"If I lived on acreage, I would absolutely use one (if needed; some dogs would never need it) to train a dog to stay off a road. I would also use one on a car-chaser, a door-bolter, or something else that put the dog at risk. One other thing to…"

"Agreed, agreed. My goodness, I didn't man to rile up such a fuss, lol. But I do appreciate all the comments and I am not taking such a decision lightly because it is a behavior altering device and I don't want to use it in a negatively…"

"Emotional, or rather they are very sensitive to physical corrections or loud verbal corrections, to people arguing, to changes in their routine or environment. They are a herder, selected for a thousand years to instantly notice anything different…"

"I'm sorry, I guess I did not define my terms. I am referring to Positive Punishment as the term is used in operant conditioning. Punishment is any action taken that reduces the likelihood of a behavior's occurrence, also referred to as an…"

Mary Adams replied to Mary Adams's discussion Electronic training collars
"A lot of collars have at least 400yds of range and the more advance ones can go up to 2-3 miles, which is pretty handy in my opinion. And if the dog is wearing the collar then it only makes sense to have the controller in hand as well, or at least…"

"Personally I would never use any type of shock collars on my dogs. They are just way too sensitive and smart IMO. Heck once I accidentally kicked my pem in my sleep, and he wouldn't come to bed with me for 2 weeks after that! I guess I just…"

"While a whistle would work for simple come commands, it wouldn't deter him from running across the street for example. A properly used e-collar with a well-trained dog keeps them safe in unsafe situations. As I said before, it would not be used…"

Beth replied to Mary Adams's discussion Electronic training collars
"That makes more sense, but you still should not punish or reward when the dog is out of sight, as you are simply punishing or rewarding random behavior that you can't see, so you would have no way of knowing what you are rewarding and it may…"

"Well first of all, let my clear up my statement: I don't want to use it as a negative reinforcement. His mannerisms are very mild so I would have little use for "shocking" him in most situations. Most collars, including the Dogtra…"

Bev Levy replied to Mary Adams's discussion Electronic training collars
"I would never use a collar that gives a shock of any kind on a corgi. Many breeds of dogs, corgis being one, are too sensitive. Also if he can not see or hear you, I do not see how it will help him mind better. It would be better to find a trainer…"

Beth replied to Mary Adams's discussion Electronic training collars
"If you are referring to an alert collar that has a beeper, and the dog is trained to the beeper the same way a dog is trained to a clicker, then I have no experience with those and they are mostly harmless. For a traditional e-collar that delivers…"

My name is Mary and I am 24 years old.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
No
About My Corgi(s):
I have a three year old Cardigan Welsh Corgi mix named Dexter. I rescued him from my local shelter in November of 08 after I learned that his time was nearly up. He is an intelligent, playful, funny and often troublesome little scamp, but I love him to death. His top favorite things are: his dog bed, fairy toy and Blue, my family's one year old Great Dane.
I have:

Mine was the same, I have a little corgi mix, and he Rules the house with his fake innocents. Like the dust bunnies took off with my clogs. But they are wonderful!

Your corgi mix is absolutely adorable. I love his face, so expressive!
