    If you want to go the collar route... I suggest you find a trainer to work with--- timing is EVERYTHING when using this tool. I have years of experience with them and we spent weeks training with a trainer to ensure proper usr

    maybe ill call the vets and see what they think (i have a new vet at same office)
    3 Weeks? Really??? My vet told me full effect takes months and sure enough he was right. I would do two things, consider putting him back on the meds, and interviewing new vets.

    I would not encourage the behavior, if you are considering the use of shock collar, the behavior will be there already.

    Well, this is what I said before. First, I would start out with a collar that has tone and static. Start with the tone only, I think you will get the results you are looking for. I would not start out shocking him.

    I don't understand then, because if it is telling you to find and acceptable level, that means shock. and the lady at the store telling you it could cause worse aggression also means shock. I think you need to understand and know how to operate this collar before use. The collar I showed you earlier has two buttons, a green one and a yellow one. The green is the tone and when the button is pushed, it will activate a beeping sound. The yellow is the static shock and when pressed will send a static shock to the collar. I am going to repeat myself, I would not start out with the shock feature and this is only to be used as a training tool for eventual disuse when the desired behavior is achieved.

    IMO you need a trainer to help you learn HOW to use this device before you start shocking your dog… this could be disastrous.

    i purchased one and i have not used it as i'm not comfortable that i know how to properly use it!
    i am reading up on it and have contacted a behaviourlist to help me. i wouldnt go out and start just using a tool before i now the risks and how to properly use it...all i did was place it on him last night so he gets used to wearing it and not see it as a negative thing or he will never let me put it on him in the first place.

    That's good. I think contacting a trainer is the way to go.

    Megan, our apologies if it seemed harsh - its never meant that way. We care for him as much as you do which is the exact reason why we just want to make sure you do everything safely - not just for him, but for you as well. We know you care for him, and this is why you reached out for suggestions, and help. I know he will learn, and you are doing everything in your power to help him.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Also praise & reward for good behavior so he sees the differences.
