    DefaultBest Dog Training in Akron?

    One of the local TV stations is doing a thing that rates the best of everything in our area. I finally listed my training center in it. Get this--the one that is winning thus far is the training guy who uses e-collars as his primary training collar. Anyway, we'll see what happens. We have until early May for the voting. Should be interesting.

    E-collar training doesn't have to be brutal. I'm sure you know that, so I'm assuming the person you're referring to is not a fair trainer. We have some of them around too.

    Best of luck! I didn't realize you were in Akron--- have a couple pups there, now 5 and 9. Anne

    Thanks Linda!

    Yes, I know e-collars are not all bad but as the primary tool for training---that bothers me. Yep, I'm in Akron! Neat that you got some "kids" around here.

    I voted for ya! My primary tool for training is "attrition", backed with e-collar corrections as needed for lack of effort or the very rare "flipping the paw." E collars are just a tool, no better or worse than the person holding the transmitter.

    I hope you win!

    Field Guy Regards!

    Thanks guys! Melissa, when I saw the recommendation I thought it might be you!

    Yes, e-collars are just a tool. Just bothers me when it is the primary. I've had a lot of calls about that in the past few months. But it does have to be used correctly. I refer anyone to the couple I take lessons from if the want e-collar training.
