Do you think it is a good idea to use an e-collar to house train a dog?
One of our dogs is dominant aggressive and last year fought with our 10 year old GSD and caused her death. Would proper use of the electric collar resolve this?

Do you feel that my training warrants the use of this collar? Am I on the right page?
My dog does fine when he is wearing an electric collar, but when I take it off he does not respond the same way. What did I did wrong or how can I improve the use of the collar?
My dog killed one of our chickens today. Is it likely that we will be able to teach him to respect the chickens again? What do you think we should do?
I purchased a collar, charged it and put it on my dog and it didn't seem to work. The dog did not respond at all to it. I don't know how to test it. Any suggestions?
I want to train my high-drive GSD for S&R. Would buy the Dogtra 280NCP work for my needs?
