Re: Age and Snake Avoidance Training

We had our Britt done at 4 months. We also had the 9 yr old done ... again for the 6th time. He FINALLY did not go in on the snake. Maybe there is hope for the old goats!

Re: Tone and vibrate commands

I picked up a used collar/transmitter for cheap that has the Tone, Vibrate, Momentary Stimulate functions. My 15 yr old Britt is deaf and was hoping to use it. He never has needed stimulus except on chasing game. The younger Britt is nine and I put it on him to discourage eating poop. Trying it out,...

Re: Hunt with or without e collar

The collar was for my peace of mind more than anything. Several times I found out after the fact, that I forgot to turn it on. When I got my 2nd set of e-collars that had the little tone, I almost exclusively used the tone function after that -- dogs hated the loud beeper. The only time I found that...
