Training your dog takes time and dedication, but a collar might make life easier if you’re having trouble teaching new behaviors to your four-legged friend. These electronic devices can deliver quick shocks or send sound or vibration stimuli that capture their attention quickly. Some even come equipped with remote controls for setting different stimulation levels for even greater training options.
Though electronic collars remain controversial, a growing number of people feel confident using them to train their dogs. E-collars can help train dogs who show excessive barking, pulling on the leash or jumping up onto counters; some waterproof designs even track health, activity and location via GPS!
When considering electronic collars for your dog, it is essential that you read the descriptions thoroughly to ensure that each device provides safe and humane stimulation levels. While many dogs require higher stimulation levels than what the lowest stimulation level offers in order to respond, too much stimulation could actually prove counterproductive or even cruel.
Modern e-collars offer many alternatives to the shock feature, including audible signals such as beeping or vibration; some work by emitting bursts of citronella or air which attract your dog’s attention; some come equipped with nightlights and extra features like water resistant designs as well as remotes that work with both paws.
