Dog Training, ‘Quick Fixes’, ‘Electric Shock’ Collars

Wanting a quick fix? At this time of year, leading up to Christmas break, I am hearing a lot of talk around so called ‘Quick fixes’.
Electric Shock Collars in particular are being mentioned.
One problem with these -
I have found over the years in this Consultancy that it can be a very easy and speedy process for a dog to develop and learn a negative association with the creature (human or other) or object, present repeatedly (but perhaps no repetition required!) when the gadget (of particular effect Shock Collars) is used.
Then, a negative reaction is almost ‘flagged’ for that inadvertent person or object and extensive training to build a more ‘normal’, neutral response again may have to be undertaken.
Again,
D.B.F. would rather get to the bottom of your problem situation, for long term change, Selina McIntyre, Dog Behavioural Consultant, Dogs Best Friend.
