Let's talk about pets that are close to your heart, tell us something about your pet. How do you take good care of them, how do you train them? What good memories do you have with your pet?

I'm looking for ways on how to train dogs, until I saw these dog training collars [nofollow] which is primarily used to correct bad habits such as barking, digging, and chewing, a training collar can transform a misbehave dog into a well obedient dog. What do you think? Are these actually effective or is it just some sort of industry push to sell products? Any suggestion will be helpful to me.

go into dog training school. You'll learn much more without the need of electric collars.

These are illegal in the UK, just train a dog properly using the methods which are widely available and which don't involve cruelty to your pet.

I have seen the shock collar used in conjunction with invisible fencing around a yard. The collar emits an audible noise when the dog gets close. If it goes over the boundary, it gets a mild shock. It takes only a couple of shocks for the dog to learn to heed the noise, then the shock isnt even used. So yes, effective. But training classes are also good.

Invisible fencing also requires training. You need to spend several weeks with your dog learning the perimeter (marked by flags). The collars beep when they get close to the electric boundary, and you train your dog to turn away from the flags when he hears the beeping noise, gradually removing the flags that mark the boundary. You don't just let your dog run around getting shocked until he figures it out.

Shock collars are just for lazy owners and unnecessarily cruel.

I would suggest any owner who wants to use one should wear it for a week and see how they feel

My neighbor bought some kind of training collar that beeped and, I guess, shocked her dog every time it barked. So all day and night I got to hear the dog barking, followed by a series of incredibly annoying electronic beeps. It didn't work to curtail the barking, but now the noise was twice as annoying for neighbors and also drove the dog nuts. Just train your dog.

Dont equate humans with animals. Horse owners use electric fencing to contain horses, too. Same deal. They get shocked once or twice, and learn to stay away. The shock isnt any greater to them than it is to you when you walk across carpeting and touch metal and get zapped. Dont overdramatize. Though there are some stupid people in the world who could use a shock collar. Maybe Trump every time he sends out one of his stupid tweets. Though I doubt he would learn anything. Animals are more intelligent that way. 😄

Positive reinforcement works better than shock collars. In fact, I had one dog that was so defiant that he'd ignore the thing all together and it would even make him worse.

Its usually the people not the pets that are the problem. If you don't have the time to train a animal properly, don't get one at all. Get a robot instead.  ;)
Also this show has some really good tips. Its a must listen for pet owners.

I have four dogs and two cats. All rescues. My dogs are my world. I love spending my time with them. Also, they are my favorite subjects to photograph. I also own a pet sitting business. Being able to spend all day with animals is heaven!

I agree. The point is to train the dog to respond to the noise so you dont have to use the shock, so yes, still training involved. But the same dog owners who love overshocking their dogs are the same ones who would chain them in the backyard, or use choke collars on them, etc. so theres all kinds of animal cruelty going on. 😥

The humans need the shock collar, not the dogs. Shock collars are effective when used properly. You cant fix stupid. And dogs bark. If you dont want to hear your dog barking, dont get a dog. Simple fix, no training involved.


I know a person who had an invisible fence and shock collar on the dog. They lived on a cul-de-sac, but she didnt want the dog roaming the neighborhood. The dog got shocked twice, and that was it. The dog had the freedom to roam the yard to her hearts content. The dog only wore the collar when she went outside. It was a great solution for my friend.

In that case get cats - they will train you.

The dog probably still already knew he wasn't supposed to leave the yard though. I mean, it only works if the owner has some positive and encouraging interaction. Just tossing the fence up and telling it to go play wouldn't be helpful.

The fences and collars isn't the real issue, pet owners being stupid is the issue.

Freal though, I have a cat that watches movies ... alone ... She basically comes and sits at the office door until I walk out to turn a movie on for her. She does the same if the food bowl is even partially empty.
