Basic Obedience Ecollar Training
Robin MacFarlane

Steve Snell of Gun Dog Supply & Robin MacFarlane cover:

HOW OFTEN TO TRAIN
10-15 minute sessions, one or two times a day.

FRUSTRATED OWNERS / PROBLEM SOLVING
Most behavior problems are dogs being under-exercised
Once you teach come when called, you can really exercise the dog when you take the leash off
A tired dog is a good dog
Add just a little bit of structure around the house, most of the problems go away

START USING ECOLLARS ON DAY 1
Instead of reinforcing known commands, Robin starts using the ecollar on day 1

PUSH THE BUTTON A LOT
Low pressure
Multiple pulses
Lots of repetition

ECOLLAR CONDITIONING
First concept: when you feel sensation, move to handler
Teach 3-actions: Move toward you, move away from you, and stop/be stationary

HOW TO PUT COLLAR ON THE DOG
Pretty snug to make sure contact points are on neck

INTRODUCING ECOLLAR TO YOUR DOG
Watch for subtle signs: a momentary pause in behavior

WHAT'S THE RIGHT LEVEL?
JUST RIGHT tm is whatever your dog responds to
If dog is ignoring you, your level is too low
If dog is over-reacting or has a repeated startle response, it's too high

GETTING STARTED ON THE TRAINING
First association is "move toward the handler"
Leash / long line -- handler move away from dog

WHEN SHOULD MY DOG WEAR THE ECOLLAR?
Whenever you're interacting with the dog
Not when sleeping or at work, but most of the time.
