This clip really brings out the "Mama Bear" in me and I can tell you that, despite the fact that I am a VERY shy individual, if she so much as suggested that to me for my dog she'd get an earful. At least. Wish I could just scoop that poor pup up and take him somewhere safe.
Normally I don't bother posting on shock collar trainer, or sellers, fb pages, but I was so ticked when i realized what she was using the collar for that I decided to try. I really was as diplomatic as I could be in my post on the page yet it was apparently deleted. So not only is she using shock collars on fearful, anxious, stressed, dogs, but she's unwilling to even discuss other training techniques.
I think the video rubbed me so wrong because of my own fearful dog. I could just picture how he would be if I put that collar on him and shocked him for simply self soothing or reacting to something
