You should also learn how the training collar works. It is important that you test it before the first use with your dog.
Learn to put it on correctly so that it does not cause any discomfort.
The necklace should fit comfortably at the top of the neck, near the ears. The receiver must be well placed.
It should be snug enough so that it doesn’t cause you pain, but at the same time it doesn’t move in any direction. You have to be able to put a finger under the collar
Make sure the size is correct
Weather you’ve French Bulldogs, Common Anatolian Shepherd or teacup puppy, the best size for the necklace is one that fits naturally. Don’t buy one that is too tight, but don’t buy one that is too loose either. If it is very tight it will be very difficult to put it on and take it off. If it is too loose it could slip when the dog lowers its head or not work the right way.
Also take into account the volume of its neck when the dog has long hair, not only when it is shaved or cut with a dog clipper.
Please read the instructions before using the necklace
In the instruction manual you will find all the safety information and how to use it.
You will also find how to put it on and take it off the dog. If you are still not sure, seek advice.
Associate the corrections to the orders one by one
Before you start correcting a new behavior, make sure the dog has associated the previous command with the corresponding correction. This way you will avoid stressing the dog.
By putting the collar on your dog, you convey to him that he has to pay attention to you. It has to be used as a reminder or to give you information.
Don’t leave the dog alone trying to figure out how the collar works
The collar is my dog training collar device and should be used as such. Every time you want to correct a behavior say a first NO and press the acoustic mode at the same time.
If the behavior persists, say NO! A little stronger and use another training mode, for example vibration or stimulation.
If the behavior persists, say NO!! Much stronger and activate the training mode you used previously increasing the intensity of the effect a little.
Dogs are very intelligent animals and they will quickly learn that sound means NO and vibration or stimulation means NO!! In such a way that the only way you will have to stop this uncomfortable situation is by obeying.
Reward the dog when it executes the commands correctly
If every time you activate the collar the dog only receives signals that you are punishing him quickly, it will cause discomfort and insecurity and he will stop obeying.
Reward him too! Every time you execute a command and the dog obeys, reward him and encourage him to continue doing well.
In this way the dog will learn that what he is doing is right and will not feel any fear when a correction in his behavior is necessary.
Do not abuse the necklace
Try to use it only when necessary. The best thing here is to use common sense.
Make sure of the number of hours the dog can wear it. Do not use it on all walks or when the dog is unattended.
Your dog should only wear the collar during training sessions.
Use it only when you are trying to perform commands to correct behavior.
Never activate it when the dog is playing. Remember that the collar is used to correct behavior and you don’t want your dog to associate playing with bad behavior.
