ELECTRONIC DOG TRAINING COLLARS / SHOCK COLLAR
I will never forget my Pitbull friend Bauss. He was a very quick study and always obedient. Whatever I would tell him to do he would do quickly. Well, except one thing; when we would go for a walk, he would always want to take the lead. I could not break him of the habit. Of course rule #1 of obedience training is; never let the dog take the lead. The one who takes the lead is the one in charge, the one in control. He was so bad; I decided before I lost my temper, I would not be able to take him on any more walks.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A DOG IS NOT PROPERLY TRAINED
Watch this video of a dog fight with Cesar Millan and company. In this video, Cesar has had the dog for a week and when the owners come to pick up their dog, the dog must have forgot everything he had learned. Watch how fast chaos erupts when two pitbulls begin to fight. This is what happens when a dog is not properly trained.
Over the past few years, remote training collars have become hugely popular. This of course has resulted in hundreds of cheaply made overseas collars hitting the market. I recently saw a cheaply made unit selling for around fifty dollars that had a 4.9 rating on Amazon with 70 reviews. This caught my attention. Upon close examination, I noted the unit had only been available for less than 2 weeks and that all the reviews were FAKE. Although the reviews on the surface looked legit, they were simply copied and pasted from real reviews. Don't be fooled, by a cheap price. This is a product that can't afford to be defective and cause injury to your beloved dog.
PROPERLY TRAIN WITH AID OF A SHOCK COLLAR
Now on the other hand, watch this video of a pitbull being challenged by another pitbull. Watch the Blue Pitbull completely ignoring the belligerent dog right next to him.
The blue dog in the video acts exactly like any number of dogs that I have trained with the aid of a training collar / shock collar. The training is easy and it is quick and extremely effective. I would like to see a novice train a Pitbull with aggression issues to respond like the blue dog in the video above without the use of a training collar / shock collar.
Look for an established brand used by professional dog trainers. Such brands will include collars capable of shocking a dog up to a mile a way, which comes in handy in certain hunting scenarios. You don't need that. Therefore one of their lower price models may be sufficient for your needs.
WILL A TRAINING COLLAR / SHOCK COLLAR INJURE A DOG?
I have heard bleeding hearts say that the training collar / shock collar causes injury to dogs. Again, these are people that have never tried it. They may point to some so called expert that says it causes lasting damage. Remember, in any field or with any subject, there are "experts" that would testify that the moon is made of green cheese. Here is a fact: electrical stimulation is used in many applications in every hospital around the country and has been the standard way of care for many ailments for nearly a hundred years.
When someone goes into cardiac arrest, a shock, brings their heart back to life. That shock is many times the power of even the highest setting on the most powerful training collar / shock collar. The only instance of training that requires full power stimulation from a shock collar is when training a dog with aggression issues. All other training never requires more than half power.
How much damage could a full power jolt from a professional grade shock collar cause? Way, way less then when a dog has not been trained, and he gets into a fight and gets half his face ripped off. I have had many vet bills, and in some instances over a thousand dollars because of dogs getting into fights. But I have never had a single injury to a dog because of training them with a shock collar.
