I was just wondering what everyone thought about this and if you guys think it would really work?? Isn't it just like a prong collar or choke collar just plastic??

You can’t correct your dog after the fact; he won’t understand what you are correcting him for…Dogs have an amazing memory!


This statement alone tells me they have a very poor concept of dog behavior.

I saw the infomerical for this last week! It was part of some guys training DVD set. It made unbelievable claims, instant results for all sorts of behavior issues. :yucky:

lol...I saw the infomercial today too! I was just thinking while watching it, my dogs would never listen with that thing on and I do not think that would really be worth the money. How can a collar correct cutting dogs toe nails?? haha..Infomercials always over exaggerate!

Yup. No one says "the dog can't remember" - it's that the dog won't connect your correction with what he did wrong instead of the 47 other things he thought of since then.

From the "myths" page:
By giving your dog food from your hand you are teaching him that you are his subordinate!

He should be feeding you, instead! After all, momma dogs are submissive to their pups every time they nurse! And the submissive dog always gets first dibs at the kill and then backs off for the dominant dogs to get sloppy seconds!

I do, obviously, like this part:
It is only the “dangerous” breeds that bite and attack…A dangerous assumption! It is obvious that, in general, the more powerful the physical structure of the dog, the more damage it can potentially cause. This is why certain breeds have appeared more prominently in the news over the years. However, this gives society a false impression that it is only these types of dogs that are potentially aggressive. There are more than 4.7 million reported dog bites annually in the United States, however the majority of dog bites are never reported to local authorities. Many of the bites are caused by smaller dog breeds and are not reported because the damage they cause is less significant. (Although, this in no way diminishes the importance of training smaller dogs to control their behavior).


But this is just plain dangerous:
A dog can be trained to override his natural born instincts and happily redirect his attention to more desirable activities.


Because all you have to do is find the more desirable thing to stop a dog fight, right? Except... uh... what is that more desireable thing again?


Still... if he ever drops it down to ONE low payment... I might buy it just to see what he says.

OMG OMG OMG

I saw the infomercial a few weeks ago and totally didn't see that.

Now I want to call and ask him why he can't train smart dogs?

Wow.

OMG! I couldn't read it! Too small of print for me! So does that mean that his claim to fix aggression problems quickly, only fixes aggression in dogs who are not aggressive?!? lol

Isn't the 'personally designed command collar' just a plastic prong collar? At least it looks like a variation in the pictures...

I have a love/hate relationship with infomercials... I would like to order this to see if it works, but I don't want to spend $60 on it. Neither of my dogs are aggressive with other dogs, so maybe they wouldn't be classified like those other pit bulls... lol
