1. Adjustable Charge Intensity
Modern e-collars have a variety of functions. You can expect to find a vibration mode as well as a warning signal mode that administers a beeping noise. The electric discharge comes with an adjustable feature that allows you to adjust the intensity of the shock that the collar delivers to your pet.
This adjustable feature is especially useful for owners who want to customize the current level to their dog. For instance, a Rottweiler may need a stronger shock than a Poodle.
2. Speed Up Training Time
Most pet owners state that it takes only a few shocks for their dog to correct any misbehavior. Your pet needs to make the initial association between the unwanted behavior and the administration of a shock. After that, they identify the vibration or beeping mode with the electrical discharge, and that becomes enough to stop them in their tracks and correct their behavior, without administering a shock.
Different breeds take different time frames in learning to associate the shock with their behavior. It’s best to make sure your pet is supervised during the first day or two to ensure they receive confirmation on their behavior and associate it with the shock from the collar.
3. Low-cost Solution
Hiring a dog trainer to teach your pooch no to bark or dig up the flower beds can run into the hundreds of dollars in fees. A high-quality e-collar can cost as little as $30, and up to or more than $250, depending on the features.
Good quality e-collars have extensive ranges and can link with perimeter sensors that enable you to train your dog to stay in your yard.
