Over the years, animal welfare organisations have declared electronic collars (also known as shock collars and E-collars) to be cruel, showing some ignorance of the facts. The electronic collar transmits a corrective pulse that is only momentary, and is 3000 times less than an electric fence, and yet it is accepted to use cattle prodders/jiggers which are 300 times stronger than a dog training collar.
The key to well trained and disciplined dogs is the basic training process, establishing a situation where the dog understands and responds to commands, thereby developing confidence and trust. When the dog’s natural instincts and enthusiasm take control, disobedience and ‘temporary deafness’ can cause frustrations with the handler, which can sometimes result in a cruel outcome.
Veterinary research found that if correction is delayed:
Correction after 15 seconds is therefore useless and cruel. The electronic trainer will cure the problem of reoccurring misbehaviour by giving an instant correction the moment the dog misbehaves. By pressing the correction button on the remote transmitter, the collar produces a mild electrical sensation, less than the static pulse you may get from a car door. It communicates with the dog in a language they understand; to avoid actions which result in unpleasant circumstances.
The use of an electrical device upon an animal is regulated by relevant State or Territory regulation.
