We use them for the same reasons we use prong collars. However, E-Collars are even better because the skill to use them is the most easily transferable to the owner. Not only are E-Collars the most effective, most reliable, most humane, and transformational training tool available today, they empower owners to have a completely off-leash trained dog with remote communication up to 1/2 a mile away. This means more opportunity to include your dog in your life and more freedom for you and your dog.
When the E-collar is introduced properly it becomes an amazing communication and educational tool between you and your dog. The idea we have to get out of our head is that we are shocking or zapping the dog. It’s not like a static shock from a door knob or touching an electric cattle fence. That’s not at all the sensation you feel from the E-Collar we use. The Educator E-collar uses localized medical grade stimulation exactly like a TENS unit that is used on human beings world wide for physical therapy. On top of that, most people can’t even feel the stimulation levels we use to effectively communicate with dogs.
We also need to understand that the stimulation from the collar does not magically do anything itself. We still need to teach our dog what the tickle means, how we want our dog to respond to it, and reward our dog for making correct choices. The result is a level of connectivity and communication that utterly transforms the relationships of people and dogs so they can have their best lives together. Our techniques empower you to include your dog in your life with ease and fun through proper use of the very best tools available today.
