E-Touch Method™ Humane?
Absolutely. It is one of the most humane dog training systems available. It is more gentle than most other training devices as it delivers almost no kinetic energy into your dog's neck. We use only professional quality collars, invented by Martin Deeley, that have many safety features to prevent accidental injury.
E-Touch Method™, developed by Martin Deeley, "is not a magic method it is a catalyst which can be incorporated within training approaches to train even better. In training a dog we may use food, verbal rewards, tactile rewards, or whatever. The e-collar is a tool that can be added to the mixture to create something special. BUT the main principles of good dog training do not disappear, we stay creative, we do not depend on the e-collar for everything, there is no one best approach, it is not a race to see who can train the fastest. And most of all we work within the temperament and pace of the dog – reading the dog, and by doing so maintaining a true companion relationship is essential. We want a dog that will be a dog, will make decisions, and basically acts as a dog while remaining a partner and companion." –Martin Deeley often."
I asked her about it and its not a requirement for any dog and its an option and not mandatory.
So, just don't assume that ALL of the training is done that way. You just saw that its one of the methods on her site and automatically said -- OH NO.. electronic collars and you plan on training your dog w/ that.... NO.. We already had 1 lesson and I'm using his halt and he's responding quite well...
