[quote=julie87;2646539] This is the fastest and the most consistant way to teach a dog if you don't have the patience and a lot of time to train them, or don't have money for professional trainer.
If you don't have the patience, time, or money for training, then you probably shouldn't have a dog.
Dogs learn almost instantly with shock collars on. You can't always train them other ways...If your dog runs in the backyard barking waking the neighborhs how are you going to "train" her to stop? will you be running around after her telling her to be quiet?
This is where time and patience is needed. You can train your dog not to bark at the neighbors without using a shock collar. Walking your dog on a leash and redirecting them is a good start
Treats and redirecting don't always work unless maybe if you did it as full time job. Like I said earlier I use shock collar as last resort it is not a primary training method
I have two dogs that were trained this way and I'm now working with the third. Its not a full time job, it is consistency. I would not train any other way. I'm not looking for a fast training method, I'm looking for a reliable one. One that I can bond with my dogs with and be proud of what I accomplished.
