Dog training is a growing industry, numerous advertising announce most training as new age or motivational. Not one to put good intentions down, dog training is essential to a dog. The difficulty is in knowing which training style or philosophy suits a dog, no matter its breed or temperament.
Any dog trainer will tell you that pet dogs have been trained by its mother, and that being part of a human pack it is expected that pet owners continue where the mother dog left off. By observation, a mother dog uses movement, vocalization and cadence in correcting misbehaving pups with no qualms or worry that the correction may not sit well with the pups. It is with their mother that pups learn with corrections. Have an opportunity to observe a dog mother and her pups, it can be seen that she follows a code of behavior that she teaches the pups through nips, growls, biting and nudging. Every misbehavior is a teaching opportunity for a dog mother, which is the style we follow.
With no ability to growl convincingly for a pet dog, we pet ‘parents’ have our own form of correction which equals a mother dogs style. Dog training collars are a way of teaching pet dogs by correction. Just like a mother dog’s fast and timed corrections, the dog training collar works with the same results. Training your pet dog with a collar needs proper preparation and research on training mechanics. Going to a professional pet trainer costs a lot and defeats the purpose of your pet getting commands from you. Do go to a pro dog trainer so you can be taught how to teach your pet dog.
Using a dog training collar would require you to spend and allocate time for your pet -one on one. Training is an activity for both a pet ‘parent’ and pet to form a bond with respect as its foundation. Proper teaching with training collars develops your position as pack leader and assures your pet dog that you are firm and consistent. Knowing its pack leader is strong makes pet dogs confident and receptive to any form of correction.
Dog training collars, when used properly teach your pet dog lessons it shall remember forever. The training collar is a correcting device, when used on hunting dogs produce mild mannered pets, disciplined gundogs and intelligent home pets.
