Rated 5 out of 5 by Happymom Good investment.
I bought this collar only after having spoken to our veterinarian in reference to our yappy Maltese, she assured me it would not hurt the dog. I put it on the dog and it only takes 1 spray for them to stop barking. As long as the collar is on him he will not bark. It is wonderful.

I got this for my dog who has separation anxiety and would continuously bark when I left the house. So far it is working great. I can sit outside and she doesn't bark. If she does, it's only once because she forgot the collar was on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SSophie It really works!
I resisted purchasing this collar for months, feeling that maybe it was inhumane, and our barking problem could better be addressed with behavioral training. After trying many different training techniques with no luck, I finally broke down and ordered this last week. I only wish I had purchased it sooner. It's not inhumane - just a puff of lemon scent, and this collar has worked amazingly well for our very noisy Shih Tzu mix. She has a shrill, high pitched bark, and she barked at anything and everything. She would position herself at our front window and bark at her reflection, when people walked by, birds, squirrels, etc., she went nuts when the doorbell rang, she barked at visitors inside our home, she barked ferociously at the vacuum cleaner, the television, and the list goes on and on. I've lived with this for two years, and her excited, neurotic barking was driving me insane. I've only had this collar for 3 days, and the neurotic barking has completely stopped! She quickly figured out that unwanted barking brings a burst of citronella. The lemony smell instantly snaps her out of her obsessive state of mind. Not only does this collar not hurt her, or irritate her eyes, but she appears to be a calmer, happier dog now. I realize it must have been stressful for her too. So far, this collar has been nothing short of a miracle. I can't say enough good things about it. Also, a shout out to chewy.com for selling it at the lowest price anywhere, super fast shipping, and first rate customer service. *I don't keep the collar on her all the time - She wears it during the day while I'm at home, but I take it off when she's playing outside, before bedtime, and when I leave the home and she's in her crate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dillysmom love this collar
Our Welsh Corgi loves to be outside but he imagines he sees "something" so he will stand at the corners of the back yard and bark,bark .... Or he will put his play balls in a corner and bark for us to come out and get them. He is pretty smart because we do. Not any more. The first time we put the collar on him he barked ONCE. Then the next couple of days we listened to see if he would bark and it has just stopped. Only complaint is getting the collar fit just right as the receiver is a little heavy and our dog has a thick coat so it took about 10 adjustments but we got it. LOVE THIS COLLAR. We just recommended it to a client we are working with and they are really excited to order one. Thanks for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Baronbarkedallot This collar is a lifesaver!
I have a 3 yr old German Shepherd with severe separation anxiety, he will bark and bark when I leave. I live in a apartment and the neighbors were complaining to the landlord about his barking, I was going to have to give him up or move and moving was not an option. He would surely have been put down at the dog pound because he has severe dog aggression issues as well. I got this collar as a last resort, I felt bad at first that he was going to get sprayed but it was harmless and did not scare him at all. He did not like it but it didn't hurt him. I put the collar on him and I left. As I shut the door he started his barking, he barked once then a pause...he barked a 2nd time and then no more! He stayed quiet as I was leaving. Noon has been complaining since I got the collar. He has learned not to bark when I leave! I cant say enough good about it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Leezy1960 Worked initially
This product worked initially on my golden retriever, but now he has become accustomed to the spray and it's no longer effective as a bark deterent. It has, however, worked great on my labradoodle. She does not bark anymore while outside, even if she's not wearing the collar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laceyandboxers This works great for my boxer
I am working nights, and the dogs have to stay outside while I'm gone. I am pretty sure the neighbors are enjoying the dog not barking all night! I don't even have to turn the switch on anymore. She knows when I put it on, and doesn't bark. Thanks Petsafe. I will be getting another soon.
