Have you consulted with a trainer or behaviorist? What steps have you taken to address the problem?

I have tried a bark collar that makes a sound when she barks she just got used to it then someone said a spray of cold water in her face but that only helped with the barking for as long as you sprayed her the stress just escalated, another dog trainer said make a loud noise to get her attention that just didnt work

The things you've tried probably are making her even more "ramped up" or excited. I would suggest you contact a trainer near you from this list: Search for Professionals.

You might also want to post this in the Training and Behavior section, as you will probably get more input.

Is it possible to take a video of her doing this and post it in a new thread in the training section? I imagine it would help some more experienced members offer good advice to see the behavior.
