Do you know how dog training equipment works on dogs during training? This post can give you the answer.
Every pet owner hopes their furry friend behaves well, which is why more and more people are treating their pets as a member of family and starting to train them. However, training a pet is not a short process, but rather a long-term commitment. In this case, you can choose to use a dog training collar to assist with training, making the process much more efficient.
When it comes to dog training devices, most dog owners are resistant to them. They may say that these devices have the suspicion of abusing dogs because some people will use them to abuse their dogs. However, there is a saying that has been passed down through the ages: water can float a boat, but also capsize it. Though a jump rope is a good tool for strengthening body and weighting loss, if it falls into the hands of bad people, it can turn into a murder weapon. Similarly, a dog training collar is just a tool and its value depends on how it is used to maximize its effectiveness.
The dog training collar is an electronic tool that helps pet owners correct bad behavior habits of their dogs. It sends signals (such as sound, vibration, or static electricity) driving command through the remote control transmitter, and the receiver will perform a mechanical motion after receiving these commands, reminding the dog not to do prohibited behaviors, thereby achieving the goal of correcting its bad behavior habits.
How does dog training collar work?
Sound signal command: Sound training is an effective way of training animals using the method of positive reinforcement to mark the animal's current behavior as the correct behavior. By repeatedly using this action command, the dog will gradually form a conditioned reflex, knowing which commands are to perform its behavior and which commands to stop its behavior immediately.
Vibration signal command: Unlike the sound signal, the vibration signal functions more as a reminder. The vibration transmitted to dog's central nervous system through the collar may cause discomfort and quickly prevent unwanted dog's behavior. It needs to be emphasized that this is just a kind of discomfort and has no negative effects on animal brain, skin tissue, or mechanism. In simpler terms, it works similarly to the vibration function of our mobile phones, using similar principles and electronic components. Pet owners can rest assured in using it.
Static signal command: The static signal is a somewhat controversial function in dog training, but this static pulse training philosophy has been widely promoted around the world. In fact, static dog training uses pulse current, which differs essentially from electric shock. Electric shock is short-term intense electrical stimulation that causes multiple organ dysfunction in animal body. The dog training collar uses static pulses, which is a short-term pulse waveform similar to pulses usually used in electronic technology, such as massagers, analgesia instruments for relieving labor pain in the delivery room, etc. Pulse current is harmless and painless to dogs, but may make dogs feel uncomfortable temporarily.
The dog training collar is an effective tool for correcting pet's behavior and has functions such as sound, vibration, and static electricity. Please choose the appropriate functionality according to your actual needs.
The use of the dog training device in daily dog training
In order to enable dogs to live in harmony with humans, pet owners need to conduct some socialization training for their dog, including preventing dogs excessive barking, training urination and defecation, and not biting strangers, etc. Only by training the dog well, letting it know what cannot do, can it live better in society.
When a dog barks incessantly, it is not only annoying to others but also to the owner. One reason is that the barking disrupts the owner's peace of mind, and another reason is that the owner may face complaints from neighbors. If gesturing or saying "NO" does not stop the barking, a remote training collar can be used. The remote control function enables the owner to give the dog accurate, quick and effective reminders from a distance. Press the sound or vibration command button at the first moment when the dog keeps barking as it is the best time to correct its behavior. Through continual training, the dog can be desensitized to avoid excessive barking.
Cleaning up after pets that relieve themselves anywhere is a headache for pet owners. Training dogs to relieve the bowels in designated areas, it would benefit you endlessly. Pet owners should pay attention to the dog's defecation signals. Usually, if the dog sniffs around, it means it needs to relieve itself; hence, the owner must at once take it to the designated area for defecation. If the dog disobeys, defecates anywhere, the owner should immediately stop it by using the sound warning function of a training device and uttering “NO” to correct the dog's behavior of not defecating in the specified place.
No Jumping at People Training
Sometimes, when a dog jumps at people, it is to indicate a kind of intimacy. However, to adapt to human society, it must change this habit because jumping at strangers will make them feel frightened. Therefore, when the dog pounces on the owner for the first time, the owner should stop it immediately and sternly say “NO” while pushing the dog away with hands. After repeating several times, the dog will learn not to jump. If it continues to jump at you, or attacks strangers or other animals, the owner should use the most effective electrical shock function of a training device to immediately interrupt the dog's attack behavior for everyone's safety.
No Bite Training
Indoors, many dogs tend to chew furniture or other belongings due to their nature and habits. When we notice that the dog wants to destroy or bite something, we need to apply the warning sound function of the training device promptly to remind it not to continue the action; if it persists, we use a vibration or static command of dog training collar to stop it. With long-term persistence, the dog will learn to stop chewing on receiving these commands.
Training a dog is not an overnight task. Repeating training multiple times will make it understand your intention better. Pet owners should be patient, gradually help their dog’s correct bad habits, and develop good living habits.
Precautions for Using a Dog Training Device
To train a pet dog, it is essential for pet owners to seize the best time. Although training can start when the dog is young, it is recommended not to train it when it is 1-2 months old for it is still in its infancy and has fragile bones. Besides, they are not suitable for training during the development period; otherwise, it may affect their growth in the future. Generally, the best time for training is when the dog is three to four months old.
Before training, it is important to allow the dog to adapt to all the functions of the dog training collar at home to avoid making dog panic when used outdoors. It is recommended to let the dog become familiar with the warning sound and vibration functions first, and then use the static function when necessary.
If the dog exhibits aggressive behavior, it is not advisable to use a dog training collar for training privately. Seek guidance from a professional dog trainer instead.
So how do you choose a training device? When selecting a training device, choose one that is suitable for your dog. The device should have comprehensive functions, including not only general sound and vibration but also a static function, which is particularly important. Because when the dog becomes overly excited, static shock can help to suppress and lower its level of excitement.
