Actually I have a dog that was trained on an ecollar and he's perfectly happy. (He also passed his CGC without the collar). The problem isn't the collar it's the people using them. But i have seen MANY articles on this site slamming anything that isn't in line with their training methods. I have also seen dogs that were EXACTLY like this one without ever having an ecollar put on them, and funny that, my ecollar trainers saved one of them and she lives a perfectly happy life with multiple dogs now. Without an ecollar. No one method works for ALL dogs, but that isn't what these trainers would have you believe. And yes, writing a story about a dog that was euthanized and tacking a sales pitch on the end is gross in my opinion (which I'm still entitled too).
Such a sad, sad story. For myself, I wouldn't trust "residential placement" for dog training. So much of the training is for the human(s), not the dog. Dogs rarely need "fixing", but, rather, their humans need to learn how to interact with the dog.

Why Should I Train My Dog?
Before you choose a dog trainer, ask yourself these questions: What do I want my dog to achieve? What behavior do I want my dog to stop? What happens when my dog gets it right? What happens when my dog gets it wrong? Her amazing dog training skills helped her be hired at the animal shelter to head the PIT CREW, working with larger dogs teaching them skills to help them become adoptable. She also was given the task of going to visit a home that had a new dog adoption to help with the settling in process. Bridget also gave other foster homes support when needed, whether it be the foster dog being introduced to the other animals in the household, to training the foster parent and animal. She was great at evaluating a dog to find out what the dog’s particular issues were. I watched her do this with two pitbulls in my backyard.Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Certified AKC Advanced CGC Certified AKC Star Puppy Certified Mentor (ABC) Professional Member of Proud Member of the Official Trainer for a Please take a few minutes to browse my site and then call or email me to schedule your training session. .Bridgett came directly to my house to work with us. I don’t recall the exact number of sessions that we worked together but I believe it to have been less than a dozen. I always felt that she was training me so that I could train him, and she did an incredible job. It was all about patience and positive reinforcement. She got together with us once every 2 to 3 weeks and I just did my homework in between. Every session included handouts and good explanations. To say the least I went from a dog that was semi-uncontrollable to a dog that I have no concerns with being around small children and babies. He is even able to be around my dad’s cat, which I thought never would happen.
