In order to make it become
part of his normal environment, let your dog get used to wearing
the collar for a few days before ever activating it. Let him see
you with the transmitter in your hand. This way when you do activate
the collar, he won’t associate the correction with the collar
or you; as he has seen you with it and worn it before with no consequences.
During training the collar is switched on and ready
If the dog is not already wearing the collar, put it
on at least 20 minutes prior to commencing a training session.
Organise at least two to three training sessions a day
of no more than 10 to 15 minutes a time, so that neither of you lose
your concentration or patience.
If there is a specific behaviour you are trying to stop,
create the situation where you know your dog is going to react. This
gives you the ability to control the situation.
Always use the lowest stimulation level as possible.
If your dog shows no reaction increase the stimulation to the next
If training in new locations, be aware your dog may
become distracted, you may need to reinforce your commands with the
remote collar more often as a result.
Always reward your dog for good behaviour. This will
reinforce the good behaviour faster and the dog will want to please
you more. Would you work for nothing!
Always end a training session on a positive result and
try to play with your dog so he feels good.
The biggest one! BE CONSISTANT!
