Veterinarian Schools -Veterinary
Something that I believe is very important issue that should be studied thoroughly in veterinarian schools is the topic of static dog training collars. Now why would anyone want to make his or her dog suffer for doing something that comes natural? I am talking about anti barking dog collars of course. Dogs are born barking, they communicate by barking. All of their important functions within human society as watch, guard and companion cannot be possibly completed without the ability to bark. Whether it be a warning bark to let their owner know that danger approaches, a threatening bark to let potential trouble makers know its time to move on, a plea for help for their owner in need of immediate assistance or just a cursory bark to let us know that they are on the job. If you forcibly take away the ability of your dog to communicate by making them wear an anti barking dog collar you not only do them a great disservice but you inhibit their natural function. What if you were to all the boys in a grade school and put devices on their throats that gave them a shock if they utter a sound? How long would they remain sane? Now we not only have electric shock anti barking dog collars but we have more "humane" sonic anti barking dog collars and spray anti barking dog collars. The sonic variety emits a high pitch sound that causes the wearer to stop communicating. Imagine it you will, that every time you opened your mouth to say something a fog horn went off in your ear. There are of course other correctional types of training collars and not all of the models operate the same but I truly believe that every student going through veterinarian school should spend time looking closely at the issue.
