Don’t Get Married To A Number…
We ventured out of the house with Little Oreo today! He did so good! I was insanely impressed at how he was able to control his cute little wiggle butt from getting out of control with excitement with all of the people walking around.
This sweetie is one of those dogs that wants to say hi to EVERYONE! But guess what, when we’re working, and I’m asking him to do something, he needs to pay attention to the conversation WE’RE having.
How did I manage to break through all of that excitement? The conversation that we normally have indoors with the remote collar (a level 3-4) had to be a bit louder (8-18) depending on the level of distraction.
What’s important to remember is that the numbers on your remote are ALWAYS changing. Getting stuck on one number will set you and your dog up for failure by underwhelming him with an annoying flick on the neck. Your dog will always let you know how loud the conversation needs to be. If a higher number is needed to regain his attention in one instance, be sure to dial back down to a normal level once the coast is clear, and until a louder conversation is needed once again.
