Jessica Biel Uses Controversial Shock Collar To Control Her Dogs!

| Filed under: Jessica BielEva MendesDog

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel is one fit, fab and strong lady!

But, apparently, she can't handle her "beasts" all on her own.

We always see her walking her two powerful looking dogs, a boxer and a pit bull, who are absolutely adorable BTW, but guess she needs to have a little extra insurance ’cause she was spotted walking them with two controversial remote shock collars around their necks.

Hmm, is that really necessary? We're sure she has enough dough to shell out on excellent dog training! At least, we assume!

Wonder if she's tried using one on herself like Eva Mendes??

Considering Eva said it wasn't as shocking as she assumed it was, we admire the actress' thoughtfulness. Let's hope Jess does the same.

    I have one for my dog. They're great.

    Nothing controversial about shock collars. I guess since she CAN afford training of her big dogs and still chooses to use the collars that makes her a little bit more human in my eyes. I love my dogs. I used to have a 60lbs pit/lab mix. I'd like to see anyone handle that bundle of joy when she lost her shit. No amount of anything worked on her so I learned my lesson and got me a shock collar. She was wonderful to walk after that and no squirrel or squirrel would deter her if she was on the collar and that made me happy and healthier cause I was not in jeopardy of loosing an arm or falling and breaking something vital or worse, hurting someone else.

    Um…with everything that is going on today, this is what you chose to freak out over? Pu-lease. Get with it Perez.

    They're legal for a reason. Using a shock collar was the only way to make my Alaskan malamute/golden retriever puppy actually listen to me. I loved it.

    Actually shock collars are a bad idea because the dog can be getting shocked for something he didnt do wrong. Those collars can be triggered by other types of reactions. Lets say a dog got excited to see a person or child…**SHOCK**. And now you have just created a bad association with kids or that person and your dog. There are other things you can do to control your dog other than harming them. Period.

    Call me crazy but I would choose shocking my dog over watching it maul a child to death any day.

    First of all, shock collars have varying degrees of intensity, which don't necessarily harm the animal, its just necessary for different variations of aggressiveness and the size of your pet. Second of all there are also options were the collar simply vibrates rather than inducing an electric shock. Third of all, a negative association isn't created with the child or whoever the dog jumped on, a negative association is created with the act of jumping. The dog will still love all people ranging form small to large regardless, as long as the owner isn't abusing the shock collar and turning it all the way up to the highest voltage. People please educate your selves properly before speaking.

    My cat was killed 2 nights ago by a pair of pit bulls that keep getting loose in my neighborhood. They also killed my neighbors cat, and I'm sure many more. A friend who owned a loving and sweet pit bull as well as loving cat (animal buddies for 8 years) came home to find his cat mauled to shreds. Then there are the human fatalities. It happens ALL the time. I love animals. I love people. And pit bulls should be exterminated as a breed. I think it should be against the law to breed them. Any one who owns one should be held fully accountable for the actions of their dog. Done and done!

    Disgusting. I have never and will never use a shock collar. I have a large American Bulldog and a Boxer mix that is fairly large as well. I have also worked at animal shelters and a dog kennel. It is called training and socialization. I have NEVER had a problem with any dog to the point where I though "oh cool let's shock the crap out of him if he is doing something nutty because that is super effective". No. Your dog should be trained to pay attention to you and listen to your commands. I trained mine myself, you don't need a fancy trainer you just need to work hard and do it the right way. Shock collars also have a negative effect on a dog and can end up making them more aggressive and/or fearful.

    As for Devestated… your comment is ridiculous. Pit Bulls themselves are not aggressive attack dogs. It is their owners who fail to socialize them and train them properly. There are plenty of other breeds that have the ability to be just as dangerous. Put it on the owner, not the breed as a whole.

    Devastated Re: Devastated

    Ignorant people should be exterminated. Again I emphasize educating yourself because "Pitbull" is not actually a breed of dog (YES ITS TRUE GO READ ABOUT IT) the term comes from the mixture of bull dogs used to breed this animals and how they used to be bred to fight in pits. So yes, unfortunately, these dogs have a very aggressive nature, but with the proper training these are some of the most loving animals on Earth. I totally agree that OWNERS should be held accountable for their dogs actions, but not the entire breed in itself.

    She's probably worried about the safety of the others on the street, and maybe even other animals that may pass by. If her dogs attacked someone, no matter how well trained they were, she would be sued for MILLIONS.



  14. 14

    After seeing two dogs get into it the other day, one with its jaw locked on the other, and once separated, which took ages, the defender dog had a chunk of its face missing. Imagine if a child were involved. It's a good precaution, considering!



  15. 15

    It's a smart move. Who knows how even the best trained dogs will react with paps in an aggressive manner snapping photos a few feet from their owner.

    Re: 12qwe – This is the most ignorant thing I have seen all day. Pit Bulls are "nanny dogs". The first dog in the White House, sweet bundles of love. Any and EVERY dog who has attacked a person or animal has their owners to blame. Learn how to train your damn dog. "shock collars" are equal to those ab workout belts. They contract the muscle at a CONTROLLED level only for corrections. The collars are to be used to train and then phased out. I have a 65lb. American Staffordshire Terrier who is a show dog and service dog to my PTSD affected Iraq War Veteran husband. He has changed my husband's life for the better.

    Petey from Little Rascals is a pit bull for christ sake. Learn your shit.

    Re: StMarie – There is no such thing as a dog with "lock jaw". If a tiny chihuahua wanted to hold onto something, it could. The difference is the pressure per inch. For the record, German Shepards and Labs have higher pressure levels than pit bulls. also, pit bulls have a higher pass rate in temperament testing.

    Perhaps they're actually vibrating collars. They look identical to shock collars and can also be operated by remote. Many people use them in place of shock collars.

    Once upon a time I had a lovely English pointer who loved to jump on people, and when we left for work he would bark like crazy (lived in an apartment). So we got one of these collars, started out with the shock for a few days, then scaled it down to the option where it emits a high pitched noise that only the dog can hear. Worked great!

    Re: Elizabeth – That's the owners fault, not the collar.



  21. 21

    There is a responsible way to use a remote collar. If you are uneducated about how they work I can see how they might seem harmful, but they absolutely DO NOT hurt a dog. Using one also does not mean you haven't trained your dog. Remote collars are frequently paired with effective dog training.

    They are called remote trainers, not shock collars. I would suggest doing your research on how they actually work before posting a picture condemning a responsible dog owner.

    You know what? There are times even a shock collar doesn't stop an out of control larger breed. Just know that.

    Re: jesy – Never said the dog had lock jaw, but had its "jaw locked" on the other, by that I meant a strong hold. Once pulled away the aggressor dog had a piece of flesh from the other in its mouth. I was temped to run over and give it a swift kick in the ribs as a distraction, but luckily didn't have to. What it comes down to is owners need to be in control of their pet, no matter what.
    What of it?



  25. 25

    for big dogs sure. not for little guys lol. but I still could never use it. I would feel guilty all the time when they get shocked.

    Re: jesy
    Nanny dog - EXACTLY.
    Our deaf American Pit Bull Terrier has panic attacks when we keep him away from our 2 1/2 year old son and 2 month old daughter. He was the easiest dog I've trained, even being deaf (sign language). He actually "listens" better than our other dogs that can actually hear. I've been an advocate for bully breeds since we got Maximus. THe problem with them is that they're loyal to a fault and exactly why they can be trained, along with ANY other breed, to be nasty. It's the owner, not the breed(s) as a whole. I wish people would wake up.

    Re: Devastated
    I'm sorry your cat was killed, but it is the owner's fault for not keeping the dogs properly fenced in and not fixing the problem of them getting loose. I've rarely seen a cat and dog get along and I've had both my entire life. Just because your cats were killed, you shouldn't blame the breed as whole. You blame the owner, not the dog. And why were the dogs able to get at your cats? Did you keep them outside or did the dogs break into your house? Obviously, they didn't break into your house, so you're partially at fault, also.
    And no, my dogs shouldn't be exterminated just because your cats were killed. Should I have killed my English Springer Spaniel we had growing up because he killed my bird??
    P.S. There are also many other breeds of dogs that have killed humans, but you don't hear about it. I was bitten in the face by a yellow lab. Should we kill all of them off, too??

    Re: Leencore – Avoid pointing fingers and making assumptions. Sometimes animals act as…animals. Pet owners must take responsibility, but they're not always in the wrong. Things happen, the world is not a perfect, safe place — even if you're attentive. Quick story, two separate cases of friends came home to find their pits had killed their cats. The animals had always cohabited well in both cases. It's devastating when things like that happen but no, the owners were not at fault, unless you don't feel dogs can be trusted to roam in a house unsupervised.

    Multiple comments accusing others of being ignorant are ignorant themselves. Pit bulls aren't unusually aggressive in nature, the problem is if they snap at something unexpectedly and out of character, it's a liability with their combined strength. Again, animals sometimes act out as animals. 42% of fatalities from dogs are by pit bulls, so it's important owners are responsible and proactive. Not to point that breed out, but it's gotten a lot of attention, obviously.
