First lose this trainer. Anyone who tells you to whip a dog has not kept up with training in the last 25 years.
Second, using an Ecollar at the levels that you describe to punish this behavior, can easily backfire and make the problem worse.
Third, look at this protocol. Game Chasing (Crittering) It has failed me only once, and that was when the owner refused to do his homework.

If you have to beat the dog, to get it to obey, than its the wrong match.
I think in your post it does say it all. You told the dog to do something repeatedly. Your first trainer should have nipped that in the bud. Repeating commands TEACHES the dog to ignore you. Don't do that. Tell the dog once, and then help him if he does not comply.
You can beat your dog or whip your dog, but if you do not improve your own leadership, your consistency and your timing, then, all you are going to do is increase the level of force needed to manage your dog. Striking the dog alone is not going to give you a well-trained dog.
If your k9-training dog trainer teaches you some basic rules in how to train. Like don't repeat commands. Don't give commands you cannot enforce immediately. Start and end training on an upbeat positive not. Praise your dog when he is doing what you want. And so forth.

Yes, yes and yes.
[QUOTE=Ba_reefer;5543857Question: Do you guys whip the dog with the end of the leash?
Do you guys do it in public?
If so what do you say when people criticize you?[/QUOTE]
It's not an everyday thing, but once in a long while the dog does something aggressive towards man or dog that is extreme and deserves immediate employment of the leash across his shoulders.
That stops every bad behavior and re-establishes my position as his superior.
I've never had anyone who witnessed this discipline complain as it's only employed when the dog is very clearly out of line and dangerous. Their silence implies consent.

|Baillif||Your trainer doesn't know what he is doing. Send me a pm and I'll tell you how to fix it.|

i started at buy using the warning button first which sends a vibration. if it looks like he is going to engage in something bad. if he does with the warning i send a nick at the lowest setting i never use the contn. function. then increase the setting as needed. but i always use the warning first

|Baillif||You went up to 60 and said the dog wasn't responding but the iq has 100 levels and the NCPs have 127 so...yeah.|

no offense taken, thanks for the reply, Just to be clear everything i have used was recommended by a trainer and the trainers taught me how they should be used. They all work temperately and Cody seems ignore the corrections. The reason im asking is because havent heard about this kind of correction and want to learn about whats other methods people use. I am obviously being fair and the trainer explained all the steps in helping cody understand its not a punishment but more of understanding whats wrong and right.
