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

Shock Collars

Are you at a loss as to whether or not to purchase a shock collar for your pet? Yes, you love the little guy but the neighbors don't want him in their yard. Or, maybe they are complaining about the dog's barking? You need to do something and you are thinking about getting a shock collar? Here's some information to think about regarding shock collars.

When you are looking into shock collars you should think about what your goal is. Is the ultimate goal to keep the dog from barking? Perhaps you wish to limit the aggressiveness your dog shows? Even more so, you may need to ensure the animal stays on your property. There are different types of shock collars to accomplish these tasks.

While it may seem cruel to shock an animal into submission, the actual shock the dog receives is small. It will not leave a lasting mark or pain. There are always stories of shock collars malfunctioning and by doing so the animal gets hurt. But, the risk is much smaller than allowing that same animal to run into a busy street. So, the pet owner will have to decide if they want to use a shock collar or not.

Shock collars work by shocking the animal when it behaves badly. Say for example, that an animal is to remain in a certain area. No amount of telling the animal to stay keeps him there and the owner does not want to keep an eye on the animal the whole time they are outside. So, the result is purchasing and using a shock collar. The animal steps over the buried boundaries and it causes a small shock to emit from the collar. This tells the animal, NO! So, the dog backs away and ends up staying in its assigned area.

As you can see, there are many benefits to using a shock collar on your pet. While it may seem harmful, it really is minimal compared to its benefits. While many people may never decide this is for them, it may eventually become something that you find useful and gives you great success. Shock collars are one method of training an animal. If you should choose this method for your pet, take the time to realize the pros and cons. It is a rather large expense and should not be taken lightly.
