If you’ve got a dog that loves to bark in the middle of the night like I do. Take a look at this new collar that remedies the situation. According to the press release from Hammacher Schlemmer they’re selling the “Bark Deterring Ultrasonic Collar” for $39.95.

This is the patented collar that uses ultrasonic sound to humanely restore peace and quiet for those vexed by a dog’s nuisance barking. When a dog barks while wearing this collar, a built-in microphone detects the sound, causing the unit to emit a harmless high-pitched tone—inaudible to humans—that startles the animal into silence. The dog eventually associates its bark with the unpleasant sound, which conditions him to curb this undesirable behavior. Take a look at the “Bark Deterring Ultrasonic Collar”.
