Well, my barking collar backfired. Apparently it had some kind of malfunction, that when hit against metal it would go off and vibrate and scare dog. His food and water dishes are metal. His tags on collar are of course metal. I turned the collar off now, he hasnt barked. Wow he was a fast learner there. I now have to teach him that everything he thought was bad (aka pretty much anything metal) is safe.

Any suggestions? He wont even drink unless i give it to him in a different dish now, and ducks his head and tucks tail just to walk past dishes. :( And he is back to not eating also.
