How Does This Work to Train Your Dog? The Citronella no bark collar works by spraying in front of his nose and face when a sensor or microphone detects the barking and is triggered. By thus interrupting your pets barking consistently your pet will come to associate being sprayed with his barking behavior. With a remote citronella training collar the owner has a hand-held remote transmitter with which he can deliver a short or slightly longer burst of citronella as the situation or dogs personality and response dictates. Of course with the remote version, your timing is critical. In order to avoid confusing your dog, it must only be used during the actual barking. Some units even have a reward tone to reinforce desirable behavior.
In addition to being fitted and sized properly, the training collar must be used properly as well. The training collar is designed to provide a reminder, not a punishment. It is very important to never use steady pressure with a training collar. A training collar works by providing a sharp pressure, followed by an immediate release of pressure.
To use an electronic collar effectively, first let the dog adjust to the feel of it around its neck and then make sure to keep the transmitter with you at all times, as it is a powerful device. Use the lowest possible stimulation level - only if your dog does not respond to shock level one should you increase the degree. If a dog panics or starts vocalizing, decrease the stimulation.
