One Nation, Under God

A Shocking Idea

While packing up my hunting gear at the end of the season I realized Dot’s e-collar was switched on, the green light still blinking feebly.

I turned it off and started to put it back in its box then realized I might need it again before next fall.

Commonly referred to as a “shock” collar, it’s what I use to keep Dot in range, an electronic leash of sorts. Among the options on the controller are two small buttons for tone and vibrate, and a larger one that administers an electric shock. I call it the “ouch” button.

I use the “ouch” button sparingly, worried that too much pain...
