Shock collars have multiple training uses. Teach your dog their boundaries and install sensors around the perimeter of your home. Should your dog attempt an escape, the sensor activates the collar as soon as they come in proximity to the boundary, keeping them in your property. If you own a problem pooch that doesn’t get along with other dogs, a shock collar is an invaluable tool to help you stop them fighting with one another. When your dogs go at it, you have the option to use a remote control to activate the collar. Upon shock treatment, the dog will withdraw from battle immediately.
Want to stop your dog from digging up the garden? Do they continually ignore your commands to get off the bed or furniture? A shock collar provides a reinforcement tool to your instructions. When you tell them to stop digging, and they refuse, use the shock collar to back up your authority.
Shock collars are a temporary solution to alter your dog’s behavior and improve their relationship with your dominance in the hierarchy of your home. If you let your dog exert their dominance, by permitting them to sleep on the bed against your will, for example, then they’re likely to carry this behavior into every other area of their life.
A shock collar is an effective way to attract their attention and control your dog’s actions. Trainers and veterinarians recommend shock collars for disciplining your dog when all else fails. Purchasing a collar rated for your dog is essential. For example, Poodles have different collar requirements to a Mastiff’s due to their size, and they don’t require the same amount of shock to change their attitude.
