SportDOG FieldTrainer SD-425

By: Megan Hambrick From MT

Family pet.

Jolene is responding to her training with the e-collar incredibly well. She had solid obedience before, but as soon as she was off leash she would deliberately disobey my commands because there was no accountability. She is also a sensitive dog (anatolians are known as such...) and I was worried about how she would respond to the collar. I watched the DVD with Robin and Steve and made sure I knew what I was doing before heading out into the field. At first, she was really anxious about the new sensation, but I ensured that we took our time getting used to the collar and I continued to use tons of positive reinforcement. Now, just a few short weeks later, she definitely knows that a little tap means she needs to listen--no different than a tug on the leash--and I can generally get the behavior I am asking for just by using the vibrate setting. Basically, I have gone from an e-collar sceptic to an e-collar believer! Can't wait to see what results will come from more training.
