It used to be that shock collars were the ideal way to train your dog. They would get a little shock here and there if they were barking too loud or crossed into the neighbors yard. Would you want to be shocked as a way of being scolded? Shocking a dog shouldn’t be placed in the same category as training. It is not beneficial to constantly have your dog shocked when they are doing something that you don’t permit. Instead, they need to be trained and practice the rules that you have made for them. Even though the shock is not severe, it still isn’t an effective way to train your dog. Shock collar is a name that should actually ring a bell in your head to not buy one. You are shocking your dog for misbehaving when there are actually other options on the table for you to choose from.
