Ok posting this here since maybe one of you can help me. We are looking for an e collar/shock collar for one of our German Shepards. He is about 6 years old and is slowly becoming more protective and aggressive. Plus he has a very bad habit of chasing and chewing his tail when he feels panic - almost anything can send him into this state tho - from a cellphone ringing to cars on tv, to us laughing.
This is really becoming an issue now since a year ago we had to amputate about 5cm off his tail since he chewed this raw as in to the bone!
He has been thru vet visits like mad to try and determine if there was some nerve damage in his tail that caused him to chew it but after various scans and xrays and tests they determined he is just a very sensitive dog that has loads of issues (we got him when he was about 8 months old and suspect he was abused before that). He gets loads of exercise and play time and chews such as rawhide and hooves. He has 2 other females that keep him company but he still acts up a lot of the time. The one female has started grabbing him by the scruff of his neck when he starts going into panic mode - but this doesnt stop him, he just goes and hides and does it where we cant watch him.
Hence we finally decided its time to try and see if we cant stop the behaviour and the aggression towards family friends with the shock collar. He doesnt bark all the time so we dont want a bark collar just one of those that gives them a mild shock (we cant use one with noise since he reacts badly to strange noises.)
Where can I find a decent one?
