hi, my dog is 1 now and every time i take him for a walk he does nothing but bark at everything and anything, do them collars work, or is there anything you can advice, he is really soft and if anyone goes to stroke him he is fine, but just barks all the time at people and anything.
thanks

Get a cat, they never bark, honest.

Some trainers recommend that you reward them when they are quiet, and train them to keep quiet that way.
But now my dog just makes a noise in the hope he will get a treat for shutting up again!

aww your dog is cute! look into DAP you can get diffusers for your home but apparently you can get collars now too. They just give off a appeasing pheromone which help relax and calm dogs. Which inturn may help to stop your dog from barking. The spray collars can stress your dog even more so I would personally not use them for my dog.

Other than that the pet corrector spray is meant to be good - we used it to stop my dog from stealing food but they say can be used for barking etc.

Had to do a double take on the title, thought I was on the wrong forum for a minute there.

Have you tried a training collar like this The Terminator 2

I used a static anti bark collar not the nicest way of getting them to stop but it's like a little shock from a shopping trolley. I dont use it anymore because it worked her barking has calmed right down.

+1 worked on my Mum's Springer, buit make sure you sray the back of their head and they don't see you do it, on the other hand though we are still trying to stop our King Charles barking (strangely he only does it when on a lead) - he got wise to the fact it was us spraying him afetr a while

Kick him in the gonads. Might still whine a little though.
