Electronic collars (that’s the exact name, occasionally you can see name electronic collars) are training aid. Right from the beginning it is needless to say that it not serves as a punishment tool. If the owner is rough he doesn’t need something special but he will find anything to punish the dog. Beating of the dog and scaring the dog is huge mistake in the training of the dog.

How do the electronic collars help with dog training precisely?
Their principle is quite simple. Life shows that simple things are the most effective ones. Take this example. Your dog is running away in the woods when on walk and he is not responding to your calls. That is very dangerous for him. How to teach him to react when he is so far away from you that you cannot tell him it’s wrong? That is when electronic collar will help you. You are holding remote transmitter in your hand while the receiver is on you dogs neck.
Dog ran away and he is not responding to you calls. You press the button on the transmitter and send the pulse or warning. Most of the collars have different types of correction – first you will send sound, after vibration and in the end electrostatic pulse. Dog will soon remember the sequence of the warnings and you will be able to warn him just with the vibration or sound warning after some time. The advantage of electronic collar is that when the dog is running away or is chasing some animal to the dangerous place you can warn him by remote control.
That has most certainly different effect than when you chase your dog and want to punish him hour after he did something like that. Dog is not a human. And if you punish him after a longer time he is not able to connect the punishment with his wrong doing. So then , this situation can occur, your dog will run away and in about hour he will come back and you instead of praising him for return you will beat him for running away and he will immediately connect it, I returned and got beaten, so what do you think he will do next time?
To react immediately during the training of your dog is the key to successful training. And with that the electronic collars will help. It allows you to react as soon as possible.
It seems to you that you don’t need electronic collar for training of your dog? It is up to your decision. If you put the collar on your dog’s neck don’t think about it as your failure.
