Tips on how to use shock collars for dogs

 that dog shock collars can increase aggression and reduce confidence in dogs for this reason.

Now, another of my other dogs, a border collie, lab, husky mix is quite good and I only got the two dog model because it was not much more money. I did aquaint her to the collar as well and now walk in public places such as parks, boardwalks, etc., without a leash on her. She is so well behaved that a slight vibration (no shock) and she is giving me her complete attention.
Training dogs with help of the shock collar: short and long term behavioural effects -

In other words, how does shock collars effect dogs in real world training scenarios? The researches were especially interested in finding occurrences of pain, fear, avoidance, pain-induced aggression and submission. Shock collars, electric fences, and crating are things I just will not do with my dogs.

BTW, before we get too deeply into this topic and everyone starts calling the Humane Society on me, let me explain what the stimulation is like. If you have ever dragged your shoes across a carpet and then reached for a doorknob and gotten a shock you have received the same sort of stimulation as comes from the Ecollars. It is unpleasant, but does no physical damage. I have given myself thousands of shocks from the collars in demonstrating them and insist that my clients receive stimulations from the collars as well, before using them on their dogs. 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.Behavioural effects of the use of a shock collar during guard dog training of German shepherd dogs were studied. Direct reactions of 32 dogs to 107 shocks showed reactions (lowering of body posture, high pitched yelps, barks and squeals, avoidance, redirection aggression, tongue flicking) that suggest stress or fear and pain. Most of these immediate reactions lasted only a fraction of a second. The behaviour of 16 dogs that had received shocks in the recent past (S-dogs) was compared with the behaviour of 15 control dogs that had received similar training but never had received shocks (C-dogs) in order to investigate possible effects of a longer duration. Only training sessions were used in which no shocks were delivered and the behaviour of the dogs (position of body, tail and ears, and stress-, pain- and aggression-related behaviours) was recorded in a way that enabled comparison between the groups. During free walking on the training grounds S-dogs showed a lower ear posture and more stress-related behaviours than C-dogs. During obedience training and during manwork (i.e. excercises with a would-be criminal) the same differences were found. Even a comparison between the behaviour of C-dogs with that of S-dogs during free walking and obedience exercises in a park showed similar differences. Differences between the two groups of dogs existed in spite of the fact that C-dogs also were trained in a fairly harsh way. A comparison between the behaviour during free walking with that during obedience exercises and manwork, showed that during training more stress signals were shown and ear positions were lower. The conclusions, therefore are, that being trained is stressful, that receiving shocks is a painful experience to dogs, and that the S-dogs evidently have learned that the presence of their owner (or his commands) announces reception of shocks, even outside of the normal training context. This suggests that the welfare of these shocked dogs is at stake, at least in the presence of their owner.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.
