Hi Benny,

A good trainer will help you get a solid recall and help you get a good "leave it" command. I would not use an e-collar unless a professional trainers shows you how to use it and evaluates if it the correct tool for your dog.

My dog used to want to chase small animals too but with persistent, consistent training he now leaves them alone.

Well in the next few weeks when I return to a solid routine with work, I will look for a local trainer that could possibly help my situation.

Thanks all for your advice and taking the time to respond so quickly. Can see already that this forum is going to be a great tool in helping raise my first gsd!
