A shock collar sounds like it would be very effective. He runs up to someone, starts barking, gets a shock. It would probably stop the barking at people problem very quickly but not solve the anxiety problem he has which makes him start barking at people in the first place. We have to let him off leash as he needs to run and we are running out of places to take him. He is also being a bad influence on our other dog.
