Shop our range of citronella bark collars in Australia
While your dog is a part of your family, there’s nothing worse than excessive barking when they spot another pup on their walk or as a symptom of separation anxiety. Whatever the reason, we have just the thing.
Citronella collars are a safe, humane and painless means of reducing your pup’s incessant barking. To choose the right bark control collar, you should first consider your dog's breed, size, and reason for barking. While there are different bark collars to choose from, citronella collars for dogs are best for smaller breeds that have had water sprayed on them for disciplinary purposes in the past.
Our Barkmate citronella bark collars are water-resistant and rechargeable with a lithium battery. The standard citronella bark collar kit comes with a citronella-scented spray canister, USB charging cable and bark collar equipped with a smart microphone sensor to detect any barking. The collar emits a burst of spray to help stop your dog from barking in its tracks.
Our other types of bark collars include static bark collars, vibrating dog collars and ultrasonic bark deterrents. As a family-owned business, we pride ourselves on providing quality products, expert advice, and unmatched service every time.

How does a citronella dog collar work?
The citronella dog collar has a clever microphone sensor that accurately detects any instances of barking. Rest assured, its microcomputer chip in the collar effectively differentiates the barking from any other noise. The collar then emits a burst of citronella spray to stop your dog from making a sound.
You can easily replace the spray refill port at Dog Master when needed. The two-colour LED will indicate when your citronella collar needs charging via a USB cable.
Are citronella dog collars safe for dogs?
Yes. Citronella collars spray only small amounts of oil, and it has no harmful side effects on the dogs or the environment.
Are citronella collars effective immediately?
All dogs are different and have different levels of drive. Therefore, citronella is more effective on scent-sensitive dogs. The citronella spray is a deterrent and alerts the dog’s senses, with an increased chance of getting their attention. Many barking dogs that don’t like the citronella smell will quickly adapt and stop barking to avoid the unpleasant odour.
One downside to citronella collars is that they don’t offer any other measure of bark control, so if the citronella doesn’t work, you will have to explore other options.
