Electric shock collars

“Don’t command him to stop; don’t say anything.  Dial up the juice as high as you think, based on your experience, your dog can handle it. Then hit him hard and keep your finger on the button until he quits chasing.”

This advice comes from a recent article in a gun dog magazine on how to train your dog using an electric shock collar. Yet the vast majority of dog trainers agree that using pain to train is antiquated, dangerous and less effective than reward based training. We’ve long campaigned for a ban on the sale and use of shock collars. These devices are instruments of cruelty in the wrong hands. It’s time to ban shock collars for good.
