I have tried everything to get my German Shepherd to walk to heal, been to classes, train the trainer classes, countless collars and harnesses, sound commands, growls, barks, deep voices, amongst the normal treats. Absolutely nothing makes him walk properly, just pulls all of the time.
The other problem I have had with the dog is a sudden tendancy to scarper off at a moments notice, when a rabbit jumps out in front of him or he hears another dog around a blind corner, sometimes a swift shout would halt his run but not always leading to some uncomfortable encounters with other walkers who always assume a shepherd is a nasty dog - this may happen in the middle of nowhere on our daily walks so cannot be preempted all of the time.
This product surpassed all expectations and has delivered results that have not been acheived in two years of going to training classes etc. I wanted to break the cycle of the run offs, and sure enough next walk he had started pounding towards another walker, I used the collar and shouted 'Come' immediatly he stopped, turned and came back. he needed one more rehersal and now a few days later he comes back for praise with no use of the collar, no more running off and as a bonus when a rabbbit jumps up I tell him its ok and he will chase that for a bit, as soon as I call him back he comes, almost saintly amazing.
The lead walking was delt with on the first walk, as soon as he reached the end of the lead for his normal 'pull' a used the collar, straight away he came back off the end and walked next to me for praise, now when he is next to me he gets praise, the lead walk has turned from a chore into a pleasure for both me and the Shepherd. It just took three uses.
Within one week he is now also walking to perfect heal without the lead without even trying to run off or get in front or lag behind. all he ever gets is praise. He now performs these commands like all the others that he has know for a long time and performs perfectly.
This collar has literally changed my dogs life, he has always been perfect in the garden and around the home as well as without disterbance on walks or being on the lead, now he is quite literally perfect.
My thanks go to this product at such an amazing price and so much better than the many hundreds shelled out for things like gentle leaders and such, within a week, no need for anything other than his normal collar and lead. Amazing. Although I still keep this electro collar on for peace of mind I have not hat to use it since the start, my commands now work perfectly.
