Who wouldn’t want a well-trained dog that everyone enjoys having around? Let’s face it. No one wants a dog that bites, nips, barks, digs, jumps, begs or growls, but how do you achieve the preferred behaviors and eliminate the unwanted ones?
Simply put, the answer is training. At the very least, you want your dog to know and obey the basic commands of sit, stay, come, down and heel.
Maybe you can get your dog to obey when he is on a leash but the second he is loose, you have lost all control. Not only is this a cause for major frustration, it also puts your dog at risk from any one of a number of hazards. So how do you train your dog to obey on and off the leash? The simple solution is a remote dog training collars.
Having been used by professional trainers for years, remote dog training collars are gaining recognition and popularity with pet owners as a means of achieving their goals of owning a well-trained dog who listens on and off the leash.
Unfortunately, for many years, the only type of remote dog training collars available were shock collars. However, with the breakthrough technology of citronella remote dog training collars a few years ago, another option was made available. You can now have an effective, humane aid to train your pet. A citronella remote dog training collar is the safe alternative to a shock collar.
Dogs will respond faster when using a remote dog training collar that does NOT cause pain or anxiety. A shock collar causes both. Although the citronella remote dog training collar is an electronic dog training collar, it is not a shock collar. It uses a gentle spray of citronella which causes a disruptive stimulus.
It has been found that using the citronella spray collar along with positive reinforcement is more than twice as effective as an electric shock collar for behavior modification. When you inflict pain with a shock collar, you may very well increase anxiety and aggression in your dog, making behavior problems even worse.
According to current statistics, there are approximately 74.8 million dogs living in 44.8 million households across the United States. Train your dog to be one of the well-behaved ones.
To teach a new behavior, reward your dog 100% of the time he offers you the correct response. To maintain a behavior that has been learned, reward your dog intermittently and unpredictably. Remember that perseverance and consistent training will help you achieve your goal of the well-behaved pet.
