The revolutionary hand held Pet Corrector device is designed by the world leader in pet behavior products, the UK based The Company of Animals.
Outside the trainer has a whip and a pet corrector while walking the dog on the slip leash. The reactive dog approaches another dog’s rear to sniff and wags it’s low tail. Ears are pinned almost the entire time. Leash is also tight almost the entire time. The trainer continues to walk the dog back and forth amongst the other dogs.
How I see it now: I’ve learned that dogs learn by creating assocations with their environmental stimuli. I see that this dog is now associating other dogs with the human using the pet corrector and pulling on the leash. All the trainer is doing is creating negative (bad) associatons with the other dog while teaching the dog what he doesn’t want. The dog has no other skills in it’s history to fall back on and instead just shuts down and refuses to interact with other dogs at all. This type of training relies heavily on punishment and the fear I have is that once the dog goes home and this trainer who is consistent and timely is gone, the punishment will cease and reveal that the behavior issue is still there. The dog has not learned anything other than to suppress it’s urges when the traner is around.
So this lady at the park recommended the "Pet Corrector".
Company of Animals 3-pack Pet Corrector
Bella is having some behavior challenges. Someone recommended the Pet Corrector Stop Barking can. It "emits a loud hissing sound to stop unwanted behaviors" according to the packaging. Not sure if it's a good option for a rescue when we don't know her history. Any experience with this product? With training? What do you think? Use or return?
I got it here - Snakes, insects and birds such as geese, use their hiss sound to drive off predators, and our domesticated pets have an instinctive sensitivity to this sound. The Pet Corrector emits a hiss which mimic this sound to interrupt undesirable behaviors such as jumping up or stealing. There is a detailed training guide included, with helpful training tips and key Dos and Don’ts. It is important that the Pet Corrector is used responsibly.The Pet Corrector by The Company of Animals featured on KWGN Colorado's Best - 9/13

This is the kind of barking that I do want, and I was very pleased to see that the ‘pet corrector’ worked when I needed it to but also didn’t stop Holly from barking when it was appropriate.
