Choosing a Dog Training Collar For Indoor Training

Reigning in an out-of-control dog can be extremely challenging, even after investing time and energy in obedience training. That’s why an electronic collar can be invaluable in providing relief both to you and your pup when used appropriately.

While traditional shock collars were harsh and unsafe for our beloved canines, modern e-collars are safe and humane when used properly. The key is limiting use to reinforcing commands your dog already understands and using low levels of static stimulation which feels more natural for dogs than an audible tone or vibration; when coupled with firm but consistent leadership your pup will learn to respect you rather than fear you.

Many electronic collars include a safety feature that suspends signal transmission when your finger is lifted off of the remote control, to help avoid accidental activation of the collar. You should test its sensitivity by administering brief shocks (1 second at lowest setting) to your dog until he or she responds – usually with a whimper – to brief shocks (usually one second on lowest setting). Teddy usually responds well with level four giving out mild tingles–enough to stop barking or lunging at other dogs while on walks!

Sizing is often key when selecting an indoor training collar for our dog; be sure it fits snugly around his or her neck without shifting around or becoming loose over time. This is particularly essential with non-e-collar collar types like choke chains or prong collars which could result in choke injuries if misused improperly.
