Why hate on a game system at all. I tend to go with sony myself but that's preference on the variety of games available for them. Most of the games I like are available for both systems but some are exclusive to playstation. I do have an Xbox 360 because I do like some of those games that you can't get on playstation. For that matter I have every Nintendo from NES to 64.
Have a ps4, love it. Will get an xbox one and sure I will love it. And mastered the art if playing fetch with the dog while playing games. Even pull it off while raiding in ff14. But if my dog wants attention, the games go off. Might I suggest filling a kong with peanut butter to keep him busy occasionally?
Shock collars are crazy. I shocked myself with one once and it HURT. I would never use or suggest one of those except in the most dire circumstances. In that type of case, the dog should be re-homed to someone more suitable anyways, so it shouldn't really be necessary. I'm okay with the ones that only beep and vibrate though.
Yeah they hurt, that's the point. So does a hot stove, and you only have to touch it once to learn as a kid not to. It hurts but doesn't harm, and some dogs can just ignore anything less. I've seen invisible fence collars work wonders, and I've been zapped by that once, ow, but it keeps a beagle from following her nose and running off. My cousins dog is a bit high strung, and he used a shock collar when she was acting up beyond what was allowable, after getting shocked a couple times all it takes is him bringing it out for her to be on her best behavior. She's a good dog, but when dogs get riled sometimes nothing gets through to them. A bit of pain often breaks that mood.
Place your Xbox higher up so your dog can't reach it to turn it off.
Don't play with the dog then turn on the xbox immediately every time! He will associate it with end of playtime! Play with him, do something else, then go to the xbox. Don't let a routine form & he won't associate the xbox with anything bad. And if he does turn off the xbox, don't play with him immediately for the same reason!
Yeah play with your dog if they figured out how to do that then you know you have been playing too long
