The first electronic dog training collars were introduced over 30 years ago and were commonly known as “Shock Collars”. They were often unreliable and could be difficult to use in an effective and humane manner. Our modern technology has refined dog training collars which are now small and lightweight, and offer a range of correction levels and safety features to enable you to train your dog efficiently while preserving his safety and well-being. The appropriate use of an electronic dog training collar can be used to address many problem behaviours.
Bark Collars: work automatically to curb excessive and/or nuisance barking
Remote Training Collars: obedience skills, deterring problem or dangerous behaviours
In-Ground Fence: dog fencing to keep a dog in a yard with no effective boundary
Whichever dog training collar you are considering, it is recommended that your dog should be over 6 months old, and should have the capacity to understand and carry out simple obedience commands.
No it does not. The original dog training collars were also known as ‘shock collars’. Modern day collars have advanced technology which incorporate safety features to ensure the safety of your dog. The correction is scientifically controlled using a level of power designed to get attention or interrupt a behaviour, and not to harm your dog. This stimulation travels between two contact points through the skin and contracts or pulses the muscle causing a tingling sensation that is temporary. The pulse intensity can be adjusted from mild to strong to suit all dog personalties. The low voltage of the batteries used prevents the collar from being able to burn or cause tissue damage, so the term ‘shock collar’ is inappropriate. To prevent skin irritations that may resemble a skin burn, your instruction manual gives precise guidelines for the fitting and use of the collar. We recommend that the training collar be used for no more than 8-12 hours to rest the skin when the animal is not training.
The duration of the training depends on the breed and age of your dog, consistency of the training programme and continuity of training demands. A lot of faults can be corrected within a few training sessions. Make sure you work on one fault at a time so there is no confusion as to why the dog is being corrected. You may also occasionally need a brief ‘refresher’ for a skill that has been forgotten if not not used daily. Many working dog owners have noticed that after using a remote training collar their dog becomes attentive and responsive to commands, and more interactive with them, making for a good dog/handler relationship.
Your Remote Trainer will have a product manual included in the package. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to review the entire Operating and Training Guide provided with your product, and any specific cautions. The following tips are a general overview of how to use a training collar and are not intended to replace the operating and training instructions as specified in the official product manual for your product.
A Remote Dog Training Collar is not an instant solution; it is used in combination with your regular training programme to be done with your dog once he is old enough to understand basic commands. A Remote Dog Training Collar can speed up the learning process, particularly with off leash training because it allows you to communicate instantly with your dog from a distance, while providing a stimulation that means something to your dog.
