[QUOTE=Evan;1131476]That's exactly right. We shape the character of each command when we begin formal Basics through a process of formalization. That is done not only with tools like the heeling stick, but by applying pressure while requiring specifics; sitting instantly, sitting squarely, and remaining in a sitting position until released or commanded to do something else. That is true of all fundamental commands. All of that should be sharp before you begin using the e-collar. This is why you commonly see the advice to follow a proven program and/or to work with a pro. Where do you live?
Thanks for the advice. I live in minnesota
