    lol, very good, the video is doing the rounds on facebook, it is such a shame that people think these type of things will help their relationship with their dogs and cure unwanted behaviour.when the dog needs to learn the correct behaviour that they haven’t bothered to teach.

    Funny video! Good to point out the crap tools people are still using to train their dogs.

    I agree that positive reinforcement training is the best and most effective method. It requires a lot of patience and consistency but it is by far the best method. However, the pet corrector does have some good uses in pet training.
    I have a 6 year old chihuahua at home (barely 6 lbs) and two 5 month old Louisiana Catahoula’s (45 lbs each) who are a hunting and herding breed, so they’re extremely rough with the chihuahua and borderline kill the chihuahua in any interaction. The puppies intentions are just to play but their paws are huge and it’s hurting the chihuahua. The chihuahua hisses and growls at them and tries to defend herself, but she’s too small and like a moving toy, which the puppies love. The pet corrector was literally the only thing that helped keep the small dog safe. Though the puppies are always supervised since they’re puppies, they can get away quickly when they hear that the chihuahua is on the move and one wrong move could kill the chihuahua so easily.
    In extreme cases like this, I think the pet corrector is great, but for majority of the time, consistent and patient positive reinforcement training will do the trick. Unfortunately a lot of people are too lazy, inconsistent or uneducated in how to train the dogs properly. But like I said, in some extreme cases it can be helpful.

      I would disagree. You had a result but I can almost guarantee that a different approach without the PC would be possible.

    I disagree. After several training classes my bouvier pup wanted to be boss and would turn on me if he didn’t want to do something (like go home after a long walk). I only had to use it a couple times and it stopped him in his tracks. NEVER aim at the dog, it’s just the noise that works. that was 4 years ago and he is a wonderful companion. There was a point when I thought I wouldn’t be able to keep him.

      None of his behaviour was about wanting to be the boss. I’m glad it wokred for you and your dog recovered but why did he start behaving? If you can answer that you can examine how the PC works. You would have been able to get the same result quickly with less aversive training if it worked that quickly.

    this is legitimately one of the best videos on YouTube!!

    Everythin nice and all but it is a shame that he doesn’t explain why this is no good for training your dog. In the comments below I only see “You would have had the same results with other methods”. Is the sound of the spray harmful for the dogs? Or is there any other reason why you should’nt use this tool?
