I was on ebay and came across one of those electric bark collars that delivers a shock…not exactly the same as the ones of old that were set off by every little thing and delivered high power shocks, but the modern ones that deliver warning tones and vibrations before low level shocks that increase in intensity up to a maximum.
I should note at this point I don't want one – my dog is luckily a sensible barker! I was just suprised that my opinion on them has changed!
But they seem a lot more humane than the ones from ten years ago, and if it means that a dog can stay with a family that might otherwise rehome them that must be a good thing right? Although I'm sure they do get misused by some evil excuses for humans who shouldn't be allowed anywhere near dogs..
What do you think? I'm interested to see if opinion has changed these days.
