Have you heard that dogs learn quicker with an electronic training collar?
Tri-Tronics, Innotek, PetSafe and other manufacturers have made this claim over the years.
Building the bond with your dog comes first and there is no getting around basic training. You need to get to know your dog, what does he like? What natural instincts does he have?
Would an electronic collar help your dog learn quicker? If your goal is giving your dog all the opportunities and training to reach the best of his ability, then yes an e-collar will help your dog learn faster and easier. Your focus and timing are enhanced for better interaction with the dogs behavior when using an e-collar. No longer are these devises designed to cause an association of discomfort with the particular behavior. E-collars have non-stimulation options such as a tone or vibration. The goal is to keep your dog focused on the command, whistle, hand signal etc. and keep him safe from hazardous situations.
Keep the enthusiasm going in your dog. If something is not working, revise your tactics. Old dogs can learn new tricks! Happy Dog Training.
