When a dog over powers the e-collar and no matter what level shock you put it and like they’re not wearing one, basically the brain has escalated to a level that it won’t come down till you shake him out of the escalation with your voice n being in his face. Then you’ll see they will snap out of it within a few seconds. A dog needs to know the difference between any negative behaviour and the shock. Basically a shock doesn’t reward positive behaviour such as sitting patiently or obeying the command to stay with “a good boy” or treat. I’m telling you this so you can keep an eye out on the signs of a brain escalation cause he has already started over powering his shock collar. I’ve been there done it.
    We had that issue with Banks too... we had to REALLY focus on learning her triggers so we could get her with a vibration BEFORE she went into her zone. Triggers and timing is everything with these collars. @Cbrugs

    Monty is so good. He stands to the side while my dachshund goes berserk and then calmly leans on the visitor and waits for his rubs. Then he goes back to bed.

    I was thinking exactly the same thing! We have had other breeds before and they have all enjoyed it when people have visited BUT Dudley goes so crazy every time! At least I know it not just a “Dudley thing” now

    Can I ask what you mean when you say your Bully’s are “in the zone”? Are you talking about aggression triggers?

    Once a dog (any dog) is over stimulated, it is referred to as ‘in the zone’ and it is more difficult to get them to respond to any commands.

    Dak seems to get crazy after we come back from a walk. He starts running all over, attacks his toys and seeks a lot of attention. I'm trying to get him to learn "No".

    When you walk into the house with him n since you already knows what he will be doing, keep his leash on n walk a few steps in the house. Don’t remove the leash just yet. As soon as you see he stares at a toy, immediately yank the leash with a FIRM NO. No conversations either. Don’t remove the leash till he calms down on his own.

    When I walk my 2, I go through the back gate cause both, even though I walk 4-5km with them, they will have that last boost of energy to run free. So I wait a few seconds, then remove the leash n leave them go burn that extra boost of leftover energy they got in them. Only last like a minute or two.
