    Advantages Of Dog Training Collars


    Today, %LINL1% are a necessary part of training dogs to be on their best behavior and for socializing. Laws now prohibit certain types of dog behavior, such as barking at night or attacking people on public places, and it's the responsibility of the owner to make sure that his or her dog doesn't bother other people. It's not only loud and incessant barking that's frowned upon in most places, but also threatening behavior that dogs may exhibit when faced with strangers or a crowd. Thus, the increasing need for training collars of several types.

    Choker Training Collars

    Some people consider these dog training collars ethical while others prefer the old fashioned leash. They help when the dog pulls too hard on the leash and helps to correct other bad behavior too. These collars have proven useful for teaching young puppies or newly adopted dogs to behave when in the prescence of people or other dogs. Dogs eventually learn not to pull too much on their leashes while they are out on a walk to avoid the choking sensation caused when they pull on the collars. Some collars have some protuberances for increasing the feeling on dogs that are particularly stubborn or with very thick skins. These protuberances also stop the pressure as soon as the dog behaves.

    Electronic Dog Collars

    These types of training collars emit a short shock which surprises the dog when it barks. The collar fits around the neck of the dog and the device from which the small electric shock comes from is placed directly in front of the dog's throat. These collars are not cruel, since it's not an electic shock, like the ones seen in cartoons, but a static feeling, similar to the one we get when we walk on carpets. This can work well as long as the owner is constantly there to monitor his or her dog.

    In these days, training collars are more of a necessity than a luxury. The main reason of it is that laws today hold dog owners accountable for the behavior of their pets. Therefore, dog training collars keep both the dogs and their masters out of trouble.
