If you own a puppy from the breed that grow taller wider and stronger, as they age, then it is a known fact that you will have to train it well, so as to make fullest of the strength that it can develop in later stages. Most of the pet owners prefer hiring dog trainers to get their pet all set to be called as a well trained dog.
If you prefer training your golden retriever, then you can do so by taking help from the electronic collar. Such electronic collar is the other type of shock collar, and has become the best means that the owners can use to train their pet.
Shock collar is used in three different ways, a good way, bad way, and ugly way. The actual role of any collar will be decided by the trainers or the owners of golden retriever. When introduced, the main goal of this collar was to help the trainers to tame the dogs that were hard to handle. However, with growing demand, the use of such collars became more and more frequent.
Nowadays the electric collar is employed for many purposes,
Making the Dogs to Stay within your Property
When the dogs reach fence-lines, they will be automatically corrected and all thanks to this collar. The neckline will have a signaling unit that automatically goes off, when your dog goes out of the boundary as set in it.
Stop Continuous Barking
Sometimes dogs bark continuously, when they see rodents and other such animals running inside or outside the perimeter. This is more, especially during night times. In order to reduce the chances of your golden retriever barking and waking you up from sleep, electric collar can be configured to stop the barking. The higher the decibel in the sound of barking, the higher the shock frequency gets.
Shock Collars vs. Electronic Collars
Since using shock collars on dogs are considered as animal cruelty, the manufacturers have come up with an invention, also known as electronic collars. These electronic collars are designed in such a way that they do not harm the dog by producing shock waves. It is designed with three modes.
When dog starts barking or becomes uncontrollable, the electronic collar automatically goes off by producing vibrations (just the way smartphones vibrate to make you notice them). It is like a marker that can be used as a way of interrupting the activities of dog.
Just the way the clickers are used, beep mode in the electronic collar is also used to train the dogs. The device is designed in such a way that it automatically makes your dog to freeze and surrender. Since the beep will be followed by a painful pinch from the collar, dogs automatically understand to be a good pet, if the collar starts beeping.
Sometimes the frequency of beep will be set in accordance to a whistle, which is used while calling or gaining the attention of the dog. However, it is rarely used since constant whistling might make the dog become used to the sound and might start ignoring it.
