REMOTE COLLAR TRAINING

REMOTE COLLAR TRAINING is one of the greatest advances in all of dog training. On the other hand, nothing has brought about more controversy and differing opinions in the dog training industry as the use of remote collars in dog training. In this article I will dispel some myths and get down to facts.

Remote Collar Training

REMOTE COLLAR TRAINING HISTORY

SHOCK COLLARS, ELECTRIC COLLARS, E-COLLARS WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?  A lot actually, yet not much.  I know that sounds and seems paradoxical and it is.  What else is paradoxical is that Remote Training Collars or E-Collars are some of the most gentle dog training tools around.

History or Remote Collar Training

1960’s Old School “Shock Collar” Early Remote Collars were crude, large, and they were PAINFUL!

Electronic collars were first used in the 1960’s.  back in the 60’s everything was big.  Big Cars, Big TV’s and Big “Shock Collars.” Back in the 1960’s the remote training collars were painful and had one setting, and that setting could only be changed by taking out a tool to remove the two contact points on the collar that touch the dog’s neck with different contact points.  Some old school remote training collars had two or three different contact points or three settings (High, Medium, and Low.)  Back in the 60’s even low hurt like hell.

Years ago remote training collars were used for punishment.  They were first primarily used to punish and correct hunting dogs who made mistakes but were off leash and at a distance from the dog handler. 

Because the remote training collar was crude back in the 60’s and had little to no adjust-ability, all settings on the remote training collar were punishment and all settings were painful.  The word “SHOCK” was an appropriate term for those old school remote training collars.

TODAY’S MODERN REMOTE COLLAR TRAINING

Modern remote training collars today are a far cry from the painful shock collars and punishing tools that they were in the 1960’s.  Today our TV’s have gotten smaller, Phones have gotten much smaller, and so have remote training collars.  As electronics have gotten smaller with microchips so have the remote training collar tools.

Dogtra Remote Training Collar

Today remote collar training by DOGTRA is gentle and does not produce a shock.  Many people still call the remote collar training tools shock collars but that is no longer correct.  A “SHOCK” is painful.

Today’s modern remote training collars have between 100-127 settings or levels and use EMS (Electric Muscle Stimulation) and TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) technology.  The science and technology is the same and the stimulation that today’s modern remote training collars emit is medical grade stimulation.

Anyone that has ever had muscle spasms and has gone to a physical therapist is familiar with TENS and EMS therapy.  They use low level electrical stimulation to contract the muscles to help relieve pain and release the muscle spasm.  Here is more information as to the difference between EMS and TENS

Remote Training Collars and Remote Collar Training is a product of the individual doing the remote collar training.  Its kind of like the gun debate.  No matter where you stand on the whole gun debate issue, like guns or hate guns.  Guns don’t kill, people do.

Remote Training Collars Don’t Punish or Hurt, People Do!

REMOTE COLLAR TRAINING VIDEO THAT DISPELS THE MYTHS

(A MUST WATCH VIDEO)

Remote Collar Training is gentle, safe, effective, and when used at very low levels the stimulation is not painful.  The gentle stimulation is just a mild, pulse that gets the dog’s attention, and the dog works to turn off the very mild annoyance that the stimulation creates.

There are animal rights activists and PETA who are trying to ban the use of Remote Training Collars.  They do this by spreading misinformation and playing on peoples emotions.  Remote Collar Training is safe, gentle, and does not cause fear, pain, and intimidation.  Today’s Remote Training Collars have sophisticated adjust ability to be able to fit every dog’s size and temperament. 

If you see a dog that looks stressed out, is in discomfort, its not the tool, its not the remote training collar, its the individual trainer using a tool in a harsh punitive way.  You can find hundreds if not thousands of examples of dogs being trained with Remote Collar Training and Remote Training Collars, that are happy, animated, up beat,  fun loving dogs.

Phoenix Dog Training is Phenomenal!! From the very beginning we knew we were in good hands. They worked so well with our whole family. Getting the kids involved in the training was brilliant. We would definitely recommend this company.

I recently called Phoenix dog training to train my out of control hyper Australian Shepherd. The training was excellent and the service was A+ all the way. I have used two trainers before that could not help with the pulling on walks when any dog came by and jumping on guests. Now "Molly" knows to go to her "Place" when the door bell rings. Walks are now enjoyable. I can even take her off leash and she stays right with me. I can not thank you enough.Tyler Thompson

My wife and I highly recommend Phoenix Dog Training. Our dog, a Labrador Retriever/German Shepard Mix, (Mr. Pickles) was trained last summer and we could not be more happy with the results. Mr. Pickles has been an excellent dog ever since his training. Everyone that comes in contact with our dog is amazed by his obedience and uncanny maturity even though he is not even three years old. He has acted perfectly on an international flight in-cabin, in the grocery store, restaurants and practically any situation one can imagine. My wife and I have Phoenix Dog Training to thank for training our dog to be the most well behaved dog we have ever seen or met. Phoenix Dog Training understands dog behavior and knows how to train a dog to meet the needs of their owners. Phoenix Dog Training utilizes empathetic, efficient, and effective methodologies in training dogs and we give them an emphatic recommendation!

I was referred to Phoenix Dog Training by our Veterinarian because of our Boxer Max, and his aggression.Phoenix Dog Training and their Harvard schooled Animal Behaviorist did an incredible job helping myself and my family bring Max under control. We realize we will need to manage Max's behavior for as long as he is with us, but now we have the skills and the tools to keep Max and everyone happy and safe. Thank you for all the great training help and support with our dog Max.

I have always trained all of my dogs myself. I have never had a dog I could not train. My current dog Jasper is the exception. I truly thought my dog had a mental problem. Thanks to Phoenix Dog Training I no longer think Jasper is mental. Jasper just needed his owner trained. I would recommend Phoenix Dog Training to anyone needing professional dog training.

I am so grateful I found Phoenix Dog Training. I live up in North Scottsdale and have a large yard. We get a lot of wild animals that come onto our property. Coyotes, Havelina, Bob Cats Mountain Lion, you name it. The problem I was having was my dog Skip would not come when called. No matter what we did he would not come when called. He would call me when there were no distractions. He would come when nothing was going on. But up another dog or another person or another animal is there, he will not come for anything! I have tried several other dog trainers in Scottsdale. They all promised me they could get my dog to come, and they did a great job getting my dog to listen to me when there were no distractions. But if there's another animal, they were not able to get my dog to come when called. Out of frustration and skeptical, I called Phoenix dog training. They said they had a money back guarantee. I figured if there was ever a time they would have to honor their money back guarantee it would be with myself and my dog Skip. To my absolute amazement, the dog trainer from Phoenix Dog Training was able to get Skip to come with the distraction of another dog he brought with him within about 3 minutes! It was absolutely crazy!!! No one had been able to produce any results, and here they have skip coming when called with another dog around, skip would normally go crazy. But this time he was coming when called! I would definitely recommend Phoenix Dog Training!!! They saved my dog from being eaten from a Mountain Lion I'm sure!!!

I really want to thank you guys. Phoenix Dog Training has made my dogs life and my life so much better. I get to finally enjoy my dog. Walks are now a pleasure. She sits and stays when I tell her. When I call her to me, now she comes. I love the "place" command and that seems to be her favorite command too. I'm looking forward to the Polishing and Maintenance classes that Phoenix Dog Training offers after our completion of our private at home dog training lessons. Thank you again.

Phoenix Dog Training is AMAZING! They rehabilitated my aggressive PitBull when 3 other trainers failed and told me the only option was to euthanize my dog. Boy am I glad I did not listen to the other trainers and hired a real Dog Behaviorist. It is very different working with a professional Dog Behaviorist than just a Dog Trainer. It was worth the money and the time to save my dogs life. Definitely hire Phoenix Dog Training.
