What happens when you collar condition your dog to the command "here" and he still wont come using continuous stimulation. What I am doing is, first wrapping my check cord around a stake to keep my dog in place without having to say sit and then walk 15 ft. or so away. However, when i say "here" and use the continuous stim he just looks at me like he has no idea what I am saying and then after a few seconds he does end up coming to me, but just not as fast as he usually does without the collar. I am 100% without a doubt positive he knows what "here" means. He is 6 months old and obeys all basic commands, I just believe he is confused by the stimulation. I have never had to use a lead to make him come when i would tell him to sit and then walk away and command here. So i figured i didnt need to use one now. However, I feel like I am doing something terribly wrong and it doesnt help the fact that this is my first time to use an e-collar and am scared to death now of ruining my dog by using one. Any help would be much appreciated.
