Would you put one of the new shock collars for dogs on your pet? Maybe you already have one on your dog because he stays outdoors. I think it's important to address why someone may purchase a shock collar. As we all know, many pets end up getting run over by cars, trucks and rigs. This could be for any random reason. Maybe they simply aren't paying attention, or maybe they spotted a rabbit and bolted after it. Remember that all of these animals run on instinct. They simply can't help it.
