Static shock collar
[Return to Topics]

I have a young Great Pyrenees pup that is driving me nutty, I raised 2, and now we have a 3rd, she is chasing my chickens and getting them down, same with my goats, I have yelled till I am tired of yelling, I have whiped till I am tired of whiping,
I have been tring to find a static shock collar, the tones and the beeps and the vibarations have no effort on her, and the animal rights idoits have protested against the collar so much that now I can not find one, I have been online for 2 days, from bass pro shop to all the wal mart links to all my cataloges, Jeffers, Omaha Vaccine, and many more, can some one tell me how I can make one from scratch and it will work, I do not know very much so tell me in terms a 3rd grader would understand, tell me how to make a collar that will sat her on her tail and make her stop, I have reached my limit with her, she is 5 months old and I aim to stop her, please give me directions and formulas to building a collar.

We are struggling with our Pyr that is a year old. She plays with the new lambs and is making them limp. Please let us know if you found something that worked to train your PYr.

I had a shock collar on one dog, a 140 lb Rottie/dane mix. He laughed at it.

My nextdoor neighbour told me his dog as learned to tuck his chin down on his collar to block the signal.

Seems like he only needs out about once a week and keeps on comin back. This is no bull.

Donna you can get some powder stuff called "High Life" that will break the dog for you. I used to get it from our vet. I don't know who makes it.

If you wear long rubber kitchen gloves and sprinkle the chix with the dust when the dog gets it in his mouth it sets him on fire like jalapeno pepper does people.

I used it for years with Walker hunting dogs and pups and it never failed.

I never figgered out how it would burn a dogs mouth and had no effect at all on the chickens.

Wellcome to the world of the Giant breeds! We have raised Newfoundlands for 17 years and have had 5 at one time not counting when we had 15 including a litter. We have 2 right now and want more. They can be fun at times. Most people who get the giant breed do not understand how important it is to be the alpha dog in the group. Yelling at a 5 month pup won't work nor will hitting him. You have to grab the dog flip it on its back grab both cheeks get right in their face and growell just like the Moma Dog would and say NO!! You have to dominated the dog while you can. This is the only way you can control a dog who will be 150-190 lbs soon. You must forse the dog to be held while young and smaller in size. This sounds mean but it has to be done for them to learn. We adopt Newfoundlands who are on there way to the pound because of this not being done. Then it is real hard to do later on in life. If they become agressive they have to be put down because they are capable of killing you with there size. Shock collars will not work good on the long hair type dogs to well. Let me know how it works for you. Remember use only 2 words when training one to get their attention and the other for the comand. Good Luck, Mark H.

Lordy I have done all this, I have raised dogs for years, She is a problem, She is a good dog, I am at my wits end.

We have a Bronze Newfoundland male and he loves to run around the chicken pen. We sorta let him have fun because the chickens know he can't get to them and they tease him. He is worth alot more than a chicken so he stays and the chickens stay in the coup. We just had him OFA Certified and we get 1,000.00 a shot for stud service so he earns his keep more ways then one. Real good looking male too. Mark H.

I'm not sure I entirely believe a dog can be
broken of that kind of behavior.
Maybe because he's young enough, but I'd
guess that if you whack him and he still does
I don't think you're ever going to be able to
trust him. He'll watch, and the first time you
turn your back.
Maybe you need a donkey, I'm pretty sure they
don't put up with that.

Oh, wait, heres what you need, a big old nasty
rooster. We had one and a neighbor's dog
came sneaking around one time and caught a
hen. When that rooster was done the dog had
to be put down, there wasn't any face left to
speak of. I tried to get it off the dog, but there
wasn't anything I could do, I didn't want to be
on the receiving end of those spurs. We
eventually had to put the rooster down as he'd
even try to have a go at us.
Course you don't need a rooster that nasty,
just a bit mean would do.

The rooster is what got this started! and now she is after everything, she was not like this before, I would say No!! and she would leave it alone, but
the rooster pi$$ed her off

Personaly I would pen up the chickens so he could not get to them. If we would let ours run loose either the Coyoties, Hawks, Owls or one of our dogs would have them for dinner. I wouldn't pay for a collar that might not work. As far as livestock goes they now better cows can get mean. A dog that will attack a goat is bucken to be put down that is not correct in a farming area. Once they get the taste of fresh blood it is hard to change or ever trust them again. I just feel chickens belong in a pen because they look to good to eat to our dogs and a lot of other animals. I live in a part of the country that if you don't keep the small things penned up the wildlife will eat them. There just part of the food chain around here. Mark H.

Have you tried sporting goods-the kind that stock stuff for hunting dogs? Might try Cabela's-I think I've seen 'em in the Mitchell, SD store, but they are pretty pricey. (My $0.02 worth. jal-SD)

Maybe try one of those air horns, like they use at football games. Blow it everytime she gets near anything you don't want her to. You can get them at WalMart, no assembly reguired.

You might try Southeast Hunting & Trapping supply, or Cabela's, or call around to all the outdoor sporting good stores.
