Citronella Collars versus Shock Collars
A lot of people tend to prefer shock collars versus citronella collars, but I always thought that was super inhumane. I mean, who wants to get electricity coursing through their body? Not me, and I certainly wouldn’t want that for my dog Apple either.
But I get it – if you’re at your wit’s end to find a solution for your barking dog and your neighbors are breathing down your neck, there’s not really many options and you might feel like you have to do whatever it takes. But I just found some academic research from Cornell University that says citronella collars are actually MORE effective than shock collars!
Check it out here: http://www.news.cornell.edu/chronicle/96/6.6.96/barking.html
Basically, their research says that dogs actually tolerate strange odors less than painful shocks, so they learn not to bark faster using a citronella collar versus a shock collar.
So please, if you’re considering a shock collar, you shouldn’t anymore!

Who Am I
Hi, I'm Han Chang,
I have an adorable Scottish Terrier named Apple who developed a barking problem after we moved from a house to an apartment complex. She just wouldn't stop barking if someone rang the doorbell, and needless to say the neighbors were not happy and even called the cops a couple of times while Apple was home alone.
I tried a bunch of different ways to get her to stop until I found an instant solution - the citronella collar. It's safe, humane, and effective! Although it's temporary, the spray collar will buy us time for me and Apple to properly train her to stop barking.
