Deal or Dud: Bark Off

- Does your barking dog drive you nuts? Don't you wish you could just flip a switch to get them to be quiet? The Bark Off claims that it can actually do that without any painful shock collars. But is it a deal or a dud?

Prince Louis and Parker are an important part of Chad's family. It is an odd couple to say the least, but one has an annoying problem. Little Parker can't stop barking.

The Bark Off uses an ultrasonic frequency to tell your family pets to clam up. There are two basic settings on the side of the device: low and high. The high setting is supposed to work up to 20 feet.

To test the device, owner Chad placed it close to his front door using the low setting. We pressed the door bell and knocked on the door. Parker stands close on the other side muttering, but no barking. Meanwhile, Big Prince Louis remains unfazed.
"You know, it didn't phase him [Prince Louis] but the little one [Parker] was making a sound I never heard before. It seemed like it had some effect on him," says Chad.

We tried it again on the high setting to make sure it wasn't a fluke. Both dogs didn't bark, but this time Parker stands farther away from the door. Not exactly 20 feet, but pretty close.
"When you turned it on the high the little one, Parker, walked all the way to the far side of the room an kept his distance from the device," says Chad.

Both tests worked, so is it enough for Chad to say it's a deal? "I think it is a deal. It certainly kept the small one from barking."

If you think the Bark Off is perfect for your furry friend, you can pick it up at any Bed, Bath and Beyond for $9.99. Or, you can order it on their official website for only $10 plus shipping and handling, plus you get an additional Bark Off with extra shipping.
