    Shock collars...Totally against them. Me and my friend went to Petco to look for something that might help him train his dog. We came upon the shock collars and my friend thought it would be funny to try one on. So he did and I shocked him. When i pressed that button, i saw all his muscles tense up. He though he was gonna die from electrocution. If a human can't handle it, why do people think a dog can. OR does the dog's fur make the shock less harsh?

    I'm not real sure how harsh it is on a dog. I guess it would be just like an electric fence, huh?

    From what Amy's described about the collar she had to use, the better ones have adjustable levels.

    I've looked at some of them, and they have different levels, and they also have a button that gives a clicking sound, then the shock button. So, after you train them for a while, you can just use the clicking button without the shock.

    Shock collar forsale

    I have a small dog shock collar forsale if anyone is interested, it was used one month and worked like a charm, it has a remote with 10 different settings. It retails for $149 and I am selling it for $60 plus shipping. I am located in MS and can ship.

    Email me at ChinsAreMe@msn.com if interested, postal money order only!

    This is completely safe for your dog, it is made by petsafe and I had contacted the company before I purchased and they told me it was not harmful to dogs, it is like if you touch a door knob and get a static shock, and I have a hardheaded dachsund and this has cured her barking so I no longer need it.

    Thanks, Jen

    Thanks, Jen. It's good to hear from someone who has used it successfully. I'd be interested, but it would probably just fit around my Monster's ankle, and I doubt she'd even notice it. :D

    Yea its more for small dogs like dachsunds and jack russels and beagles, ya know the hardheaded breeds that bark at even a pin dropping. I tried it out on myself before I used it on my dachsund and my hubby had the control and he got evil on me and put the thing up on level 10 and I was jumping all over the kitchen :eek:) We only got to level 5 and it stopped my loud mouth, they really work!! You have to put a regular collar on after you have gone through the process to stop them from barking because then they think they still have the bark collar on LOL!!

    They do have them for large breeds also...

    My friend, Amy, gave me a recommendation for the brand she had to use on one of her male Filas. They are pricey! I hate to think of having to resort one with Kharma, but if she doesn't stop herding the cows when we call her off . . .

    I think shock colars are a great training tool if they are used properly. If you want to know where to get the best shock collar just go to http://www.dogproblems.com/e-collars.htm and there will be a list of the best ones.
