To use an electronic collar effectively, first let the dog adjust to the feel of it around its neck and then make sure to keep the transmitter with you at all times, as it is a powerful device. Use the lowest possible stimulation level - only if your dog does not respond to shock level one should you increase the degree. If a dog panics or starts vocalizing, decrease the stimulation.
An improperly used training collar will do no good, and it can harm your training program by causing the dog to become confused and frightened. There are several important things to consider when choosing and fitting a training collar. The first consideration when choosing a training collar is how the collar fits the dog. It is vital that the training collar be fitted properly to the dog. Only a properly fitted training collar will be effective for the dog.
Another alternative is the halter harness. This finds favour with some owners of large pulling dogs, as it controls the head and, just as in leading a horse, controlling the head helps greatly in controlling the whole animal. There are other forms of collars, such as the choker, but I feel that you need to be extremely well informed and careful when using one of these.
