TRIPLE CROWN TIPS
From this day forward, have your dog sit without using stimulation. If your dog fails to sit, use your Remote Collar the next 3 times you give your dog the Sit command, before giving him another opportunity to sit without using stimulation. When reinforcing the sit command with your Remote Collar, you may find your dog sitting, as soon as he feels the sensation from the collar. When this happens, it is not necessary to return to him. Simply praise calmly from a distance, to let him know he has made the right choice. Remember to IMMEDIATELY release the stimulation button as soon as he sits. Remember to maintain a loose leash and to give your dog a lot of praise when he is in the correct heel position. Press stimulation button and give heel command for forging ahead. Make 180 degree right turn. Release stimulation button when dog is in correct position. Praise and reward.
