For a dog like Murray this is a game changer because he tends to be what I call “leash lazy” meaning he will let the leash do as much of the work as he can get away with. If his handler will let him pull he will pull. If his handler will hold him back in the Heel position he will let them. The remote collar forces Murray to do all of the restraint himself and thus he is doing a LOT more work and it has already made a big difference in his obedience. I’m excited for what the rest of the week holds in store for him.
Oh and being “off-leash” is a ton of fun because he gets to run in huge circles all over the yard and play fetch without being on a cord. So it was a happy day for Murray all around.
