Shock Collars For Dogs Are Barbaric
Ehhhhhhhhhh, except they work. They really do. And they’re NOT for everyone, nor for every dog. I’d hate to see some kid get a shock collar on their dog and just use it for every little thing the dog does. Frankly, you’re doing something wrong if the dog has to be shocked more than twice. They have a setting on the collar that emits a noise which functions as a warning “Watch out, shock’s next” and almost every dog responds to that noise once they’ve been popped by static once, maybe twice.
This document details the reasons I would recommend a shock collar and you will see that I think it’s a narrow segment of the dog-owning population that needs one, and the reasons for using one are severe. Like preventing behaviors that eventually get dogs put down in later life.
