Be patient with him. They are usually very intelligent. Never hit him with your hand. You can beat him to death with a limb or post but not your hand. Don't shock him AFTER he's done something wrong but WHILE he is in the process. Good luck.

May be wishful thinking, but I think it's working. The dog rides in the truck, about half the times I head down the driveway. He had gotten to where he wanted to follow the truck, when he wasn't going. I opened the door, and yelled at him, and he kept coming. I hit him with the collar, and he yelped, and sat down. I only had it on 3, it goes up to 8.

Updating this. The shock collar has corrected every bad behavior he had. Twice is the most I have had to shock him. If you sternly say his name, he pretty well quits whatever he is doing. It's a total game changer. Anybody that thinks they may benefit from one, might as well go ahead and get one.

I've been tempted to get one for cows that poke their heads through the fence (barbed wire that's too shorted to to make hot)... I have a couple fantastic cows with some bad habits... I'd set it to 11 right off the get-go of course. These few cows KNOW they aren't supposed to (including walking into the feed bunk), and I can just yell their name and they'll back right out.. they've had a few 2x4's broken across their butt.. but it's just too hard to sneak up on them to get them in the act most of the time, and like with dogs, they have to be caught in the act or it's pointless

Just recently purchased one from GunDogSupply.com for Dave my Australian Shepherd. It's a SportDog SD-825 SportHunter. It has done wonders with Dave. Like a whole completely different dog with it on and it's only on setting #2. It goes from 1-7. He's really smart though he knows when the collar is on he has to be good and obey but when it comes off he's ready to party and do as he pleases. The chasing the dang deer had to come to an end and it has got that done.
