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.
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.
