Wiley we used the citronella collar to break the counter surfing problem. Your back would be turned for a millisecond and he would have eaten dinner right off the counter. I ended up ambushing him, lol. I put some things on the counter, and as soon as he went for it, I got him! Stopped the problem in about a day.
I never thought about using it on KC to curb the barking issue. Good suggestion!
I teach all my dogs "No Bark" Expose them to whatever makes them bark and then either use a canned air spray right next to them with the "no Bark" command when they start (my Prefered method) or you can use an air horn and the no bark command. or even a can with pennies in it dropped right next to them when they start to bark. My dogs do not bark unless someone comes to the door, and when I say NO bark they stop.
Anyone try a spray bottle with water? I am having the same problem and the can full of pennies is not working.
He used to listen to us and stop barking, all of a sudden it has gotten really bad. This past weekend we took him with us and were in a motel and we had a terrible time every time someone walked by. I will get the citronella spray if I have to, just wondered if the water might work?
Step it up one and go to the air can.... some dogs actually see water spray as a game, the whole point is to distract the dog from barking, this is done with noise. If the air can does'nt work try the air horn, if that doesn't work then go to the citronella collar.
