Beginner’s Guide to Dog Training Collars

It’s not going to go away on its own. Your dog isn’t magically going to avoid his problem behavior just because you snug-fit it with a remote dog training collar. You have to give it time, time for your pet to get accustomed to the different kind of collar it’s wearing. On your part, you may have to research on how the training collar works, and when to legitimately expects results from it. And before you even put one on your dog, you’d have to have shopped properly for one (and you just can’t get any kind of training collar).

This is when online search and shopping are useful. Your own dog owner friends and even your vet are a great source of info on the matter; still, you could use some feedback from the online consumership about certain dog supply products. To do that means to read some customer reviews usually found on dog supply websites.

In an ideal world, every dog owner can block out weekends or hours after work to spend it with his or her dog; but time is not a luxury for everyone. But when you get down to the consequences, the time spent is well worth it. There are a lot of possible dog problems you can help curb, ranging from chasing cars to aggression to constant barking.

With a dog training collar, what you can do, in an instant, is to interfere or interrupt your dog’s unwanted behavior. You can do this from a distance, via a transmitter that sends signals for the collar to activate and release a static correction. Unlike a normal electronic bark collar, that activates per bark, a remote training collar can be used to address other problems apart from incessant barking. The moment you see, for example, that your dog is about to chew someone’s shoes, you can correct him.

Introducing your dog to the remote training collars follows some standard routines. Among these are getting the right size of collar for you dog’s size and breed, and making sure it can be adjusted just right. Remember to check if the collar’s device touches your dog’s neck’s skin, or at least the part directly above the throat. This is needed to that the stimulus – the static correction – is properly felt by the dog; should the device slide around your dog’s neck or be in contact with more fur than skin, the shock might not be felt as reliably. When starting your dog on the training collar, it’s customary to begin training it using only the lowest level of stimulation.

The remote transmitted in your hand means that, at any time and at long distances, you can correction your dog’s behavior with the shock from its collar; over time, the dog avoids the behavior you shock it with. Hence you need to spend some time with your dog, with the training collar in place.
