Dog Silencer Max: reviews for dogs’ owners

Perhaps you have a dog that barks constantly or you live right next to one. Then you might have heard of such an anti barking device as Dog Silencer Max and are thinking about buying it (because you really want to stop that annoying barking).

This device costs more than other bark deterrent on the market, so it is logical t9hat people have a question: is it worth the money? In this Dog Silencer Max review I will try to find out the answer to this question. I will also tell you what cheaper alternatives are available.

Why do you need Dog Silencer Max?

Dog Silencer Max helps to stop dog barking and solve some other unwanted behavior in dogs (like jumping on strangers or chewing something).

Also with Dog Silencer Max you can stop an unfamiliar dog climbing your yard. The remote control of the device will help with this. The same can be done with neighbors’ dogs that bark incessantly.

Dog Silencer Max can be used with several barking dogs at one time. If you have to deal with a lot of barking dogsthen buying bark collars for all of them will be expensive. Dog Silencer Max can be used for many dogs at once, and that’s why it is more effective.

Barking for dogs is a means of communication. They should not be completely forbidden to bark. Teach your dog when it is appropriate to express its emotions and when it is too much. Therefore, I recommend using anti-barking devices judiciously and in extreme cases.

How does Dog Silencer Max work?

This is anti-barking device that works by emitting ultrasonic sound:

  1. The sensor reacts to the dog’s barking and generates ultrasonic waves which are detected only by dogs. Once the dog stops barking, the barking control device will automatically stop sending ultrasound.
  2. This sound causes discomfort to animals, but does not harm it.
  3. Eventually, the dog realizes that the excessive barking will be accompanied by such an annoying sound.
  4. Then your pet will no longer want to make noise again.

Why it is such expensive?

The average cost of anti barking devices on the market is $30-70. Dog Silincer Max costs more than $100. What explains such a high price? I found several advantages of this device:

  1. The most extensive ranges available in the market. It can detect dog barking up to 100 feet away and its action extends to 300 feet. Cheaper counterparts have a maximum bark detection range of 50 feet and sound distance up to 150 feet.
  2. The set includes a remote. With the remote it is possible to ensure that your dog can hear the high-pitched sound each time it barks. You can turn the device on, if you’re within the 75-foot detection area. The cheapest bark deterrent have no remote control at all. Others include a remote control, but it has a lower range – up to 50 feet.
  3. Waterproof and stormproof. So it can be used indoors and outdoors.
  4. Availability of additional accessories. You can purchase an additional wall mount that includes pan and tilt. So you may hang it up on a wall or fence, tree decks, and many other things.
  5. Option to use solar power to run the device with no wires or batteries. It will eliminate the need to purchase batteries, or keep the device connected each time.

The company’s website also states that Dog Silencer Max is 40% louder than other similar devices from competitors. You can also buy an additional cone for sound amplifying to boost the volume by about 4-6 decibels.

As you can see, Dog Silencer Max does has many strong advantages, and that is why it is so expensive. It’s up to you to decide whether or not you’re willing to overpay for these benefits. At the end of the article I will write about a cheaper analogue of the anti-barking device, which has pretty good characteristics.


Can ultrasound be dangerous to humans or dogs?

Don’t worry about it, “ultrasonic” sounds are intense, however they won’t hurt our dog or harm your ears. It’s like chalkboard nails for humans. Although this isn’t going to stop the dog from barking, its sound is too high for us to be able to hear. So ultrasonic devices don’t harm dog’s owner and aren’t a nuisance to them.

Does it work for the whining, crying dog?

Yes, you can adjust the sensor for such sounds. However, I recommend looking for the reason your dog is howling or crying rather than punishing it.

Are Dog Silencer Max activated by human voice?

Thus the bark deterrent activates as soon as the dog starts to bark. You can also use an option to use a remote control in case you wish to operate it manually. It cannot be turned on by human voice.

What is the time I can observe the effect?

In some cases your dog might take a few weeks before it learns not to bark. It is based on the dog and what time it can adapt to the environment. Different breeds have different absorb time and capacity for their training.

How to use it correctly

You need to install Dog Silencer Max in the place where the dog usually barks, because it will not work through walls. It could be a garden or a room in the house. Take into consideration that the device will operate within a 300-foot radius.

Before starting work, it is recommended to make the settings in the Audio mode. You will hear a beep when the anti barking device is activated. Adjust the microphone sensitivity so that it only works when the dog barks.

After setup and installation, turn on Dog Silencer Max and it will do its job. The device must be switched on all the time. It will be in standby mode and will only activate when the dog barks.

It is recommended to use the remote control for the first time. Press it every time your dog starts barking. It is best to aim the device directly at the dog. Then it will accurately pick up the ultrasonic waves. When the dog stops barking, I also recommend giving it a treat to reinforce the result.

Be aware that you must maintain an unobstructed line of sight between your dog and the device. This is essential to ensure that your dog can be able to hear the sound. The remote can be used through walls, but the device requires an open line of sight to the dog.

Does Dog Silencer Max really work?

To find out an answer, I went through a lot of customer reviews. Most of them say that this bark deterrent really works. But of course, as with all things, it doesn’t work for some dogs. And anti-barking device does not help everyone immediately. In some cases, it took several weeks to wean the dog from a bad habit.

I believe that if you have a problem with a barking dog, you should try every method. Especially since they give a risk free 60 day money back guarantee for these devices.

Dog Silencer Max customer reviews

Here’s what Melinda from New Orlean tells after she bought Dog Silencer Max:

“I ordered a dog silencer max because my neighbor moved in with two dogs. Incessantly barking, I contacted neighbors who said that their dogs didn’t bark!

Just in a few minutes of placing my dog’s silencer inside my window did the dog noiser work! I am very grateful it worked! I was seriously considering leaving after spending 31 years in my present house! But I am able to return home now!”

Here’s a second review by customer who is happy:

“This product works. Our neighbor owns four amazing dogs. Two of them constantly bark when their owners are not around. Our border is 300′ in length, and their street width is more than 300′. I purchased two boxes, separated by 100 with ENE and ESE pointing. I immediately saw their stunned reaction. They quit barking and headed back to their homes. The remote for me sometimes works from more than 100 feet away when required. The range of ultrasound seems to be working beyond 200′.”

And here is a video review after 2 weeks of using dog silencer max. The guy confirms that the device worked, and his dog practically stopped barking. The device continues to work properly even after three days in the rain, which confirms its water resistance.

A Few limitations of Dog Silencer Max

In my opinion, the main disadvantage of Dog Silincer Max is its high price. But I also found a few minor disadvantages of this device:

  • Doesn’t penetrate solid objects like the walls and windows. For example when your dog is very vocal inside, and you put Silencer Max in your home, it’s not effective for stopping the dog’s bark even when it’s out.
  • Pets of other breeds, even the quiet ones can be affected by the annoying ultrasonic sound. If they’re within the same vicinity that the gadget is in of course.
  • Do Not Combine in conjunction with Invisible Fence Systems. From the dog’s point of view the frequencies of sound from The Dog Silencer Max sound are very like the electric fence. In this case, one could be lost and even anxious if it experiences the noise in a different location than where it’s accustomed to hear.

Dog Silencer Max Alternatives

I could not find a device with the same characteristics as the Dog Silencer Max. It really is the most powerful anti-barking device. But it’s hard to find it on sale now and it’s expensive. So I have found some alternative products for you with the same function and with positive reviews.

This device can detects barking up to 50 feet and sound distance up to 150 feet. It’s not much, but it’s enough to influence the dogs in your yard and the one next door. Bark Control Pro also includes a remote with 50 feet control range.

Most of the reviews are positive.

One drawback of The Bark Control Pro – it is not waterproof. So to use it outside, you have to figure out how to shelter it from the rain. Maybe in the future Good Life will figure out what to do with it.

Final Conclusion for Dog Silencer Max review

Indeed, the Dog Silincer Max is much more expensive than similar devices on the market, but it is also superior to them in many ways. Device can work across long distances and has an option to control the remote, to conduct manual training.

  1. The ZNFSZ Anti-bark Device reviews on Amazon are all fake, or are from different products. I purchased one. It, did not work at all and was not remotely water resistant as they advertised.

    • Thank you for your feedback; it’s helpful information! I’m sorry you encountered this situation. There is always the possibility that a defective product will arrive.
      I will try to find a replacement for the ZNFSZ Anti-bark Devic. Of course, quality products cost a lot of money… But I want to find something for a small budget.
