I understand many people have their animals actually attracted to the unusual beeping; the thing about this is that the owner themselves must work on associating the beeping with a negative, like giving a "No" command or whatever else the dog or cat may understand as a sign that you have become upset at what they have just done and that they need to leave it be.
For example, I have taught my kitten that when I make a "ssss" sound, he needs to leave something be, like wires or my shoe strings, and he leaves it alone. I did this by making the sound, and then when he looks at me in confusion but does not walk away from it, I blow in his face (something he definitely does not like). It's simple conditioning.
For this product to be effective, the guardian/owner of the animal will have to actively participate in showing your animal exactly what the sound means: that they need to leave it alone. Over time, your animal will learn to just leave it be. This added effort, to me, will definitely be a wonderful replacement from shock collars.
I would recommend this to a friend!

This product is unfortunately not effective. It was activated as promised but instead of repelling my dog it actually attracts him to the sound, which is a loud beep like a microwave going off, before he just walks on past it. Reviews of this same product elsewhere indicate that other purchasers have had the same experience. A great idea that unfortunately does not work. Prehaps with a sound that truly repells animals......
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
