Why Is A Dog Repeller That Uses Sound The Best Device?

The most effective dog repeller uses sound, but what device produces the kind of tones that an attacking animal will respond to? For many years, the assumption was that the higher the frequencies, the more powerful its repulsive effect. Though this concept has been used in a variety of products, its efficacy has never been proven. And when it comes to canines, there isn’t any reason to believe that higher pitches are more likely to repulse the animal. In fact, audible tones can be calibrated to activate the portion of the canine’s sensitive hearing range, which will immediately produce the desired repulsive effect.

What about other forms of deterrence, like sprays?

Ultrasonic and audible tones aren’t the only forms of deterrence on the market, but other technologies, like sprays, have serious problems. For one, not everyone is comfortable with temporarily blinding a canine and causing it significant pain. Sprays are older forms of deterrence, so they aren’t designed to be as humane as newer technology. Also, sprays are notoriously difficult to aim, especially when it is windy outside. Now, imagine trying to aim for an attacking canine’s face when it is charging at more than 20 mph, and the adrenaline is flowing. When it’s windy, there’s no telling where the spray will go, and it can even blowback into the user’s face, blinding the user while they are under attack. Because it is so difficult to aim, this form of deterrence can regularly fail.

What are some other issues with an ultrasonic dog repeller?

A sound device that produces extremely high tones is also difficult to aim, because higher frequency tones emit at a narrow angle. So, when an animal is pursuing, the emitter will still need to be aimed more precisely, which can be tough to do from a bike seat or when running at high speeds. Ultrasonic deterrence is naturally beyond human hearing, as well, so the user can never be positive that it is actually working. Even with some form of indicator, there still isn’t perfect feedback that everything is functioning properly.

There is also an issue with ultrasonic tones in older canines. As animals age, their ability to pick up high frequencies erodes, and may be absent altogether in canines that are several years old. And there isn’t any evidence to suggest that ultrasonic tones are particularly repulsive to the canine, as they hear them all the time, and may not consider them unusual.

A dog repeller like the Sound Defense device takes on the canine threat with audible tones. Specifically, it emits patterns of tones that are completely novel to most animals, producing a repulsive effect that causes no pain. Audible tones also emit in a larger angle, so they are much easier to aim. In fact, the Sound Defense can easily be activated from the back of a bike and maintain its effectiveness while the cyclist can pedal away without any difficulty. The idea is to minimize the possibility of anything going wrong when using the deterrent because the user’s life may depend on it.
