comment on radio-controlled shock collars!
devices are overused and are nothing but a quick-fix solution. While
give a "correction" (a zap) to deter the dog from doing something and
the dog learns not to do that behavior, it is purely negative
the positive reinforcement
when the dog is behaving? It is far more humane, effective and usually
faster, to actually train your dog using a one-on-one human-dog
with lots of positive reinforcement for the correct behavior and
but a disapproving tone of voice to correct a bad behavior.
someone puts an anti-barking
collar on a dog and then goes off to work, when does the dog get
for being quiet? How are they to effectively learn not to bark when
is no one there asking them to be quiet and then praising them when
also take away from a dog's confidence. After every negative
it should be immediately followed with a positive reinforcement on what
the right behavior is. Yet all they get is negative, negative, and more
negative with these collars.
