Chemical Bark Collar

Gearlog has an article about a chemical bark collar. The premise is that when phydeaux barks, he gets a little shot near the snout of cintronella.

Now, this seems cool to me, and a lot less trouble than shock collars. We’ve seen those before, and with a dog with a great deal of fur, it’s tough to make ’em work. The dog just laughs at you after a while. This thing though seems like the best gadget of all to keep the pup quiet.

Of course, with my dogs, they’re just as likely to find an attraction to the smell, and suddenly I’ll have little puppy cintronella addicts. I wonder if there’s a twelve-step program for that? 🙂
