A Dog Shock Collar is the most common tool used when training dogs. Inexpensive, safe, and effective, this clever device is able to give guidance to what behaviors are right and wrong. They come in different sizes; so rest assure that even your smallest pet can have a collar that will fit properly and will deliver significantly less static than those used on larger dogs. Shock Collars are customizable; you'll be able to select the level of static based upon the persistence and attitude of the pet.

No. A shock collar is NOT the most commonly used training tool, nor should it be. Cockers are very sensitive dogs and don't respond well to the use of such aversive tools. Shock collars have their place in the world (it's still preferable to euthanizing a dog that you can't stop from barking all the time), but there are MANY avenues an owner should try first.

Positive reinforcement is the most common training method!
