PetSafe Gentle Spray Anti-Bark Collar
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.

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.

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.

Didn't work for my dog
The collar worked for about three days and then my dog got used to the smell of the citronella and just barked through the sprays. I'm sure it works well with some dogs, but my dog was more focused on what he was barking at and didn't care about the spraying that was happening. I guess it's back to the beginning and figure out another way to get my dog to stop barking at other dogs.

Worked at first
For the first few days this worked great. He quit barking after the first few sprays, then after a few days he became used to it and barking is more important.

It's so nice to not have Gabe barking all the time. He is deaf and this is the only product that helps with the barking.

Reduces barking for active Aussie
Works well and seems effective. Now our dog barks 1-2 times, not 10-15. Hard to get into routine of taking other collar on/off. If regular collar left on the tags set off spray as indicated in the instructions.
The spray collar seems comfortable despite the large spray box. Our dog does not know it is on her or resist us putting it on and she is a pretty smart pooch.
