The device sprays citronella, an oil commonly found in insect repellent and perfume, whenever a high decibel of sound is reached, discouraging dogs to bark. The scent is one that is not harmful to dogs but one that they dislike.

The model and Suicide Squad star and her husky Leo were staying in Claridge’s Hotel in London where she is currently promoting the film.

Speaking to The Daily Mail a representative of Dogs Trust in the UK said the collar is not recommended as it is an adverse measure to take.

“At the Dogs Trust we don’t recommend the use of any adverse technique or equipment for any kind of behaviour issue.

“You have to find out the cause of the dog’s behaviour rather than punish it.”

The model  debuted the dog at the Chanel Haute Couture show in January and he has been by her side ever since. The dog also accompanied his model owner to Paris Fashion Week this year.
