Q. We are using the Educator 3/4" contact points for our Malinois. Are these the correct size?
We have just purchased an Educator 400TS remote trainer from you. We have a 10 month old Belgian Malinois. We are using the 3/4" points. Are those the best size or do we need to get the extra long ones? We have just begun to test the collar on the dog.

Thanks for your input.

A. If your dog doesn't have an extremely thick coat the points you have should be sufficient but the selection of equipment is always dog dependent. If you find that the collar doesn't seem to be making consistent contact once you start using it regularly you can always switch the contact points.

I use the shorter points with my dogs (Malinois) with no issue.

Educator ET300 Mini Remote Dog Trainer
$179.99
The mini Educator ET-300TS is a mile remote trainer loaded with unique features making it the most humane and effective trainer available. The ability to set the boost level from 1 to 60 levels allows the user to tailor the boost stimulation to your dog's temperament. Smaller dogs typically need 1 to 20 while bigger more stubborn dogs require the 20 to 60 boost range. The lock and set greatly reduces the chances of over stimulation by allowing the user to lock in a desired stimulation level.
