Before I knew any better, I always thought shock collars for dogs were a form of animal abuse. That is until I talked to some of the dog owners who have bought this and realise the problems they were facing. The first thing to understand is to forget the angel face pet which you have by your side. The dogs that needed this are not like that. It is so bad that some owners called them satan or devil dogs because they are so destructive and do not obey any form of command. The shock collars represent the last hope these dog owners have before either giving them away or ….killing them LOL.
Anyway, if what I have described is the situation you are facing, then you will come to the right place as I have narrow down the best shock for the money you can buy.
Best dog training collar review
The model I recommend is Dogwidgets electric dog training collar. I choose this based on numerous feedback from dog owners as well as reviews on Amazon.
Currently, this model sits at over 1700 reviews! That is a lot of reviews and if it doesn’t work, it will have a low star rating by now. However, after 1700 reviews, it still has a 4 star rating, meaning this shock dollar for dogs really work.
The most impressive thing about this shock collar is that it really work. The stories from Amazon all showed how badly behaved dogs become more obedient after giving them some gentle shocks. This is the greatest relief that these dog owners felt and the main reason why they think this is a fantastic product.
How the dog shock dollar works is simple. You hang the collar around the dog’s neck and there will be a remote for you to control the collar. Everything the dog becomes out of control, simply choose which level of vibrations you want to sent and press the button according. There has been some confusion over which button controls what so I will break it down:
- Button 1 to 3 controls the duration, not the intensity. 1 has the shortest duration
- Button 4 to 6 controls the intensity, with 4 being the mildest
Quality wise, the Dogwidgets dog training collar is well built. It is comfortable on the dog and doesn’t fall apart after several uses. The control is also durable and probably survive a few drops. It has a good battery life, although not fantastically so. Price wise, it is very reasonable and affordable.
However, there are a few things that probably can be improved on.
- No clear instruction on how to use the controls
- No clip on the back of the controller which means you cannot hang it on your pants or jeans
- No front cover on the controller that prevents you from accidentally pressing the buttons and giving the dog a shock that it didn’t deserves.
Overall, the Dogwidgets dollar is probably one of the best shock collars for the money in 2015. There might be comparable models from other brands but you wouldn’t go wrong with this. If you have a willful dog that is becoming uncontrollable, give this a go.
