We did the first session today. It went well but I have a few questions:
I have this E Collar https://www.educatorcollars.com/educ...-300-plus.html
with the double boxes and a bungee.
I am using the longer probes that came with it. Fitted high on the neck and the boxes right under the chin.
I tried it on the palm of my hand and I felt it at 15. Using Lou's recall protocol.
We went out with the long leash. Wandered around. Started the process of finding the working level. Till 15 nothing. I am 100% that the contact was good, because at 15, the muscle was moving behind his shoulder from the back. But zero reaction, zero. Until 21 when he turned his head but I am talking about a very slight turn with zero nervousness. No startling, no ear twitch, looking down.
I kept at that level and walked around. When he moved away and I was stationary, I pressed continuous stim, he turned his head to my direction (not right away, after stimming for 1-2 seconds), I pulled on the leash slightly and as he started walking the first steps towards me, I released the button. Did that maybe 10 times. The last couple of times I added "come". When he got to me I gave him a treat.
It was remarkably smooth, he had zero nervousness. Just was being himself. We went to play a bit after and done.
I was surprised that he did not react till 21 while I slightly felt it at 15....Does anyone use this model with the small two boxes?
Any feedback on above much appreciated.
