How To Use a Vibration Collar to Train Dog?

Vibration collars are not designed to be cruel or punitive. Rather, they work by emitting a vibration that is meant to distract the dog from the behavior they are displaying.

Vibration collars are similar to other types of training collars, like shock collars, in that they are designed to correct a dog’s behavior. However, unlike shock collars, vibration collars do not deliver any kind of electrical jolt and instead simply emit a vibration that is unpleasant for the dog.

Pros and Cons of Vibration Collars


  • Low level of discomfort. The vibration is gentle and safe. Some dogs have learned to ignore it after a few days, but most will respond quickly to the vibration without becoming overly stressed or uncomfortable. There is no danger of choking or injury as there can be with other types of collars. This makes it a great choice for nervous owners who are worried about using more aggressive training methods on their dog.
  • Ease of use. All you have to do is press the button and the collar will vibrate at the desired frequency level, letting your dog know they need to respond immediately. You can point out exactly what you want them to correct, and because this type of collar uses positive reinforcement (in other words, rewards), it encourages your dog to want to do good things instead of bad ones!
  • Not all dogs are affected by shock collars, so if yours has been unresponsive in the past this might be just what you need!


  • While vibration collars are effective for most dogs, they may not work with stubborn or deaf animals that need stronger stimulation from an electric shock collar in order for them to sit still when told or stop barking incessantly outside during walks etc… It’s important not assume anything when choosing which kind would best suit your pup – talk with a professional trainer beforehand if possible before making any decisions based only on our advice here today :).

How To Use a Vibration Collar to Train Dog?

The vibration collar is a powerful way to train your dog, but it’s best used for dogs that have already received at least some basic training. When incorporated into an overall training regimen, it can help a dog become more responsive to commands.

Be sure to use the vibration collar consistently in conjunction with your verbal commands, and reward good behavior by giving treats. The collar will help reinforce these positive behaviors.

In order to get the most out of this method of dog training, it’s important to be consistent with how you place the collar on your dog and when you use it. Make sure it fits properly (it should sit snugly on their neck) and choose the appropriate command for what you’re trying to teach your pooch—your commands could be as simple as “sit” or “stay.” The vibration coming from this device is designed to grab their attention so they’ll pay more attention to you during training exercises. It shouldn’t hurt them if used correctly—the sensation is more like a buzzing feeling than anything else—but if they seem uncomfortable or upset after using it, take a break from its use until they’re better able to adjust.

What to do When Your Dog Won’t Respond to the Vibration Collar

If your dog isn’t responding to the vibration, you are likely not using the collar correctly. For example, if you are using a remote shock collar, be sure to have the receiver facing outward and check that it is touching your dog’s skin. If it is not, the vibration or shock will not work.

If correct collar placement doesn’t solve the problem, you may need to try a different training collar. You might be able to use a different type of stimulation such as a tone (beep) or spray (citronella or air). You could also try a vibrating dog collar instead of one that uses shocks. Finally, you could try training your dog without any type of electronic training device at all.

If all else fails and your puppy still won’t come when called when wearing his vibration collar, he may benefit from some additional training methods in addition to what his electronic device provides. Before starting each training session, take him for an energetic walk or jog so that he is more responsive to your commands during training time. Also make sure that there are treats nearby—your puppy will be more motivated to come when called if there is something in it for him!


If used incorrectly or too frequently, vibrating collars can have an adverse effect on dog behavior. This is why it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions, which should be provided with the collar.

The use of vibration collars is an ethical practice that will result in a well-behaved dog when used correctly and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
