With the bark collar the dog automatically gets zapped every time it barks.

The electronic training collar has a remote and is controlled by the handler.

Both collars should have settings that adjust to the requirements of the dog.

Kcat if your neighbor says the collar is a ETC with a remote it probably is.

Someone should ask the dogs that have been dumped into shelters for chronic barking if they'd rather wear an e collar for awhile or be in the situation they're in. I'll bet if given a choice most of them would take the e collar in order to be able to stay in their former homes.

A well trained dog will make no attempt to share your lunch.

He'll just make you feel guilty while you're eating it.
