A question that comes up often is dog owners asking "which level" is right for their dog? Here are a few tips from Professional Dog Trainer, Robin MacFarlane. 🙌⠀⠀

📌The numbers on the dial don’t matter other than to serve as a reference point, because in reality the setting being used is either: too low, too high, or just right.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📌This is why I also continually remind people to keep their eyes on the dog. The dog determines whether or not the level needs to be adjusted.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📌Those two key points are critical and worth summarizing so let me repeat: Stimulation levels are indicated by the🐶 dog therefore you must keep your 👀eyes on the 🐕‍🦺dog to know what level is appropriate.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📌Using a level that is just right will get the dog’s attention without being overly concerning. It will cause the sniffing dog to lift his head from the grass. 
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📌Be patient. Start low. Slowly reading your dogs behavioral change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
