March Break & Training Collar?

March break is quickly approaching! Its next week! One of my owners are coming home from university tomorrow! I'm pretty pumped! She plays with me for hours! Shes the one that actually found me at the SPCA and volunteered there so she could go and see me a alot. She is so good to me! This is a picture of me and her about to go outside to play in the snow! What a fun time!
My owners are trying to find me a training collar. They want this so that in the summer, they can take me to the beach and such and not worry about me running and they won't have to keep me on a leash while I'm trying to swim! That would be annoying! I was wondering if anyone might have one (if so, what kind and how much did it cost?) and would know how well they work and if they actually hurt dogs? Becasue God knows my owners DO NOT want that! They heard it is just like a static shock aslong as you dont put it up full blast! Any suggestions? Any reasons why they shouldn't get one, cuz I LOVE to run around outside and I can't do that becasue my owners are scared I'll run away... I need to be trained to stay near them because I'm not used to having a family to stay near.

wish i had some good advice regarding the collar situation, but my mommy and daddy don't let us run around without one anywhere but our own front/back yards.

i'm sure your mommy's gonna figure out something for ya, jack, she seems like she wants to make sure you're having lots of funfunfun (which is always a goodgood thing!)

hope you're having a great weekend, with or without the fancy-schmancy collar thingy! : D

(actually, there might be some good information on-line about training collars & such, if i see anything interesting, i'll let ya know! i think dog fancy has a website, maybe there?)

Hey Jack,

Finally added you to my Paw Pals list. And thanks for puttin' me in your links.

I too am an adoptee. Our humans are great! aren't they? Like you, I was very dirty, scruffy and skinny. I was adopted five years ago last Christmas time in Denver, Colorado from the Denver Dumb Friends League. Hey, I'm not dumb!

My dad/typist/secretary had to put down his friend of 15 years about a year before he found me. Every time he would see dogs on the magic box he would get upset. After a lonely year, his wife told him he needed another dog. So here I am!

He saw my photo on the internet. It was love at first sight. Who says matchmakin' on the net doesn't work!?

I am now about nine or ten years old. The humans at the DFL thought I was about 4-5 years old when they found me. I guess it was the tartar on my teeth. I wasn't brushin' my teeth while I was on the street. Now Dad brushes my teeth every night. Yummy!!

I also was a terror when I first went to my new home. MY problem was bein' leash aggressive. Actually, I still am, but it is now much easier for my humans to control me, but I still give them trouble. Hey, why not?

I had lessons from http://www.barkbusters.com/ when I lived in Denver. They recommended a choke chain (Mine is leather) and a Halti. Not a Gentle Leader. The Halti is simpler to put on and they said it works better. For more on the Halti please see http:/www.dogpatch.org/
training/halti.html
.

I am a great house dog. I never chew anything that isn't mine and I don't poop or pee inside, yet. I am gettin' older though.

I better get goin'. It's past Dad's bedtime. I hope I haven't put YOU to sleep and that I have givin' your humans some info that may help or get them started in the right direction. Not knowin' your exact situation it is difficult to know what is relepherant. At least you're not a C-A-T. I do have several C-A-T friends in the big ether though.

Good luck!

Woof!

Thanks Freda! I'll take a look at those sites! I'm really glad your human found you! I'm getting quite use to my new home now. However, yesterday, I put my front paws on the counter trying to get at a dish my owner left there for 2 seconds! *hehe* Silly me!

And thanks to you too puppytoes! My owner did get me a new collar, but shes scared to try it on me! *hehe* She feels bad for doing it I guess. But I think thats all she can do to teach me to not run away! *hehe*

cute dog! ;)

Dog training collar can be really helpful for many dog owners. The best way to use it is only when the dog is doing unwanted or undesirable behaviors that you do not want them to do.
