How To Train A Dog With An E Collar


E collar training is a controversial, but potentially effective way to train your dog. The key to success with e collars lies in understanding how they work and how to use them safely and responsibly.

Choose the right e collar.

You should choose an e-collar that is made for dogs and has been waterproofed. It should also have a large range of intensity settings, so you can adjust the shock level according to your dog’s size and temperament. The collar should be comfortable for your dog to wear—you don’t want him panicking when he feels the collar pinch against his neck! Make sure it is easy to use, too; some models will allow you to set different shock levels on each side of the collar, which may make training easier than others.

Start with low intensity.

As with any training device, you want to start with the lowest possible setting. If your dog is not responding well to the initial level, increase it slightly and try again. Remember that it’s important that your collar be snug enough so that it will be effective when in use; if it is too loose, then there may not be a proper connection between the collar and your dog’s neck. If this happens they may not feel any effect from their correction at all! On the other hand, if you have a particularly small or sensitive dog who isn’t responding well to even low levels of stimulation from his remote trainer (like my friend’s Chihuahua), then you might want to consider using an e-collar without having any shock feature activated at all—then again maybe not…

Correct every time.

  • Correct every time.
  • You must be consistent with your dog or it will not be able to understand what you want.
  • Always give positive reinforcement for good behavior so the dog knows what is expected of it.
  • It is important that you make sure there are no distractions during training sessions and that your timing is correct, otherwise your dog can become confused. The more consistent you are with your training method, the easier it will be for your pet to understand what they need to do in each situation and then perform accordingly when necessary.

Introduce the other dog commands as positive triggers.

The first step in training your dog with an e collar is to introduce them to the concept and make sure they understand that it’s a positive thing.

You can do this by using treats, but you also need to be very clear about what you are rewarding your dog for. If you have two dogs that don’t get along, and one of them gets an electric shock every time they approach each other while they are wearing their collars, then that’s not going to help resolve their conflict!

Do not leave the e collar on your dog all the time.

It is important that you do not leave the e collar on your dog all the time. The reason for this is that it can become a source of stress for your dog. If your dog does something wrong, then it may become afraid when you put on their e collar as they think you are going to punish them again. This can also happen if you leave the e collar on for long periods of time because it will associate it with training and not what they know as fun (going out to play).

The best thing is to use the e collar when training and then take it off once training has finished, so there is no association between wearing an e collar and being punished or corrected by someone else who isn’t present at that time.

Be consistent in training.

The most important thing is to be consistent in your training. Don’t use the e collar on one day and not the next. It will confuse your dog and cause them to lose faith in you. Also, if you are training a puppy, don’t expect them to learn everything in a week or two. It takes time for dogs to develop their brains and bodies; don’t push them too hard or they will give up on learning because they haven’t got the energy or time they need!

E collar training can be an effective way to train your dog, when used carefully and responsibly.

E-collar training can be an effective way to train your dog, when used carefully and responsibly. It’s important to note that e-collars are not the only type of tool you should use for training. You may find that other tools work better for some dogs or specific behaviors, but many people prefer to use them as part of a balanced approach that also includes positive reinforcement and rewards.

If you’re considering e-collar training, it’s best to consult with a professional trainer or behaviorist who has experience using these tools in order to get advice on how best to incorporate them into your training plan.


E collar training can be an effective way to train your dog, when used carefully and responsibly. It is important that you choose the right collar and start with low intensity on it, giving your dog enough time to get used to any noises or sensations associated with it. You should correct every time your dog doesn’t perform a command so they know what to do instead of making mistakes. When introducing the other commands as positive triggers, make sure there are no distractions present so that your pup doesn’t get confused between different stimuli (such as “sit” for sit down when there is food).

Finally, e collars should not be left on all day long—they should only be worn during training sessions or for very short periods of time otherwise (e.g., if you have guests over). If you follow these tips consistently throughout their lives then dogs will have much better manners than those who were never trained using this method at all!
