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.

      Thanks for the feedback friends, looks like about a $3,500 surgery and yes, the professionals say what you have all said that a second ACL injury happens often in the other hind leg as a result of over compensating....

      Here is the prize list for this years contest. Lots of food and drinks available at the contest also. Booya will again be sold on the ice provided by the Little Canada Fire Department.   My apologies, I cannot figure out why this will not present the correct way.   Fishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdf

      The warm weather has opened up some cracks and you can watch the road operators earn their money.  New roads were popping up quickly and bridges were set and the day went off without a hitch.  Thanks for good quick work so we could all fish today. BTW....fishing is staying pretty solid.....Here is today's report

      Chuck was a real, authentic, honest to goodness good guy.  He loved being on the radio and you could tell.  Radio lost a friend.  RIP Chuck
