Personally, I feel any dog trainer who has to resort to electric shock treatment in order to get a response isn't worth a pinch of salt. I wouldn't let a person like this anywhere near my dogs. If you want your dog to listen to you, then I say be interesting in the first place. And,if a dog is on the leash it shouldn't be chasing cars in the first place. There are no bad dogs, just bad handlers and in a few cases, appalling trainers. Any trainer who needs to resort to kicking, hitting, shocking obviously isn't very confident or is maybe just a control freak. By the way these awful collars can cause nasty injuries to a dog's throat. In my opinion anyone who uses them is lazy and abusive.

Hear, Hear -


No excuses for shock collars.


I cancelled my subscription to a Stockdog Magazine because of the articles and advertisements on shock collars.


No need if the trainer does his work - at least in my experience with Border Collies. I'll play politician and say that I have not investigated the use in training gun dogs or others, but I KNOW it is not needed with my Border Collies.
