Recently, we had an enormous response to this shock collar weblog submit, which explains how shock collars are inhumane and painful. Responses diverse from assist of the article to passionate debates over shock collar use. Unfortunately, many responses have been anecdotal, missing analysis references to assist their case.

We should give attention to information if we’ll focus on this matter. I problem everybody to have a pleasant shock collar debate discussing information about shock collar analysis. It’s time to convey this matter out into the open.

Choosing References

When selecting references to assist your place for or towards canine shock collars, select analysis research accomplished by specialists (i.e. veterinary behaviorists and people with PhDs and grasp’s levels in conduct). In a world full of oodles of opinions, we should stick with science and ignore these stating, “I’m a dog owner, and my dog is fine with a shock collar.” Are canine homeowners specialists in canine physique language? It’s one thing to consider.

When somebody states particular canine, similar to working canine traces, want and may tolerate shocks collars, this assertion is fake. If so, the place are the supporting references? A canine coach’s opinion just isn’t sufficient. Personally, I’ve shared my house with Rottweilers, Bull Terriers and Bouviers, and they’re walked on physique harnesses. However, that is my private opinion, so I don’t have analysis proof to show it.

In my analysis, I discovered nothing that supported the usage of shock collars on canine. Interestingly, I discovered a analysis article proving that deal with meting out machines work higher than bark collars. Overwhelmingly, the entire analysis I discovered mentions that utilizing shock collars won’t cut back unhealthy canine conduct and that they’re dangerous to canine.

Rules for This Debate

Debates are wholesome and really informative, and that’s why I’m encouraging it. If somebody lists anecdotal responses (based mostly on private opinion), simply ignore the response or ask for information. When somebody lashes out, merely ignore the remark. Hopefully, we are able to chat by way of this controversial topic whereas offering actual information for homeowners or canine trainers researching shock collars for his or her canine.

The Goal

Provide a spot for homeowners and trainers to collect information about shock collar canine coaching. Also, construct a listing of references to make use of when wanted.
