I have used Citronella collars to great effect. They have a microphone to pick up the sound of the bark and this triggers a puff of citronella which dogs don’t particularly like, but which doesn’t harm them. I recently loaned one to our friend Nick at Urban Haze for a visiting dog who persistently barks at passers by.  Charge up the Citronella Collar, switch the battery to ON and wait for the bark.  Here’s what happened.

Woof – pffft … (confused look)

Little woof – pffft …. (look of recognition)

…. no more woof!

 Smart dog!  Early days yet but apparently the expression on her face was priceless!
