Making Use of a Training Dog Collar

A lot of dog owners shy away from the though of using a training dog collar on their dog. They think that these collars are mean and cruel and that dog owners that love their dogs will not make use of these tools. This article will give you some more information on training dog collars so that you can decide for yourself.

There are a few problems with this type of reasoning however. To start with, training collars are designed in a way that they will not cause your dog any harm. Although it should cause an unpleasant sensation for your dog, your dog will not get physically hurt. Further, if you love your dog, you will probably want them to have a few unlikable shocks so that they will be put off from crossing the road rather than have being hit by a car in doing so.

You should however be vigilant when making use of the remote dog training collars, and also be consistent with them. If your dog engages in an unwanted act, such as jumping up on people, you can give them the stimulation from the collar the next they do it. If your dog tries this again, they should get more stimulation. Quite soon your dog will understand that when they lift their front paws to jump up on someone, they will experience an unlikable sensation. Do not punish your dog with the stimulation from the dog training collar unless they in fact do the unwanted behavior.

If you are inconsistent with the discouraging of this type of behavior, then your dog will probably get confused. This might result in your dog not associating this unlikable sensation with the unwanted behavior at all. If your dog gets stimulated every time they engage in the unwanted behavior, they will learn a lot quicker and comprehend much faster.

An additional benefit of the training dog collar is that the punishment or unpleasant sensation is not associated with its owner or trainer. The handler of the dog might be standing across the yard when they feel the stimulation. The stimulation that your dog then experiences is from the behavior rather than with the handler or owner of the dog.

Usually someone will yell at their dog the one moment to stop doing something, and then call them back to them. The dog then ignores them and sneaks away. Often this result in them giving chase after the dog, and the dog will enjoy this by running around in circles to stay out of their reach.

Training dog collars can be a wonderful aid in training your dog, regardless of the fact whether they are obstinate and stubborn or a sensitive dog. You can dampen negative actions in your dog by causing them to link the behavior with an unlikable stimulus.
