TRIPLE CROWN TIPS
Pairing the heel and come exercises will help your dog to learn that one command often follows another. From this day forward, have your dog come to you without using stimulation. If your dog fails to come, use your Remote Collar the next 3 times you give your dog the Come command, before giving him another opportunity to come without using stimulation. Dog distracted at a distance. Apply stimulation and call dog. Release stimulation button and walk backwards as soon as dog steps towards you.
