Essential Info

Help your furniture, drapes and plants coexist safely with your cat or dog. Define no-go areas like the kitchen for hygiene. The Scraminal uses heat and motion sensors to detect pets as they enter off-limit areas. Simply place the animal deterrent unit facing the area you do not want your pet to go. Each time your pet ventures into this area, the unit emits a series of short, high-pitched (audible to humans) beeps which are uncomfortable to your pet. The unit automatically resets to guard against the next intrusion. Your pet will eventually learn to keep out of that area. 9-Volt battery included.

    I have had one for a long time and had been looking for another to place in another spot. It is working great and really keeps the cats on their toes.
    SUSAN -- puyallup, WA   7/16/2012
    I have about ten of these Scraminals in different positions around the house. They keep the cats out of rooms I would rather not have them in, and also, they are absolutely the best way to discourage unwanted marking behavior. They do not work to well on dogs, at least not on mine, however, they work very well indeed on cats. My cats will not go near them, or the rooms that are protected by them. I have used Scraminals for years and would not be without them. All they require is a new battery periodically and can be used just about anywhere. I always recommend them to anyone that has a problem with their cat. Scraminals are the greatest!

    Fantastic so far. Upside: Have three cats, purchased two units to keep them away from certain spots in the home and it works great so far. I hope they don't get used to the alarm. Downside: Limited range means having to purchase additional units :
    GREGORY L. -- fairfax, VA   8/2/2011
    The Scraminal does not scare my dog. It turns out to be worthless for me.
    LIZ -- huntington beach, CA   7/7/2011
    Works when I remember to set it! Would like something with a little more versitility, but over all ... The Scraminal has saved the front blinds!
    MARSHA H -- lexington, NC   6/10/2011
    This is a wonderful product. Keeps kitty off the counters when nothing else worked. Does it in a kind way.
    DAVE -- sumner, IL   5/13/2011
    not what i wanted the audible is not supossed to be load but a frequincy humans cant hear and our animals just look at it and walk by
    JANET -- warren, CT   4/15/2011
    It makes a clicking noise. Can't figure out what the problem is, so I've taken the battery out. Will try replacing the battery with a new one. Hoping this is the problem.
    PATRICIA M. -- aurora, IL   2/28/2011
    I had high hopes for a product that would keep my dog from grabbing things on counters, table tops, etc. The vet recommended this product as a way to correct the dog, without the dog seeing you as the source of the correction. That way the effect would not depend on your being present to stop the undesired action. The Scraminal was totally ineffective for this purpose. To point out a few problems: 1) This device emits a LOUD audible signal - enough to really bother human ears, but it didn't really have any effect on my dog. 2) There's no way to set Scraminal up "secretly". As soon as you turn Scraminal on, it starts screeching because you are too close to it. The dog immediately knows that you are the one responsible for the correction. 3) It covers too wide an area. If I set it up on the kitchen counter, for example, it detects motion and screeches whenever anyone enters the kitchen - not very practical. 4) Maybe some animals would be frightened of the noise and stop the undersirable behavior, but certainly not all. My dog grabs the Scraminal and runs around with it in his mouth. All the while, the thing is making its horrible noise. I guess it's a pretty fun toy for him! But as a training device, I rate it a waste of money.
    SAMUEL -- honolulu, HI   1/21/2011
    Works great, cats are under control now!
    JANET -- warren, CT   1/9/2011
    Maybe because the Scraminal is made in China, but the new Scraminals do not operate as efficiently as the two that I've owned for the last 10 years.
    JEFF -- greenwood, IN   12/27/2010
    Works well keeping the dog out of certAIN AREAS OF THE HOUSE.
    MIKE -- minooka, IL   12/19/2010
    Great product, excellent price and fast shipping
    NANCY -- laguna beach, CA   8/27/2010
    We purchased two for the dining room and one for the living room. We couldn't contain our 6-month old puppy in a very large house and this worked wonderfuly. Kai's 9 months old and these warning signals allowed us to get through the tough training period with lest accidents. I recommend them highly!
    JEFF -- newcomerstown, OH   8/15/2010
    not satisfied, sounds like a phone ringing, cats just walk by it with no fear. Bad purchase. No refund available after opened, I'm sure they would all be returned if possible.
    GREG -- edmond, OK   7/20/2010
    Love it. Seems to have caught the cat both times we saw her go through it. Doesn't always go off when I walk through it with pants on, but does when I'm wearing shorts and there's skin to set it off when I'm trying to test it to see if its still working. Great product though.
    LESLEY -- providence, RI   7/16/2010
    The product seems to have the potential to work well in terms of the cats' behavior, but the alarm is inconsistent--sometimes working as it's supposed to but equally often nothing happens when someone crosses in front of it.
