Training Dog Collars

Training dog collars are a very significant part in training your dog to follow basic obedience commands such as ‘sit,’ ‘heel,’ or ‘stay.’ By using certain collars you can train your pet to follow commands, this will keep your pet safe and sound, and those around him out of harm’s way. Below are a list of collars and their functions:

Shock Collar (electronic dog-training collar)-This collar does precisely what it says, it sends a volt of electric shock to your dog when it does something wrong or doesn’t follow directions. There is a transmitter-which is used like a remote that can transmit different levels of shock to the receiver on the shock collar, which will then shock your pet. After getting 3-4 shocks, your dog will note that in doing the same deed over and over again, he will suffer the shocking pain and he will not want to do it again. This is advantageous for any awful behavior that happens in the home, your dog jumping into bed with the owners at night, or drinking from the toilet.

Choke Collar-The choke collar can be the most effective collar or a dangerous one if not used property. It is made out of chain and sometimes nylon, that functions like a slip not that tightens and loosens with the tug of the leash. Historically this collar was not made to choke but to only pinch or tickle a certain nerve. When purchasing a choke caller for your pet you must make sure that there is enough space and room between the dogs neck and collar so that the choke does not squeeze too tightly suffocating your dog.

Citronella Collar-This collar is mainly useful to ease the amount of barking that the dog makes. While on a dog there is a receptor that can detect when the dog barks, this will cause a Citronella spray to be pumped from the collar. This will have an adverse reaction on the dog, and most likely the dog will associate the stink citronella smell with barking and will not want to bark again or as often.

Training dog collars, play a very principal role in raising your dog. They will help you to accomplish the goals you have set for teaching and training your dog to be more obedient, or more responsive to your commands.
