Electric Shock Collars for dogs

Recommended Posts

Personalize

The dog whisperer, currently showing on Dstv, recently spoke and explained in much detail how these collars work. and the reason why its one of the most inhuman thing to do. I bet if most pet owners who bought collars saw that then they might think twice about actually using it. Many years ago and I am talking about in the 1940's there was these shoemakers claiming that by xraying feet a perfect shoe can be made. However the radiation exposed to this persons foot was so extream and not medicaly regulated that years after they had massive health problems. Yet at that time the rich and famous swore by having custom made shoes made from these so called shoemakers, and one by one like sheep they all followed. These shock collars are non but the same thing. Years or so from now we will find dogs with bladder problems, deafness, blindness due to this. But we never learn that fooling with nature can be very destructive

One day, people who need a dog for protection or want to own a dog because they saw 'cool one' somewhere, will be able to get a proper genetically created mutts, fitting their exact needs, won't cost much cause they will be able to feed it genetically designed "hamburger" Artificial hamburger meat successfully grown in vat of bovine fetal cells; You want some fries with that? . Until then, people who do not understand the responsibility of having OR the time and empathy required in owning and training a dog, should know not to get one.

Morning,

 

We had a case of a client who burned her dog's neck with these shock collars and she only found out when he was due for a bath, the collars which gives off sound can alter a dogs behaviour for the worst if the wrong procedure is followed, which is normally the case, please remove, only Behaviourists such as myself may use these, in the hands of unformed individual it could mean death for an animal!

I had a look at some of these listings.... none seem to be shock collars. There are spray collars (not sure what the spray is though), ultrasonic and vibration collars. My understanding is that bob doesnt allow shock collars to be sold. Not sure about the rest of these though?

According to the NSPCA in lieu of animal cruelty these items are not allowed to be sold to the general public without consulting a Professional first!

Too right ! Our dogs all bark, never for nothing, they have specific barks, known animals, unfamiliar animals, known people etc. You need to learn their language aswell as to fix the endless barking by identifying why & change the situation. We had a hyper Jack Russell once and it took a few harmless squirts with a water pistol to stop the japping, but I had to get up in the night & "catch" her. Once basic training done, she spent her 15 years protecting us & notifying us of snakes, intruders etc !
