How good are the remote dog collars, training collars???? I have a boxer that I would love to turn loose to run but he has a listening problem sometimes, and he jumps on people (typical boxer , you meet the front feet first flying like a wild man)… I want to get him a control collar (like an invisible fence collar but with a remote control) do they really work???? And if so what brand is the best?
He is 11month, and I do let him off the lead (runs with my senior dog she listens) and they stick together real well. And this is just to make things easier on getting him to listen better. He gets to having to much fun when its time to go home. He is really smart. I respect all the answers that come on here. Thanks
Amber , your man and kids are goofs…lmao
Training collars work on most dogs. They should not be used to teach the dog something new but to enforce the commands he already knows. Start with the correction set as low as it goes. If the dog doesn’t respond to that, turn it up in small increments. The best brand made is Tri Tronics. Other good brands are DT Systems and Dogtra. Brands to avoid are Radio systems, Petsafe and Innotech. You get what you pay for.
My remote training collar suddenly does not work?
It’s a spray collar, not a shock collar. Petsafe remote spray trainer, if it needs to be exact. I got it new just yesterday and tested it. Turned it on, filled it, charged it, went through all of the functions(not on my dog or myself, just as is)it worked fine for everything. But today I went to use it and the spray feature stopped working. It chirps the negative and positive tones and lights up, but when I try the spray(no matter what setting, there’s 4 “levels”)it only clicks. It’s supposed to flash a light to tell you it’s working and it does do that but no spray comes out. I’ve charged it AGAIN, reset it, refilled it, and nothing. I haven’t dropped it or got it wet, scratched it, kept it somewhere too cold/hot, or clogged it with anything.
Anyone out therez happen to know what could be wrong?
I told you they were useless….
Are there any people in Kentucky training with remote collars?
I’d love to find some people in Louisville interested in training and competing in obedience trials or other dog sports using electronic collars specifically or anyone who wants to train their own dog and not fork over all the money for training classes or lessons. To form a group of friends to help each other train and provide support at obedience, agility , schutzhund, tracking trials! can email email@example.com to talk if wanted
NOT USED FOR THESE THINGS? Perhaps I should have mentioned that I have been training for a decade and have titled a dog I raised from a puppy to her CDX,BH, Sch1, WH, OB2, CGC. And took high in trial for teh sch1 and many first, seconds, thirds and a high in match at the akc events
Using an E-collar is not evil or cruel. My dogs are happy workers and I am merely looking for like minded people to meet at parks or parking lots to train in various locations and provide a cheering section at shows
If you care to learn more about incorporation of the remote collar in dogsports I suggest you check out www.sitmeanssit.com and www.nolimitations.com Also I have personally seen Tom Rose use e-collars on his malinois, literally hundreds of sch trainers use them including Joanne Plumb
I know there is a group in Lexington that competes in AKC obediencea nd Schutzhund called Canine Resorts or something. You might try looking them up.. I know they win alot at trials but they probably charge to train with them. They utilitize remote collars in all their training.
Remote collar training?
I have a year and a half old labrador retriever and am really struggling with recall. It is so important to me for her to listen when I say come because I hate to keep her on a leash just go to out to the bathroom (we have a large backyard), but we also have a road somewhat close to the yard. Also, I want her to be able to come right away if she were to get out of the house and run, which has happened. I have used a dog whistle, positive reinforcement with treats (I’ve used hot dogs, pepperoni, store bought treats), and although pepperoni works best, she still has her moments where she wanders and won’t listen. Also, almost every time she goes into the neighbor’s yard, which they hate.
I’m not sure how to correct this. I can’t run out there fast enough to stop her from going into their yard. I was thinking about possibly using a remote collar. I think all she would need is a vibrating collar. What do you think? Do you have any other suggestions? Are there any remote collars that anyone can suggest?
Thanks for your time!
I think that she is an adolescent dog who shouldn’t be trusted off-leash yet. Maybe when she is mature at 3, but not now.
I also think that punishment for not coming is the WORST way to teach a recall. You need to teach her to want to come to you, regardless of what else may have her attention – coming to you must be the best, most rewarding, most exciting thing ever.
And, what if someone is walking their dog at the same time you correct her with the collar? What if the neighbor’s grandkids are visiting? It has certainly happened that a dog doesn’t get the intended message when punished and develops a fearful or aggressive reaction to something that was present (dog, kids, etc.) at the time of the correction.
So, continue to practice (a lot!) using pepperoni, a game of fetch, or anything else she loves. When she comes to you, smile, clap your hands, and give her five or six treats. Then practice again.
Anybody know of a Remote + Auto No Bark collar?
First of all, if you don’t believe in bark collars that is fine, just don’t answer. And yes, I know about the citronella ones but we can’t use it any more because my wife is super allergic. Also, yes we have and are taking the time to train our dog but he has some pretty bad separation anxiety. He barks the second we leave until we get home. We will only use the collar while we are gone or doing training exercises with him in the yard.
Now with that said; we are looking around trying to find a bark collar similar to the “Innotek Automatic No-Bark Dog Collar, BC-50B” but with a remote training option as well. The BC-50B is pretty cool because the stimulation level varies. If he barks once then just a buzz, no shock. Bark again, little shock. Bark again, a little more shock and so on and so forth.
So if you know of something like this that has a remote function as well your input would be GREATLY appreciated!
Im not aware of any collar that has the automatic “no bark” and a remote function.. You’d need 2 separate collars
FYI, they do make collars that use citrus scent instead of citronella.
