Swedish Dog Trainer Runs Experiment using Shock Collars to Train People

Just became aware of this. This is great for the “but I put it on my arm and it doesn’t hurt” crowd.

In the first experiment, the trainer first checks people’s reactions to the shock collar at different levels on people’s hands and arms before moving on to the neck.

In the second, he attempts to “train” people to do tasks with the shock collars around their necks and set to Level 2 (out of 10).

All of this is videotaped and posted to youtube. Unfortunately, it’s mostly all in Swedish and Turkish.

That’s all I’m going to post on this topic for a while (unless something fabulous comes up).
