So this is a dog that was known for running off leash and leaving me into long leashes. After a few E Collar Session, and two long line sessions, he does pretty well and has a very solid recall.

But there is one problem that is notably difficult to fix, it’s the crittering. I read Lou Castle’s Website Info on it and still it is rather difficult. Using the vibration or the shock feature doesn’t do anything to him when he’s focused on a cat. He almost 100% ignores any kind of tension on the e collar. If he isn’t focused on anything he will feel the vibration on him. Maybe the collar isn’t tight enough but something is up.

And he hasn’t been overly reactive lately with dogs, which is good. He does have an aggression towards inact males and several of you said to not use an e collar with that situation. And before y’all point to an old thread of mine, I messed up in the past, I’ll admit to that. He seems to listen to me a bit better when it comes to dogs now.

So yeah, Lobo’s doing pretty well with his off leash training lately, but some of it has been quite difficult.

That's great that Lobo is doing so much better! For the fit of the e-collar, this is from Lou Castle's website:

Fit An Ecollar

The older thread though mainly for a puppy, may give you some tips on training Lobo not to chase cats:

And this thread starting with post #21 is for an adult dog:
