Another alternative is the halter harness. This finds favour with some owners of large pulling dogs, as it controls the head and, just as in leading a horse, controlling the head helps greatly in controlling the whole animal. There are other forms of collars, such as the choker, but I feel that you need to be extremely well informed and careful when using one of these.
Using positive reinforcement such as praise and accolades as part of the training to amplify his non-barking will also help with the process and reduce the chance of him becoming accepting or accustomed to the spray. According to reports in leading animal hospital and veterinary journals most dog owners who have tried both types of no bark collars preferred citronella spray over shock for their dogs, and one university study showed an over 88% success rate with the citronella no bark collar as compared to about 44% with the electronic shock collar.
The weight of the chain and the size of the links on the training collar are very important when choosing a training collar. The weight of the chain should be appropriate for the size and weight of the dog. For instance, you would not use a heavy chain on a 10 pound dog, just as you would not use a very light chain on a 100 pound dog. When using a training collar, it is very important to place the collar on the dog properly. The collar must be placed on the dog properly in order to be effective.
