REMOTE TRAINING COLLARS

The Most Effective Means To Teach Dogs To Avoid Snakes

INTRODUCING REMOTE TRAINING COLLARS

E-Collars are very misunderstood tools that when used appropriately, can be very effective in teaching your dog when other methods have been proven to not be effective.  When considering the dangers, risks, costs and significant pain/death associated with a snake bite, e-collars have been historically used by qualified trainers to teach dogs to stay away from snakes. It is important to understand there may be a place for e-collars.
