Episode 61 - Questions for Will Wednesday - E-Collars on a Home Dog?

Will gives us good info for home dogs, he gives us some good encouragement on how and when to use e-collars with dogs. Family dogs need the repetition and consistency of training as well; so why not use the e-collar to support that training? Will and Joe discussed 2 different e-collar systems and both are ideal for the home dog with minor to moderate field work, the 1900NCP and the iQPlus; both are reasonable and cost effective, while being tough enough to handle the daily grind and abuse that most of us put our stuff through! Check out the other e-collars here and let us know if we can help you get up and running training your dog for the field, the home, or the hunt!
