PetSafe Innotek Spray commander was created especially for those moments when you had already tried all traditional methods of teaching your dog what is appropriate and what is not in his behavior. The fact that the harmless, but annoying spray fragrance is controlled by you through a remote makes this device suitable for correcting any form of inappropriate manners: from barking when it’s not allowed, to entering or stepping on different surfaces and chasing other animals or humans.
Thus, whenever you observe that your dog is misbehaving, you press the button and the unpleasant smell will make your dog stop from whatever he was doing. Gradually, he will come to associate a certain activity with the disagreeable fragrance and will learn to avoid it.
Unlike the invisible fence or the anti-bark devices, PetSafe Innotek spray commander gives you the possibility to correct more than one aspect of your dog’s behavior. The biggest advantage is that it gives the possibility to do it without causing any physical or mental damage and without making him associate the “punishment” with you. Thus, after just some weeks, you will be able to enjoy every single moment spent with your dog without giving him reasons to distrust you.
Before using this dog spray collar, you should first make sure that it is suitable for the age and health condition of your dog (especially if you plan to use it with a puppy or a very small dog). Also, you have to keep in mind that the remote can reach up to 250 feet, but, if the batteries get weaker, it will only work on much smaller distances. Another drawback would be that, if you need to use it very often, the citronella spray will consume immediately and it might turn out to be too expensive on the long run.
