Four kinds of Anti-barking Collars
Electronic Bark Collars
Sometimes called the Static Bark Collar. Dogs feel the static every time they bark. Some brands made adjustable intensity to minimize or increase the shock that you want your pet to receive when barking is uncontrollable.
Citronella Spray Bark Collars
This is the mildest and commonly used type. Although, spray collars are not so practical since you have to replace it when already empty. There is a sensor in the collar which detects the barking sound and makes the citronella scent sprayed automatically. This one is proven to be safe for both pets and humans.
Vibrating Bark Collars
If you do not want to use the electronic type this could be a great alternative. This is totally harmless but still effective to stop the compulsive barking. The vibration may make the dog feel uncomfortable and the urge to bark continuously may be stopped.
This kind of collar emits a high-pitch sound when the sensor detects the barking. The sound produced by the collar is cannot be heard by human ears. The sound works because the dogs are interrupted when they start to create noise. It also vibrates when dogs bark in order to make the collar more sensitive and responsive.
