The rise in dog ownership over the last few generations has brought with it some new problems. Dogs seem to be everywhere now, and too often their owners are neglectful, ignorant or both. If you’re dealing with a Yorkie next door that never stops barking or a German shepherd down the road that always seems to escape his fence, it might not be a bad idea to give an ultrasonic dog deterrent a try.
