and bork and howl as if the very hounds of hell are racing up the driveway.
Fly in the house? Must bork.
Black sack looking ominous? Must bark as if death himself is about to emerge from said sack.
Branch fallen on the ground? Growling and frenzied barking are required to ensure branch does not try and kill anyone.
You get the picture.
But the worst, most ear exploding, most eye rupturing sounds are saved for the car.
The yowls and psychotic bork-borking when we near the park or (heaven forbid) I get out of the car without him, are loud enough to bring whole armies to their knees.
All from a pup that is only slightly bigger than my cat.
We’ve tried many methods to stop this car carnage. Bribes, threats, distraction, dog whistles and the good old squirty water bottle amongst them.
But his need to carry on like someone is ripping his entrails out has proven too much of an addiction.
I point blank refuse to use anything that would hurt him, so citronella and electric shock collars were never an option.
This little beeping, vibrating thingummy was last option before we gave in and started using ear plugs.
Turned it up to 3 and popped it on his neck to a high level of snugness and drove off. And bugger me Aunty Edith’s old backgammon set. Woofing in the car is muchly reduced. MUCHLY reduced.
He still goes bork-bork batshit if I leave the car, but the rest of the journey, although not totally silent, is MUCH better.
