The Gentle Spray Anti Bark Collar is an alternative to shock bark collars. The “shock” bark collars are controversial because many people feel they harm the dog. Those collars provide a literal “shock” to the dog to make it stop barking.
The Gentle Spray uses a citronella spray that initiates when the dog barks. The spray goes off in front of the dog and is not really sprayed in the dog’s face.
Vets say dogs don’t like the citronella smell. The person who tested it for Deal or Dud used it for two weeks with great success.
It is a little pricey. It’s in the $40-$50 range.
