Bark Buster Fail
One would think that after 61 years, I would learn.
There are no such things as $20,000 homes for sale in Ft. Myers, Florida.
There are no $14.99 Bark Busters.
Yet in the past week, I have tried to buy one and failed, and tried to buy the other and succeeded.
Both were pretty stupid attempts.
You probably can figure out that at $20,000 home in Ft. Myers, FL didn’t last long on the market. By the time…
- Nancy read about the website in Parade magazine
- shopped around the site
- told me of her find
- waited for me to get done scoffing
…the house was on contract.
But here’s the deal on the Bark Buster.
When your dog barks, this sonic unit emits a harmless, high-pitched pulse inaudible to humans, but extremely irritating to dogs. He soon learns to stop this unwanted behavior. Portable and water-resistant, it has two sensitivity levels and is effective from up to 20 ft. away. Use it indoors or outdoors, on its stand or wall-mounted (hardware included). Uses one 9V battery (not included). High-impact plastic. 5″ long.
My fingers flew across the keyboard to get this gadget as quickly as possible. Out of the 129 batteries we have in Zee Haus and Hof, we had nary a 9 volt. A quick trip to Walgreen’s and back and we were in business with the Bark Buster.
I turned the level to high and put it on a window ledge within 6 inches of the back of the chair where Derby perches do do his neighborhood watch.
Within minutes a leaf blew across the yard and Derby was sounding the alarm to rally the rest of the herd to join the chorus. They did.
Nancy looked at me, I looked at her, waiting for the barking to suddenly cease.
$14.99: should have spent it on Miller Chill.
Aw crud. I was hoping for a happy ending there. Oh well, maybe your mouse population will diminish instead?

Bark Buster. How cute. But reading the description of how it works makes me think it would have exactly the opposite effect.
@K8: yes, it’s sad, but once again, dogs rule, humans drool.
@Rhea: Oh, you may be on to something! But how to prove a negative.
Everyday is Dog Day!
