Default Getting a Shock Collar for My Sister's Dog

I'm going to go get one today, and I'm really tempted to try it on myself first.

Bad idea?

... or, you could try training it without resorting to the electric shock treatment ... like maybe sticking it in the microwave, dousing it in petrol ... all humane ways to train animals

Ummm
Look on the internet.
I have seen some vids of people trying the collar on themselves and while it doesn't look as painful as a Taser I'm not sure I would volunteer to get zapped.
On the other hand, it would give you a better understanding of what is happening to the dog.
I have been shocked countless times by 24v circuits on boilers and while it isn't pleasant it doesn't really hurt.
120v circuits, on the other hand, do leave a lasting impression and create a willingness to double check circuit breakers before doing any repairs.

Don't give me that crap. I have two dogs, both of which are well trained, and I wouldn't even dream of using this on them.

However, my sister's dog resists training, doesn't respond to verbal abuse and nose tapping, doesn't respond to spritzing water in the face, etc. This is a last resort thing because the dog barks so insanely much when you leave the house, even with two other dogs present, that the neighbors are getting pissed and getting the authorities involved.

@ADA, good point. I have been shocked by 120V before and ya, its not very fun. I'm just interested to see how much of a shock there is.

lol nice pic Desert.

We tried putting one of those collars on my old dog (may he R.I.P.).

Lets just say it didnt work. He didnt even notice the damn thing was on. He just kept barking and runnin around and stuff, pretty amusing.

Sounds like you too light on your punishment if the dog gets outta hand. If I told you what we had to do to my dog, you may get pissed. Nothing inhumane, just a little worse than nose tapping.
