It works well for my Border Collie, 35-40lbs. However my Black Lab, 90lbs decided to bark AT the collar till it ran out of juice. That's just MY lab for you though. I have used similar collars on my rehab dogs and I would say it works 85% of the time. My one annoyance with this one is that it sprays when you turn it on. I guess as a check feature it is nice to be sure it's working, but I just find it wasteful.
Compared to other brands, it is pretty similar. Citronella collars have the added bonus as a mosquito repellent, which is nice.
Beware long haired dog and loud drinker dog owners. This collar will spray when it senses the louder slurping noises of a extra joweled dogs. Also long hair breeds such as Chow Chow or Pyrenees may find it difficult to work because the spray can get caught in the fur and the surprise spray to the face is half the deterrent. The smell after a while doesn't bother the dog, it is the initial spray to the face that really sells this collar. Dogs don't like to be sprayed in the face and neither do you. They learn quickly if I bark, I get sprayed. Works best on medium to short hair dogs in my opinion.
innotek automatic no-bark dog collar
Im so disappointed in this collar. This isn't the first citronella collar we've had, so my dog is already trained to know if he's wearing it not to bark loud. Unfortunately this dogtek collar goes off regardless of him barking or not. If he shakes too much it sprays him! Not only that but the way they setup up the actual collar is incredibly bizarre-- doesn't fit right. Would never buy again.
Dogtra YS 600 Stubborn Dog No-Bark Collar
We needed something to help with the noise from our beagles. They both tend to be skittish and bark at their own shadows. We recently moved into a house that has no carpet and is all hard wood. I am not sure if I am just noticing it more or the sound dampening is just not happening now. These items are great at distracting the dogs once they start barking. They also both now recognize that their noise affects the citronella spray. Unfortunately, being a sound detecting device, the unit sprays citronella when they shake their heads and their collars bang up against it. To get around this we usually spray the unit before turning it on and then turn it off. We have found that once the recognize what it is and how it works they bark a lot less.
