|Wally66||Just looked on Amazon. They look great but they are $159.99. Kind of wanted 2 of them. LOL All heck breaks loose when the UPS or Fed Ex people show up.|

Thanks RP. I bought a $35 one. Works but the battery doesn't last very long at all. Telling the dog to shut up only goes so far. LOL Just makes more noise. I will be ordering me a Sportdog collar. You can't be watching the dog close enough even if they are in the house with you when they bark.
They need that immediate response to work. If you are sitting in your chair with your training collar hitting the button a few seconds too late you are gaining nothing. Maybe even ruining your training collar operation. And you won't be relaxing with your dog.

|Ugly boat||Sport Dog bark collars work just fine. But I think if someone is tormenting a therapy dog that the authorities should be notified.|

Thank you Gerry for calling REW out. Last I looked I think REW was approaching 35K posts. Thatís an awful lot of information for one guy. Iíve been a member on here for about 20 years, Iíve followed some truly amazing members over the years that have humbled me with their expertise. Sadly many have moved on.

|NM_Trout||Too bad you can't put the collar on the upstairs tenants. Then get them to make the dog bark.|

And it was actually something Thumper repeated that his father had said to him.
And lastly, your spreading - maybe even creating - lying propaganda against e-collars in the midst of a discussion about them is actually the opposite of saying something nice.
But sure, other than that...

REW - I get what you're saying about posting "nicely" and you usually do that very, very well, Sir. We all get chippy from time to time.
Gerry jumped you (and rightly so) because you made some bogus claims (more than likely it was just your opinion) and then it would "appear" that you searched out some support for your bogus claim, and tried to pass it off as good information when really, your support info was pretty much bogus too. That's all that happened here.....

I might suggest that you go the Walt Disney show "Bambi"
In particular, when Bambi's mother mother said to Bambi - "If you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all."
I hope that you wake up in a better mode tomorrow. Or, if you are having trouble in your life, I hope that you work out the problem.
But above all do your best to be happy.

|Ozark Bob||Collars are for training. While you are out with your dog. The unwarranted barking is is also a trainable behavior. If you use the collar for punishing the dog you should not have a collar or a dog. If you use the same attitude with the dog as with your children when they are 2 or 3 years old you are doing it right. I still use the collar on walks, but vibration is all that is ever needed. It is just for when attention wanders when other critters are involved it just reminds them of their training. In the beginning the lowest setting is used to get the pups attention when you give a command. I strap the collar on the inside of my forearm to see what intensity is appropriate. I could not feel #3 or less at all.(1 to 10 scale) I used #2 and did all the training without ever raising the intensity. I use the Garmin Sport Pro. JMO Bob|
