Ok, so I successfully used an e-collar on Baira. Barely ever had to use it and she always respnded when I did. I am currently training the puppy, Kassi (7 months) and she's been wearing it out but not done anything with it yet.
Leos on the other hand has started to ignore me, the beeb and the shock. I call, then call and beep, then call beep and short shock, I then call beep and long shock. Nothing, he just ignores me and the shock. He trained well with it and I very rarely had to even use the beep let alone the shock but now even with the shock on it's highest setting (it's been tested so I know it's working) he just ignores it and me.
He was in a wooded area just now, I gave him a long shock on high (after he ignored me a number of times), I even saw his shoulder flinch and he moved his head slightly................ nothing. It just doesn't bother him enough to make him stop what he's doing and come back. He stands and takes it and continues with what he's doing. I am getting very frustrated with him. It gives a heck of a shock but it just doesn't bother him.
I need some advice please as I can see this becoming a problem.
Both dogs are ALWAYS rewarded when they return to me.
I am wondering if i need to go back to tether training him.
