If you are going to use an ecollar (remote/shock collar), this is required reading. I have and use an ecollar and it is an amazing TOOL. It is not a magic button and you still have to work your dog, but it does make better use of the time you spend training and I have found it teaches a dog things that are hard to teach with out it. Such as the recall! BUT, like any tool, it must be used properly. If you need help, ask the experts, or me (although I am NOT an expert!).
A wonderful training method that teaches dogs that they have to work for everything they get. It increases focus and reduces anxiety in shy dogs. If you are struggling with a dominant dog, this training is priceless!
Teaching your dog to target is a very useful tool that can be a stepping stone to MANY other types of training. It can be used to teach a dog to ring a bell to go outside, turn off a light, shut a door or to improve competition heeling position. And it is easy to do and most important, fun for your dog!
