Shock Collars - The Horror of it All!
May 8, 2019
Hosted by Bryan Bailey
Hundreds of years ago, when Christian Humanist and scholar, Desiderius Erasmus penned the phrase “Man’s mind is so formed that it is far more susceptible to falsehood than to truth,” I am sure he wasn’t contemplating the future opinions of dog owners, dog trainers, veterinarians, and all other so-called behavioral experts about the use of “shock” collars for training dogs. Instead, he knew at the time that the truth, with its inherent ability to expose human frailty and sin, was a much harder pill to swallow for most people than a lie. Thanks to mass - media - driven - hysteria regarding “shock” collars, we are doing exactly that; swallowing a lie. As a consequence, just mention shock collar to another dog owner and you will be pummeled with one horrifying animal research result after another testifying to their cruelty. The horror of it all! Listen as Bryan explains the "shocking" truth behind the use of remote training collars for establishing reliable behaviors from your dog.
Taming the WILD in Your Dog

Dog ownership is supposed to add years to our lives by reducing our stress levels, lowering our blood pressure and increasing our desire to connect with others. However, achieving dog ownership nirvana is far more difficult than simply petting a dog. There are issues and questions ranging from the harmless to the potentially deadly, and when dog owners turn to the internet, veterinarians and professional dog trainers for answers, these sources fail to answer their questions with the accuracy and honesty that is required to establish a safe and harmonious relationship between them and their dog. That’s because anyone who THINKS they are a dog expert can pose as one and as a result, the answers they provide lead unsuspecting pet owners away from the quality of life they desire and the safety they need. However, I am an expert and my answers are what dog owners need. The answers are correct and not B.S. The welfare of dogs and their owners can’t afford anything else.
