Well look at it this way, there is a trainer in Canada that has a youtube video of him doing some work where he is smacking a dog around. I don't have a clue why stuff like that is out there, but it is.The part that I find difficult to believe or understand is why would someone use *THIS* pic to showcase a well bred dog prime for acquisition? Is all of the bling bling a declaration of desired admirable status? Does this pic possibly serve as a WARNING of the dogs temperment? Could someone find a attraction to the fact that the dogs behavior is such that these tools are required to manage the dog? Why not throw in a muzzle and a choke collar for a added bonus?
Good point here, Anyone ever heard of Unleashed Technology? They make remote trainers that are mainly Vibration collars, they do have shock ones available. The collar part is just about the same look as a Tri Tronics one and the Remote is a bit similar to the older style Tri Tronics remotes.What if the shock collar is actually using a tone or vibrate rather than a shock for recall work or something like that?
