How do I train my dog with a dog training collar?

How do I train my dog with a dog training collar?

There are many places where people can go to learn to use them. It’s best to consult a trainer but often that’s not possible either because of the expense or because there aren’t any in your area that are familiar with “modern use” of the tool. You don’t want to go to someone who uses the tool improperly. One question to ask a trainer that you’re considering is “How do you find the dog’s working level of stim?” The trainer should start at the lowest level that the dog training collar has and slowly turn it up, as he looks for subtle signs that the dog first feels the stim. Another question to ask is, “Do you consider yourself to be a ‘low level’ user or a ‘high level” user?” If he says there’s not such thing as a “low level stim user” avoid him like the plague. Some trainers work at the level where the dog first feels the stim. That’s who you want to train your dog. Other trainers crank the dial up until the dog screams in pain and then they turn it down one level. Avoid people in the second group at all costs!

There are lists on the Internet where you can get advice on the use of the tool. You should also check the Internet for trainers. If the website looks as if the trainer is trying hard to sell you something avoid that trainer. If the website supplies lots of information giving a “how to” approach that has lots of information about the training, rather than about the trainer, that’s probably a good trainer. Don’t be fooled by clever marketing techniques that say something like, “We train more dogs than anyone.” Or, “We sell more dog training collars than anyone else.” If the website talks about numbers avoid that trainer. On the other hand, if it talks about the “quality” of the dogs trained that trainer might deserve your business.
