Please don’t shock the dog. The use of e-collars comes with a risk that dog owners should not take. I’m sharing a case from my own personal clients files.
The owner went to a positive punishment, shock collar trainer for help. The puppy was not responding well to recalls and the owner was told to shock (punish) the dog for not coming. The owner shocked the puppy while practicing a recall in their home. The dog became fearful of the house and would not enter it, fortunately they immediately stopped using the collar and called me. We were able to recondition the dog without too much emotional damage. Don’t take the risk. Call us today at 828-507-3020 to get the best training help available.
