Training Questionnaire – Please submit a training questionnaire and I will promptly call you (or email if you prefer) so we can discuss your dog training needs.

E-Collar Training

E-collar Training First Lesson – Once we assess your dogs base level of understanding of commands we will then go over set up, proper fit, introduce your dog to the e-collar by establishing a low working level, and then layering that stimulation level into commands that the dog already knows (such as Come, Heel, Down). We will also discuss and practice the proper way to use the e-collar when the goal is to extinguish behaviors (chasing chickens, fence fighting, and counter surfing).

Session lasts about 3+ hours
Session Fee: $450 *includes Mini Educator E-collar and belt clip

I prefer to use E-Collars from E-Collar Technologies. This training provides state-of-the-art, low-level, communication-style E-Collar training. Contemporary E-Collar Training utilizes the softest, most gentle remote communication, and is one of the most humane and effective approaches to dog training available! These collars use TENS Unit technology, the same muscle stimulation used by chiropractors and physical therapist. The settings range from 1-100 which translates into being able to apply sensations that are soft pressure or sensations that are stronger when something more aversive is needed.

E-collar Training Follow-up Lesson – This can either be a Follow-up session in your home or a Field Trip style session where we meet in a public setting or other environments that challenge you and your dog.

Session lasts 2+ hours
Session Fee: $150

*charges may be applied for travel outside the Placer County area (usually $25 to $100 depending on mileage and drive time).
