It works *too* well
Jamie got his citronella anti-barking collar in the mail on Thursday, and so far it seems to be working. When I first put it on him I pretended to leave and hid, and it doesn't kick in when he just whines, but as soon as he actually barked I heard the citronella spray and he shut up. He seems startled by it which is the whole point. So hopefully this will solve the neighbor problems. But last night I got home and let Jamie out of the den, and I was singing "You're The One That I Want" from Grease for absolutely no reason, loudly and painfully, and I set off the collar! I was pretty close to Jamie, serenading him, and bam, citronella in the face. It definitely shut me up.
