health case history if you're gonna believe
that malarkey. Training dogs is EZ if you
know HOWE. We don't blame the breed
or "hard wiring" or whatever other EXXXCUSE
these incompetent dog abusing mental cases
try to use to justify hurtin and ***in dogs.

and INTIMDATE their dogs.

of chasin deer ain't no different than
breaking a dog of chasing lights / shadows /
fly snapping - or any other OCD behavior.
Just takes a couple minutes if you know HOWE.

Thinking About Using Shock Collars?

Collars In The House? Read This.

So, you're looking for ways to keep your dog out
of certain rooms in the house, and you're toying
with the idea of using those "humane" shock
Some people swear by them, but a few words of warning ...
When our 1yr old dog kept romping on the living room furniture
(brand new) and wouldn't stay out of that 1 room, I decided to
try those "humane" shock collars that some stores/folks swear
by. She's got the full run of the house, but this 1 room was
The wife and I go out frequently, and after about 1week of
"regular" use, we started noticing some really odd behavior
from our baby. When we'd come home after being gone for an
hour, the dog was usually cowering upstairs, shaking like
crazy and scared out of her wits. In fairly short order we
realized the cause of her sheer terror - it was the damn
Most of my friends think I'm totally crazy for doing this -
and all the relatives got a real good laugh out of it - but
after seeing how terrified she was I decided to do what most
folks wouldn't ....
I wanted to see exactly what this "light" shock was all about,
so you guessed it ... I took it off the dog and I put it on my
own neck. With collar in place I then marched right on in to
the heart of the living room to see what the score was. The
way I looked at it, if I'm going to be shocking the dog, it's
only fair to know exactly what I'm doing to her.
Well folks, let me tell you this ... it's anything but humane,
and a light shock ... NOT. Not only was it INCREDIBLY
unnerving, but as I was making a mad dash to get out of the
room, the shock worked it's way through other muscles in my
upper back and I actually dropped to the floor. I'm 6'2,
athletic, 195lbs, ex rugby player and soccer player. I can
take pain and discomfort quit well, but this ... this really,
But wait, it gets worse.
At this point I decided that there was no way in hell that dog
would ever wear that collar again (nor would I for that matter
<G>). I took it off and as I was walking around the house with
it, guess what happened next ... the damn thing started
beeping! Although the system was setup "perfectly" and the
radius of the radio single didn't extend too far from the
unit, the single was being carried through certain structures
in the house and was being "picked up" in small areas. In one
room at the opposite end of the house there was an area about
1x2 feet where the signal was being received. So not only was
the dog learning about the *** shock and becoming very
frightened of that one room, but she was also loosing her mind
getting shocked at random areas elsewhere in the house.
And if you think testing the shock on your hand to see what it
feels like is a fair trial, trust me, it ain't the same as
getting tagged on your neck where you can't yank it away.
If you're still dead set on trying these things and you really
don't mind hurting your dog and scaring the poor thing half to
death, do what's only fair .... attach it to your own neck and
give it a whirl. You might be surprised at just how fast you
change your mind.
