I know some people that need a shock collar...

My dogs mind me because I outrank them in the pack. They run all over my son because he does not. The problem I have with my dogs is the barking. They are so high strung that I can walk around the corner of my own house and the dogs go ballistic until they see it is me. Gets old, especially in the middle of the night when they just bark and bark. That's really the only issue I have with my dogs.

Big bull, if you decide to try a collar you will be suprised at how it speeds up the whole training procees. I normally start 15 - 20 pups a year and I would hate to guess how much time a good collar saves. For people who are not familiar with them I suppose the term "shock" throws them off. The intensity is adjustable to the dogs temperment and the lower setting will normally work once the dog realizes he's even getting the shock. Most all the new ones have a tone button now and they learn that right away.
The other advise your getting about lack of respect is right on as well. Don't let the dog off the check cord if your not certain you can call him back. Each time he gets away with it.......
I've rep'd Tri-Tronics for several years now and they have a great product. Let me know if I can help you with that in any way.

Isn't it a scream (in more ways than one)! And, like you, I know more than a few I'd like to test it on...

You know, shock collars have become very popular with hunters using them on their upland bird dogs. I hunt upland a lot have 2 good bird dogs and would not consider using a shock collar on my dogs.

Its the cost of production and the value of your marketable product, or if you having fun. That's it, everything else is BS.

My husband has trained many a coondogs with shock collars and has never had any problems. most of the time it dont take long (just a few times) for them to figure it out

Some shock collars come with another button that emmits a tone. You press the button to let the dog hear the tone, then if she still doesn't mind, shock. Then the tone alone will let her know something isn't right.
