Training collars

I have a 2-year-old German Sheperd, I would like him to be trained. I'm thinking of Shock collars. What do you think about using those collars?

    I would recommend getting a collar that doesn’t shock, as I personally don’t think these are humane, I would instead recommend getting a collar that beeps, which is a collar that produces an annoying sound that the dog doesn’t like, and he will eventually learn what to do.

    There are also collars that vibrate.   Shock collars are mean.  The last thing you want to do is hurt your dog and make them fearful of their training

    My old dog which was beagle used to wear an e-collar, it is effective but then again you would have to talk to a professional trainer first to seek for other options aside from using this product. You can try to check these shock collars for dogs that I found online. You can see that they have different features the reason why it will be better if you ask a dog trainer so that it will be easier for you to find out which of these varieties will be necessary for correcting your Labrador Retriever excessive barking behavior. Lastly, you need to know the pros and cons of using shock collars.
