    My sister is having a problem with one of her dogs. She is not working right now so money is tight. Does anyone know where the best and cheapest place is to buy a shock collor. The dog she is having issues with is a medium size dog. Any info would be helpful.

    I would use Google to search the internet, call all the local feed stores and places that sell hunting supplies, then compare the prices of what you find to those on eBay.

    Feed Stores, Wal-Mart has them, hunting supply stores.
    Try craigslist They don't solve all problems, though.

    Just about any where that has animal supplies would have one. You will just have to shop around for the best price.

    I cant believe no one has said this yet; dont you think there is a more reasonable way to correct this problem then through pain? Like, positive reinforcement?
     
  7. A shock collar ONLY works if you are present when the dog goes and does something that it is not suppose to. Problem is they usually don't do the thing you do not want them to do !! So a shock collar is near worthless.

    When we 1st moved in to our house , a dog came running into our garage. He was real friendly and we were petting him, when all of a sudden he started screaming in pain. He had a shock collar on and it was zapping him. We immediately took it off being careful not to touch the metal things. Their was a tag with his name and phone so we called the owner and left a mssg. Locked him in the garage. The owner picked him up, put the collar back on and aid that sometimes it malfunctioned and welcome to the area. Don' know what the deal was but I've been weary of those things ever since.

    Shock collars work great. You just have to know how to use them. Iv used them alot, with great success. Id look on Ebay, they seem to have alot of them on there. [​IMG]

    My dogs all wear shock collars for the underground fence. If your willing to put the time into the training they are a good thing. I followed all the instructions provided, did internet searches and worked with my dogs for almost a month before I let them roam with out guidance. They only were shocked twice alone before they learned as soon as the collar beeps back away. My collars have the option to turn off shocks which I have done and they still work wonders. As soon as the collar beeps they turn and head the other way. My beagle took off after a rabbit and stopped dead in her tracks as soon as the collar beeped. It is truly like having a solid fence out there. Now I would never leave them out all day without some supervision. But atleast I now let them out and don't watch like a hawk.
