Corrections with a Training Collar

Concerning corrections, we always want to make sure the dog understands what we are asking them before applying a correction. The correction needs to be enough to stop the behavior but not too much as well. I will show you how to apply a proper leash correction with the tool you are using, Please wait before applying leash corrections until you have spent enough time teaching.

Remember, as a great trainer friend of mine Mark McCabe says, "Look for moments to reward rather then just moments to correct",

The sequence is:

  1. Any Cue such as “Heel”, “Look”, "Leave It”, “Sit"
  2. "No", if the ignores the cue and understands it.
  3. Apply a appropriate correction
  4. Repeat same cue, and mark and reward for good choice.
