Shock Collars For Dogs
Shock collars for dogs, are a popular, safe, and effective means of dog training and/or containment. Also known as electric collars, e-collars, or dog training collars, shock collars for dogs use the principles of aversion training to condition your dog to avoid certain behaviors (or areas) using a negative stimulus. Aversion training, or avoidance training, is a time-tested training method that works by pairing a negative consequence with a certain behavior, place, or thing to teach the dog to avoid it. Dog Training collars can be used as effective training method if used properly, these devices are not intended as a punishment device and should be used in a conservative manner to correct nuisance or undesirable behavior such as jumping, barking or digging.
What Is An E-Collar?
An e-collar (also referred to as a shock collar, an electric collar, or a training collar for dogs) is a battery-operated training collar and handheld remote used for a variety of training applications for many different dogs. The dog owner uses the remote to activate the stimulation function on the collar. The stimulation may be a sound, vibration, electric pulse, or a combination of two or all three.
How Does A Remote Trainer Work?
A remote training (or e-collar) system is two fold; there is a receiver collar and a remote transmitter. The handheld remote transmits a signal to the receiver collar worn by your dog. Depending on the e-collar system you use, the remote and collar may be capable of emitting a noise, vibration, and/or electric pulse to get the attention of your dog. The buttons on the remote or receiver collar will allow you to set the intensity level of the stimulation.
Is An E-Collar Safe & Humane?
E-collar training is not only effective; it is also safe and humane. Many people hear the term ‘shock collar’ and immediately jump to the conclusion that the e-collar is extremely painful and therefore inhumane. This is simply not true. A low level e-collar shock is akin to dragging your feet across the carpet and then touching a doorknob, it’s startling and perhaps even unpleasant but by no means painful, harmful, or dangerous. Many dog lovers and professionals use e-collars Many working and service dogs from hunting teams to police and military dogs are trained and worked using e-collars precisely because they are an effective and fair way to train a dog without causing him any undue pain or harm.
