Where do I say “The one dog I used one on”?
I have for a number of years had a very close association with Dogtra. Both Dogtra Europe and Dogtra USA.
I speak to dog owners every day who are purchasing e-collars. Several a week!
For a number of years I have run Dogtra U.K.
I know what breeds of dogs get them ordered for the most and I know the circumstances which have brought owners to the decision of spending hundreds of pounds to have the ultimate in off leash control.
I have sold to famous dog trainers, police dog handlers, mountain rescue, special forces, veterinary surgeries and elderly ladies with wayward mastiffs.
Personally I have a background in gun dogs, ran a breeding program for a police force and have supplied dogs to over a dozen police forces in both the UK and abroad. I have also competed in KNPV and protection dog trials the U.K. and Holland with my Belgian Malinois.
From approximately 2000 until closing my kennels in 2012 I visited 90% of the owners of FTCH stud dogs in the U.K. focussing on working cockers and springers.
So I think I have more than a fair grasp of e-collar use in the U.K. and I can assure you that the many stud dog owners who were happy to take thousands of pounds from me were more than candid when chatting about their training practices.
Today I spoke to a chap who was anti e-collar, that is until the police slapped a behaviour order on his dog for killing several sheep. He had sought out the farmer and the farmer had refused any compensation and reported him to the police.
This chap was ashamed at the depths of depravity he had sunk to in order to let his dog have a run off leash and be secure in the knowledge he had control. But like many others, in a couple of weeks time he will be wondering what all the fuss was about and happily walking his dog off leash.
A ban on e-collars will be a very sad day for thousands of dogs in the U.K. who will be resigned to a life in rescue shelters or euthanised because some dogs just really aren’t that fussed about liver treats.
The one dog I used one on exactly as ì wrote . ! Most folks who buy them do not understand how to use tgem and are way too soft to use tgem on their own self I did before I would put is on tge 1 dog in question . I don't think I ever tested it was working with the light
It did quit the sheep but had to be euthanised later for serious human aggression issues . I don't tend to give up easy !
Repeate if a dog cannot be trained by normal means it should never enter the gene pool . Our ansestors we can thank for leaving the UK with gundogs as good and in most cases the worlds best gundogs !
