The Proper Fitting and Placement of the Bark Collar Citronella for Small Dogs

The proper fit and placement of the bark collar are critical to its effectiveness. Below we will guide you on how to properly fit and place the collar on your dog.

Fitting & Placement of the Collar:

  •  Have your dog stand comfortably to ensure that you have the proper fit of the collar.
  •  Place the collar high on your dog’s neck and close to the ears and with the spray nozzle facing upward. Note: It’s important that the spray reaches the dog’s mouth to be most effective.
  •  Re-check the fit of the collar as your dog becomes more comfortable wearing it. Allow your dog to wear the collar for several minutes then re-check the fitting.
  •  You may also wish to trim off the excess of the collar once you certainly have the proper fit. To do this, mark the desired length of the collar with the pen. Trim off the excess and seal the edge of the cut collar by applying a flame along the edge. Note: When checking the length, be sure to consider if your dog will grow or if it will have a winter coat.

Refilling the Collar:

  •  Make sure the unit is turned off.
  •  Hold the refill spray can upright, firmly press the nozzle down into the refill port. Hold for about 15 seconds or until the unit is full and then remove the can.
  •  Now, turn the unit on. Using a coin, turn the battery module to the on position. The LED light will flash yellow letting you know the unit is on. Now the bark control collar is ready to place back on your dog.

You should notice a big difference in your dog’s barking in just a few short days in using a collar. It is very important to continue consistent usage of the citronella bark collar and particularly, make sure your dog’s wearing the collar whenever you don’t want them to bark.
