What is Shock Collars for Dogs
Radio-electronic collar is already fairly well-known among dog trainers and breeders advanced as a modern effective means of training dogs. However, issues related to the use of radio-collared, still arise. And the first of them – whether dangerous for the dog and its use as humanely? Indeed, electricity and a living creature – is it really compatible? As soon as the first did not call some skeptics’ electronics for training – shocker, stun, stun collar. Impressive epithets, is not it? But nothing to do with the electronic shock collar training does not. Current models of electronic collars are safe for both physical and mental health for dogs. Modern teaching electronics developed in close collaboration with leading animal psychology. The electrical effect that is used in the electronic media training, has a very low level, it can be likened to a mosquito bite. The purpose of this impact – do not hurt the dog, but just to get her attention. This is not a punishment for the dog, just so we explained to her that now she is doing something wrong. This is the principle of action.
The famous Austrian scientist-ethologist Konrad Lorentz in his book Man is a friend, he wrote about how he trained his dog obedience skills nontrivial ways. Here is a quote from his book: “teach the dog to obedience by means of punishment and can not be as pointless to beat her if, tempted by the smell of game, it is during the walk he will flee from you. Beatings not wean her escape – this incident is far from receded in its memory – rather back as in its submission, they are connected with the return. The only way to wean her from this manner – to shoot her with a slingshot when it is conceived to escape. The shot must be made unexpectedly for her, and it would be better if she did not notice that the pebble had fallen at her from nowhere, a hand was sent to the owner. The complete helplessness before the pain the dog will remember it well, and in addition, this method does not inspire fear in her hands.
