There is a lot of confusion about the best equipment for dog Obedience Training
In my opinion you are wasting your time if you do not use a pinch, or training collar.
Your dog will do anything you want them to do
IF THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WANT
This means you have to communicate with them...So HOW do you do that?
with a Pinch Collar
Poor or Useless Training Equipment

StarMark Training Collar
This is the collar, size small, we are currently using on our Chocolate Labrador puppy.
Notice how the 'corrections' are quick and do not last...a simple jerk does the trick!
