I'm considering buying an e-collar to resolve some training issues that have crept up. I'm aware that I need to use a whole CC regimen but fortunately my training buddies are willing to help me out.
This is my first dog. I only plan on having one dog at time. Money is really not an issue but I don't want waste money on needless features.
Those of you that recognize my name and remember some of my past posts will see this is a pretty big change of direction for me and my preferred methodology but I'm trying my best to read my dog and provide what he needs. I think for now, for me and him, an e-collar is the best way to go.
I'm still a little leary of some of the negative reinforcement used in collar training but I'm trying to keep an open mind. For now, I see me using the collar for mostly remote application of positive punishment.
