Opinions please

Is it fair to use shock collars on dogs or should you take the time and train the dogs yourself?

I think it's clear what my view is.

Please discuss and vote.

Thanks

BC

Shock it or shoot it. Those are your only options in this situation.

First off, I am against them and never used them and will hopefully never have to use one.

However, I have recommended shocking before in situations where it may be needed and makes sense, such as not entering an area even though the dog knows it is off limits but sneaks in there when not being watched, for example. In this case, shocking the dog associated the entrance with a shock and the dog hopefully won't try again. That would work better than beating the out of the dog every single time and just create a bad relationship between human and dog rather than dog and off-limit area.

Also, we have used eletricity fences for horses successfully and it is very safe.

Now, I would never condone using a shock collar on a regular basis or as training method or as means to abuse an animal.

shock collars can be used wrong! Most people dont even know it, they have a new collar that sprays a little pepper spray in the area of the dogs nose but still I dont like either. I took my dog to a good ole fashion class when he became a terror and it taught me and the dog a few things. He is allmost completley behaved and he was never once hurt into understanding. Im not against smacking a dog though. He on my carpet I smacked his but! But just saying there are better ways than being lazy and using a collar.

Best point is the collar and the class almost the same price, My class was 5 bucks cheaper than the collar!

I am all for using a shock collar on you martin. Sounds like fun.

As far as a dog, not allways the greatest idea. In the wrong hands the collar can fry a dogs simple little head. A better Idea would be to start the dog on a excercise/training regimine. , send the dog off to a trainer to get started in the right direction

She already has but didn;t keep up with it. Owner needs to go to training school IMHO.

you need to train the owner. . .dog psychology is simple, ours is not. Sounds like the handler/k9 have gotten offtrack at some point.

I would think the dog would be running along, cross majic barrier and start getting shocked, I dont think the dog will know why and know to return so ti will stop, so what if he trips out and hauls away down the street and gets electrotherapy for the rest of his doggy years, ending up in some wayward doggy rehab home?
