Working on "Heel" command off leash. I have introduced and paired the e collar to him to be off leash trained.. He knows his commands, as well as body language to understand what I am going to do next. I only use the e-collar with low pressure on and off if needs to be reminded of what to do.

Cori was having difficulty walking her two dogs without worrying they would get tangled up with each other, as well as not being able to control them well with individual leashes. I recommended the leash with the coupler for her. There is a swivel at the dogs collars and at handle. This leash and coupler also can be used as an individual leash. As you see it works out much better for all of them.

When you want your dogs in control when someone comes to the door, you need to have a "place" for them to settle and stay calm. In this first this video you will see the dogs are on "place. As the door was opened the dogs are remaining on "place' as the door has been opened. The lawn guy came to the door, rang the doorbell. Before opening the door I placed the dogs on their place, told them to down and stay. I open the door and started talking to Kyle the lawn guy as the dogs remained on place.
Follow up from previous video. The dogs have remained on "place till they hear the release word.
Shadow and I are in a store. He is learning to block, standing behind me while I am checking out at the register to block a lady from getting to close to me.

Of course, it is not all work and no play. You want to let your dogs play and interact with them after a working session. It is a reward for all their hard work!
