    Defaultshock collar

    has anyone used one?
    I don't like the idea but when Rocky sees the neighbor driving down the road he just takes off after him and will not stop regardless of how loud I yell, the other 90% of the time he listens fine.
    Just asking anyone that has experiences here, perhaps I'm wrong to not try one, must be better than getting hit with a car. :scared

    We lived on property with no fence so we had to use the electronic collar on some of our younger males. I tend to use it strictly for "here". They are expensive though so you have to look at the options on each. I find that the beep scares them more than the shock, so for mine, I want that function.

    It is supposed to be a compliment to training not a short cut. If you do use one, find someone to help you w/ the pre-conditioning. But yes, I do use them here w/ CC to "here" and obed/ field work.

    You can get rubber coated steel 25' - 50' tie outs that will help keep your pooch out of danger too.
    Ruby could chew a dump truck but has not solved this tie out.

    Btw, they are called electronic collars, not "shock collars".

    Fences are wonderful also. Can you fence your yard? At least that would not require you to be on watch every second.

    thanks. I also am most concerned with "come here". good point with the tone/beep function, have been looking at them on line before I posted.
    just asking for personal experiences like yourself.

    thanks to you also. I know they're electronic collars, was just using slang as I wasn't sure others knew the proper name.
    I have read they're to be used as a training aid, and makes sense too.

    Hello Jertom,
    I think you can try other metods to prevent this behavior. Read this article(Dogs Chasing Cars - ASPCA). There are methods which can help you to prevent this problem.

    o.k. thanks, nice article but didn't say much;
    1. fence in the yard (no-brainer)
    we live on 11 acres, $$, overkill for the problem
    2. teach him to come when called, including the use of electronic devices. note from article: he may not listen when he's so excited to go play with neighbor.
    Rocky does not randomly chase cars, he comes when called, unless/until he sees someone else he knows to go play with.
    I tried to say that in first post.
