Electric Dog Training Collars

The world of electric dog training collars is becoming a very large one and unfortunately also a very popular one. As life becomes more hectic, as people become increasingly busy, and as each of us find we have less and less time to handle the responsibilities of work, home and play, we tend to seek out whatever short cuts exist and attempt to take full advantage of them. However, sometimes what appears to be the quick and easy way, is not necessarily the most effective one, and can even be harmful, especially when it comes to training your dog.

An electric dog training collar is designed to train your dog out of bad or undesired behaviors, even when you arenít there to do it yourself. A couple of different options are available when weíre dealing with electric dog training collars. Some work by actually emitting a high-pitched sound frequency only detectable to your canineís very highly tuned sense of hearing, whereas others provide an electrical shock to your dog. The idea in either case is to distract your dog, have him stop whatever it was he was doing and ultimately correct the behavior.

One type of electric dog training collar works by using a hand held device in which the trainer can remotely cue the collar to provide the shock or correction to the animal during everyday training. We also said earlier on that the collar could correct the animalís behavior even when you werenít there. This is possible only when a very specific behavior is being discouraged, such as barking and leaving the boundaries of the property. For the problem of a dog who is barking incessantly, the collar reacts and provides the sound, or shock based correction each time the animal barks. In the case of a dog who has difficulty staying within the boundaries of an unfenced property, an invisible fencing system is set into the ground along the property lines. When the dog wears the electric collar, he will receive a warning whenever he is within a certain distance of the boundary and upon extending past that boundary line, will receive a correction from the collar.

The very idea and description of these electric dog training collars are hopefully enough to turn any dog owner away from their possible lure. It is not necessary to hurt or scare a dog into behaving for us. Proper training techniques allow us to effectively deal with any behavioral issues that we might be struggling to overcome, as well and just as importantly, they allow us to establish trust, respect and a mutual understanding between both dog and owner during the training process.

Electric dog training collars are used as a quick fix when owners either, donít know how to correctly resolve training problems, neglect to make the time for proper training sessions, or have failed to become informed about the actualities of these particular products. The real truth behind electric dog training collars is that they can undoubtedly be more harmful to your pet than helpful and their success rate in resolving the training problem is quite low. Often dogs will learn that they may resume any bad habits once the collar is off, or may even become immune to the correction and ignore it altogether.
