Dog Training. Dog Behaviour. Aversive Collars in Dog Training

One problem with aversive collars (Shock, Choke, Citronella Spray)
I have found over the years in this Consultancy is that it can be a very easy and speedy process for a dog to develop and learn a negative association with the creature (human or other) or object, present when the gadget (of particular effect Shock Collars) is used.
Then, a negative reaction is almost ‘flagged’ for that inadvertent person or object and extensive retraining to build a more ‘normal’ or neutral response again may have to be undertaken.
I would rather get to the bottom of your situation, for long term change,
