If you're home a lot or your dog only barks at certain times or people you may want to buy an ultrasonic remote. With the press of a button these devices send out a ultrasonic tone that dogs hear. They hear the tone and stop barking. If you want something that you don't have to control there are a couple collars you can get.
The shock collar isn't for everybody, but if you understand that it won't hurt your pet it may be a good option. The collar detects when your dog barks by microphone or sensor. Every time it detects a bark it sends out a static type shock to your dog. The shock startles your dog and it stops barking.
