E-Collar Use Should be Obvious, Shouldn't It?

The idea of using e-stim as a prompt rather than as just a follow up for non-compliance is still hard for some to wrap their thinking around.

I used to get offended when people made snide comments about my preference to train with a remote collar. Comments about cruelty, punishment, undue stress and similar statements that expressed a desire to ban this training equipment raised my blood pressure. I felt that people were being presumptive about my training techniques and my knowledge of training dogs in general.

Then I realized the comments WERE presumptive. In fact, those judgments of my work were only based on speculation of what I did, rather than any personal firsthand knowledge. Once it sank in that the statements were nothing more than conjecture based on emotional hypotheticals, well, then I got over my bruised feelings and carried on with little regard for the naysayers.

In fact, there were times I got a bit brazen, challenging people to watch my dogs training sessions to see if they could actually support their own condemning statements. Could they prove to me that I was indeed causing my dog's pain or harming their level of physical and psychological well-being?

The interesting outcome of those challenges was that people began to ask questions, the most frequent being "Have you pushed the button yet?"

The idea of using e-stim as a prompt rather than as just a follow up for non-compliance is still hard for some to wrap their thinking around, but at least I'm doing my part to put to rest the image of scared, anxious dogs that are worried about being "shocked".

Take a look. See if you can tell when I'm pushing the button?
