    I was tempted to wake my g/f up this morning with a level 2 because she was snoring louder then my dog...lol

    Sorry if that's how I'm coming across though. I can get heated when it comes to a good debate ...It's not that I'm trying to push my opinion on anyone, but just to kinda demystify the idea of it being "harsh" or "cruel." What works for you, works for you...and what works for me, works for me. Sorry if I offended anyone

    It's a bit different with a girlfriend, though. Because she can give you clear consent, then it's fair game!
    GFs can give you all kinds of violence related consents. (actually, if you have a "safe-word", they don't even have to give you clear consent every time )


    I know, I know, I'm bad. But Lola is slowly turning me into such a good boy.

    Thank you for not giving up on Lilly. She has issues but clearly none that you are not willing to try to amend. Please know that I'm no professional either *far from it* but I know what "willing and able" is --- and clearly, that's what you are too. You've done the research and now, Lilly has a hope in this world.

    All dogs WANT to be BALANCED. They are miserable when they are NOT balanced and we can have hope for Lilly and celebrate your successes. Be sure to share them. I am interested.

    i dont know if i would ever use one of these collars but i might have when i first got sarah if they had been around dunno. i had success with the water in the water bottle so i didnt have to try it. i guess its a personal choice and it sounds like they are alot tamer than they used to be. im glad your dog is doing well.

    Yeah I kinda forget when they were first made for the invisible fencing systems...WoW were they strong!! They are nothing like them thank god!

    I remember my friend touched the back of my neck and made it go off...I must have jumped 10 feet in the air from a sitting position

    Well I'm just happy it is working for you and you did not give up on her and just throw her away like the others did. Now she has a loving home and seems like she is coming around and the more she does the happier she will be.

    I used to think that the e collar worked like a shock collar and I would never do it. Our first bulldog trained relatively easily and was pretty easy going. Fiona on the the other hand is a different story. I tried rewards based training and clicker training and she was moderately successful but when she noticed I didn't have a treat she decided she didn't have to do what she was asked. Training turned into a battle of wills. Then I talked to a guy who trains all sorts of dogs and he suggested the e-collar. We talked about how it wasn't a "shock" it was and electronic stimulation to get their attention. I don't think it is a mean way to train and would suggest to anybody. The results we have seen are remarkable. We train her once a day or every other day for about 20-30 minutes in about 5-7 spurts. Once she gets the command down we don't use the collar.

    Since Matilda died in March Fiona has been sort of lost. She didn't know where she belonged. Since beginning her training Fiona has "found" herself and is a settling in to being a good, confident bulldog.

    Is it for every dog and owner? I don't know. All I can say is that it works for us and our dog.

    Would you mind sharing exactly which E-collar you got?

    My opinion is it would be heart breaking for me to use so for me I couldnt do it but if its working for you and and it sounds like it is then I say more power to ya. Different strokes for different folks!

    EBDR35: The collar we have is the Einstein 400TS-A

    Sweetpeasmom: Again, I used to think that as well. It works the way that ab belt thing does for us humans. That infomercial that they play where they say you can lose weight by doing sit up while you sit on the couch. It just contracts the muscle, no pain involved.

    Like you said, different strokes for different folks. This will always be a "hot button" topic.
