In his 2005 textbook on training and behavior, Steven Lindsay writes "Instead of instilling social aversion and anxiety ... animal and human research supports the notion that competent shock [collar] training appears to promote positive social attachment, safety, and reward effects that may be provided and amplified via affectionate petting and reassuring praise. The preponderance of scientific evidence suggests that [electrical stimulation] escape/avoidance and pain reduction should promote long-term effects that are incompatible with fear and stress, making the trainer an object of significant extrinsic reward that actually enhances the dog's welfare via an improved capacity for social coping, learning, and adaptation". Steven Lindsay states "If minimizing the intensity, duration, and frequency of aversive stimulation during training is recognized as a significant factor in the definition of humane dog training, then the radio controlled e-collar must be ranked as one of the most humane dog-training tools currently available"

Look at the numbers Yvette posted and please tell me how you can claim there isn’t pain when much lower levels of milliamps did cause pain. None of us knows how painful the shock collars are to the dogs. But many people have tried them out and say they do hurt. Forgetting about the pain for a moment, they are +P which is not needed at all for dog training. Dog-Collar-Prong-Pinch-Stop-Pulling-Chrome-steel-Adjustable-training-FreeP-amp-P

Make a bluetooth-activated talking dog collar for Halloween or just to show off at the park! This intermediate electronics project was inspired by Dug from the movie Up-- his talking collar translates his thoughts for communicating with humans. Using the Audio FX board and Bluefruit Micro, this project enables you to trigger sound samples through the Bluefruit LE Connect app for iOS and Android. The sounds are played through a mono amp connected to a mini metal speaker.For example, if your dog is digging holes in the yard, you will need to see him digging, then press the collar's button once. Never hold the button down for more than 3 seconds-at-a-time and never punch the button repeatedly, this will only cause harm and fear in your dog.Make a bluetooth-activated talking dog collar for Halloween or just to show off at the park!

The active ingredients spread from the site of direct contact over the skin surface. The active ingredients of Seresto™ are contained within the Bayer Polymer Matrix, making it water-resistant. Therefore it is unecessary to remove the collar before the pet is immersed in water. Seresto™ remains effective following a shampoo treatment, swimming, or after exposure to rain or sunlight. Under normal conditions, effectiveness lasts for eight months. In order to maintain an 8-month duration, dogs must not be bathed more than once per month. For dogs that swim once a month or more, the control duration is reduced to five months.I recommend that people try the collar on their neck, passing the remote to someone else who will teach them a behaviour/stop a behaviour with zero verbal communication on what that behaviour is, or what level starts to feel “painful.” For example, I could teach my husband to take his feet off the couch. I decide what level to set the shock at based on any physical reaction he might have. I can only speak to him in a foreign language that he does not understand. That would better approximate the reality of what a human would have to do with a dog. You have to figure out the level. You do not hold the remote. You have to figure out the behaviour.
