Can I use it with a puppy?
We do not recommend using the Dog Silencer MAX on puppies under 1-year of age. Please consult your veterinarian.
Can I use it with an invisible or electric fence?
We do not recommend using ultrasonic bark control devices in combination with invisible fence systems. This is because the sound frequencies emitted by our bark control devices are very similar to those emitted by the invisible fence collar. This may cause confusion and interfere with the dog's training.
How does the remote control work?
Even though the Dog Silencer MAX can detect barking up to 75 feet (23 m) away, the sound emitted from the unit can travel up to 300 feet (90 m) in a clear, straight path. If the dog is 100 feet (30 m) away, for example, his barking alone probably won't activate the unit. But, pressing the remote control will activate the MAX manually and the dog will still be able to hear the corrective sounds.
In addition, you can turn the microphone sensitivity all the way down and activate the device using only the remote control. Not only does this allow you to train dogs over 75 feet away, but you can customize your own dog's training. This could include staying off furniture, away from the trash and anything else you want to teach your dog to do. The keychain remote works up to 75 feet away from the main unit.
Should I use batteries or electricity? How long does the battery last?
You can use batteries or electricity — it's your choice. However, do not use aftermarket AC adapters (those not purchased from Good Life). This will void your warranty.
Battery life varies on the dog's barking habits since the device only turns on when the dog barks. When first using the Dog Silencer MAX, the dog may bark as usual since it has yet to associate it's barking with the sound frequencies. At first, the batteries may only last about a week. As the dog becomes trained and barks less, the batteries can last anywhere from 2–4 weeks. In addition, battery life will depend on the weather, the quality of the battery, and how often the unit is being activated. You may use rechargeable AA batteries if you wish.
Will it hurt or harm the dog in any way?
No it will not. All Good Life products are designed to be safe and humane, and they are only designed to stop excess or nuisance barking. The training sounds are not painful or harmful, and if a dog really needs to bark, he can. This will not stop a dog from barking out of instinct (at an intruder for example).
Although not harmful, the sounds emitted by our bark control products may be too intense for puppies under one year of age as they are still developing their hearing. Please consult your veterinarian before using this product with puppies.
How long before I should expect results?
While many customers see the effects within a few days, this unit is a training device and will depend on how quickly the dog associates the sound with his barking. Some customers also report the dog barking at the unit, or barking more than usual in the first few days.
This is a normal part of the learning process. We strongly recommend you give the device two to three weeks to see full results.
Does it have to be on all the time?
For best results, the unit needs to be on and in use near the dog at all times (it will go into standby mode when the dog is not barking). For best results, the unit needs to be left on so that it can activate consistently each time the dog barks.
What is the range/angle/coverage area?
The ultrasonic sounds will emit in a cone shape of about 130°, or about 65° on each side. The sound is directional, and will have the best training results if the device is pointed directly at the dog(s) you wish to train.
