We love our dogs and it's extremely important for us to keep them a lovable happy Pet. These are tips for proper use and training to make the training collar as effective as possible and to keep our pets happy. Electronic remote training collars are excellent tools for reinforcing verbal commands like "Sit", "Stay", "Down" or "Come." Make sure your pet understands these commands before using the collar. These collars will also control nuisance or aggressive behaviors.
Before you start the training, charge the collar and learn how the transmitter works. Become familiar with all the buttons and how to make changes and adjustments. This will make the training part easier when started.
It is important to make the collar fit properly. If it is too loose the probes will not make the proper contact. The collar comes with 2 different sets of probes, short and long. The longer ones are for dogs that have long hair. The probes need to touch the dog's skin to stimulate properly, if not, the dog may not feel the stimulation and the collar will not be effective.
The collar has 3 different training modes and 100 levels of intensity. Whichever mode you choose, make sure you start at a lower level than a higher one. Test your dog to see how he/she responds to the stimulation. You want to see a slight reaction by your dog, not a yelp. If your dog is not responding then slowly increase the stimulation level until your dog responds properly and obeys the stimulation.
Call out a command, if your dog doesn't obey immediately correct he/she by pressing the stimulation button. We think it is best not to hold the button until the dog obeys, a shorter, quicker duration of stimulation is best. Keep repeating until your dog obeys and be sure to reward their correct behavior. It could be a pat on the back, verbal praise or a treat.
To correct nuisance or aggressive behavior (barking, chasing, jumping, chewing, etc) when your dog performs the behavior immediately press the stimulation button. Your dog will soon learn that their behavior can cause an unwanted stimulation. Over time that correction will occur even when you are not there.
It is important that the dog does not associate that the stimulation is from you or the transmitter. It's better for your dog to think that the stimulation is connected to the unwanted behavior instead. Try to discreetly use the transmitter and do not make it obvious that the stimulation is from you. The training results will be more effective and we don't want our dogs to think that their unpleasant feeling is from their dear owner.
Electronic remote training is a safe, effective way to get positive results from training your dog. A better behaved pet will strengthen your bond and provide a more positive relationship. This training tool will keep our relationships with our dogs a SMILEY one.
