The remote control unit is waterproof, shockproof and it even floats if you drop it in water. The Educator E-Collar Dog Trainer also comes with a two year warranty which is a lot more than most dog shock collars have.

Randall Lockwood PhD, Senior Vice President, Anti-cruelty Initiatives and Legislative Services, The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was quoted in a 2007 White Paper titled "The Facts About Modern Electronic Training Devices," produced by Radio Systems, a manufacturer of shock collars, "We recognize that older products were often unreliable and difficult to use humanely. But we feel that new technology employed by responsible manufacturers has led to products that can be and are being used safely and effectively to preserve the safety and well-being of many dogs and strengthen the bond with their human companions. " So, are electric/shock collars helpful, harmful, or useless for dog training?

Although the term "shock collar" has fallen out of public favor in recent years, behavior modification systems for pet and working dogs are often still used as part of a larger training regimen. These collars deliver short bursts of electrostatic energy to discourage bad behavior — not to injure the animal. Many of these training devices use other means to deliver negative reinforcement, such as vibrations or sonic cues. There are three main types of shock collars to address different kinds of behaviors.During our research, we observed many additional features that were unique to each of our top shock collar contenders. For example, some training systems use supplemental corrective methods in addition to electrostatic shock. Others make it possible for owners to train two dogs at the same time, which could definitely be useful for owners of multiple pets. Whenever possible, we note these additional features and explain their usefulness in more detail.Construction and design are important considerations when choosing a dog training system. Some shock collars are completely waterproof for outdoor use. Others are intended for short-range, indoor use. Some collars are designed to fit larger dog breeds; others are suited for smaller pets. In this section of our ratings, we consider product elements such as comfort, durability, and responsiveness.If you're having trouble training your dog, hire a positive reinforcement trainer before getting a shock collar. Improper use of shock collars can make things worse. A balanced trainer can guide you on how to use the collar safely with other techniques for lasting effects.In the last shock collar article, I mentioned finding a good level at which to stimulate the dog. I called it the operational level. If you have not done that, go back and read about it before you start trying to train your dog. In fact, all of these articles build on each other, so make sure you have read all of these:The remote training system uses a positive/negative reinforcement model. Audible beeps confirm good behavior and mild to medium electrostatic vibrations correct bad behavior. Both the transmitter and the collar's receiver unit are completely waterproof, and they are suitable for most dog breeds of eight pounds or more. The receiver is exceptionally light, weighing only a few ounces, but it will deliver a noticeable shock/vibration at higher settings.
