I have had Elkhounds(5) for 30 years and have had great sucess with the citronella no-bark collar. It requires some diligence on your part-ie off when inside;on when outside(or whenever there are persistent barking situations, maybe shaving a piece of the neck, so the mic is not muffled, etc., as well as being there to reinforce "NO BARK!" verbally the first few times as it sprays. After a few times, my dogs were very, very quiet as soon as the collar was snapped on. However, I must admit, one of my current Elkhounds, who is not the brightest bulb, treats the spray as a game.
