Vibrating Collars

Ian and I were talking last night about the stuff we need so we can bring Tanner into out home. I brought up something that I have come across a few times in pet product catologs and online…a vibrating collar. I don’t know how well this would work so I thought I would ask and see if any of you have used it or have an oppinion on it. There are many articles online about using them to train deaf dogs but I still would like to get as much information as possible from all sources. Please let me know what you think! Thank you so much!

On this day..

    We have a cattledog on our flyball team who is death and was so from birth. She is also a Dazzle Dog you can probably google them. Anyway her
    Mom uses a vibrating collar and it works really well with her!

  • “…who is death…”? :) What a great typo! I imagined something like “death to the balls” or something equally indicative of her enthusiasm!

    Anyway, Amanda, I’m about 95% sure that we actually have a vibrating collar here that you would be welcome to try out with Tanner. Barbara picked up a couple to try out when we got Tommy, but we were never happy with what we found. The major problem for me, at least, is that the battery life on the collar didn’t seem to be very good. Somebody also gave us a shock collar (along with some dog we rescued a long time ago), but we have OBVIOUSLY NEVER TRIED IT OUT.

    This is something you should try out here at the house with Tanner before investing any money. Heck, if it works for you, we’d probably just give one to you. (Full disclosure: I haven’t discussed this with Barbara yet.)

    I’m betting Cyn means Deaf, not Death. Typo’s are hard to catch sometimes, spellchecker doesn’t catch it unless it’s spelled wrong! lol
    I’ve had no experience with vibrating collars, you’ll have to let us know if it works!

  • i’ve never used a vibrating collar with Frostbite (he is deaf), but we tell him most things he needs to know/do through his sister. EG We tell Lula to go out side and he follows.
