Dog Shock Collars: Teaching Your Dog Basic Obedience and Breaking Bad Habits

Dog Shock Collars

Dog shock collars are a touchy subject among animal owners. While their goal is to train a dog to follow a set of rules, many people feel they can be cruel to animals. There are many reasons to believe this and more to not believe. Here are some facts and some ideas to consider if you are in the market to purchase a dog shock collar.

First of all, the name itself, dog shock collar, is a turn off. No decent pet owner wants to hurt his pet. But, it is also misleading. The shock created by dog shock collars is minimal and safe to the animal. That is not to say that it's a pleasant experience either. The experience is the same as static shock that we all have felt. It is very minimal and causes just a small amount of harm. The discomfort the animal receives will hopefully teach it to not perform such behavior.

How does a dog shock collar work? The dog shock collars work in different ways. Those that help keep the animal in an area with no fence, work through sensors beneath the ground that trigger the animals collar to shock the pet when it comes to close to no go zone. Others trigger when an animal barks. Again, it is like rubbing your feet on some carpeting. It feels the same as that type of static shock.

The bottom line is this. Dog shock collars are effective in teaching a pet how to behave and how to interact with others and their environment. It is unfortunate that dog shock collars cause pain, but should this be a method of training, it can be understood why it is used. Making a decision on whether or not to purchase a dog shock collar is completely up to the pet owner. Again, there are positive and negatives to dog shock collars that must be examined. Only the pet owner themselves can decide what is the right choice in dog shock collars for their pet.
