    I have two neighbors that have dogs that bark all night.

    Can anyone tell me where I can get a good sized ultrasonic generator that
    will travel farther than the 23 to 50 feet that the ones available at dog
    Internet sites have?

    I just want to set it up, and zap them enough times to get them to stop this

    I had the same exact problem and got one of these.

    The problem was the distance @ about 50 feet. It will send the sound wave
    but would not trigger at the distance since it needs to hear the dog bark
    loud enough to trigger. Hence it needs to be closer but then you would be
    trespassing. I did find that the dogs got quiet when I went out and would
    aim and hit the manual test button. The problem was this would not train
    them to stop. But they would stop for a while.

    I did not want to tell the neighbor what I had so I ended up calling the
    police and let them handle the problem. Down to one dog now and the
    neighbor has gotten the hint so it is much better now.

    Do a google search for "Barking Dog" and get a lot of info.

    Good luck,

    Thanks. A lot has happened since last week. We have engaged the local
    zoning commission in a mediation hearing, and enough of the neighbors are
    willing to be named in complaints that we can give it to the DAs office, and
    they will at least be fined.

    We went through all this last year, and the people took care of the dog for
    a while. So, we didn't press on. Then they let the dog bark again, and we
    were back at square one.

    I want something that I can just hoist up in the air about ten feet high,
    stay on my property, and give a couple of ultrasonic blasts that will make
    any barking dog pay attention. The range has been the limiting factor on
    this. We have only two offending dogs in the neighborhood.

    I have found a speaker from a LRAD unit that may do the trick if I can
    figure out the power source I need to hook it up to.

    Geez. Remember where you were and what you were doing the first time you
    heard Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band?
