agesilaus Posted October 28, 2019 Report Share Posted October 28, 2019 (edited) OK wireless fences seem to be out, and thinking about using one on the road seems to be impractical. But what about E Collars aka Training Collars aka Shock Collars. Now let me hasten to add that I watched a couple of hours of training videos on line last night and understand these are training aids and not for punishment. You stick with a leash for quite awhile after starting with one and the goal is to make the dog associate a leash with the e collar so you can dispense with the leash most of the time. I recommend this video Larry Krohn and his 'dog' Sophie His daughter Sophie does an excellent job as the 'dog' being trained. Krohn calls the leash "a translator" which conveys your wishes to the dog in a way he can understand. Also involved is a treat pouch full of dog treats. So any of you out there using one of these? My goal is to convince our Aussie not to head for the hills as soon as he gets loose. And I would want to use it boondocking mainly at least until we are sure of the effectiveness Edited October 28, 2019 by agesilaus Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
