How to Use an Electronic Dog Training Collar

February 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 186

Most electronic dog training collars have numerous stimulation settings. Some also use a tone, beep or voice recording to get the dogs attention. You need to choose the proper setting that best suits your dog. A large dog will usually require a higher setting than a small dog.

To find the proper intensity setting for your dog start at the lowest level first. If this setting does not get their attention go up another level and so on. If the dog lets out a yelp than the level is too high. Back down at least one level. Training your dog should be a good experience for both you and them.

When beginning the training process it is a good idea to start out using a standard training collar and leash. When you give a command like sit or stay put tension on the collar by pulling back. Immediately after the dog obeys release the tension and praise them for doing well. Now add the electronic training collar and follow the same steps. At the same time you give the command and pull back on the leash push the button on the transmitter. Release when your dog obeys. After doing this once or twice remove the standard training collar and leash and repeat the command using just the Electronic Training Collar.

You can use these same guidelines when training your dog to learn just about any command that you want. Just remember to show them plenty of love and affection every time they obey. In doing this the training will be more fun for them and they won't mind wearing the electronic training collar.

When choosing a dog collar it is always a good idea to pick one that is from a reputable company get what you pay for as far as quality goes, stick with brand names and products with good reviews. Many websites have reviews that you can read pick only collars that have 4 star ratings or more to ensure you get a great product.
