One thing that gives me pause about the whole e-thing is being overly corrective, basically giving too much aversive stimulus without enough positive reinforcement. I understand that bark collars should be introduced carefully for that reason.
If bark collars really are plug-and-play, I'll just do that and train "by hand" if you will.
But if bark collars are better introduced slowly as training tools, I'm wondering if I might be better served by doing the training e-collar first. If I do that it might negate the need for a bark-specific collar.
I'm sort of lost about all this electronic stuff.
