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.

Thanks for the info. It is greatly appreciated. I will get her started on just wearing the collar tonight.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
