Shake those e-collar fears away!
In this video, Ronnie, Co-Owner of The K-9 Academy, briefly explains the benefits of e-collar training. We are committed to using our training tools in a safe and humane way, backed by science and research.
The electronic collar (e-collar) is a pivotal tool in basic obedience and off-leash training in order to obtain consistent, high-level results. We use classical conditioning to acclimate your pup to the different functions of the e-collar, which include vibrations and electronic stimulations (e-stim).
This highly effective training tool is used by police and military K-9 units around the world. The e-stim is localized pain that feels comparable to a TENS unit a human would use to relieve muscle pain.
Owner's will learn how to properly put on and utilize the e-collar. As a Dogtra Authorized Dealer, The K-9 Academy purchases e-collars from from Dogtra, and we stand behind their quality.
All Puppy Class, Elite Training Package, and Board & Train pup's will be trained using a prong collar.
Don’t be fooled by the look… a prong collar is a safe and effective training tool. Unlike a “choke chain,” a prong collar gives soft, evenly distributed pinches to sides of the neck when pulled against. This was designed to emulate the mother biting him on the neck.
Part of the owner training is learning how to properly size, put on, and utilize the prong collar. The K-9 Academy purchases Herm Sprenger prong collars, and we stand behind their quality.
Let's get down to business...
