Working Dog Training Collars / Mid Range
The e-collar or shock collar is an invaluable tool when using correctly. It generally is a short term tool to help the dog understand what you want by voice command. Once the correct behaviours are learned, the e-collar can be reserved for times when greater control is needed.
They are a great aid in training your paddock or field dog and there is no one-size collar fits all approach when it comes to which product is better. Even when used on VERY low stimulation you can get great results. You are still best to tailor the training to suit different dogs.
One of the biggest problems of training a dog not correcting the dog in time. When the dog runs off, by the time you get hold of it, it is too late for telling the dog what has he done wrong. The remote training collar can correct the dog by just push a button very quickly. You should never correct a dog when you are angry. Patience is key in dog training. Use a balanced approach when using a dog training collar, don’t over-correct and don’t under correct.
There are a variety of products to choose from that you can use for your training and these include the entry level working dog remote trainers: Dogtra IQ plus, advance working dog training system with new technologies: Garmin Delta/Delta Sport xc, easy to use electric dog trainer: Dogtra 200c/202c and the new Slim & lightweight trainer: Dogtra ARC.
