E-Collar and Remote Control Collar Training
Leonard has been using remote control collars for more than 30 years. He spent time at the Dobbs Training Center with Jim and Phyllis Dobbs and Brian Mowry, who helped design the Tri-Tronics and Dogtra collars. It was a great opportunity for which he is grateful as he gained tremendous understanding of their use.
Through the years, he has found the e-collar a very versatile tool to have in your bag when training dogs. Combining the e-collar with his more traditional training methods, Leonard is able see positive results rather quickly and the majority of the time the collar is used at low levels.
His focus is on working with the temperament and pace of each dog. He accomplishes this by reading the dog while also maintaining a true companion relationship. The goal is to put the least amount of stress on the dog, while at the same time let the dog be a dog that makes good decisions.
There is not one “best” way to train your dog, the e-collar is an effective option that works well in certain circumstances and with certain dogs.
The end goal is a happy well behaved dog.
