There are citronella collars that discourage nusiance barking. Instead of an electric shock, they squirt a puff of citronella oil when the dog barks. The dog does not like the smell and barks less because he/she gets negative feedback each time he/she barks.

They are about $60 at major petstores or on Amazon.

HuH. I never even think to give him nothing what can harm! Any "drug" he have is from vet when he is sick, rearly!

Any food or other chemical you give your dog to change his behaviour is a drug.

Remember, you are the Master, the Alpha, the Leader of the Pack to which your dog belongs. Be firm, not mean. When giving the dog a command, it should be sharp, like a bark, that way it will know you are talking to it. Take the time to learn your dog, to learn how to train it and yourself. One of the best things you can do is take it to an obedience class. The class will teach both of you how to respect one another, how to read one another. It will be money well spent.

Does your dog get enough exercise? Each breed is different and some require a lot more exercise than the average dog. This can either mean a long walk or a good run (once or twice a day). Either way, the exercise burns all the stored up energy that they have. If you don't get them out enough, they get frustrated, antsy, and can start displaying that frustration with a variety of "bad behaviors" like excessive barking, chewing up things, digging holes in the backyard, etc. They simply don't have any better way of telling you that they have energy to burn. You'll know if your dog is getting enough when they are more content, calm and quiet after getting what they need. (Think of barking like a crying baby).

Some dogs have an instinctive need to bark and alert you to things. The key is to teach him/her what are good things to bark at and what are not good things. Sometimes a spray bottle full of water will work. Dog starts to back spray the dog in the face and give him a command. The trick is using this consistent command and awarding the dog when he is quiet after the command is given. But he does need to be allowed to bark at some things.
