Collar Conditioning Your Retriever

Before you can train your dog with a collar, he must be collar-conditioned. Collar conditioning is a vital step used to reinforce a command the dog already knows, such as, “Sit” or “Stay.” Once you reinforce the commands the dog already knows then you can use the collar to correct that action. And, there’s no doubt a correction should be administered sooner rather than later. If done correctly, the dog learns that IT is in control of the collar.They learn that the faster they respond the less pressure they will feel.

Are There Less Expensive Collars That Work?

In a word, absolutely. However, as the saying goes, “You get what you pay for.” When searching for a dog training collar, it is extremely important to choose one that is well constructed and is of a high-quality. Cheaply constructed, off brand, training collars are not the best for your dog and can result in injury. Low quality electronic training collars run the risk of having the wiring malfunction and could put your four-legged friend at serious risk. If you’re looking for something a little less expensive yet blue ribbon quality, the SportDOG Wetlandhunter 425 and the Dogtra Arc Wetlands are both great options.

Ranges Vary on Gun Dog Training Collars

How do you know what range is best for you and your dog? We are asked this question quite often. It all depends on what you are planning to do with your gun dog. We definitely recommend that you always go one step further than you think you need. 

All of the dog training collars we offer range between 400 yards and 1 mile. If you do not plan on extended training at all, then you are safe going with lower range option. However, if you feel that you have any desire at all to run tests, you’re better off with purchasing a longer range collar to be on the safe side. And as you can see from our Top Sellers page, we offer numerous extended range collars at competitive prices.
