After trying many different forms of positive reinforcement to correct our new dog's behavior problems (to no avail), I found this product while doing research online.
The SafePet remote sprayer remedied our dog's issues within the first 2 days. His barking is under control (we want him to bark, but we also want him to stop when we tell him to stop), as well as a few other "indoor manners"-type issues (we adopted him from a rescue that saved him from a kill-shelter, he had no "house manners" when we got him).
In my opinion, this product is worth every dollar.

I have a 7 months old Doberman.
He was barking when we're eating, sleeping, sitting in the back yard, dogs. My husband and I have purchase 2 products before this one. First one was just a spray bark collar by Primier and after Petsafe shock collar for big dogs. None of them worked when we need it.
This is one you just say "Quiet" and then sprayed him. No more barking in my house. I have 2 kids under the age of 4. They are so happy to able to have their naps.

We have a very territorial 75 pound german pointer - barks at everybody and everything that comes within sight of our yard. We purchased this collar mainly to control the barking. It has worked great for us.
First time she barked, we said "Quiet", beeped her, and then sprayed her. She immediately stopped barking. Next few times she barked, we just had to say Quiet and then beep her to get her to stop. After a couple of days, she stopped on command unless there was a large temptation (e.g., group of dogs being walked in front of house, etc.). Even then, it only took 1 or 2 beeps and 1 spray to get her attention. We have sprayed her 5-7 times over-all and do not anticipate needing to spray her ever again (at least for barking).
Now, we let her bark a couple of times when she sees a stranger, etc. and then we issue the command. She immediately stops barking after the Quiet command 90% of the time. After 1 or 2 beeps, she always stops.
We may use this collar to control other behaviors after we have her barking 100% under control - meaning she always stops barking on command. The rechargeable batteries are a nice touch / money saver. We are very happy with this product.

I'm returning this product

I agree 100% with the previous reviewer. I have a 11 pound mini poodle and the collar never fits right. Also, the spray consistently failed to work. It was a waste of money.

I am taking this collar back for a refund.
The spray is always empty. I can hit the spray at the most 5 to 7 times and then I have to refill it. And I could never smell the spray I could only hear the puff to know that it was supposedly working. My dog was momentarily startled by it but I could never really try the device out consistently because, again, it was always empty.
It is way to big and irritating for a small dog. My miniature schnauser was constantly shaking her head because it annoyed her, hence it never stayed in place. If I did the collar up tight enough to even try and get it to stay in place it was choking her.
With these collars one size should not fit all - I can see where the size of this device may not bother a bigger dog but for a small dog, forget it.
The tone for aversion did nothing. They say only a dog can hear it but I could hear it and it didn't bother my ears or obviously my dogs as it appeared to not even hear it.
