I tried a Walmart e-collar on the highest setting, but it didn't work. Which of your e-collars would you sugges?
I have a yellow labrador. He is 2 years old and very friendly, but when he sees people, he takes off... Tried the Walmart e-collar and put it to the highest level but that won't stop him at all. So, you have so many e-collars, I don't know the right one for him. Please help...
Did you do any type of collar conditioning or training with the ecollar first? If you want dogs to respond to the stimulation from the e-collar they need to learn about how the stimulation works first. these collars are a tool that work very well IF you teach the dog about it first. You don't just buckle the collar on the neck and push the button.
I'd recommend making sure your dog is trained in his basic obedience commands ON LEASH first. Basic Obedience We have an excellent video on how to train a dog with the electric collar Electric Collar Training for the Pet Owner. Watch this first before attempting to use the ecollar again.
Well, for your info I do know how the e-collar works---- I find that you are very rude.... And the e-collar you suggest is for a small dog. I don't want a e-collar like the one I have... Any ways, thanks for the help...
The ecollar I suggested is what we use on our Malinois and German Shepherds every day here, with great results. I've been using these collars for years and have a bit of experience with them.
I was not trying to be rude, but from the email you sent you can see why I answered the way I did. You said you put a Walmart e-collar on your dog and tried the highest level. That's NOT the correct way to use an ecollar. It's not only incorrect, it's unfair to the dog.
I'm an advocate for the dogs out there, because most people don't really understand how to correctly use the ecollar. If that offends you, I'm sorry. You wrote for advice, and I offered it. Who's the rude one?
