From the makers of the Gentle Leader Headcollar comes another gentle training tool. Designed to control nuisance barking, the Gentle Spray Citronella Anti-Bark Collar uses patented technology to deliver a harmless burst of citronella spray that distracts your dog and interrupts your dog's barking. The spray works with four of the dog's five senses - he hears it, sees it, feels it and smells it. Citronella is a unique scent that most dogs don't normally encounter. It's non-offensive to humans, yet "unusual" enough to distract your dog. We tried this collar on our barking dogs and it made an instant difference. Remember, the collar should be used as a training tool and not as a punishment. When your dog doesn't bark, reward your dog with a"good dog" and a treat. This is not the type of collar that you should put on your dog and forget. It holds 18-23 sprays before you'll need to use the refill bottle to refill the collar. Each kit includes: Gentle Spray Citronella Anti-Bark Unit, 24 inch Adjustable Nylon Collar, Citronella Spray Refill, two 6-volt batteries, and complete instructions. Gentle Spray vs. Shock Collars or Ultrasonic Collars -- Shock collars attempt to reduce barking with pain. In addition to being less effective, pain often increases anxiety (I know it does with me) and aggression and makes some behavior problems worse. The pain caused by ultrasonic collars isn't as severe as a shock collar, behavior experts observe only one-fourth the success rate as with the Gentle Spray Citronella Anti-Bark Collar.

No more barking!

posted 5 years ago

I love the concept of a gentler punishment (smell of citro instead of shock) to help dogs curb their barking habit (in the presence of a good training program and lifestyle modification to address the problem barking, of course). However, dogs can still bark at a high pitch without being corrected. Furthermore, another dog's bark will set the collar off which is really unfair to the dog wearing the collar who has not barked. A few bugs to work out but still a decent product for the time being. Oh, and it eats expensive batteries like candy!!!

Pros: does stop much of the loud barking

Cons: dogs can whine and bark at a high pitch still

Keeps the hounds down

posted 5 years ago

I have used this product on two of my hounds and it was fantastic. I found it very difficult to train them from non-nusiance barking without the aide of something. I refuse to use a shock collar! The citronella bark collar is best used when you can give a verbal command to help train away from it's use. It is also helpful for apartment folk who need to be considerate of their neighbors when they leave the house. Both of my dogs now respect my no bark command and I never hear my neighbors complain (sometimes I'll ask if they hear them during the day and even then I get good feedback).

Pros: Humane and effective

Cons: reserve only holds 25 sprays or so
