What's interesting about these videos is that Robin has never worked with these dogs before, and several younger dogs have never been trained on an ecollar.
First, Robin walks you through the basic obedience commands showing what proper form looks like.
Next, Robin shows how she introduces the ecollar to two of Steve's puppies, Jack & Tilly, and shows you how to find the right STIM level to communicate with your dog.
She then turns that into a lesson for your dog to recognize that STIM means pay attention to your handler and expands that into a basic recall.
Additional segments include teaching RECALL, PLACE, SIT, and HEEL.

The SportDOG Contain 'n Train system is designed to provide all of the current containment capabilities of the SportDOG In-Ground Fence (SDF-100A) combined with the remote training capabilities of the SportDOG FieldTrainer 425 (SD-425). The containment transmitter produces a radio signal that goes through the included wire to create a boundary to keep your dog safe and contained, while the handheld gives you the ability to remotely train your dog both within the containment area at home, or out in the field -- all with the same e-collar!

SportDOG Contain + Train
Gun Dog Supply EXCLUSIVE
One hour of BASIC OBEDIENCE training
from Pro Trainer Robin MacFarlane.
We have a very hard headed boxer that loves to eat our kitchens so we tried the wireless system from petsafe and she would run right thru it. This system has enough adjustability to control the most stubborn dog. But with that adjustability comes trial and error until you get it set right. Well made and the 1000ft of wire you get is plenty for a large dog yard. The train controller reaches much further than our old sport dog collar and the collar battery lasts for days and days.
