Excessive barking is considered to be a behavioral issue and is a bit tricky to deal with. A quick solution to stop a dog from barking altogether is using a dog whistle. The frequency of most dog whistles ranges from 23kHz to 54kHz. While the human ear can detect frequencies only up to 23kHz, dogs can detect frequencies beyond this and up to 45kHz.



However, dog whistles should not be used excessively or in exceedingly high frequencies as they might cause discomfort in dogs. Dog whistle apps, in general, tend to have a limit of 22kHz though some of them reach 25kHz or even 32kHz. But, Bluetooth speakers are more effective when dealing with the barking of a neighbor’s dog. Some of the best dog whistle Android apps are listed below.
