Step One:

Please watch the videos entirely, view prong collar pictures and read prong collar/training tips before you move to Step Two.  As we move forward to the following weeks, please make sure you are watching the right Videos as the Homework Sheets directly correlate with the Video.  Example: Week 1 Videos belong to Week 1 Homework.

We will upload new Homework Videos & Homework Sheets every Friday.  This will give you an opportunity to review over the weekend what we will be working on the coming week. 

 

Please remember to check your private videos also.

Prong Collar Safety

  • Do not leave the prong collar on when your dog is not being watched over

  • Do not leave the prong collar on when your dog is in a crate

  • The prong collar is to fit snug around your dogs neck just below the ears, not hanging loosely around the neck

  • Please check as your dog grows or gains weight as you may need to add links

  • It is recommended your prong collar is always backed up by a carabiner clip and/or prong collar adaptor at all times when in public.  Please see Instructional Pictures

Tips

  • Always remain calm and patient when communicating with your dog

  • Never become angry or frustrated when training.  Walk away and come back to training later

  • Always follow through with what you ask.  Don't request something of your dog and walk away when they don't do it.  BE CONSISTENT

  • Repetition and consistency is the main ingredient

  • Everyone in the home should be on the same page with commands and following through
