Remote collar Training Workshop
See what folks are saying about the seminars
One of the most misunderstood pieces of dog training equipment will be explained and used all weekend on the dogs in attendance. We have a great layering system that involves food, leash, training collar and remote so dogs get excited when they see the remote collar.
Often called “shock collars” and demonized in the dog training world. Find out why more and more people are starting to use remote collars to train their dogs, as the technology is changes as well as the training style changes so the dog and the handler have a very clear understanding of not just the technology but also of the training.
We do not look at the remote collar as the last choice but the best choice and the first choice. For puppies as young as 14 weeks to the most nervous and aggressive dogs it is not only a off leash training tool, but a rehab and state of mind tool that can actually destress, relax and whisper to a dog in order to change the dogs state of mind.
We take the mystery out of the training as many folks feel the remote collar is a complicated piece of training equipment, with our pressure on/off training system we make it very easy for you, the dog handler and the dog to understand the training.
The wonders of a remote collar to communicate what you want up to 1 mile away with a whisper or a shout is an incredible way to build a great relationship with your dog.
With this 2 day seminar which is geared for dog owners and dog trainers who have never used a remote collar to folks who have been using them, but want to either brush up on their skills or clean up some mistakes they have made with them. These seminars are geared towards both dog owners and dog trainers.

Remote collars are some of the best tools to eliminate jumping, barking, biting, resource guarding, barrier aggression, and dog and human aggression.
Learn how remote collars are one of the best tools to eliminate separation anxiety.
