Thank you to everyone who attended our FREE SEMINAR Sunday 1/20 11am at Watson Lake Park!
We had a great turn out with a diverse array of dogs! The weather was kind and everyone had great questions.
When we use e-collars, they are just one tool in a holistic array of techniques. They are never used as a short-cut to meaningful character development – there is no short-cut to building a genuine relationship with your dog!
We covered what e-Collars can and can’t do, how to use them safely, how to introduce them to dogs of different ages and stages of training, and how they’re used differently in the context of obedience training or when addressing problem behaviors.
With our E-collar Essentials seminar, we clarify all your questions about remote electronic training collars. Deb and Michael cover the basics and demonstrate just how gentle this training tool really is. We offer perspective on how e-collars can fit into a training program, and how they provide a safety net for an active, fun life with your dog. We present dogs at different training stages and include plenty of time to talk with you about your individual needs.
If you’re reading this and your reaction so far is “oh, you mean a shock collar,” then you really should talk with us and come to see a few dogs being trained! We use levels so low it’s easy to miss the subtle signs that the dog feels anything. And we move to the vibration-only mode very quickly. In everything we do with dogs, our aim is to foster deep learning while coaching for responsibility with a great attitude.
We cover this and more:
- the benefits of remote training collars
- how remote trainers work, the options available on different models and how to choose the best model for your situation
- how to prepare your dog for e-training
- how to get started, including some simple ground rules to prevent problems and keep your dog happy
Who can benefit from learning more about e-Collars:
- if you love to get out in wide-open places with your dog
- if your dog has great obedience, but loses it with extreme distractions (squirrel!)
- if you have any physical limitations when working with a leash and collar
- if your dog has particularly troublesome issues like stealing food, eating poop, chasing cars/cats
- and more!
