LINK Using ecollar properly

Using an ecollar effectively without pain. Ecollar may be a life saving tool between your dog running into traffic or not. I have never actually used one but there are a lot of articles about how to use them.

if someone can't make a true connection with a dog as friends and need a tool to Command, then what's the point of having a dog in the first place!?...
Dog should be your friend not your slave, toy or whatever.

Let's talk about German shepherds as an example. People search for the dog THEY WANT which is often a serious conflict of interest. They want a dog to protect them in the house yet they want that same dog to allow strangers to come in. The difference can be a dog bite or a wet licked face. You cannot have both. Believe me, I have seen most bite cases in our town as an ACO for 5 yrs. Normally a family member disrespects the dogs space and gets bit. But you need to be able to control a West German line working dog. They're smarter than you. They know how to take advantage. You need to be a trainer or work with one to get the behaviors you want over the ones you don't. Watch a video on Schutzhund and see what is expected of these dogs. Recently a girl with young children kept training her shepherd who was already aggressive to work in Schutzhund and he was so over the top aggressive she had to rehome him to a working family.
You can certainly bond with a dominant dog but that bonding you do subtracts from his needing any other bonding in the house. He will ignore them and see them as less a factor in the house than he/she is.
"Are Schutzhund dogs aggressive?
One component of Schutzhund requires dogs to bite, tackle, bark, and growl aggressively at a person—called a helper—who acts as a pretend threat towards their owner.:"
I don't agree with this title at all.

Posted by K9Kohle789I have wondered how many dogs are camera shy because I had a foster pup that I could only get pix of her running away from the camera and hiding behind a tree.
