Off Leash K9 Training, Columbia We specialize in private lessons, dog behavior consultations, and teaching the owners to understand why their dogs do the things they do. This helps create a strong bond between the owner and dog. We offer e-collar training and clicker training. An “e-collar” is basically a collar with a stimulation mechanism (similar to an electric fence collar). The collar is controlled by a remote that the handler holds. The remote allows you to maintain full control of your dog for up to 400 yards! Therefore, it gives your dog a lot of freedom and it saves you from worrying about your dog running off! It is not used as a punishment or a “shock” as many people assume, it is simply used as a training device for communicating with your dog. It produces a subtle electrical current between two contact points located on the collar. In the old days this type of collar was used as "shock collar" and many inexperienced dog owners tried to use this device to scare their dog into submission. In the proven training method we teach, your dog is never "shocked into submission" or abused. Unlike a shocking device, the e-collar is used to get the dog's attention and keep it focused on listening to the handler. It is the equivalent of someone tapping your shoulder to get your attention, or setting your phone on vibrate so it will get your attention when someone is calling you. We teach the dog to listen to those "taps" and that the "taps" mean, "I am trying to get your attention.” See Details
