    Why The Demand In Dog Training Collars?

     

    Nowadays, training collars are a necessity for teaching dogs to behave, specially for occasions where visitors are involved. As we all know, dog behavior needs to be at its best because there are laws that prohibit loud and long barking dogs, as well as neighbors that don't appreciate them either. Dogs, of course, have no knowledge of the rules and they just follow their instincts, which is why they need to be trained. Therefore, the demand for training collars of several types has increased lately.

    Choker Training Collars

    Some people consider chokers to be the more humane dog training collars. They restrain dogs when they try to pull away from their leashes, and it can correct other types of behavior. These collars are mostly used for walking the dog, specially when they are small or young and they haven't learned yet how to behave with other people or dogs. Dogs slowly realize that jumping at people and things will give them a very annoying choking sensation. For dogs that are too stubborn, or that have with very thick skins, there are some choking collars that feature some soft protuberances that increase the feeling. These types of collars also stop any sensation to the dog as soon as this one relaxes.

    Electronic Collars

    These types of training collars emit a short shock which surprises the dog when it barks. These collars look very similar to regular collars, but they have a small gadget located next to the dog's throat. The shock is not cruel, it's just a mild static shock, similar to the one we get when we play with balloons. These collars are very practical and effective as long as the training is constant and supervised closely by the owner; just remember to take the collar off when training is over so that the dog can rest.

    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.
