-Using a low stimulation to create a line of communication between you & your dog. 

 

-For Dogs 6 months +

-Dogs MUST have basic knowledge of basic obedience. If not please setup a Basic Obedience Private Lesson prior. 

Whether you come to my training location, or you prefer in-home lessons, there are several programs designed to fit your goals and lifestyle. 

What is an Electronic Collar? This is NOT a Shock Collar. An E-Collar is a wireless collar that a dog wears around his/her neck that is operated by the dog handler who uses a hand held transmitter.

 

What Does It Feel Like? The modern E-collar is no longer a unit that produces static shock, but rather a blunt stimulation. Today, the E-collar is virtually a tens-unit similar to what is used in acupuncture, massage, and physical therapy.                                                                             I have all of my students test it on their hand before putting it on their dog. The most common reaction I get is, "That's It?"

 

Why Use An Electronic Collar? It creates an effective way to communicate with your dog. An Electronic Collar lets your dog be off leash, have the freedom they deserve but still allows you to be in full control of them. It can create a solid recall, as well as be used for off leash corrections. 

 

What Collar Do I Buy? We highly recommend and use the Garmin Sport Collars, Mini Educators, SportDogs, or Dogtras. Do NOT buy the cheaper ones, they are unreliable, and the stimulation is too hot!

 

How Do I Get Started? We MUST set up a Private Lesson where I  teach you how the Electronic Collar works and how to properly train your dog with it. NEVER use an Electronic Collar on your own. Your dog must first understand a command before ever using it with an E-Collar.

 

Why Is It So Important To Setup A Lesson / Teach The Language? There is an easy way to use an E-Collar and then there is the right way to use an E-Collar. It is important to remember that it is not a magic wand that will effortlessly make your dog start listening to you.  People can be too quick to start pushing buttons, without explaining any of the "rules" to the dog. Improper usage of the collar can lead to an unreliable dog, and even behavioral issues.  At Willow Creek Dog Training we will teach you how to use the electronic collar to clearly communicate with your dog. 

 

​How Long Does It Take To Train A Dog On The E-Collar To Be Reliable?  Training is about consistency, don’t expect your dog to do well if you don’t put in the time! Training time depends on your training goals, your dog's previous training history, how much you practice, and the age of your dog. For Full Off Leash Hiking Reliability 4 Lessons is Recommended. 

 

2 Lesson Program: 

Perfect for owners who have taken a Basic Obedience Group Class and/or is more of an experienced handler that prefers to follow guided homework assignments. In this program, two lessons will be scheduled approximately 3-5 weeks apart. 2 Homework packets will be given, and discussed at the end of each lesson. 

4 Lesson Program: 

Great for the owner that has the time to work with their dog to complete homework assignments and would benefit from more guidance. Lessons will be scheduled 1-3 weeks apart. 

*Most Popular Program 

6 Lesson Program:

Our 6 Lesson E-Collar Package is great for those who are just starting out their training journey with their dog, and/or would benefit more from weekly guidance. Lessons will be scheduled on a weekly basis.
