There are many people that would argue that shock collars are inhumane and cruel but shock collars are made to help the dog. If the dog does not learn to listen to his master he could end up hurt or even worst dead. Have you ever had a dog run into the street while you were calling him to come back and then he got hit by a car. This would not happen to a dog that had been trained by shock collars.
Dogs that are trained with shock collars do not have to wear the collar all the time. They only have to wear it until they learn how to listen to their master. It is for the dogs on safety. These collars do not harm your dog. Experts have said that the shock from one of these collars is like an electric static shock to us. It isn’t painful but it is a bit aggravating.
All the shock collar does is gets the dogs attention. They learn much quicker with these collars because it is annoying to get shocked when they do wrong. You should also give them a treat when they do something right. This will help to teach them much quicker.
They should be able to have the collar taken off fairly quickly if you use the shock collar and treats while training them. If you are not familiar with a shock collar it is very important that you read the instructions that come with it before you try to use it.
There are several settings on a shock collar and you do not want to hurt your dog. It is always best to start out on the lowest setting. Once your dog is trained the collar can come off and they will still listen to your commands as if the collar were still on.
There are different collars for different trainings. Before you buy your collar you should speak with the person selling them and tell them what it is you are wanting to train your dog to do. You should also measure your dogs neck before you go buy the collar so that you can be sure you get the right size.
There are shock collars for a lot of different things. You can buy shock collars to keep your dog from barking. It will give your dog a little jolt every time he barks. It wont take him long to figure out why he is getting jolted and the barking will stop and the shock collar can come off.
Unlike the barking shock collar that does not have a device for you to press the training collars do. When you are training your dog to stop barking you do not need to press a button to send a shock because the collar does that on it’s on. But with a training collar the collar is not able to tell if the dog is doing what you want so you have to press the button to send a jolt through the collar.
