DutchKarin is right too. one time I had my puppy in a pen and he wanted to get out and was whining and whining. so I squirted him repeatedly whenever he whined with water from a spritzer bottle and after a few minutes he was freaking out like I've never seen before. his focus became on escaping the situation and nothing else. I never tried that again, negative reinforcement can definitely make things worse sometimes. i feel like a prong collar would be even worse than a spray of water
