The high price of remote electronic pet training supply collars is causing many to question if they should continue to buy them or just give up the hassle. I believe that with the technology that is out today you can easily teach your dog or cat how to use the collar without actually buying one. All you need is a clicker and you can have them using it in no time.
To start, you need to purchase a couple of things. First you will need to purchase a remote transmitter and receiver collar. This is the main pet collars you will be using. It has a transmitter which is coded to know what action is to be performed when the collar is activated by movement. This action is similar to when you click your mouse and it gives you different commands such as “sit” or “stay”.
Next you will need to purchase some batteries for your transmitter and receiver. The batteries usually last about a year and then need to be replaced. You can find batteries at any pet store, but make sure you buy the ones designed specifically for the transmitter and receiver. Also make sure that the batteries are not too small or big for the receivers and transmitters. There are many different options on the market, so you shouldn’t have any problems finding what you need.
Now that you have both the transmitter and receiver collar you will be ready to get started. The next thing you want to do is get a pet training supply that uses a vibration rather than static shock training collar. When you use a vibration on the collar, it causes the collar to produce a small shock each time the collar is activated.
A Vibration Feature
So, let’s say your transmitter and receiver collar has a vibration feature and you want a more subtle option. If so you should consider a pet training supply that uses a high-frequency sound. These are typically used in training dogs because they produce a higher frequency sound which is much louder than the static shock. You can also get a high-frequency dog collar, but you will pay more money for it. You can also find options that are more like radio-controlled collars, but without the vibration.
Both transmitters and receivers can have different types of accessories on them. Some of these accessories include remote control units, vibration immunity, built-in spray emitters, and even remote diagnostics. If you want to be able to find out what options you have on your collar before purchasing it, make sure that you read all of the information that is included with the electronic pet training supply dog training collar.
The manufacturer may tell you that you only have one option, but most manufacturers allow you to modify your collar. The more options you have the more comfortable you will be with it and the less likely it will cause you discomfort when using it.
The more comfortable you are with a pet training supply the quicker you will learn to use it. It does not take long for people to become comfortable using a product they use on a daily basis. If you are not comfortable with the collar you have purchased it may cause you to give up using the product altogether. There are a number of manufacturers that make pet training supplies so if you cannot find what you need it is often easy to find something that works for you.
Your final consideration when purchasing an electronic pet training supply dog training collar is whether or not the unit is waterproof. If the unit is not waterproof your dog and the training session can become quite messy. Also, if the unit is not waterproof the electronic components inside could malfunction. You should always purchase a pet training supply dog collar that is waterproof.
