Your Dog May Associate The Shock With Something Besides His Behavior
Myhre never had a dog while he was married with children but acknowledged owning a dog shock collar, which was found in the home, Nealy said.
Just like the PetTech PT0Z1, the OU-Band Dog Training Collar is designed specifically for helping canines with their obedience development sessions. The set already comes with two neck band receivers so you can instantly use it on your two pooches. While its range of 330 yards is about a quarter shorter than the full range of the Pettech PT0Z1, the OU-Band is nonetheless, an excellent companion whether we are teaching Fido obedience, on-leash, off-leash, or even advanced tricks. The OU-Band comes in light, beep, vibration, and static shock modes. While the static current mechanism can be fine-tuned to 100 different levels of intensity, this particular mode should always be reserved for emergency situations where your pooch is clearly no longer responding to your commands nor to the 3 other modes of the OU-Band. It may be true that the static electricity will not harm our pets, there’s just no evidence that proves it won’t, just as there’s no evidence that it will. Sometimes, it’s a lot better to just treat it as if it will hurt our pet. So, we do recommend using this particular mode very sparingly. Nevertheless, if you’re looking for a great no bark collar, then you might want to consider this.
Dogs whose yards are surrounded by electronic fences may develop fear or aggression aimed at what they believe is the source of the shock (kids riding by on bikes, the mail carrier, the dog next door, etc.). Dogs have been known to run through electronic barriers when frightened by fireworks or chasing a squirrel and then be too scared to cross back through the barrier.
Myth #2: "You Cannot Train A Hunting Dog Without A Shock Collar"
This is what a regular dog shock collar looks like:
High Tech Pet took this issue under advisement early on in our existence, because we were determined to create a shock collar that pet owners of very stubborn dogs could rely on with the peace of mind that it was also humane. After much research, we developed our proprietary "Pulsed Proportional Stimulus", a progressively increasing shock that becomes more intense with each bark. We spoke to numerous animal behaviorists and vets that felt this type of stimulus would, by far, be the most effective and humane of the shock type collars. Our concept worked so well, that we not only use it in our training devices, but in our underground fence units as well!Sepsis, an overwhelming infection in the body, results in severe inflammation. Untreated, it can turn to severe sepsis, which can cause multi-organ failure (e.g., acute kidney failure, acute respiratory distress syndrome, or liver failure). When severe sepsis overwhelms the body, it results in septic shock. Even with aggressive treatment, septic shock can be fatal in dogs and cats; reported mortality rates range from 20% to 68% in dogs.
Tone collars and trainers represent a good alternative to shock collars, when your dog is more apt to train quickly and easily. They emit a short sonic beep in direct response to the dogs bark. This at first may seem a bit too good to be true. Indeed when we first tested our Hush Puppy, we couldnt believe that such a quiet little beep would do a thing. (Yes, the beep is audible, not ultrasonic as most people assume.) Surprisingly, within about 3 days, our nuisance test barker showed a dramatic decrease in barking. Apparently, the mild tone stimulus becomes quite effective with its persistent application over time. The Super Hush Puppy is an even more advanced unit that uses the principle of progressively increasing the sound level as the dog persists in barking. This tends to be quicker at teaching the dog the cause and effect relationship between barking and tone correction, and results in shorter training time. The Down side to these collars: Not much! They may take a little longer to work than a shock collar but, cause zero pain and trauma to your pup.A married man beat and abused his two young children for years, even shocking them with an electric dog collar and jamming small blades under their nails, and fractured his wife's skull in an assault that sent her to a hospital, prosecutors said.
