Dog training anti-barking collar device with scent refill
Our take on the PetSafe GentleSpray® Anti-Bark Collar by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
Cur-tail barking with a whiff of citronella
If you're not crazy about the idea of using static correction to train your dog, PetSafe's GentleSpray Anti-Bark Collar offers a gentle alternative. A built-in microphone detects when your dog barks, then delivers a harmless burst of stain-free hypo-allergenic citronella spray to get your dog's attention and stop him from making noise.
The collar device holds enough spray for 25-30 squirts. An adjustable collar, 6-volt battery, waterproof dispenser, and refill canister are included.

Overview: The PetSafe GentleSpray Anti-Bark Collar effectively and humanely stops your dog from barking when you don't want him to. When the built-in microphone picks up your dog's bark, it triggers a harmless spray of liquid citronella. The 3/4"-wide collar is designed for dogs 6 pounds and up, with neck sizes up to 24".
Citronella Spray: The PetSafe GentleSpray Anti-Bark Collar is designed to interrupt your dog's barking pattern. When the collar detects a bark, it delivers a harmless spray of citronella to distract your dog with a harmless, but unique scent. The scent is non-offensive to humans, and is stain-free and hypo-allergenic. The reservoir holds enough citronella for 25 to 30 sprays. Citronella or unscented spray refills are available from the manufacturer.
Effectiveness: The effectiveness of the GentleSpray Anti-Bark Collar depends upon your usage of the collar and the temperament of the dog. You should notice a reduction in your dog's barking within the first couple of days of wearing the Anti-Bark collar. Some dogs will be trained quickly and may not need to wear the collar for a long term. Other dogs may associate not barking with the collar, and will only control their barking while wearing the collar. It will be necessary to remain consistent with the use of the collar, placing it on your dog when you expect him to be quiet.
Power Requirements: The GentleSpray Anti-Bark collar is powered by the 6-volt RFA-18 battery. Average battery life is 2 to 4 months, depending upon how much your dog barks. A Low Battery indicator light will flash when the battery level has reached a weakened state and needs replacing. Additional batteries can found at many retailers, or from the manufacturer.
Precautions: The GentleSpray Anti-Bark collar should not be worn for more than 12 hours a day. If the collar is worn for too long, or made too tight, the dog could develop skin damage. You should reposition the collar on the dog's neck every hour or two. You should never attach a leash to the electronic collar as this will cause excessive pressure on the collar. A separate collar should be used with a leash.
