When I first started training with
Terry, I wasn't sure if it was the right training for my
situation. We had adopted a 2 year old Bichon Frise that
never had any kind of training and was basically out of
control ... biting when you tried to take something away
from her and never listening to anyone.
When we started using the e-collar,
Penny rebelled by going to sleep and not wanting to do anything.
I felt sorry for her, so I stopped the training and she
became even more aggressive. But I listened to Terry when
she told me to continue using the collar full-time for a
couple of days. Sure enough, once Penny realized that I
was in charge, she made a complete turnaround. Now, she
comes immediately when called and responds to the 'off'
command when she is getting into something that she shouldn't.
