Tips To Choosing a Dog Shock Training Collar

1. Not All Collars Are Equal

The old saying, “You get what you pay for”, completely applies when deciding on a dog shock training collar. This doesn’t mean that you have to buy the most expensive remote trainer on the market, $180 is a bit much unless your training for hunting, but you should avoid the buying cheapest.

Low cost dog shock trainers typically have the following problems:

  • Low cost parts that can fail unexpectedly causing harm to your dog (ex. continuous shocking)
  • Low quality rechargeable batteries that do not hold charges
  • Durability problems as cheaper materials are used to construct the entire body of the remote and collar
  • Inaccurate shock delivery based on level (ex. at level 20 delivers shock that should be at level 80)

2. Must have 3 Training Modes

A good remote training system will have the 3 most important modes:

Tone – Used to give warning signal to dog before other training mode is delivered
Vibration – The most used stimulation method. Most dogs can be trained with vibration.
Shock – Used as the last resort when vibration is not effective in training

3. Avoid Bark Collars

As Professional Dog Trainers we do not endorse the use of bark collars. Bark collars have serious limitations that make them unsuitable for bark training, specifically:

  • Have tendency to over correct and continue to deliver shock even after barking has stopped
  • Are easily triggered by false alarms ex. Barking sounds from tv or radio, loud noises, car alarms
  • Are triggered by a dog’s cough & sneeze and will cause confusion with correction
