Shock Collar Dog Training Easily And Quickly
By Jon Marley
I am bringing some more updated graphic related to
the dog training
Dog training with a shock collar can be a really easy technique. Due to the training shock collar dogs are coerced into behaving more quickly and prevent them from being distracted too long which could hinder your dog training.
Shock collars and any form of shock collar training seems a little cruel, but it doesn't actually shock your dog. The shock is more of a stimulation like when someone gets shocked by static electricity after walking over carpet with their socks on. It causes no permanent harm for the dog and is one of the many effective techniques available.
To start out you want to set the stimulation level of the collar to the lowest amount that the dog can sense, we don't want to fry our furry little friend do we? (Just kidding, though it is kinda mean to have the jolt on its highest setting when it is not necessary) By sensing, I mean some kind of reaction from the dog where you can tell that they notice the stimulation, such as an ear twitch, or a slight jerk, scratching like a flea is biting them, or some other obvious sign.
The first kind of shock collar training we're going to talk about is behavior avoidance, this is a very common technique that people will use shock collars for. Next time your dog does something that you don't like, like getting into the trash can and making a mess of the trash, put the shock collar on the dog and wait for him to approach the trash can, once he gets near the trash can give him a stimulation holding the button down until he moves away from the trash can. Repeat this action every time the dog gets near the trash can. Now you have to be consistent with the shock collar dog training, or else the dog will learn that the collar is what is actually causing the stimulation, instead of thinking it's the trash can. This will lead to a recurrence of the negative when he's not wearing the collar. After awhile the dog will get the point and will leave the trash can alone.
The next kind of shock collar training involves teaching the technique, recall. Recall is where the dog simply learns to move towards the owner when he receives the shock. This is useful for if you're outside with your dog and he becomes distracted by a car, and also helps just to keep the dog around you. Eventually the dog will learn to stick to the owner's side like glue.
To start the recall whenever the dog is away from you give him some stimulation and then guide the dog towards you, either by calling him, or getting someone to push him towards you, etc. Once he moves within a few steps of you immediately stop the stimulation. Soon the dog will learn that the safe spot to be is by the owner's side, or within the immediate vicinity of the owner, and will stay there to prevent being shocked.
The last type of shock collar training, which isn't actually a training technique or anything, but it is the dog's constant reaction to the shock collar, as he soon learns to accept the collar, and beginsanticipating the shock. It's called avoidance training. Eventually the dog will learn to anticipate the shock and try to prevent it as much as possible. After this point the dog will usually do whatever it takes to not get shocked. This is good because then he will almost always try to anticipate the shock collar, with only infrequent reminders that it's there.
Dog training with a shock collar is a very effective method of that is completely humane and saves a lot of time. It also provides you with beneficial training techniques like behavior avoidance, recall training and avoidance training. Avoidance training and recall are some things that could be quite difficult to teach to a stubborn dog using normal methods if the dog doesn't want to listen. There are more dog shock collar training techniques in the site below that I've yet to touch on, these are just basics.
