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.
If the connecting piece of the training collar is placed anywhere except on the top of the dogs head, the training collar will not loosen properly when the leash is slackened. This constant pressure on the training collar will be counterproductive, since the dog will not understand what is being asked of it or why the pressure is not being relieved when it does as it is asked.
When a dog exhibits aggressive behavior, like biting, do not use the electronic collar. This kind of behavior is better suited for a professional trainer. And dont use the collar arbitrarily - only when you want to deliver a command you plan on teaching the dog, should you use it. Furthermore, training sessions should be located in places your dog is familiar with and should be short, lasting 10 to 15 minutes long, and positive. A dogs focus should be on the trainer and any good behavior should be rewarded through play or treats. Dont abuse or overuse the electronic collar, as that is animal abuse, a crime that can land you in prison. Remember, a dog is a mans best friend.
