Blog friends....do any of you use Martingale collars for your poochies? Our new dog trainer has suggested this for Tucker versus the traditional choke chain. I'm not familiar with them and would love some input. Do you use the Martingale collar with the chain or without? How have you felt about them for training?
I like our new trainer Nobu as he wanted to get to know each of us and our dogs. He asked a lot of questions and gave us some great examples too. He also wasn't in a hurry as we went over our class time by a half hour. It is a different style than what I have known. He called it a "Marker Training". So I am at school too learning a new lesson with Tucker and letting go of some that we have learned from our previous class at doggie school.
In a way we are starting all over. The other two poochies have not had any doggie school and one person wasn't at class today. I'll write more about our class and Tucker's classmates.
Doggie training sure is different since our Annie girl was in school.
