Now, 6 yrs laster, it is not really necessary since we remained consistent and firm with her training
    It really is a wonderful training AID if used correctly. I say aid because that is all it is. You train and use the collar to remind.
    I tried it on myself, using all the settings before selecting one for my dog (not any of the bulldogs, but a yapping little yorkie I had a while back that was about to get me kicked out) Anyway, the setting i chose did not hurt, only vibrated. It worked like a charm. I had another dog one that was no candidate at all for that type of collar. If it hurts the dog it is useless. He would get used to the high level and go on acting aggressive. Its not for all dogs, but a godsend for the few that it benefits.

    No but I do understand 'the red zone' Bank's mom speaks of cause Karly is like that - I have to constantly tell her not to do things like pee in the house! She's like a ninja and will go pee on the carpet then get mad cause I won't let her upstairs. She's the type to run off but if I tell her not to do that before going out off leash she'll do pretty good you just have to keep reminding her. She's much more wild than Nigel but she's come a long way since the early years. We'll be going on 3 years in Dec / Jan.


    Cheerio mates!

    LOL @jimmyjj, of course not! cattle prods emit electricity. I used the collar that vibrated. To each his own and I agree that it should be a last resort, and absolutely NEVER on a low confidence dog, as it will make that dog even more skittish. I don't think this thread is controversial, unless someone makes it so. We are here to share our experiences and learn from the experiences of others right?

    I'm a wimp on things like this. Although my 30 wedding anniversary is coming up might be a good gift for the little lady... But never on the boys.
