E-Collars and Aussies...Good Idea or Not?
I have gotten some great advice from this site. If you are a regular reader, you may have heard from me before. I am the owner of Tucker, a 5 year old male with an obsession with any kind of ball on TV... there is no watching any sporting event on my TV without locking him in another room! We have tried everything and it is getting worse. He is a great dog but when it comes to the TV, my husband and I like to say "he has got a screw loose"!
I am not a fan of e-collars but would like to know if anyone has used one and what the outcome was. My vet had told me not to use one on an Aussie because it could make matters worse. My husband has lost complete patience with the situation (can't blame him at all) and we are desperate to fix this problem. It also must be very stressful for Tucker. He just can't relax when the TV is on and anyone who says that dogs don't watch TV, have obviously not met Tucker!
Any advice on e-collars for an Aussie would be much appreciated.
