Within the first 7 to 10 days, your dog will have realised that barking results in the 'unpleasant' smell when wearing the citronella dog collar. The more smell driven or smell sensitive your dog is, the more likely that a spray collar will have a greater impact on your barking dog.
When selecting a barking collar, consider your dog's environment, size, breed and temperament. Citronella Collars are not suitable for large, stubborn and working dogs or if there will be more than one dog barking near your dog whilst wearing the collar. Citronella Collars are effective on small dogs that are smell driven. Please read our Bark Collars By Breed Chart to learn more about finding the right collar for your dog.
