Hi, I am new I did not know here such post allow or not bcz I can't see forum rules and regulations. I want share some good info for all of you mostly for peoples of Raleigh, NC.

Having a pet is undoubtedly a joy, but it is also a big responsibility. Off-Leash K9 Training, LLC is starting a new canine obedience training program in Raleigh, NC for those who have rescued or adopted stray and shelter dogs. Off-Leash has always encouraged pet adoptions and these sessions will assist owners with a pet’s adjustment period and in turn, hopefully lead to more successful, permanent adoptions.

She provides an E-collar for her clients in all programmes.

 

I wonder why the dogs don't seem very eager? She's got experience training police dogs, and those are amped up to the max for work. Just a bit odd that the dogs she's videod with aren't very quick to respond.

If the collar is being used properly then the dog won't be fearful. I've never heard of the trainer, but if she's been actively involved in training police dogs then she'll have been taught how to use the collar correctly.

Just strikes me as a bit odd that the dogs aren't quicker to respond.

I watched this and to me it just seems like it's short cutting training this is not positive reinforcement training it's punishment or negative reinforcement, maybe with an unruly deaf dog a bit of collar training might be warranted not sure but a dog that can hear can be trained without electric interference. And not all police dog trainers are good at what they do and not all are using approved methods to train dogs......I just didn't like the e collar work......I think it takes the time and effort out of the equation, people need to invest the time and effort into their dogs not expect some electric contraption to do it for them and providing their owners with these collars is in my opinion irresponsible cause it takes ALOT of training with e collars to utilize them properly and I am sure the owners get minimal if any training and they would have to know the trigger points of dog body language etc. to use them properly and that would take alot more time than what I am sure is given

Just my opinion but I don't believe in negative reinforcement except in extreme cases.
