Does your dog bark incessantly for no reason? Does he jump on people when they come into your home? Does he chew anything in your house that isn’t nailed down? Whatever his problem behavior, Havahart Wireless says that their Ultrasonic Basic Trainer will help you put an end to it. The device can be used manually or automatically to correct your dog even when you aren’t home.
The Ultrasonic Basic Trainer features Select-a-Sound, which lets you tune the device to one of five different ultrasonic sounds to match your dog’s hearing sensitivity. When you first purchase the system, you wait until your dog performs the behavior you’re trying to get rid of, and then you start with the first setting and work your way through until you find the sound that your dog responds to.
When you use the Ultrasonic Basic Trainer in automatic mode, it is programmed to recognize a full range of barking sounds and will correct excessive barking even when you’re not at home. If no barking is detected in five minutes, the trainer goes into sleep mode to preserve the battery life. In manual mode, you can use the remote to correct your dog immediately following his misbehavior. It works at a distance of up to 25 feet and does not require the use of a collar.
The Ultrasonic Basic Trainer is covered by a one-year warranty and a 30-day money back guarantee. If there are any problems within the first 30 days after you purchase it, you are entitled to a full refund. If there is a problem after 30 days but within the first 12 months, the company will replace your training device for free.
As with any kind of training, ultrasonic training requires consistency, time, and patience. Just because this training tool works for your dog doesn’t mean it will immediately stop his bad habits. The company also warns that only about two thirds of dogs respond to ultrasonic sound. The other one third will not be distracted by the sound and will require more advanced training. If your dog doesn’t respond to the Ultrasonic Basic Trainer, you can return it within 30 days for a refund.
Unfortunately, if you want to use the trainer in a multi-dog household, you may have one dog that responds to it and one that doesn’t. If that were the case in our house, I would still return the trainer so I could use the same training method with both of our dogs. If one dog responded to it and one didn’t it may confuse them both and actually make their behavior problems worse.
