Q. How do I know what level of stimulation to train with?
How do I know what level of stimulation to train with?

A. The training DVD that I did (Remote Collar Training for the Pet Owner) teaches people how and when to change the levels of stimulation. With that said almost all training is done at a level that is very, very low. We look for a level that only causes the dog's eyes to blink when the stimulation is applied. If a dog verbalizes (yelps) the collar setting is way too high. Levels of stimulation will also vary according to the distractions a dog is faced with and the level of drive the dog is working in. Many times during training a dog must be worked at a higher level of stimulation when it is faced with higher levels of distraction. Learning how to do this is one of the goals of the dog trainer. It's covered in detail in my DVD.

The remote collar is the most effective dog training tool that has been developed in the past 100 years. Our low level stimulation training is 100 times more humane and more effective than using "CHOKE COLLAR or PRONG COLLAR." In fact our remote collar training program eliminates the need for these other training tools. In our home we start our 16 to 20 week old puppies on our remote collar program. The levels of stimulation used in our training program are often times not even felt by many humans.
