Your Guide To Petsafe Dog Training Collars

Electronic dog training collars can be very useful in certain circumstances.

Many 'dog problem behaviors' are actually pretty normal canine traits and can be handled without the use of dog training collars.

But when they're taken to excess, and if they don't respond to other training methods or corrections, they can cause a lot of friction and stress - for both of you.

That's when a dog training collar can step in and save the day!

If pooch is continually serenading the neighbors, emptying your trash cans, jumping all over everyone, or digging to China in your back yard these can all be controlled quickly with one of these products.

Using Electronic Dog Collars For Obedience Training

First of all I'd better mention that Petsafe dog training collars are NOT magic wands. Your dog won't suddenly and miraculously obey your every command just because he's got a new 'accessory'.

In fact, it's important that you have already taught him the meaning of the commands that you want him to obey.

There's absolutely no point in putting a dog training collar on your pup and telling him to 'sit' if he's never heard the word before....

No matter how many times you correct him with the collar he still won't understand what it is he's supposed to do!

However, once you've introduced the commands, and your dog understands what's expected of him, Petsafe dog training collars will help reinforce what he's already learned, and speed up the process.

But as I said, they don't have any special magical powers, if you find it impossible to train your dog without a dog training collar, you won't be very likely to be successful even with the most expensive, or deluxe model.

When starting out with electronic dog collar training, always use the lowest level of stimulation (shock/electrical impulse or tone) that your dog is AWARE OF.

If it's too low, it will be totally ineffective. If it's too high, it will cause your dog to panic and actually cause more problems than it solves. Start with the lowest level possible and work your way up until you can see that your dog is aware of the 'buzz' but not scared or in pain.

Even once used to the electronic dog collar, if you're training in an unfamiliar location you may need to raise the level of stimulus a bit due to the additional distractions/noise level etc.

It's also important to remember that positive reinforcement plays a huge role in training a pup or dog. So, in addition to using petsafe dog training collars as a 'correction' for unwanted behavior, remember to use lots of praise, treats etc. to reward and encourage the desired behavior.
