Chihuahua by heamad

Anyone have a chihuahua?  My little one is 5 1/2 years old.  Her name is Oscar, YES, she is a girl!!  Anyone have any ideas to curb barking???  We have tried shaking money in a tin can, a spray bottle with water squirted in her face and a bark collar that makes a noise when she barks.  Short of buying a collar that zaps (not really for that) I don't know what to do. 

She is a short hair chihuahua and has lots of energy and loves to bark when people walk by the house or come in.   She is a great dog and really good with my 2 1/2 year old daughter; which really surprises me because she is a snappy dog if you get too close, too quickly.

Those little dogs do like to bark. lol  I know some people don't like doing it but just for training only you can buy a little muzzel and only put it on when Oscar barks and not for long.  Eventually Oscar should figure it out that she doesn't get the muzzle if she doesn't bark.  Not sure if it will work as well with her being over 5 now or if it's better to train as a pup though.
