Eva Mendes explains how she tested her dog’s shock collar on herself before putting it on him on David Leterman’s “The Late Show.” It might sound a bit crazy, but there’s an explanation for everything.

On “The Late Show,” Wednesday night, the Fast Five actress talks about her Belgian Malinois attack dog, Hugo, and how she keeps him from killing animals.

“All he wants to do is prove his love to me, you know, all he wants to do is kill for me. It’s so sweet,” Mendes told Letterman, adding, “I’d feel terrible if he hurt a little thing so I try to get in there and I use — people always get mad at me for this — but I use a shock collar on him.”

She quickly explains that she tested the collar on her arm before putting it on Hugo.

“I do not do it on my neck. I tested it on my arm. It’s more than a tingle, it’s way more than tingle. Oh, remember when we were kids and we had that jokey thing where you shake hands and ahh that thing? It’s like that but intensified the higher you go with the levels.”
