      E Collar and Moppy ?

      I am lost here. Gigi had a e collar which we never use. Its by bark buster from amazon. It has a beep , 100 level of vibration and 100 level of shock.

      Gigi is 11 month and very mouth when me and my son are playing or running around making noise. last night i put this on. i have tried using this when she was 6 month once and decided not to as vibration or even shock set at 1 did not make any difference. But we will be dog sitting and the last few times she has become a lot nuttier with the other dog. The dog we sit is a dog we re-homed and is only 10 lbs. His new owner had let me fatten up and he is alot calmer.

      anyway i put it in 40 vibrate and put on her. hit it once to tell her to not bite me.. She has been mopping around and decided no more mouthing and barking . I put the vibrate down to 20. I tried the 40 on my arm and its like vibrate for a older flip phone and now at 20 like a normal cell phone.am i damaging her mental status or its a short term thing and she will be back to her self soon.

      I took the collar off and she was back to nutty gigi after a day. Now we are just have her on the collar and not even have the remote outside. she seems alot of in control with the collar on. maybe i can get a fake one to for her to wear.

      She is 70lbs and quite strong now . She goes to a dog park and runs like crazy for 3 hrs a week and day care. I even walk her in the winter but not like in summer. But she gets a little cabin crazy sometimes and mouthy.

      thanks

      When reading your first note, I was wondering how she had been trained to the collar initially. They have to understand the commands before you put on the collar, it's intended for reinforcement of commands they already know. I'm glad you're going to a class. I would stop using the e-collar for now until you've gone through formal collar training.

      If you are lost I highly recommend waiting for a trainer/training on proper usage of the collar before using it. It's not a put on and push a button sorta thing.

      Definitely never just choose a number and use it on your dog. Even if it feels fine to you, your dog has it's own feelings and sensitivities. You should absolutely consult a trainer on how to use the ecollar because using it like that can most importantly hurt your dog, and secondly ruin the collar's effectiveness.
