Another idea is to put up a small chain link kennel in the back yard just for him to go to the bathroom in. You can get them fairly cheap from Home Depot or if you're feeling thrifty you can look up "dog kennels" on your local Craigslist. I see them all the time around here for pretty chea...

An electric collar would be totally inappropriate in this situation as you are already not supervising your dog. Additionally, an electronic collar should only be used in conjunction with a professional complete obedience program. Generally invisible fences are not appropriate for Pit Bulls. You're ...

I have no opinion on Sit Means Sit or Fred Hassen but... Just to be clear... Correct use of the ecollar will not result in sores on your dog. Sores are always a result on incorrect collar use. If the collar is left on for days one end or left on for extended periods of time while moist you risk skin...

Most Sit Means Sits trainers offer a free consultation and demonstration. I would suggest you take advantage of the free consultation to see first hand how you feel about the trainer and their techniques.

I don't think that the ecollar would be a good choice for this puppy to stop his jumping unless the owner is willing to re-structure their entire training program around the collar. Using the collar every blue moon for a specific behavior does not generally fall under proper use. In these instances ...

If you dont mind me asking who do you train with on the e-collar? Is it a no limitations method of e-collar training? "No Limitations Method is a different way to use the e-collar with out just shocking the dog on a high level if it doesn't listen" every command you give you push the butt...

Did they aspirate the growth before discussing surgery? What were the results? No they didnt do that... in fact what is that? Your vet may have done it but not mentioned it. Here's a good write-up by a vet about aspirates: http://www.mountainvet.com/showpracfaq.cfm?FAQID=26&Private=0 I would re...

Hello everyone! Long time no see! As an avid users and lover of electronic collars I'm going to put my two cents in. That being said, I would ablsolutely not use and e-collar unless under the direction of a skilled and talented trainer with experience. Many of the unpleasant behaviors associated wit...
