My cocker spaniel's barking has been a stress for the last 3 years. Creating problems with our neighbors, even with some of my friends and creating anxiety for us. The bark collar didn't work, but this ultrasonic training device worked! The first time pressing the button my dog ran off and went quiet. I now just have to show my dog the device and he stops barking or doing whatever it is I don’t want her to do. I rarely have to push the button. Great tool for training.
Our pandemic puppies have developed some not so desirable behaviors, and they are related. Our Bernedoodle jumps on people she has not seen for more than 15 mins (read anyone in the family other than me). When she jumps on people, our Bernese Mtn Dog charges at the poor target and barks and bites them for attention. My thinking was that if I can prevent one from jumping, the other one won’t bark or bite. But how to control this craziness when it starts?
After doing some research, I decided to give limeite a try. The reviews online were mixed, but the people who wrote about it saving their pet relationship gave me hope.
Now I will explain how I am using it.
The plan: use the command “settle” if the Bernedoodle jumps or the BMD barks. If either doesn’t settle after the command, use the light training feature. As soon as they stop, treats and praise for “good settle.” The light training feature is just a really bright light to get their attention. There is also an additional feature that has the light and an ultrasonic sound that only dogs can hear. But because I love my puppies, oh and I am using it for 2 dogs and different behaviors, I decided to stick with the light trainer first.
Day 1: I armed myself with trainer treats and strapped the limeite to my wrist. My puppies definitely noticed the light and it got their attention. Neither puppy liked the light, but both stopped after I flashed the light and followed up with treats and praise. I was consistent all day, which was kind of a pain, but as the day progressed both puppies would at least pause before engaging in the behavior when seeing the limeite.
The “ah ha” moment was during dinner when the BMD started barking. I gave the command and he didn’t stop, so I used the light trainer… and he stopped barking. Y’all, that is a game changer at our house! I know that consistency will be my friend, but I am hopeful that limeite can help us get our puppies to be better behaved. Day 1 was promising.
Working well to help train our dog. He responds quickly to the high pitch and to the LED
So amazed. My dog is barker. She would not stop barking. I did everything. I saw this and decided what the heck. I have to give this a try. She started barking so I pushed the button quick to get her attention. She stopped looked and walked away. Wow I thought. I was in the kitchen. She is in the living room looking out the window. She starts again. I did it again quick. I did not want to hold the button. Just wanted to get her attention. I said her name at the same time when I pushed the button. The next morning she started to bark. I did not have the barker. I yelled her name and she immediately stop parking. To be honest. Just getting her attention with the thing and saying there name at the same time. Works. Well it worked for me.
