I tried it. Colman was TERRIFIED! He ran and hid. He wouldn't come out for more than an hour. If I picked up the can he would run and hide. That was the first and last time I used it.
I think he has a noise phobia. My agility trainer wanted me to begin clicker training on him. I clicked and the same thing happened. Since a clicker is not as loud, I tried it for about 3 weeks. He would not even accept his favorite treats! I decided not to use it.
I also tried a vibrating collar. It vibrated when he barked. That did the trick for a while. Unfortunately, the collar started vibrating randomly so I threw it away. I wanted a remote control vibrating collar. I guess they don't make them.
The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.
It isn't really that loud. I think it is just the quick hissing sound that get them to stop. I have been hissing at them myself and they stop and look at me. I know that it isn't a matter of them getting frightened because Marley runs and hides it something is scaring her. And Barkley tries to sniff the can. He isn't scared very easily in fact he is very curious when it comes to loud noises. Bentley just freezes in his tracks. I plan on using it to train Bentley to stop jumping on me from behind. I have tried everything else. He won't jump on my front but he gets me from behind so I never know when it's coming.
Sounds interesting. I'd like to hear more about it. Do you spray them? Where do you spray it? Where did you buy it? Does it have an odor?
Whenever I''m tempted to eat something I shouldn''t, I remember the following: "Don''t eat for the moment''s pleasure, for when that moment''s gone, the consequences will stay with you, from that moment on."
I found a quick fix for barking. It is called Pet Corrector. I bought a can of this stuff yesterday and it is a great product. The problem I have had is my three Maltipoos bark and jump on anyone in the house. This behavior only happens when I am home I have been told that the dogs don't behave like that when I am no home. My dogs are friendly and very socialized and are not afraid of strangers at all. I was ready to hire a trainer to come to the house for 299.00. I came across some posts online saying that Pet Corrector worked for their Maltese crazy barking. The spray makes a hissing noise. My dogs just stopped barking and jumping on my visitors immediately. They aren't acting scared of the noise and they don't run if they see me pick up the spray can. They just stop what they are doing. It really works. Lorraine
