This may not be a popular opinion, but our training shock collar has done wonders for our dog. She was a little crazy when we brought her home from the SPCA. Her foster owner started her training but she was much like young Luke Skywalker rushing off to face Vader before he was ready. More training did she require. The shock collar can be adjusted to a little zap or a big zap, momentary or continuous, and it has made a huge difference in curbing unwanted behaviors. It'll work for barking, jumping, chewing, and overall not listening situations. I rarely have to even use it now, but when I put it on her and she sees that I have the controller, she listens WAY better. I was worried that it would somehow make her less affectionate or standoffish, but, if anything, she's calmer and more cuddly than she was before. And pit bulls are cuddly, despite the image.
