What are the objections to this? It just makes a noise doesn’t it? :confused:January 5, 2009 at 9:51 am #110906MudgieMember
Yes a high pitched noise which the dog doesnt like. Not a very positive method of training. I used to think this sort of stuff did no real harm but now, through learning more about it, know that it can have real negative emotional issues for the dog.January 5, 2009 at 12:43 pm #110907kendalMember
but dogs give each other negative responses to corrects behavior they don’t like. i would like to see it in action before i say it is a useless training aid.January 5, 2009 at 12:50 pm #110908IzzieMember
Dog do, but dogs also understand their own language and speak it. Humans cantJanuary 5, 2009 at 1:11 pm #110909MudgieMember
I never said it was useless. What I said is that it is not a very positive experience for the dog and not one I would condone.
I would rather encourage my dog to do the stuff I want and reward that than give him a horrible experience that may be detrimental to his emotional wellbeing.
I want my dog to be happy not fearful.January 5, 2009 at 8:28 pm #110910SuzAndTheDivaMember
Dogs do give negative corrections at times.
But- while that sort of noise thing would reduce her to a quivering wreck – even a sound telling off (if appropriate) from another dog wouldnt do that!January 5, 2009 at 8:58 pm #110911AnonymousGuest
there are much better ways to interrupt behaviour than this – i clap … its cheaper !!January 5, 2009 at 9:40 pm #110912*Nick*Member
