Agreed!attitude said:using a shock collar can advance training or screw it up completely. i have no qualms about training with a shock collar but have been schooled on proper use. these collars are not the quick fix that alot of people seem to wish them to be. proper foundation work is still needed and knowing when and how to use the collar is very important.
#1 - DO NOT just put it at whatever level you desire and then shock your dog. That can cause huge problems in training them.ZeldasMom said:Has anyone had to use a 'training (shock) collar'?
ZeldasMom said:Yes, I have tried positive training. We've been working on it since April and he hasn't changed. He doesn't like to do the attentiveness training either. When I try doing that he'll go after my knee caps. However when my husband does it, he is fine. I just plain out think he can't stand me. I don't know why either. He's done this since day one to me.
I agree. Sounds like he takes you for granted. In his eyes you may be letting him get away with a lot more than your husband. Maybe you should try being the only one who feeds him and trains him... at least for a while.. unless he starts respecting you.attitude said:to me it sounds more like you have a respect problem with your dog and no collar is going to fix that. he "plain out can't stand you" because you are letting him. personally i think both your trainer and vet need to be changed. i simply find it ridiculous that your trainer wants to fry him and your vet wants to drug him !
Your pup isn't having training issues that can be fixed by a collar. If this were a pulling issue I would say to try the pinch after you got the needed instruction.ZeldasMom said:
