Dog Repellent Circuit

Here’s circuit for dog repellent circuit that is a high output ultrasonic transmitter which is primarily intended to act as a dog and cat repeller. Here’s the figure of the circuit;


This circuit can be used individuals to act as a deterrent against some animals. It should NOT be relied upon as a defense against aggressive dogs but it may help distract them or encourage them to go away and do not consider this as an electronic pest repeller. The ultrasonic dog repellant uses a standard 555 timer IC1 set up as an oscillator using a single RC network to give a 40 kHz square wave with equal mark/space ratio. This frequency is above the hearing threshold for humans but is known to be irritating frequency for dog and cats.

Since the maximum current that a 555 timer can supply is 200mA an amplifier stage was required so a high-power H-bridge network was devised, formed by 4 transistors TR1 to TR4. A second timer IC2 forms a buffer amplifier that feeds one input of the H-bridge driver, with an inverted waveform to that of IC1 output being fed to the opposite input of the H-bridge.
