I've looked at some bark collars but im not sure which ones to get. I just want to get one for each of the dogs while they ride in the car. One that just sprays something, not sure if i want a shock one, just something that will let the dogs know that they arent suppose to bark in the car, whenever they see someone they bark like crazy. Im planning a day trip or weekend trip to the beach befor my due date and right now if we took the dogs without bark collars they would drive us crazy, lol.

Anti-bark collars are best used in situations where you can not influence the dog's behavior. When the dog is in your company, it is a fairly simple matter to stop the barking by more conventional methods. Obviously you can't deal with barking dogs while driving at 75 mph on the interstate, but you can work up to that. Take them on short drives where you can pull over at will, or have someone else drive while you deal with the dogs.

It's much easier to crate them so they can't see out and do all that barking. It's also a safer way to travel.
We do have a big crate that i put both of them in. They can still see out the holes and bark at people n things, I didnt really see a diff in putting them in the crate other than its safer for them. It didnt really help with the barking though.

Would this be worth a shot?

Keep one very important thought, when one dog barks and gets shocked or both dogs bark at same time and get shocked with both in kennel you could have a bloodbath. I don't care how well they get along together 2 dogs, 2 collars, 1 crate is very, very, very, very dangerous. I hope all the very's get your attention.

That redirected aggression annoys the hell out of me...as natural as it is. Mine will stop on command but, I've never been able to curb it completely.
I know the solution but, I can't live that way......(only one dog).
