We've tried the Bark Smart, the Barker Breaker, etc. to control our two yappy dogs, and its the same story: They work...BUT...
  • The thing goes off at EVERY loud sound, not just barking
  • The 9-volt battery wears out within a week


So we'd like some advice on a home-brew solution I thought of. Our dogs happen to despise the raspberry sound - the "Bronx Cheer" - the bilabial fricative - OK, the FART sound. One blast with your tongue and they are out the door. So here's what I thought of: A couple of wireless speakers and a wireless mic with a good range, say, 100'. Every time we hear our dogs barking we open the mic and blow a good fart noise. Can anyone recommend some hardware for this solution?

there are plenty of anti-barking devices available on the online e-commerce marketplaces, you could check them but some of them work fine and some are a rip off and wastage of money.

Now why didn't I think of that? My father-in-law has one of those...and constantly embarrasses my mother-in-law with it in public!

While this only works to 50ft, its cheap.
