We Test an Electric Dog Collar

Keeler has a barking problem, or more accurately, a neighbor has an issue with Keeler’s dog barking.

To remedy the situation he researched, and subsequently purchased, an electric dog collar.  Then, of course, he talked about it on the air.  Much criticism followed and so the staff decided to test the dog collar on our staff.

In the interest of full disclosure everyone on the show (including the author of this post) tried it.  We all agreed that it was stronger than we had anticipated, and the results were split on whether Keeler should get rid of the collar.  Note that Keeler’s wife weighed in immediately following the purchase and the case to return it was made, and accepted, even before the test took place.

We took an online poll and, so far, more than seventy-seven percent of those who responded said that the use of electric dog collars is cruel:
