    Default Puppy training

    I have a 5 m.o. chocolate female who is picking up commands quickly. Sit, heal, here, give and stays at heal/sit till sent. Even did a few ugly hand thrown land doubles.
    My question is when is to young to start in on e-collar training. She isn't my first dog so I have the basics of using an e-collar.
    What say?

    Keep the intensity low on a dog that young and you can start. No way I'd go above a 2 on a dogtra for collar conditioning on a dog that young. Depends on the dog. Some are ready early and some not till later.
