Hi I have a 5 year old Siberian husky named Bowie. Bowie is a rescue dog that is neutered and seems calm,until he goes into prey mode. We are currently working with a dog trainer for behavioral problems i.e his high prey drive. We have tried rewarding him with treats but that didn’t seem to work for long. We also tried the prong collar to help with the training but he ended up breaking the collar and attacked a small dog. Bowies prey can be anything from dogs to kids. He so far ignores every command even when presented with treats for good behavior. Our trainer now wants to try the remote shock collar in order to snap him out of prey mode. Should this be out next option or is there a better one? Please note that he has broken out of the prong collar twice and has attacked two dogs and a child.

Reinforce good behaviors and quash bad ones with the latest technology designed just for your four-legged friends. Dog remote training tools let you take your canine's training to the next level and are recommended for experienced dog owners, professionals, and behaviorists. By giving dogs signals through electronic dog training collars via remote control, pet parents literally widen the range of their control and effectively gain increased flexibility with their pet. Remote training collars typically include the dog collar (outfitted with a multi-level vibrating or ultrasonic stimulator) as well as the remote control for the pet parent. Adjustable, remote-controlled dog-training collar makes it easier to train dogs and discourage bad behavior such as barking

There are many ways to use the electronic collar in a training program, and the one we'll present in these articles is hardly the "only one," of course. It's also not static. Like all dog trainers, we're constantly adding and improving things. However, one thing doesn't change. Our program has always been based on the use of very low level stimulation. A low-level program gives the dog gentle comparisons, and teaches it that it is in control of the collar. We've found over the years that this approach makes it possible to take advantage of the powerful benefits of remote training collars (consistency, perfect timing and impersonality), while not sacrificing the dog's good attitude or enthusiasm for training. Picking the right training collar for you and your dog can be a very daunting task. At Gun Dog Supply, you can choose from around 100 different kinds of remote dog training collars from 7 different manufacturers: Sport DOG, Tritronics, Innotek, DT Systems, Dogtra, E-Collar Technologies, and PetSafe.There can be a lot of misunderstanding about the use of electronic collars, based on their history and images from the old "shock collar" days, and the way collars were used by some trainers in the field dog sports. But comparing a remote trainer to a shock collar is like comparing apples and oranges. A remote trainer and a shock collar are both "electronic collars," but they are quite different in the way they function and in their intended use. Therefore, this first article will be a quick overview of the history of electronic collars. Our goal is to help clear up misunderstanding about the functional design of the equipment and its application in today's progressive training techniques. A shock collar is a training tool which applies a negative stimulus to the dog. It can be used in the correct fashion to train a dog. It can be used improperly to cause a dog extreme pain. A leash can also be used properly as a training tool and improperly to cause extreme pain. The important word is "improperly". Used properly, a shock collar is no different than a leash as a training tool.
