There’s no need to put up with endless barking. The GentleSpray Anti-Bark Collar gently and immediately conditions your dog to stop barking using a harmless burst of spray. The collar uses a microphone to pick up your dog’s bark, which triggers a harmless burst of spray. The spray distracts your dog from whatever he's barking at, letting you redirect your dog's attention. This spray collar is safe for all dogs, including puppies.

  • Item Number
  • Before playing with your dog, turn the unit off and remove the bark control collar. The activity may cause your dog to bark, which could lead to him associating the play with the burst of spray.
  • The collar must be filled to maximum capacity before placing it around your dog’s neck. Never fill the device while your dog is wearing it because it may damage the Refill Port.
  • To ensure that your dog does not make the connection between you and the spray collar, don’t let him see you prepare the device for the first try, or for subsequent use. Keep your dog away while you prepare the device as well as when you fill it or change the battery.
  • It is important that your dog’s hair doesn’t block the Spray Nozzle. Try tying a bandana (handkerchief) around your dog’s neck, then place the spray collar above it. If necessary, you may also consider trimming a little of the long hair around the dog’s neck for better spray effect.
  • Remove all other collars with metallic parts or tags. These could create noise that may needlessly activate the spraying device.
  • Avoid letting your dog wear the device with an empty reservoir. Make sure it is always full.
  • Turn OFF the device while not in use.
  • The PetSafe Anti-Bark Collar should only be used with pets that are over 6 months of age.
  • Your spray collar is splash-proof but not completely watertight. Remove it before letting your dog go for a swim.
  • Keep the device clean at all times. Do not immerse it in water when cleaning. Simply use a dry cloth to wipe away dirt. You may lightly brush with an old toothbrush if dirt accumulated in front of the Microphone grid.
  • The Microphone is calibrated so it won’t be activated by nearby sounds. However, the barking of another dog at close range could cause the device to spray.
  • Always make sure that you are not mistakenly trying to fill the reservoir through the Microphone opening. This would damage the device.

Battery Life

Average battery life is 2 to 4 months, depending on how often your dog barks. However, due to greater use during your dog’s training, your first battery may not last as long as replacement batteries.


The Anti-Bark Collar does not spray.

  • Ensure the battery is properly installed
  • Replace the battery
  • Refill the spray
  • Ensure the unit is turned ON

My bark control collar sprays, but my dog keeps barking.

  • Check to make sure the spray nozzle points towards the dog's snout
  • Make sure your dog's hair does not block the spray

When I try to refill the Citronella Spray, the spray leaks out around the Spray Nozzle. Hold the spray can upright. If it is held at an angle, it will not create a good seal; press firmly on the spray can to create a good seal.


Will this work with long-haired dogs? Yes. It may be necessary to trim the hair on your dog’s neck so it does not block the spray from reaching his snout.

Does the spray need to hit my dog’s nose? No. The spray is very fine and simply creates a mist in the region of the snout.

Will my dog stop barking completely? The bark control collar effectively and humanely stops most barking when it is worn by a dog. It should only be worn whenever you don't want your dog to bark. Your dog’s reaction to the collar in terms of their barking will depend on your usage of the collar and the temperament of your dog. A bark collar helps you communicate to your dog when it is okay to bark and when it is not. Some dogs will be trained quickly and as a result may not need to wear the collar long term. Other dogs associate not barking with the collar and will only control their barking when they have the collar on.

How do I refill the unit with more spray?

  • Turn off the unit.
  • Hold the refill spray can upright.
  • Firmly press the nozzle down into the refill port.
  • Hold for 15 seconds or until unit is full.
  • Remove the can.
  • If spray leaks out, you may need to press harder to complete the seal.

1-Year Limited Warranty.
