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