Different Types of Dog Shock Collars & Guide

Compliant dog collars- Compliance or obedience collars are normally used along with a remote transmitter that is handheld and is also referred to as e-collars. The owner or the dog trainer holds the remote in his hand and presses on a button or buttons that relate to distinct intensity levels (of shocks). The trainer presses a knob that transmits a low, medium or high-level electrical impulse or signal to the collar depending upon the degree of the dog’s unruliness or disobedience.

Containment or Restraint Dog Collars- The restraint shock collars actually work as a system that entails the setting up of an electric grid that is either buried underground or kept concealed around a prescribed boundary. This hidden or underground lattice or wires are remotely and wirelessly connected to the shock collar. Whenever the dog tries to go out of the marked territory and oversteps his bounds, he receives a shock. The dog at first is warned via a discordant beep or through a raucous note when the canine starts to saunter or stride in the undesired direction. A shock is delivered only when the dog has strayed significantly away from the demarcated zone.
