Book or Video for E-collar training

4 posts in this topic

Just looking for anybody's suggestions on a training source for using e-collars. I have a brit/lab mix female that is 5 years old and has been thru obedience classes and has done pretty good thru that, but when she gets on birds/chippy's this time of year she will not listen. I bought one and now need to learn how to use it without going backwards with her. She is so soft hearted I don't want to hurt her, just want her to listen when running during the summer months.Thanks for any help.

Mike Lardy has a video/manual for e-collar conditioning that would be worthwhile checking out.

Tritronics also has a DVD for this but is probably not as detailed.

Whatever you do, make sure you have a good knowledge of what your going to do and how to use it before you turn it on. It is only used as a correction for commands the dog knows and has been conditioned on. You should start letting the dog wear it now and for a few weeks before starting to use it.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
