Owners who use the astonishing clemson dog collar may not use it with the strong yanks of a professional trainer. The general dog owner tends to just let the dog pull and because pulling is uncomfortable and even painful to the dog, the dog may pull less. Even when the owner does not use the astonishing clemson dog collar to give jerking corrections, there are still some important pitfalls that owners should be aware of. The biggest pitfall is that if the dog is fearful, say of another dog it sees, and it simultaneously feels the pain of the astonishing clemson dog collar, the dog may learn to associated the pain with the dog it fears and become more fearful of dogs. The second pitfall is that if the dog is highly excited, for instance, it wants to play with another dog and is lunging on the leash to reach the dog, the pain or aversive feeling they get from the collar can increase their excitement and arousal level. In other words it can cause them to bark and lunge more!
Another fact about the astonishing clemson dog collar is that most people use them ineffectively because they are not that easy to use and there are some secrets that the old time professionals used to make them more effective and the correction stronger. First, these professionals make sure the length is right or you won't get the strong, quick pop. If the chain’s too long, when you go to give a correction, there’s too much slack. When it's too short, the collar tightens too quickly, before you’ve gained enough momentum in the jerk. Seasoned trainers also know that dog's feel the correction more if you can keep the astonishing clemson dog collar up high, right behind the ears. That’s how Cesar Milan’s Illusion collar works. It keeps the collar positioned so that a correction can have the greatest effect (e.g. create the most effective jerk). Back when I was competing in obedience we didn't have Illusion collars and they wouldn't be allowed in the ring now anyway, but we did try to keep that astonishing clemson dog collar up high when we were training. A third point, but one that’s the first thing a seasoned professional trains is that the astonishing clemson dog collar has to go on the right way. It needs to form a “P,” with the tail of the “P” on the same side as the handler. You can tell right away when a force-based trainer isn't good at his astonishing clemson dog collar technique because he doesn't even put the collar on correctly.
