ECollar - The Electric Collar with Michael Ellis DVD - Part 2

Details

Part 2: Common Applications of the E-collar DVD

This DVD covers the 3 major training categories we use the e-collar for obedience, high arousal activities, and management.  In this DVD you will learn how to take a dog that has been properly conditioned to the collar and in only a few short training sessions achieve the desired results through low level stimulation. 

This DVD assumes that the viewer has watched Part 1. Please review the terminology in Part 1 before watching this DVD.

DVD Outline:

  1. Introduction: What this DVD covers. What advantages does the e-collar give (distance, timing, control of intensity, and impersonal correction). Why an e-collar? NOT the bigger stick!
  2. Obedience: A general note about the use of adversives in OB.
    1. Dog understands what I am asking
    2. Disobedience vs. mistakes
    3. Competing motivators
    4. Superstitious associations
    5. Improving the quality of behavior through the use of pressure
    6. Recall
    7. Heeling / Focus: How to use the collar for looking away and for breaking.
    8. Place Work: Foot targets and bed or mat work.
    9. Stays: Using the collar to punish breaking stays with competing motivators.
    10. Retrieve: Ways to improve retrieve through e-collar work. What situations to use and which to avoid.
    11. Loose Leash Walking: Slip leads and e-collars.
  3. Protection/High Arousal Activities: Special considerations, superstitious associations, higher arousal means higher levels, classically conditioned arousal response to punisher, damage to gripping behavior, aggression.
    1. Recalls: From biting and on the way to biting.
    2. Outs: Do’s and don’ts of using the collar for outs.
    3. Secondary Control: Heeling and contact heeling.
  4. Management: We always try and address the underlying cause before, and during, using  aversives on the symptoms.  i.e. fear, lack of exercise, training, mental stimulation, and proper socialization.
    1. Barking: Sometimes bark collars are necessary.
    2. Counter Surfing, Chewing, Fence Jumping, etc.: Situations in which we want the correction to be impersonal and superstitious associations don’t hurt us.
    3. Dog Issues
    4. Emergency Stop: i.e. car chasing, aggression, etc.
  5. Conclusion: Get help if you are unsure. Just because the collar is easy doesn’t mean it is the right solution for every situation.
