“The Sunbeam® Pets Sonic Egg™ Bark Control Device” Review
I was sent the Sunbeam® Pets Sonic Egg™ Bark Control Device to review. I was so excited, because my dog has a little bit of a barking issue. My dog loves to sit on the couch and look out the window, but because I live in town and there is always traffic on my street and people walking on the sidewalk. Every time she sees a car or someone walking she starts barking. So I took this cute looking device for a test. I turned it on and waited. Her first barking episode after turning on, didn’t completely stop her from her barking, but she held her head down and looked at me like, What the Heck!
I left it on the rest of the day and walked away and went about my business. Later in the evening I realized that I hadn’t heard as much barking as usual that day. So I wanted to test drive it for a while before writing this review. I used it for over a week and did notice less barking. It didn’t completely stop all barking, but it did help the barking sessions not to last as long.
I’m not crazy about the design. I would have preferred more of a box style shape and choice of color. It does have a hanging wire attached at the top if you want to hang it up somewhere.
The Sunbeam® Pets Sonic Egg™ Bark Control Device requires a 9-Volt Battery. It comes with a low battery indicator letting you know when to replace the battery. It is weatherproof if you need to use it outdoors. It comes with 3 adjustable levels of sensitivity. You need to be mindful that it picks up sound really well, so if there are loud noises in the room it will set it off. So you may want to turn it down on low if say you are having company or have the TV turned up loud. The Unit puts out a Ultrasonic sound that only dogs can hear so you don’t have to worry about human ears picking up the sound. The Sunbeam® Pets Sonic Egg™ works up to 50 feet away, so if you have a nearby neighbor dog that is annoying you with it’s barking place the Sonic Egg outside to help silence the dog.
All in all I really think that the Sunbeam® Pets Sonic Egg™ is well worth the money if you have a barking dog that you need to silence.
Disclosure: I received a Sunbeam® Pets Sonic Egg™ for my review. No other compensation was received. My opinion is 100% Honest and Objective.
