Dog & Cat Communicator

Funway Electronics Project 7

A dog and cat communicator? Try it, you might be surprised! Trainers tell us that dogs and cats respond to high frequency sounds – higher than we humans can hear – and you might just hit on the right note to train your pooch to come in for dinner.
A simple modification turns this project into an alarm – which can be used to surprise unwelcome visitors or warn you without them knowing.
