Remote collar training for dogs is my area of expertise. And my passion is helping people understand how to use the e-collar in ways that aren’t so, well…… shocking. 😉
In addition to teaching and training here at my facility in Southwest Wisconsin, I spend a fair amount of time on the road traveling and instructing workshops. Here is a small clip from a recent training workshop in Cleveland, OH.
The topic for discussion was; does the stimulation need to hurt or be aversive in order to work and teach the dog something?
My volunteer, Mitzi, is a professional dog trainer who attended the seminar to learn more about remote collar training. She and the fellow trainers in the audience experienced a bit of a shift in thinking when we did this little demonstration.
What do you think?
If you’re curious about the paradigm shift, you can check out this previous blog that explores the same concept with a canine partner.
