Eric talks about dog owners basic use methods;
- As a low level negative reinforcement (or pressure and release)
- Using it as a positive reinforcement (at a comfortable level)
We’ll talk about how it can be an incredibly good or bad tool to use depending on the type you use, and your understanding about the psychological approach that you take when training your dog with it. Imagine a dog’s response when you get certain things out and the positive response you receive. When you bring out the remote training collar, what association do you imagine the dog having? After listening to this podcast, it won’t surprise you to know that dogs (trained properly) have a positive response to an e-collar!
Eric will talk about his philosophy about when the collar is applied during a real life training session and why that is. We talk a bit about each of our philosophies and the importance of that timing.
