Best 3 smart collars for training your dog

training a dog

Is your dog constantly barking, annoying you and your neighbors? Does your dog jump onto the furniture or destroy the garden while you are out? 

Maybe you have tried training collars before, but you have lost the remote control, or the dog ate it! 

Now, there are several smart training collars available that can turn your phone into a hand-held dog-training device.

With the help of a smart collar and your mobile phone, you can train your dog to stop jumping, digging, barking, and other bad behaviors. 

You can set and adjust the level of collar correction (stimulation, sound, or vibration) through your mobile phone or even record your own voice to be broadcast by the collar.

Smart training collars can have several different features, such as bark control and activity tracker. These can help to keep your dog safe, healthy, and well behaved.

I have a first-class honors Physiotherapy degree and a second class honors Sports Science degree. I am also a certified Yoga teacher and Yoga therapist. Before completing my University education in the United Kingdom, I worked as a fitness instructor and athletics coach for many years. Since 2008 I have been practicing in the UK as a Chartered Physiotherapist, and traveling to European and World Cup tournaments with the Wales Masters field hockey team as their physiotherapist. I am passionate and actively involved in health and fitness and in the process of research and writing. I believe everyone should have access to the latest health and wellness research in simple, easy to understand language. In 2009 I published a research article ‘Is Yoga An Effective Treatment for Low Back Pain’ in the International Journal of Yoga Therapy. Currently, I am a freelance writer producing content relating to physiotherapy and health and wellness. I love anything animal! I have three rescued dogs and two parrots. I placed third lady in my city’s annual marathon (dressed as a bunny!) to raise funds for an animal welfare charity.
