Presented by the manufacturer as the more humane alternative to electric shock collars and ultrasonic anti-bark devices, PetSafe spray collar uses the unpleasant citronella fragrance to correct your dog’s behavior and make him understand that barking can have disagreeable consequences.
The sensor attached to the collar detects the sound and vibrations produced in the body while barking, emitting the citronella burst, which is completely safe and harmless, but annoying enough to make him not want to feel it again. This way, in just a matter of days, you and your family (and maybe your neighbors too) will know again the feeling of living in a peaceful and quiet place.
PetSafe citronella bark collar is probably the anti-bark device most appreciated by dog owners in general. Because it does not have any age, breed or size restriction, you can safely use this anti-bark device with any of your dogs. Of course, if the problem is with a puppy younger than 6 months, you should first consult a veterinarian to discover what makes him bark.
Most customers have observed many advantages when using this device: it does not cause any kind of pain and it is extremely comfortable for dogs, it isn’t unpleasant for the owners and it doesn’t inhibit the barking completely.
There are some facts that you should take into consideration before using this collar. One of them would be that the sensor emits the “correction” only when it detects loud barking and it is not turned off by screeching or other crying sounds that your dog can make; so if you want to stop these manifestations as well, you will have to use the remote to emit the spray.
Then, you have to pay attention to see how your dog reacts to the citronella fragrance: while some of them may have allergic reactions, others may simply love it and not perceive it as a punishment.
