2. Use Multiple Methods in Addition to A Shock Collar
If we go back to Thor’s training to carry his toy to pond in the park, we are using multiple training methods simultaneously in place of soley using a dog shock collar. In Thor’s case, he is inherently getting a reward when he hears the word “Wubba.” When he hears the word Wubba it means he is getting to go to the pond and go swim. Trust us — this is like Christmas for Labradors.

For the longest time I have been opposed to shock collars. I have never worked with a dog that after obedience training and just normal maturing that most behaviors went away. Our newest addition we have had for two years, gone through training and everything with still insists on running away. She typically goes to one of two places. One of which leads her towards a very busy road. After talking with my trainer she said what is more humane a dog hit by a car or a zapped dog? I have not used the collar yet and after 8 months of continually taking my dog out on a leash on our 3 acre property, I let her play in the snow yesterday. She after 8 months ran towards the fence, hopped over it and as I called for her and did all the positive reinforcement I could squeaking toys, telling her she could have treats she wouldn’t even look at me as she ran, sniffed and ignored me. In the yard on a 30ft line she listens, and comes to me without a tug on the rope. Loose she takes off! Hoping she can join my other border collie in trail riding eventually however I just can’t trust her to be wise enough to stay out of the road and listen to me when it is most important.
