How it works
Training Methods and What To Expect
We use positive reinforcement methods to teach every command, and an e-collar to reinforce commands once they’re learned and understood. The collars that we use are e-collar technologies brand, which are the most advanced, humane electric collars on the market. They aren’t your traditional shock collar that causes pain to the dog, and the sensation isn’t like what you’d feel with an electric fence or a store-bought training collar. The collars we use are TENS units, like they use in physical therapy to stimulate muscle, therefore the sensation is a muscle twitch. The collars have a range of 100 different levels, and we never increase past the lowest possible number that the dog feels and responds to. The way we use these collars aren’t for punishment by any means, but rather as a way to get the dogs attention even when off leash, the same as a tap on the shoulder. The consistent sensation of the collar allows for a clear line of communication from all members of the household, creating less confusion and frustration between dogs and their humans. The collar will be sent home with your pup, and the cost of the collar is including in the program pricing.
