    Understanding Electric Dog Training Collars


    The invention and proliferation of electronic dog training collars resulted in a much easier, less time consuming dog training. Those pet owners who find it tough to impart behavioral training by other means can now enjoy the comforts of getting their dogs trained with ease in short timeframes, using electronic dog training collars.


    Depending on the type of correction that they offer, electric dog training collars can be separated in three different categories. The three types are electronic, sonic, and spray.

    Electric Collars

    These collars work by delivering a mild static charge to the dog whenever it barks, confusing it momentarily and training it not to bark. Some models work by having the owner activate the collar with a remote control with the press of a button.

    The main advantage of the electronic collar is that it teaches a dog that barking is not allowed in certain situations, such as late at night or when visitors arrive. The set up and training procedures are simple and the collar is user friendly. The disadvantage that is attributed by some to this collar is the effects of static used on the dog.

    Sonic Collars

    Other type of electronic collars use sound instead. This kind of collar functions by offering a sound that distracts the pet when he gets involved in unwanted behavior. These collars are usually preferred by those who think that the ones that deliver static shocks are unethical and cruel.

    Citronella Spray Collars

    The third type of electronic dog training collar is the spray collar. They are equipped with a canister which sprays the citronella when it detects the vibrations caused by barking. This collar is by far the most accepted one by people who think the other two are somewhat cruel, yet it requires some extra work, such as constantly refilling the canisters and taking them off at night and at times when the dog is playing and should be allowed to bark at ease.

    There are three types of electronic dog training collars. Shock delivering collars, sonic collars, and spray collars. All of these electric dog training collars deliver good results, so it's a matter of preference.
