When Not to Use an e-Collar
Does your dog have a medical condition?
If your dog has a medical condition, such as a heart problem, it is essential that you seek advice from your veterinary specialist, before starting any training with an active collar.
Does your dog have a nervous disposition?
If your dog is of a nervous disposition be sure to check the effect of the stimulation while the dog is on a secure line or in a safe area. Training should cease if there are any signs of trauma.
How old is your dog?
Do not use a remote trainer on a dog less than six months of age for any reason. Never use it on a dog younger than about ten months old for obedience training, since it must first understand completely the command that you give before you make any attempt to correct using the stimulus.
Does your dog have an injury?
If your dog has an injury, they need to focus on healing and are likely not to respond appropriately to an electronic training collar.
Is your dog pregnant or nursing?
Pregnant or nursing dogs need all the strength they can get as their nutritional needs increase dramatically. Avoid adding any additional stresses to the dogs situation by adding e-collar training.
