so I'm doing my corrections at about half of what they would have been if I'd done them with one hand.... He jumps back, and then turns and looks shocked and mournfully at me.
I even tested him at work where the smells are insane and the kitchen is a mix of spare kibble and food scraps on the floor, and he's awesome!
Is it ok to leave it on them for that long before I go out?? I had worried about leaving it on him at all when we weren't training or walking. It can't be too comfy...
The trainer suggested too that I might eventually be able to switch him off it... I'm not so sure
The Bull in Pit Bull is really a great description of him
This lady was so nice, I asked her if she might do a session with us on proper corrections for it, and she said she'd love to take my money but it was actually quie easy. She then proceeded to answer at least 6 questions from me
She also has a class for aggressive dogs, and mentioned that she uses nice methods to work with them...
I really want to make sure he does not become immune to this, so any preventative tips here would be awesome
oh, how tight is tight? His doesn't slip all the way down his neck (it stays within an inch or 2 of its ideal spot) and can slide around his neck a little. The trainer we were speaking with did fit a smaller one on him, but she suggested I add 3 links. I bought the second to smallest link size, BTW, and then bought 3 additional links.
