|You need a 'look at me' command... so a vibrating e-collar is a great idea. Otherwise, your dog is far better tuned to read what you are saying via posture, motion and gesture than via spoken word.
In the obedience world, non-verbal control of your dog is considered more advanced. That is NOT because it's harder for the dog to understand We have a hard time throwing consistent signals... making it hard for our pup, that is reading our posture and motions, to sort out just what we are trying to communicate. Make your signals bold and consistent... but be aware of your whole body posture and movement. Your pup will be impressed at the clarity of you communication.
