Eug, have you done any research into Michael Elis's dog training videos? He uses a reward based method for teaching all sorts of dogs..
Swampbilly postedDon't forget that OC governs the use of the e-collar too, and every other training aid or method; but you're right, the more you learn about OC the better will be your powers of observation and analysis. However to answer your other question, even when I had the lawful opportunity to use an e collar I didn't take it. I was travelling a road from being an old time hard handed trainer towards something better and didn't perceive the collar as an advancement for me.Quote:
