Barking Dog Alarms

Some people aren't able to have dogs. Their either afraid of them or they don't have the time for a dog. Having a dog isn't for everyone. One thing that can't be denied is how dogs are a deterrent for burglary.

Some security companies have taken this into account by creating motion-activated barking dog alarms. When a person approaches your door, it will activate a bark that will get louder the closer a person approaches. These alarms cost much less than a full-scale alarm system and are simple to set up.

The brand I like (which is available at

Rex Plus

STI ED-50 Rex Plus Electronic Watchdog, Barking Dog Alarm
Rex Plus is created by Safety Technology International. It costs roughly $85.95 USD at Amazon but one can find it at other places online too.

  1. Brilliant invention - absolutely. When I lived in Cicero, my house got broken into around 1996 or so. I asked the cop who investigated what I could do to deter future break-ins, and he suggested getting a dog. There are some people out there who think that keeping a gun around is the best deterrent, but in reality a gun won't stop a burglar from getting _into_ your house. A dog probably will.

  2. You're right about a dog preventing future break-ins. Before our family had dogs, we had the same thing. Glad to hear that you found this article useful. Thanks for commenting.
