Welcome to the new year. This week's show we hit a few awesome segments but first we recap this year's Christmas Eve grouse hunt with Andi, Covey, Nick & Huey. We then get into a question from Gunner Kennels about winter training and how to keep your dog sharp as the season gets closed.
Now, the bulk of this show is dedicated to something important so please listen closely. We talk about e collars. Why do we use them at Lone Duck Kennels, what if your dog is "too soft" for one (they aren't), how do you carefully scale pressure to receive the desired response, why we don't like the vibrate option and a lot more. We receive questions all the time about e collars and how people are nervous to use them so hey, let's talk about it.
Let us know what you think of this episode, please. Shoot us a review on iTunes (5 stars would be cool), a DM on Instagram, an email at loneduckpodcast @ gmail . com... whatever works for you. We'd love to chat more about this topic so you can have a happy & healthy dog and feel more confident about training.
