I imagine people would want to know more about your credentials and training methods before engaging you. Could you elaborate?
His e collar reciever has lights on it is why, you've totally misunderstood the reason. That was why I said night time use or an e-collar sleeve.Having watched your video where you tied your own dog to a tree and baited him with a ball, without protective clothing, I would hesitate to let you anywhere near my dogs, sorry.
Especially as you’re training your dog for “protection” but don’t seem to know the difference between the different types of training techniques;

And even more especially when in another thread, you mention looking for a collar that can protect your dog’s neck from coyotes and other predators, and an e-collar sleeve;

Which, by the way, I’ve had to look up. I thought using e-collars was depressing enough. But to disguise the use of them.
Sorry, but you’re definitely not someone I’d currently want near my dogs.
Just my personal opinion.
but sometimes need a reminder of what he's doing or that he's too close to the road,
We find a leash or long line very successful for both of these issues, without having to use an e-collar.when pets get lost they dont come back
People are going to look at how you handle and train your own dog, and if you have to tie him to a tree to teach a bark on command, and to get him to pull or resist leash pressure (which is the opposite of what most people teach - and for good reason), then people are going to ask why.His e collar reciever has lights on it is why, you've totally misunderstood the reason.

Once again this post is specifically for teaching puppies basic things, using treats and praise only. Regardless, I can only respect the decision to disagree with my choices.
Although I will add that I purely stick with the vibrate and sound function of the collar anyway! He's well trained but sometimes need a reminder of what he's doing or that he's too close to the road, 100% harmless. And yes we live with wildlife and when pets get lost they dont come back. we've got 60lbs coyotes and at times don't walk outside without a gun, I don't see an issue with wanting my dog neck to not get severely injured.
As for the video, it's totally normal to practise that, to build confidence in dogs of such trade is one reason. It's used in several training pieces for different reasons from teaching them to bark consistantly on command, to develop an emotional drive when working, to teach lunging on command in a safe manner so he don't backflip in a much more unforgiving situation, to create focus on the task, and so on. My dog actually likes more challenging games Infact he initiates that type game while outside and loves being on leash.
I'm at a loss of which technique you're referring to, and why I need a bite sleeve while I'm not doing bite work?
Just trying to understand the issues at hand, thanks.
This is essential - when I am seeking out a dog trainer, I am not looking for someone to train my dog, I am looking for someone with the knowledge, skills and real life experience that can help me understand my dog, and how to work and problem solve with them.I imagine people would want to know more about your credentials and training methods before engaging you.
