Do you have an e-collar for your dog but you've been afraid to use it? Stop worrying and start training! This 5-disc set will take you step-by-step through the process, from starting the training and finding a level up and through working around distractions and being ready to go off-leash!
Three dogs of varying personalities were adopted from a shelter environment and trained daily over the course of 3-weeks. This DVD series captures the real-time footage starting from day one of introducing the e-collar and progresses to the point of off-leash control and working around real world distractions. Robin takes you step-by-step through the process of laying a foundation, solving common problems, working through distractions and graduating to off-leash freedom. The systematic approach and detailed instruction is designed specifically with the novice e-collar user in mind, but even experienced trainers will find a gem or two to add to their training toolbox!
Each of the dogs in this video series, Grace, Brandi and Bonnie, started training within 72 hours of being adopted from a shelter environment. What you will see are real-time training sessions, not special editing or previously trained dogs. Viewers will be watching dogs with different temperaments being worked through challenges toward the goal of off-leash control and a greatly improved relationship with their handler.
This video series takes a systematic approach to e-collar use from introduction to off-leash control. Robin's e-collar instructional materials are clear, concise and never sacrifice the physical or emotional well-being of the dog. With this training, your dog will be calmer, more controlled AND be able to experience the joys of off-leash freedom!

MacFarlane: E-Collar Training
Making a dog training DVD can be a complicated process. Having the dogs that you need at the correct level of training when you are ready to shoot the video is the hard part. If you are going to show the actual training, then you need to film the dogs when the training is happening. Most videos don't do this. They film dogs after the training is complete. You end up with a product that shows the trained dog instead of the training process. It's not what the customer wants to see and it does not give a true picture of the process, warts and all.
We did not want to do that with this project. We wanted several dogs that had zero training so we could show you how fast you could take them through the process, from the introduction of the e-collar to off-leash control in real-time. Robin's idea was to take three dogs from shelter backgrounds and put manners on them as fast as possible. She also wanted to film the entire process. Grace, Brandi and Bonnie each came with their own particular issues as you will see in the early sessions. For the next three weeks, we filmed the entire training process of each dog's training, and show you every step along the way.
There are many ways to train dogs and many different ways to use the remote training collar. Robin's training methods are easy to understand for the dog and the trainer.
This is a well done series and made me much more comfortable using the E-Collar for Training. With its proper use dogs and man can be constant companions and team mates.
Well done progressive series. I am no longer scared to use tthe his tool to get the results i want. I have a GSP who now is my partner both on and off the fields.
I did not want it to end. I was enjoying it so much and learning a lot.
Clear and Well Done

This should be a mandatory purchase with the purchase of an e-collar. Clear and concise. Just about everything you need to know to get started is presented. I watched all of the topics straight through twice before I took the e-collar(s) out fo the box. The only issue I have is the actual DVDs had issues in the player (PS4) but luckily I purchased the streaming version as well. An odd suggestion I have to add another "volume" is how to use the e-collar to help form wanted behavior with two sibling dogs and their unique circumstances (domination, playing vs rough-housing, separation anxiety, etc.).
Covers many potential circumstances you might face
Loved the on-screen visuals that showed when pressure was being applied
DVDs skipped or weren't able to play a number of topics

I live near Dubuque, where Robin McFarlane is located, and met with her for about half an hour soon after adopting a 5-month-old cockapoo (my first dog as an adult). Everything that I had read about cockapoos suggested "no harsh training," but I had heard good things about That's My Dog (her training facility) from other dog owners and wanted my dog to be off-leash, and so decided to learn more about her approach. These videos were much less expensive than private lessons and so I bought them in case I needed them. I started out with just using a tone collar and my dog (who has separation anxiety and basically adores me) was pretty responsive to just that for a long time, as long as I consistently rewarded him with treats. When he got close to 18 months, though, he entered a disobedient phase where he started to think that he could just run up and play with any other dog that he saw (once running across a street), and then would just suffer the consequences of my being unhappy later. So I finally watched all these videos and then used the shock stimulus at the lowest level that he would respond to (between 8-12 on the smallest Educator collar), as Robin suggested in the videos, continuing to use many more treats and praise than shocks. After just a couple of hours, he became more obedient than ever, and seemed to love me even more (probably because I was no longer scolding him for misbehaving), and did not seem unhappy at all. Since then, he has been basically totally responsive to me when I have called him (via tone or voice), and quicker to sit when I ask, and in general a little more respectful, and just as loving and happy, with my almost never needing to use the shock function again. I don't think that I would have been nearly as effective or confident at using the collar if I hadn't watched this particular video series, which I found to be considerably more helpful than the shorter videos that Robin has put together. So I would highly recommend this purchase to other nervous collar users. Thanks to Gun Dog Supply for producing the series!
