    You, my friend, are a visionary!

    I need to catch up with you my man!

    Training with an e-collar is something I wish I'd done several dogs ago. I am enjoying dog training more now, than I did in my first obedience class, in the late 1970's under the late-great, Gertrude Sullivan of Pittsburgh, PA obedience training fame.

    - need to catch up!

    Chris-

    "Visionary" is not what everyone calls me! Thanks though.

    I started firmly in the box as you know but think that outside the box is a place I'm comfortable exploring. It's not for everyone.

    Lets catch up early next week if you have the time.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I believe initial introduction 'pinch to open' FF doctrine is as progressive as shooting a dog with bird shot to get it to sit on a whistle. AS
