After making it mandatory for our clients to feel the sensation caused by an e-collar on low, medium AND high levels and explaining/ demonstrating how we teach and use this tool with their dogs, they are very surprised by the outrage in the world about banning the tool.
It is nothing more than an emotional group of people who are ignorant to how to properly use tools like the e collar and prong collar.
There are right and wrong ways to use every tool!
ANY training tool including food, harnesses, flat collars, martingales, leashes, crates, slip leads can all be abused but they are not blamed because they understand what the benefits are.
Only if people saw the benefits and proper use of an e collar or prong collar and what they can to improve and save a dog’s life would we start to see change.
We will continue to educate owners and show them the results that can be achieved through proper use of these tools and will not stop.
