PetSafe® Outdoor Bark Control:

When the Outdoor Bark Control is within range of a barking dog, an internal microphone picks up the sound and the unit is automatically activated. The PetSafe® Outdoor Bark Control emits an ultrasonic sound. The ultrasonic sound can be heard by dogs but is silent to humans. Startled by the high-pitched sound that is safe and effective, the dog should stop barking, as it will associate its bark with this unpleasant noise. When the dog stops barking the ultrasonic sound also stops. The PetSafe Outdoor Bark Control has 3 sensitivity levels to choose from that indicate what barking level activates the unit and a test mode. It is effective up to 50 feet.

PetSafe® Indoor Bark Control Ultrasonic Pet Training System:

When the Indoor Bark Control unit is within range of a barking dog, an internal microphone picks up the sound. The unit automatically emits an ultrasonic tone that can be heard by dogs but is silent to humans. Startled by the high-pitched tone, the dog should stop barking. In time it will associate its bark with this unpleasant noise. When the dog stops barking, the ultrasonic tone also stops. It is effective up to 25 feet.

"I've been professionally ranch and animal-sitting for over 15 years now, and have had horses and animals every day of my life. I was in 4H for 11 years, have done vet internships, and have multiple certifications in equine and canine advanced first aid and emergency care. I work with a lot of dogs and horses with behavioral issues, rehab needs, and who may have come from abusive pasts. I have lots of patience and no problem spending time with animals, including exotics that other sitters pass over.
I offer both daily check-ins and overnight stays, whichever is preferred.
I charge $15/visit (includes walks, play, cuddles, feeding, etc.) OR $40 for overnights, which covers a 24 hour period and any care the animals (and your home) need in that time. All walks, hikes, medical care, gardening, getting mail, putting garbage in/out, etc. is covered. Exercising horses is included as well, with a small additional charge for training. I am flexible with rates depending on individual needs."

http://www.phoenixsnakeremoval.com/snake-avoidance-training.php - Phoenix Rattlesnake Solutions - Snake Avoidance Training -Dogs are curious and have no natural aversion to the sight, smell or sound of a rattlesnake. A strike-ready Diamondback looks like something fun to play with to an unknowing pet, and as a result, many dogs are bitten in the Phoenix area each year, often fatally.This can be largely avoided, however, by teaching the dog that rattlesnakes are to be avoided at all costs. It is recommended to all dog owners who could possibly come into contact with a rattlesnake that a proven aversion training program be taken.Phoenix Rattlesnake Solutions does not offer this training. We recommend ViperVoidance for proven, cost-effective training. http://www.vipervoidance.com/
