 An Overview of Remote Collar Training

What is the content?

How is it organized?



The purpose of a remote collar is not too punish a dog for not minding, but rather to redirect a dog from a distraction and get it to comply to what we are asking it to do with the least amount of force possible.


I purchased my first remote collar in 1978 and produced the first version of this course as a DVD in 2008. Quite frankly the information in this new course (which was produced in 2019) is light years ahead of what I put into that DVD 11 years ago. 


Training dogs with remote collars is one of the most misunderstood dog training tools ever invented. This course is going to simplify the training program for remote collars. It will also demystify old myths concerning "electric collar training".


We show new trainers that remote collars do not have to hurt our dogs. We also help trainers understand exactly when and how they should add collar training to their obedience program. Doing this correctly solves many behavioral problems people have when they don't use remote collars the correct way.


We cover how to select the right collar for you and your dog. Our feeling is that remote collars should be very easy to learn and simple to operate. Too many collars today have bells and whistles that only complicate their operation. 


In a step by step manner we cover when and how to introduce a dog to the feeling of low level stimulation. When this is done correctly our dogs do not get stressed. They also learn that stimulation doesn't hurt. 


Once the dog has been introduced to what stimulation feels like we have a protocol that determines the dog's working level of stimulation.  Every dog is different. You will see that breed and size has nothing to do with what level of stimulation a dogs needs to work.


In the segment titled "Determining Your Dog's Working Level of Stimulation" you will watch us go through the training protocol with 14 dogs of different breeds and sizes. That segment will convince you that every dog is different and the size of the dog has nothing to do with how it reacts to stimulation.


There is an old myth that remote collar training is painful to the dog. That may have been the case many years ago, but today that is 100% not the case. We teach pet owners to use low level stimulation that is not at all painful.  We compare working stimulation levels to a tap on the dogs shoulder reminding him that it needs to pay attention and follow directions.


The beauty of a remote collars can be seen when our dog is put in a highly distracting environment. With the remote we have the ability to stop our dog from chasing distractions that may be in our working environment.


The methods we used to determine our dog's working levels of stimulation have changed. We have learned a lot about working levels over the past 11 years. We learned that when dogs are correctly introduced to the feeling of low level stimulation they will respond to levels so low that we humans cannot even feel the stimulation.

Advanced Dog Trainers


Both the trainer and the dog need to understand marker training. Before remote collar training should begin it can not be stressed enough that both you and your dog must have a basic understanding of reward based training and how it relates to distractions and duration. Trainers need to understand what their dog's high value food reward is. For many dogs this is above the level of a normal dog treat.
