    Dog training devices

    I've heard of these dog training devices. It seems that these devices are commonly in the form of a collar and a remote control. If you push the control and let your dog wear the collar your dog will feel a jolt of electricity in his neck.

    I'm very against these kinds of tools. How does this differ from abusing our dogs?

    What do you guys think?

    This is ABUSE and SHOULD NOT BE USED whatsoever. Period.

    I don't believe in this kind of training tool. It does border on cruelty.

    I have to admit I used a shock collar on one Rottweiler once, but this was before I knew any better and did it on the advice of my trainer. I was training my dog for service protection and he was stubborn. Since then I haven't used it on the other 2 Rottweilers I owned. I do agree it was a mistake, and I would never use it again. I feel "voice" is very affective. Dogs get attached to their owner, and truly want to please, I don't believe that dogs should be hit or shock collars used
