Barking dogs? Fight noise with noise

Ultrasonic soundwaves to the rescue

SkyMall

Despite our reputation, we at Crave have a soft spot for animals (except cats, of course). So even though the ill-tempered dogs in our neighborhood won't be mistaken for Lassie anytime soon, we still support humane ways to keep them under control. The biggest test of our patience, however, typically comes in the middle of the night--when they make the transition from lap dogs to howling wolves from hell.

That's why we're pinning our sleep-deprived hopes on the "Deluxe Digital Bark Free Pro," a $120 top-of-the-line device that uses four speakers to emit ultrasonic soundwaves up to 60 feet. The unpleasant sounds, which can't be detected by human ears, are turned on automatically whenever the dogs bark so that they'll eventually associate their vocalization with the sounds they hate, according to Coolest-Gadgets.

Now if only this device can be combined with the "electromechanical teen repellant," they'd have a sure winner on their hands.
