There is a big difference between the dog with good behaviors and the overly disobedient one. That’s why today’s Dog training collars are so popular and we have to agree that it works. But among thousands of different brands and types how to choose the right one?
First thing first, you have to be aware that only the qualified brand and product can guarantee your pet’s safety. Even those top-rated ones are a little bit expensive than others. These devices, also known as electronic collars, are developed to help you control your dog from a distance. They consist of two parts, a receiver placed on a strap that goes around your pup’s neck and a transmitter that acts as a remote control. It works in a very simple way, the receiver will make a burst of static shock when you press the button on the remote. This unpleasant shock helps you to current the un-wanted behavior to teach your dog to obey. Very simple. But you have to remember that it might hurt your puppy. Also, many animal-rights militants claim that using such a device is inhumane behavior from the dog owner’s side. That’s why modern e-collars incorporate new features, such as beep and vibration modes. These allow you to choose from various types of stimulation. Both the audible signals and the vibrations are unpleasant to the dog too, and according to many owners, they usually work so well that you won’t have to shock the pooch at all. That’s saying that shock is totally one optional even it is called “Shock” collar. We recommend you choose the 3 modes type because some so-called “No Shock” collar will cost you the same but without this option at all.
Secondly, some of the devices are using the same button to switch between modes could result in accidentally shocking your pup. We strongly suggest steering clear from these models. Check how many buttons it has and ensure that your pup is 100% safe. Even more, some device like Patpet’s dog training collar has one brilliant feature called ” Super safe protection mode” which means the dog training collar will deactivate when the vibration or static shock continuously work over 10 seconds. This will avoid the command from being controlled by mistake.
Thirdly, adjustable vibration, and static levels are other important features. The latter is particularly important because a too high shock can harm the pet. Other essential features to consider are water resistance and range. Normally more than 1000 ft will be a good one and the IP X7 is also mandatory feature when you choose your training collar because your dog might get wet and the water will damage the device.
Other features will be a plus, such as battery life. Some of the devices provide a low-quality battery and you will have to charge the battery very frequently or you have to buy a new one after a short time. In our store, the Patpet is using the AAA battery which passed the UL certification and it can last for 68 days.
Choose the right one, not the cheap one.
