A pet owner who decided to try his dog's shock collar on full power had exactly the sort of reaction you'd expect, after his friend hilariously barked at it. Watch the video below:
Steve Yendle, 59, got zapped with thousands of volts of electricity when he tried on the new anti-barking shock collar, which was set to maximum strength.
He tried it on before his dog Tilley had a go - eventually deciding not to use it on her - without knowing his friend Paul Travis had secretly turned the power up as high as it would go.
When Paul did a hilarious fake bark - it's that that does it for me - the collar emits a high pitched buzzing noise.
Filmed by Steve's wife Sandra, 57, he can be seen holding it tight to his neck while the warning noise goes off, before Steve gets an almighty shock and collapses.
Paul and Sandra can be heard in hysterics in the background while Steve swears and desperately grabs at the collar to try to remove it, but realises his hands are shaking too much because of it.
Steve is collapsed over the couch in the living room of their home in Newport, while the pair giggle at the funny sight.
Security guard Steve said: "It was awful, I felt it right down in my toes.
"I just wanted to feel how the shock was but Paul had turned it all the way up and I never thought it would tingle all the way down to my feet!
The Yendle family have four dogs, but they had bought the collar for their Patterdale terrier, Tilley. After Steve's experiment though, they've decided to give it a miss and won't be using it on her.
Cleaner Sandra, 57, added: "Steve is one of the biggest jokes around, he'll try anything!
"He loves his animals and wanted to try out the new bark collar but had no idea Paul had set it to the highest shock.
"It sure shocked him!"
Steve and Sandra definitely made the right choice in not going ahead with using the collar.
The Kennel Club is against the use of them, with a section on its website reading: "We are against the use of any negative training methods or devices.
"We believe that there are many positive training tools and methods that can produce dogs that are trained just as quickly and reliably, with absolutely no fear, pain, or potential damage to the relationship between dog and handler."
