Another fact about the remarkable dog shock collar fence 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 remarkable dog shock collar fence 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 remarkable dog shock collar fence up high when we were training. A third point, but one that’s the first thing a seasoned professional trains is that the remarkable dog shock collar fence 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 remarkable dog shock collar fence technique because he doesn't even put the collar on correctly.
One of the most common alternatives to a collar is a harness. Veterinarians routinely recommend that dogs, such as pugs with their short noses, and miniature poodles with their propensity for collapsing trachea wear harnesses. However, it's important to chose the right one. In general I avoid harnesses that hook on the back unless you want to train your dog to pull a cart or a sled. These harnesses actually help train your dog to ignore you and pull you because when you pull on the leash to try to gain some control, they direct the dog's attention away from you.
