1) Transfer of responsibility to the dog.
The goal of our training is not only to get Rugby to follow commands promptly and completely, but also to think for himself. My number one reason for choosing the chain training collar is that when the job is done, the collar comes off and Rugby is just as reliable naked as he was with the collar on.
No dog will be able to back out of or chew through a chain training collar. Being able to maintain control through stressful situations is essential. If the dog can not be trusted off lead, I will not use equipment they can escape from.
3) Immediate Response
Clear communication with the training collar includes quick, short corrections AND immediate release of pressure when the correction is over. When Rugby does not need the extra guidance of the collar, it is loose and light weight around his neck. This also makes the transition to off lead much easier.
Rugby has worn his training collar since he was four months old. I am extremely happy with the results.
I also have to mention that Rugby earned 11 more OTCH points, UDX legs #5 and #6 and another High Combined last weekend. Good boy!
