Almost didn't even have to look at the ad. You're right these sort of interuptors are geneally too scary. The person issuing the harsh sound is the one the dog becomes fearful and untrustworthy towards. Any interrupter doesn't have to be aversive. It's purpose is to get the dog’s attention or to interrupt an unwanted behaviour so one can re-direct and reinforce an alternative behaviour.
