If they're willing to spend that much, I'd get a Dogtra or Einstein. But I have always used cheap bark collars, either Petsafe or Innotek. The last one I got was a Walmart Guardian, which looks and works a lot like the Petsafe and it's been well over a year and it has never needed a new battery. My cheap Innoteks last forever, the Petsafes only lasted about a year.

I think a bark collar is a good option in this case. I think it may actually have a positive effect on him, making him less stressy and reducing his anxiety. Sometimes the way dogs react to things are not the way humans think assume they will. IME dogs wearing bark collars often learn to inhibit their impulse and make better choices. If they can't get themselves all wound up barking, they tend to not escalate to the other stuff. I never understand why citronella is considered a less aversive option, since dog's noses are so extremely sensitive. IME the citronella collars are also most likely to malfunction or break. And some dogs (sounds like this guy is one of them) just don't seem to care or put it together with the behavior.

I would train him to the collar first though because if he doesn't understand what makes the stim go away and he's panicking in a crate, he could get more and more freaked out. So he needs to wear it and learn that the collar means to be quiet before using it while he's crated. Most dogs learn that very quickly though.
