Dog Training Collars

By Ken Marlborough

Dog training collars can be used to teach your dog basic obedience training, sport dog training and advanced training without the aid of a dog trainer. These collars help owners keep their pet under control. Dog training collars can be used to teach basic obedience commands such as ‘sit,’ ‘stay’ and ‘heel.’ The collar has to be the correct size, so measure your dog's neck with a string or tape and add two to three inches to the measurement.

Electronic dog-training collars (also called shock collars) were introduced to the market about thirty years ago. Today, they serve as one of the most effective ways to train a dog. Some of the other dog training tools are remote training collars and e-collars. These collars are remote-controlled and emit a light, corrective static shock as soon as the dog does something wrong. The corrective signal sent by the collar draws the dog’s attention, and it links the behavior with the response of the dog teaching them what is good and bad -- consequently stopping the bad. Most of the collars have several levels of correction.

There are lightweight and reliable water resistant collars for all kinds of dog activities. The different kinds of collars available include plain buckle collar, martingale collar, limited choke collar, choke chain, snap-around choke, head collar, pronged collar and no-bark collar. The choke collar is the safest if used properly. The most popular is the slip collars. These training collars work properly when fitted and used properly. Even though some disapproval exists among people regarding the use of dog training collars, professional dog trainers and veterinarians accept this as a safe training tool.
