Frequently Asked Questions
IS THE DAZER AUDIBLE TO HUMANS?
No, the ultrasonic sound generated is above the human hearing range. Dogs and cats can clearly hear the sounds, unless of course they are deaf.
WHAT IS THE EFFECTIVE RANGE OF THE DAZER?
The DAZER works to deter animals in the 5 to 7m range. For best results, activate the DAZER when you first see the dog, even at 10 or more. This added alert helps to deter the dog.
WILL THE SOUND WORK THROUGH GLASS OR A FENCE?
No, hard surfaces reflect sound. Sound will not penetrate glass, a closed door, or a solid fence. The DAZER sound can be directed through chain link fence openings or between fence slats and will have effect through a loosely packed hedge, but the more dense the foliage is, the more the sound will be reflected back at you.
HOW DO I KNOW IF THE DAZER IS WORKING?
Look for a red LED light on the top of the DAZER when the button is pressed. If it will not light, the battery is low or the DAZER is damaged. If it flickers, the DAZER is damaged.
WHAT IS THE BATTERY LIFE?
Normally the DAZER battery lasts for about one thousand, one second activations, or a year or more for most users.
HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BATTERY?
Turn the DAZER over. Remove the two screws. Replace with a new 9V alkaline battery. Do not use heavy duty, rechargeable or general purpose 9V batteries.
CAN THE DAZER HELP STOP A DOG FROM BARKING?
Yes, the DAZER can be used in dog training, for barking, jumping on people, getting a dog's attention, etc. Activate the device and follow with a verbal command such as "quiet". Repeated use of the DAZER may result in training a dog not to bark. The DAZER is also great for getting a dog's attention when you don't want to yell. Short, sharp bursts pointed at your neighbour's yapping dog, will interrupt that barking behaviour.
