Do you have a snap lock collar for the Educator ecollars instead of the regular buckle collar? Our dog jumps and bites us anytime we try to approach him so we are having a hard time putting collars on him.
We purchased an Educaor ET300 Mini Ecollar from you a few months ago, and the collar that goes around the dog's neck is made like a belt. We were wondering if you have a collar that would fit through the Educator ET300 Collar that snaps (like many cat collars are made) in place instead of buckles. This dog is a hard dog, and despite the commands that he knows, insists on fighting the buckling part of the Ecollar when we put it on him. In fact, he jumps and bites in play anytime we approach him, and so this makes it very difficult to get this Ecollar on him. If we had a collar for the Educator ET300 that snapped together, this would make it a lot less stressful for us and also for the dog.
Thank you very much, and I hope to hear from you soon.
I would recommend working on taking more control of your dog during this process. I would use marker training to teach putting collars on and off in a respectful way. I would have a leash and dominant dog collar on him and would expect him to remain seated and calm while I put the ecollar on and off. I would practice this in itself as a training exercise. I would put the collar on and off the dog many times in a row and only end the session when he behaves calmly. I would do this multiple times a day and at times where I had no plans on actually using the collar.
This is actually leadership & respect issue. I expect my dogs to remain calm for me to put collars on and off, wipe their feet, look at their teeth, etc...
This is more about the relationship you have with the dog and not about him being stressed out. He's trying to control the situation.
At this time, we do not have a snap lock collar for our ecollars. There may be one out there that fits, but I'm not aware of it.
I hope this gives you a place to start working on this.
Thank you, Cindy. What you suggested makes a lot of sense. I know the dog is trying to control me and I don't want to go to war with him. I want him to respect my dominance as the leader of the pack so that doesn't happen. Like I said, he is a hard dog. I will be measuring his neck so I can order a dominant collar and hopefully, that will do the trick. He already has a prong collar on him, and in walking on a leash it works quite well. In other things not so well. I will try your suggestion and hope for the best.
Thank you for your advice.
