The best bark control device is a spray bottle filled with plain water. When the dog barks inappropriately, spray it once in the face with the water and firmly say "No." (The spray should be set between "mist" and " stream" so you are not hurting the dog but he/she is also directly feeling the water.)

This method works for many behavior corrections, and does not hurt the dog. Better yet, the dog is learning to obey your voice. I've found I only need to use the water two to four times. Be sure to reward your dog when it stops the behavior with praise and treats!
