The Gentle Spray Citronella Anti-Bark Collar uses patented technology to deliver a harmless burst of citronella spray that 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 from whatever he's barking at. Shock collars attempt to reduce barking with pain. In addition to being less effective, pain may increase anxiety and aggression and make some behavior problems worse. And, although the pain caused by ultra-sonic collars is not as severe as with electrical shock, behavior experts observe only one-fourth the success rate as with the Gentle Spray Citronella Anti-Bark Collar.
When to Use
The Gentle Spray Citronella Anti-Bark Collar can be used with any breed of dog that weighs 6 lbs. or more and is at least 6 months old. (If your dog is smaller or younger, please check first with your veterinarian.) It is ideal for controlling general nuisance barking, both indoors and outdoors. It is not recommended for anxiety-related barking unless specifically directed by a behavior professional.
