What are the best dog training collars?
If you’ve ever struggled with a disobedient dog, you’ll know how frustrating the training process can be - this is where e-collars and remote training collars come in, allowing you to give a physical stimulus to your dog to trigger a behavioural change during the training process.
Using a dog training collar, your dog will come to associate engaging in unwanted behaviours with receiving a mildly irritating stimulation. They’ll learn that they get a vibration when they dig up the flower bed or the vibration stops when they stop digging. Over time and with consistent training, they will effectively learn to stop engaging in the unwanted behaviours and instead to engage in praise-worthy behaviours with plenty of positive reinforcement.
When selecting a training collar for your dog, you should consider your dog’s age, size and breed. We have many size options available to ensure you select the best fit for your dog. You may also wish to consider water resistance, range (e.g. if you’re training a farm dog over large distance paddocks) and how many dogs you’re looking to train at once.
You’ll find a large range of training collars on our website (including remote collars and collars) so you can rest assured that Aetertek has your pet training needs covered. If you have any questions, our Australian customer service team is here to help.
How do dog training collars work?
An e-collar sends a stimulation or vibration to your dog. This is a harmless static pulse that can be increased, either automatically or remotely. This pulse is used to deter any unwanted training behaviours, such as digging, entering dangerous situations, rough play or barking.
The increasing levels of the static stimulation is used to get your dog’s attention faster, through a higher frequency of pulses - but not a higher strength. The vibration gets faster rather than stronger, and this helps to get your dog’s attention. Your dog will learn to associate the annoying sensation of the vibration with the unwanted behaviour, and then learns that stopping the unwanted behaviour also stops the irritating vibration.
Dog training collars can be used to stop nuisance barking, deter digging, reinforce positive behaviours and keep your dog safely inside your property.
Is it safe for dogs to wear collars?
When used properly, electronic dog training collars and bark collars are absolutely safe and effective - designed only to provide a stimulus to the dog that assists with the training process, and never to hurt the dog.
Remote training collars can be thought of like a seatbelt alarm in a car. When you get into the car and turn on the ignition, the alarm sounds if you don’t buckle up. It’s an annoying sound, designed not to hurt you but to prompt you and train you into taking action so that the noise stops. Dog training collars are the same, prompting your dog with a slight vibration that is designed to prompt them to change their behaviour to stop the irritating sensation.
The vibration that your dog receives is enough to grab their attention, but never to hurt them. The intensity of the vibration can be adjusted so that you can rest assured that your dog’s safety and comfort is well within your hands.
Are electronic collars and shock collars the same thing?
Many people may think of ‘shock collars’ when they hear of electronic collars and dog training collars, but there are some very important differences to note.
Whilst training collars of the past (notably in the 1960s) were very high powered and didn’t provide enough modulation options to allow owners to ensure their dog’s comfort, training technology has come a long way. And importantly, the ethics and responsibility of manufacturers has also come a long way, too.
We value your dog’s safety and comfort above all. All dog products we stock are designed with your dog’s safety in mind are produced with responsible manufacturing processes to ensure that with proper use, harm is never caused to your dog.
How long should my dog wear a training collar for?
Like any other training method, dog training collars are designed for periodical use and are worn only when in a training session, rather than being left on the dog, so your dog won’t be bothered by the collar and will come to learn of it as a training stimulus.
Wearing the training collars for too long can get irritating for your dog, and may cause pressure sores, so always remove the collar from your dog at the end of a training session.
Does a training collar work?
For some dogs, only a little bit of training is all they need - but for many dogs, additional reinforcements can make a world of difference!
All dogs respond differently, but behavioural modification often works best when dogs are given a stimulus that motivates them to change their behaviour. This can be more effective than a voice command alone, especially when it comes to behavioural issues that require an immediate response to a command, such as nuisance barking or digging.
Dog training collars are also helpful for dogs that have difficulty hearing voice commands or seeing visual commands.
With consistent and proper training using the electric dog collars, your dog can learn faster and more effectively. Effective pet training should always include plenty of positive reinforcement when your dog behaves well - playtime, belly rubs and treats when your dog displays positive behaviour are essential!
How do you stop nuisance barking?
We hear from many dog owners who are exasperated at their dog’s incessant barking and are having trouble getting them to stop, no matter how hard they try! Does this sound like you?
Rest assured, an e-collar can help train your dog. In fact, it’s relatively simple to train your dog to stop barking using a dog training collar. There are a number of ways to do this, depending on how or when your dog is nuisance barking, your dog’s breed and age and your dog’s temperament.
Our friendly and knowledgeable customer service team are dog lovers, just like you (and many have trained their own dogs using a training collar!) - so don’t be afraid to reach out to us and let us help with your situation. We’d be happy to discuss your needs and help you find a path forward to get your dog’s nuisance barking under control and restore a happy, obedient and loving owner/pet relationship.
How long will it take to train my dog?
The duration of your pet training depends on a number of factors, such as the breed and age of your dog, consistency of your training and continuity of your training.
Within a few training sessions, many problematic behaviours can be corrected - many owners find it easiest to work on correcting one behaviour at a time to avoid confusing the dog. You might also sometimes need a refresher session for your dog if you’re training them for a skill that they don’t use often. Many dog training collar users find that after using a remote training collar, their dog is overall more attentive and responsive, and has a better relationship with them.
Your dog training collar will come with a product manual, so make sure to spend some time reviewing the instructions before you begin training your dog. This will ensure you have a good understanding of the product and can get the best results from your training sessions with your dog. The greater your understanding of the pet training process, the more of a positive bonding experience training can be between you and your four-legged friend!
