Whoa Post?

Post by reba » Wed Jan 13, 2021 3:21 pm

When using a "whoa post" what is the proper collar to use?

I wonder if you can even buy the "pinch collar" of the style that Delmar used.

Yes, but it doesn't work with a whoa post.

I believe you could also use a prong collar. Same principle, similar effect.

I don't see why it wouldn't work if that is what you already have.

I actually think an e-collar might work with the whoa post...but your timing would have to be spot on. Mine ain't that good.

This would be the problem with the e-collar and the whoa post - timing. Not so much with the on button, but moreso on the release.

I must confess I didn't watch the entirety of the video, but I did read the transcript. I didn't see anything about the use of a post - my quick take on it is that they taught whoa with the half-hitch and were now transitioning the collar as a replacement for the half hitch to enforce whoa at a distance.

I don't generally use a whoa post for steadying and the method I learned was different than the Huntsmith method you posted.

Thank you for sharing. Always nice to learn another way to get something done. One more tool for the toolbox.

Thanks again.

I generally start em on a training table.
They tend to be timid on the raised platform so don't immediately jump around. Work slowly standing them and styling them up rewarding wath gentle strokes over their cape when they stand still.
The finished dogs jump up and stand on their own waiting for the bell to be put on before they get to run.
The tailgate of a pick-up works as well.
