Dog Training Collar in Hua Hin?

Post by Davy B » Mon Oct 06, 2014 2:48 pm

I am looking for Dog Training Collar for my dog. I have been in a few pet shops in town and they know what I am looking for but have either don`t have one or have sold the last one. I have seen them on ebay but they are coming from the USA or China. Does anyone know somewhere in Hua Hin that I can get one or have a name and number of someone in Bangkok that may be able to help. Thank you.

Are you talking about a chain link choke collar or one of those shock things?

If you mean the shock type hopefully you wont find one, they are needlessly cruel.

As are the "choke collars" IMO.......

Although I've met a couple of people lately who I'd gladly fit either to!! :twisted: :twisted:

Ha ha ha!! I agree with you there, pharvey. I can think of a few aswell. I don`t want to appear cruel because I love my dogs but my little pitbull is starting to rip at the throat of my 2 year old Staffy and I cant get her to stop. She is only 3 months old and I know she is still learning but I feel this could cause me problems when she is older especially when we are not there or our backs are turned. They play fight which is fine and normally they are great together but she doesn`t back down when it gets a bit rougher and starts biting at the other ones throat. We have a kennel which she is put in for a "punishment" but she howls non-stop and disturbs my neighbours who must think I am torturing her. Any suggestions.

Yeah, don't expect a pit bull to get along with other dogs. Depending on where you got it, it could come from a lineage that were bred to fight each other. :|

^^ I agree. I don't know Davy B, and I genuinely don't mean any offense, but I don't understand the attraction of a pit bull, which is indisputably ugly and by nature often aggressive, over so many other breeds (including the much-maligned rottweiler) as a domestic pet. I don't entirely buy the "it's how you raise them" argument. Some of these dogs are just plain mean.

As for practical advice, I remember looking around for dog training options a few years ago for our retriever. There was some kind of army set-up suggested. I can't remember the details, but it involved leaving the dog with them for a couple months, and we were far from convinced that our soft-hearted golden would benefit. Might be a different question for a pit-bull. I also think you'd have to wait until the dog was a year old.

I think you must be thinking about a bulldog rather than a pitbull. We were given her by a friend of my wife and she is gorgeous. Have you heard the saying about someone having "a face like a bulldog chewing a wasp"?? She is in contact with a several dogs on our estate including thai street dogs and of course she is smaller than every one - including two pugs. Now that IS an ugly dog if ever I have seen one!!

Not intending to take this thread off topic, but there was a documentry on True Visions a couple of nights ago about Micheal Vick and dog fighting. Well worth watching and dispells a lot of the bad rap concerning Pit Bulls. As posted above, it is more to do with the intentional cross breeding, rather than "all Pit Bulls are vicious" and dangerous.

The dogs involved were rescued by a group of volunteers. One of them ended up as a certified hospital therapy dog. Interestingly, they had to carefully plan a road trip across the US to move them, as aparently, if found in some states, they are destroyed on sight.

The Misunderstood “Pit Bull”

The “Pit Bull” isn’t an actual breed at all, but a slang term that current american culture uses to describe any dog that has a big head, cropped ears, brindle coat or eye patch usually a large/stocky dog. The true breeds most commonly labeled as Pit Bulls are: American Pitbull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Unfortunately the Pit Bull has become popular with the gang-subculture who have exploited this breed by forcing them into dog fighting rings, and breeding and training them to be aggressive. Today, many people automatically associate the Pit Bull with crime, gangs, and poverty when, in fact, most Pit Bulls are owned by your average upstanding citizens. With the explosion of Pit Bull breeders, thousands of Pit Bulls are ending up in shelters across the country, topping the list of the most euthanized pet. The fact is, millions of Pit Bulls are living peacefully in homes throughout the country.

PITBULL FACTS AND FICTION:

Pit Bulls have locking jaws - FICTION. Pit Bulls can't lock their jaws. Their jaws are constructed just like any other dog. In fact if you take the x-ray of a Chihuahua and compare it to that of a Pit Bull, you will see that they are both the same except for the size difference.

Pit Bulls are unpredictable and more likely to bite than other dogs - FICTION. Pit Bulls are no more vicious than Golden Retrievers, Beagles or other popular dogs! In a recent study of 122 dog breeds by the American Temperament Testing Society (ATTS), Pit Bulls achieved a passing rate of 83.9%. That's as good or better than Beagles ... 78.2%, and Golden Retrievers ... 83.2%. How did your favorite breed do? See for yourself - go to: http://www.ATTS.org

Pit Bulls are good with children - FACT. Pit Bulls always test high as one of the most stable breeds of dogs in the country. These statistics can be found with the American Temperament Test Society of the United States, where they always fall as one of the top five most stable dogs. Because of this, they are extremely patient and tolerant of children.

All Pit Bulls will "snap" and attack a person sooner or later - FICTION. Pit Bulls are a very popular breed and rarely attack. Pit Bulls are very powerful animals, so when something does go wrong, it usually makes the news. Almost all Pit Bull attacks have involved unaltered Pit Bulls, so it is very important to have your Pit Bull spayed or neutered as soon as possible. Additionally, serious Pit Bull attacks rarely involve spayed/neutered Pit Bulls who have received proper training and socialization.

Pit Bulls are good dogs for apt./condo living - FACT. Though Pit Bulls are athletic and love to get out and play, if they had their druthers, they would be sleeping on the couch, 24/7. They are short coated dogs and do not do well outside in the cold weather or very hot weather. They don't shed too much and are easily groomed, thus making them the ultimate indoor dog.

"Red nose" Pit Bulls are more aggressive - FICTION. Are blondes dumb? Do redheads have a quicker temper? Of course not. "Red nose" is simply a color/style. They have a lighter pigment such as a pinkish nose with yellow/green eyes. They act no different than black, brindle, or white Pit Bulls.

Pit Bulls are easy to train - FACT. Extremely easy to train. All they want to do is please you. As they are so sensitive to your feelings, verbal training comes easily with this breed.
Pit Bulls cannot be with other dogs and/or cats - FICTION. This is probably the biggest misconception and biggest misunderstanding when it comes to this breed. With proper training and handling, your Pit Bull can learn to live peacefully in the company of other dogs and often cats as well.

"My kids are around pit bulls every day. In the '70s they blamed Dobermans,in the '80s they blamed German shepherds, in the '90s they blamed the Rottweiler. Now they blame the pit bull." - Cesar Millan

Pit bulls get a bad rap because of irresponsible owners. Many people consider the look or popularity of a breed before thinking about whether the dog works for their lifestyle. Please evaluate your lifestyle before taking on the responsibility of a pit bull.

Pit Bulls are no more aggressive than any other breed of dog, but they are incredibly powerful so if/when they do attack, they cause serious damage, but the same can be said for any large breed.

I have only owned one American Pit Bull, and I can honestly say he was a wonderful dog that never showed any signs of aggression towards people or other dogs. Just like the Rottweiler I have now, my Pit Bull would have slobbered over an intruder rather than bite them.


Rottweilers are supposedly also killer dogs that love ripping kids apart, but yet I could easily leave my Rottweiler alone in a school full of youngsters without any fear of her biting anyone.


Now, I wonder how many Poodle owners can say the same thing? :laugh:

Brilliant article, Arlo. I hope people will not be so judgmental after reading all about these types of breeds.
