Option Overload? Never Fear!
Let Us Walk you through the basics
Depending on which e collar you choose, there can be a lot of bells and whistles, buttons and functions. If you’re like me, technology can be daunting. I’ve spent inordinate amounts of time on YouTube and Google just figuring out one thing I needed a piece of software to do. Don’t despair, once you understand their functions and how to use them, the e collar is an invaluable tool.
This blog, and it’s accompanying video, are here to walk you through the basic mechanics of the E Collar Technologies Mini Educator (ET-300) and Educator (ET-400). The basic concepts and functions are the same with any E Collar Technologies and Dogtra collars, just the design is different. Due to how we use these collars at K9 Heights, despite the number of buttons, once you understand what everything does, its use is as simple as turning it on and using a single button and a dial. That’s it.
The More You Know
I always encourage clients, and make it mandatory for my trainers, to sit down with the collar and read through the instruction manual, familiarizing themselves with each mechanic and function as they go. This is a huge help towards getting comfortable with the use of your e collar.

Learning the Terminology
In my next blog, we will begin demonstrating how we do the e collar introduction, covering how to properly size the collar, how to find your dog’s “working level”, and what exercises we use.
