..as an corretion tool on a high drived, tough dog, when you aren´t using an e-collar.

Just curious how you cope with this?

If it's a sport dog...I would use rewards or lack thereof. Possibly a sharpened prong as a reminder or guide...but in any case, a high drive sport dog will respond better to self-learning.

In obedience, I would offer as a reward that which the dog MOST WANTS. In protection, I would remove or take away that which the dog MOST WANTS.

If it's a street dog...I will break him down and rebuild with whatever it takes, while working or training...and I would work on the bond with redoubled effort. I would use LARGE amounts of stress. Environmental stress. In a very tough dog the NEGATIVE effects of stress and compulsion disappear quickly.

Work the dog while he's anxious or scared. Relieve his anxiety when he complies and accepts the stress. Groomed training fields are no good for this.

If it's a young dog you're referring to, maybe it's simply a matter of patience and repetition.

A sport dog works for himself, while a street dog works for me.

Why do you ask?

Pssst...We will all continue to respect you and appreciate you if you admit to having a small problem. :lol: :lol: :lol:

ROFLOL..no that´s not the case...We (Dick and I) were wondering, ´cause we understand the most used correction tools are a normal prong and most of the time an e-collar.

We have a wide range of correctiontools, that we use for certain dogs at a certain time in the learning process. Sometimes 1 at the time, sometimes combined....so we were wondering what else you have in the toolbox that we might not know...

Examples of strong dutch corrections:

- Anne will not go to the beauty parlor today.
- Spike's bedding will not be changed for one week.
- Playing soft Mexican music in the kennels.
- Grooming with a wire brush instead of horse hair.
- Zero mid-morning snacks.

I'm sure there are more. :lol: :lol:
