How to safely use the E Collar is a question that is asked consistently. In this video Thomas explains the main theory behind dog training with an E collar. You will learn why the E collar is not a “shock” collar and the differences between the two devices. When applied properly the E collar is an essential tool for off leash training. Thomas explains how and when to use the E Collar and create the proper association between your dog and the E Collar. Any tool can be used improperly however, it is the operator at fault when this occurs. Once you learn how to safely use the E Collar in your dog training sessions the results will speak for themselves.

    My GSD has a bomb proof recall, but I will always fit him with an E collar when off-leash; because you just never know. I have invested countless hours and dollars into my dog, and I love him like he's my child. Great video, there's much ignorance out there.

    Wow great way to explain this! I used to think it was cruel to use these, but it was just because I didn't know the proper way to do it. I just bought one but haven't started training my dog yet. I have a 1 year old German Shepherd/Husky mix and she LOVES to run. She listens to me most of the time, even when she is after something, but occasionally she gets to caught up in chasing an animal that she tunes me out. She was gone for 2 hours one day and that's when I decided it was time to train her with an e collar. It looks like it is best to begin with training her on the leash until she associates the stimulation with a command.

    I have never used an e collar before and wow the results are instant. I have a new german shepherd puppy that was starting to see my little dog as prey when running outside. She was getting too aggressive with her and no amount of training would stop her. Plus the other dogs thought I was correcting them so everyone was not having fun. I tried it on myself first to know what she was feeling. I have it set to 17 which feels like a tingle (she is pretty sensitive). She stopped immediately I only used it maybe 4 times before she got the message. This thing is great and everyone is happy on our walks. It even stopped her from eating poop, which was driving me crazy. I highly recommend.

    Hi Tom.. can u do a video on barking.. specifically in the Crate pls. We just got a 1 yr old terrier mix rescue.. she does not stop barking. We ignore her and she'll stop only when we leave the room. It's very frustrating. What are the correct steps in handling this? Don't know if this is the correct place to write this. Just discovered your channel and I'm hooked. Wish u were in Miami.

    I took my dog to a trainer and he punished my dog using the E-collar. Automatically dropped him off the class and started training him myself. My dog now sees the collar as a negative thing. How do I transfer the e-collar from being a negative thing to being a positive thing for him?

    This is what people need to hear. There's a right way and a wrong way to do things. Buy the best products and learn from the best. But, sadly there's ignorant people abusing a good tool. That's all an E-collar is, a tool. Well spoken sir

    There is no doubt about that fact that dogs learn through associative learning. When Rover sees his leash he is likely to get excited, when he hears you touching his bag of food he may start drooling, when he sees you grab the towel he may run to hide if he is scared of baths. In the same way, your dog may associate the delivery of shock with some other stimuli. There is some realistic danger for an unwanted association being made between the shock and some other coincidental stimuli, according to The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Additionally, there are risks that a dog may develop intense fear and avoidance of the location where inappropriate levels of shock were delivered.

    thank you for this video tom. my german shepherd and I just started using a dogtra 1900s and it’s a well made piece of equipment. sure brought a ton of fun back into what we’re able to do together. your statement about how well dogs respond on the 3-5 setting is so true… when we can’t even feel a thing. the man!

    An e-collar is NOT a 'shock collar' and I had one in the early 1990s . The Innotek collar had 1 button on the control, a short antenna, and dipswitches inside the collar to set the stimulation. It was not at all like an 'e-collar' of today and an e-collar is NOT used to punish or shock a dog. That is ignorance of unschooled people. This is 2018 now and a person who says 'shock collar' shows himself to be ignorant.

    Really well explained Tom. My 18 month old BC would be dead if I hadn't e collar conditioned her. She had a fear response to traffic and would lunge at every passing car, chase industrial lawn mowers and lorries etc. Now on very low levels she just looks at me. Usually I only need to page her. Occasionally I have to use a nick but she can be off leash and obey all commands just with a no. I agree the cheap ones should be avoided at all costs. Zed also has Pica which the e collar stopped. Such a shame that e collars are misused by some trainers. Now layering it into her work on even lower levels like a 1 or 2 🙂
    Love your open mind. Keep it coming . Thanks 🙂

    Love those things. My dog has a lot more freedom because of it. Rarely even press a button now.
