Shock collars are used by some dog owners to discourage excessive barking or to remind their pet to stay close to home. However, recent tests conducted on humans (at their own hand) revealed that these collars are more than a simple training device... they are downright cruel and inflict needless pain on the very pets that people claim to love.

Use of a shock collar can have long term negative effects on dogs as well, causing them to show fear at the sight of their handler and an avoidance of going outside or spending time in groups of people or dogs.
