    DefaultE-collar Book and Video Recommendations Needed

    I'm fairly certain I will go with the Dogtra 1900 (I think that was it) but before I get to far I'd like to start reading up on how to train with e-collars.

    any tips on what to get as far as books (preferably) and videos?

    Not sure what your intent is. I am not anti e-collar so don't take me wrong. You said, 'how to train with e-collar'. I don;t think that is a good idea. I am assuming you are as novice as I was when I first started to consider an e-collar. e-collar is for reinforcement of known commands when off lead and at a distance. You don't want to try to train with the e-collar. Only to correct behaviour when a known command is ignored.

    the training is already done and repeated many times (and reinforced) it's to reinforce the recall offleash (and drop it). He knows.

    What I mean is, when you start using the e-collar you don't just slap it on then say "rocky come" and buzz if he doesn't come. What are the steps to using e-collars at first.

    I don't believe in training new commands, or even just jumping too quickly to the e-collar. I've gone back and forth on this for two years and again, it's still not purchased.

    Tanya: The very best, without peer, instructional information on collar conditioning your dog is Mike Lardy's "Total E-Collar Conditioning." You can get it at www.totalretriever.com or most of the gun dog places.

    Mike Lardy's is excellent and another one is Evan Graham's Smart Works.

    It is always best to teach at least three things with an E-collar a Go, a stop, and a come, so they do not by default always come to you when you nick them.

Height females 21.5 to 23.5 inches males 22.5 to 24.5 inches at the withers.
