Review of the Best Citronella Spray Collar

It also seems to have the most effect, I’m guessing either because of the aim or the potency of the citronella spray. Apple wasn’t distracted enough with other collars so she’d continue barking a few more times after the spray, but the Innotek startles her enough to forget whatever she was barking at.
One problem is that without the bark collar on, Apple knows she’s safe and continues barking. But thankfully she’s only nuisance barking when I’m at work and unable to comfort her alone at home, so that’s fine.
Also, the battery and spray canisters don’t last for a very long time, probably around 2 weeks for me. Of course, this will differ depending on how often your dog barks. They’re not exactly cheap either, like $10 for a canister and $5 for batteries. Thankfully, Apple figured out pretty quick that it was the collar spraying her and learned to stop barking when she had it on, so I only had to buy refills once. After that, just having the collar on was pretty much enough.
I only used the bark collar to buy us some time – I was really busy in my career and didn’t have time for proper training for Apple. Unfortunately her barking was getting out of hand and the cops were called on us for noise violations while I was at work, so this device was a lifesaver. After my big project at work was finished and I finally had some free time, Apple and I did some dog training which removed the problem entirely.
The course we went through was Dove Cresswell’s which I very highly recommend. She’s a popular Hollywood dog trainer and has very positive teaching techniques. It’s a very fun course and extremely easy to understand. Best of all, the lessons are in video format, which is so much better than a PDF for showing you how to do the training. There’s even a full 60 day money back guarantee, which made me feel a lot better before I bought. The training does take a little time though, but it’s a great investment – Apple is now better behaved than ever, even without the bark collar. She even learned a couple of new tricks to impress the guests with!

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.
