My dogs are fairly laid back with a few exceptions. One is when someone they love comes over to the house. They get very over-excited. Second, is when someone rings the doorbell or knocks at the door. They begin to bark like crazy hopping around for absolutely no reason. It drives us crazy. So, I was really excited when this product arrived at my doorstep (and, ironically, the dogs barked when they heard the FedEx guy drop it off at the door).
The Pet Corrector is from the UK-based dog training company The Company of Animals. The device is basically a can of compressed air that makes a loud, hissing sound when you press the nozzle. This sound is designed to stop unwanted behavior such as barking, jumping or stealing food. While it may not cure the problem right away, it interrupts the behavior enough for the dog to stop.
