The Ecollar video gives you a great perspective of how to begin and continue using it correctly.
My dog is now 10 months old and although she wears the collar a lot, I do not have to activate it too much. She is not at all afraid of it and when we put it on she knows that we are going to have fun.
I believe using the collar correctly is what makes training her so easy. The video shows you how to do all of this. The dog needs the basic obedience before you use this on her. After that with a little training, it is just a reminder. No yelling needed. This Ecollar video made my training a pleasure. Thanks

A very nice product, and works as advertised. The instructional DVD was very helpful. For training my pup, I had never used a collar such as this. Now, I will never be without it. A superior product that I will always have. Nice job by Steve and Robin!

Excellent advise for the beginner. It made possible the instant use of the collar. My French Brittany is a very independent dog and the Ecollar has provided the 'long distance' leash capable of reinforcing instructions beyond the useful range of the physical leash. That is, he darn well knows when he is off leash.

I really like the simplicity in understanding the instructions. I used it, and it worked very well. My husband wasn't sure about the idea, but now he loves it because it has helped keep our dogs safe from danger because they come quickly when called. It's a great training device, and very little stimulation was required. I appreciate the help in the video!

This is a very helpful video. Even if you understand how dog training works, this video will help you with many small tips and tricks to making training easier. I was very comfortable using the training collar after watching the video prior to putting the collar on my dog.

I like all the features and capabilities. I have an 8-year-old lab and 2 of her pups that are two. The DVD is excellent and this has been my first experience with e collars. Robin's explanations are very good for all of the sessions. I have recommended it to others many times.

I think it would be very easy to misuse an e-collar without this video. I have trained dogs for nearly 40 years and have never used an e-collar. Recently, I tried a very nice Garmin e-collar with this video and can see that it can be used as a gentle reminder to the dog (and should never be used as a punishment). Just a soft stimulus produces results.

Good video and audio quality. Excellent instructions from Robin. She trains humans to train dogs. This is basic stuff, but well worth reviewing each time you start with a new dog or puppy. I'll recommend to others who want to use an e-collar for training.

The Garmin Sport Pro is easy to use and very effective. It is an excellent tool for getting the dog's (particularly a 6 mo. old Lab) attention directed to the handler. One suggestion for the video: Please date/time stamp each segment of e-collar training video. What may appear as a perfectly trained dog within the first 5-10 minutes of using the collar, is likely pieced-together video over a period of weeks or months. The belt loop clip could be shortened in length, eliminating the need to remove the clip (difficult) prior to charging the hand-held remote. I particularly like the "night light" for training in the evening during periods of the year with short daylight hours. Thank you for the opportunity to comment.

I have two dogs and the training is so easy. They learn that when they hear the sound it is time to follow commands. The dogs are a male Golden Retriever and a female Daniff. They are both very smart dogs. People comment on how well they mind and it has been because of using this great tool!

I learned several things and really liked the video when a dog is under a real hunting situation they are a little more distracted and you could see how the trainer uses the e collar, when the nose is on the brain is off!

Excellent, very informative and educational video. Ms. Robin MacFarlane is an excellent trainer and teacher. The way video has been created it made very easy to understand the idea behind the e-collar training. Repetitions in a variety of situations with different dogs helped me a lot to understand and follow instruction. I have never used e-collar in the past. Watching this great training tool helped me a lot to be able and train my dog. Without video, I would not be able to know, how to even start using this collar. I sincerely appreciate that this video has been included in the e-collar package. THANK YOU A LOT!

The video was extremely helpful. Before watching we were hesitant to start off our 11 week old Brittany with an e-collar. We followed Robins video along with some good Garmin videos and have been very pleased with results and improved behavior all around.

It was good, Cash particularly liked watching with me( ha, ha). But I had trouble getting repeated behavior beyond the first few basics without continued hits. After the first few times cash would just shut down and continued correction was just torture. Need to go a little deeper explaining things like that.

I already see good results. Vizslas are very active and sensitive. They don't take well to training that is harsh or too stern. McFarlane's method is really useful for breeds like this. The video's focus is on training your dog to be a good pet. I wish she would expand her technique into specifics for retrievers and pointers.

Basic is the key word. It offered good discussion points, but not nearly as robust on actual training methods for the different commands or problem solving issues with duration, distance and distraction. I got more from free Internet searches on the topic than from this $40 video.

Pretty basic information. Not worth $40 in my opinion. After watching the DVD I would say it's worth more like $25. If there was a series of DVD's that covered basic, intermediate and advanced instruction I think it would be of more value and would be worth more.
