GETTING BETTER BEHAVIOR WITH A REMOTE COLLAR
Remote collars act like an invisible leash and give owners the ability to communicate with their dog in a consistent manner. The way you apply pressure on a leash when walking and changing corrections we condition the ecollar in such a way that it is as if you are physically communicating with your dog with distance not being a factor. This means that if you are hiking and you notice your dog is getting too far or happens to see deer and want to chase it you have a way to communicate with them despite their utter excitement of deer or distraction of smells.
When we condition an ecollar to your dog we condition it with the word "no." When we say "No" this means to stop the current behavior and look to us to follow the cue given after whether it was because they broke a sit stay or start to pull on the leash instead of being in a heel command. Our goal is to have your dog understand that when they feel the stim of the ecollar their immediate response is to look to whoever is handing them to wait for further instruction. This is to help you communicate with your dog and not for punishment.
The cost of the remote collar is not extra and is included in the price of the training package for our 3 week and 4 week program.
2-Week On Leash Behavior Shaping Residency Program With 4 Private Handler Lessons
One-time Fee of $1900.00
When you choose a residency program, the training of your dog will be accomplished quickly without disrupting your busy schedule. Dog obedience training at San Antonio Dog Training Co. includes teaching your pooch to:
HEEL - Your dog walks closely at your side on command.
LETS GO - Your dog will come back to you and continue to walk with you with a loose leash.
SIT - Your dog sits quietly and patiently until released.
DOWN - Your dog lies down until released.
PLACE - Your dog will learn to stay on a mat that limits his/her movement to a designated area.
READ HAND SIGNALS - Your dog will learn to read your body language. Using hand signals teaches your dog to pay closer attention to you and obey your silent commands.
BEHAVIOR PROBLEM SOLVING – We’ll provide assistance on modifying unwanted behaviors such as jumping up, barking, leash pulling, etc.
This program is for owners who do not want to use an e-collar and want to work on behaviors such as loose leash walking as well as shaping behaviors for you to be able to have a foundation to work from such as sit stays, down stays, place stays, and coming when called while on a longline.
