Garmin's Guide: How to Prevent Collar-Wise Behavior

In this article Garmin will explain how to prevent your dog from becoming collar-wise using the Garmin Delta and Garmin Delta Sport Collars

Some dogs show “collar-wise” behavior especially in cases when the system is not used as instructed. This behavior happens when the dog only follows commands when wearing the collar. To help prevent this behavior on your dog, you should abide by the following:

  • You should train your dog first without using the collar to correct the dog.

  • Next, put the collar on the dog but don’t switch it on yet. Let him adapt to wearing the collar first before you even introduce the correction.

  • Let your dog wear the collar even if you are not actually doing a training session. This will prevent your dog from thinking that the collar automatically corresponds to training or obedience.

  • Each time your dog obeys a command, give him a praise.
