Off-leash/E-collar training at Maximum Canine
The e-collar is a beneficial tool used for precise, consistent communication with your dog. It uses electro-stimulation, similar to what a chiropractor or physical therapist might use, it is NOT A SHOCK. Our training uses the lowest level of stimulation that the dog feels to motivate the dog towards wanted behaviors. The e-collar can be used to move your dog off-leash by acting as an “invisible leash” that lets you control your dog from a distance, providing a safety net to help prevent them from running into traffic and approaching strangers or strange dogs, who may not be friendly.
The e-collar must be introduced as part of a balanced training method, and should not be introduced without the proper supervision of a trainer. We begin training the e-collar by pairing it with commands that the dog already understands, then combine it with a leash correction that the dog is familiar with. When used properly, the e-collar training can reduce conflict and anxiety by preventing negative association. The e-collar is a tool to be used such as a leash or collar to help the dog master the training and fine-tune communication between you and your dog.
Our basic curriculum includes the following:
- Balanced training techniques
- Marker word training (“yes”, “no”)
