Training with e-collars is an art that must be done correctly.
Dogs are much like people in that they respond to a variety of stimuli. When training a dog, it is ideal to incorporate voice, visuals, and touch into the equation. In doing so, you will be able to provide clear communication despite situations where they are distracted or experiencing auditory exclusion. To incorporate touch, we utilize remote dog training collars, also referred to as e-collars. While we do not incorporate e-collars into all of our training programs, we have found that they are a helpful component of training if you are looking for off-leash reliability and heavy distraction proofing for your dog. At Sublime K9 Training & Boarding, we offer a training package for these situations that includes training your dog to respond to e-collars correctly.
It is important to note that e-collars are nothing like traditional shock collars. In fact, the tingling sensation they deliver is so low that you wouldn’t even feel it on your hand. To your dog, it is a feeling like being touched on the shoulder, which works well to gain their attention. Since e-collars will not be effective without the related training experience, we do not sell this product other than as part of a training package.
E-collars are a great option for training dogs to maintain property boundaries at your Jefferson City, Tennessee property, communicating commands in a more positive way, teaching dogs not to bark or jump, and correcting other behavioral problems. The training must be done correctly, so your dog won’t see e-collars as a punishment when placed on them. E-collars are a part of a balanced training system that incorporates both positive and negative reinforcement and punishment for well-rounded results.
