    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for your feedback, i’m curious as to why you recommend blocking avoidance behaviors? I’ve always been taught that all care must be taken to make sure you don’t make the dog avoidant, but if they do show avoidance type behavior that you should block it so they don’t then think that behavior is keeping them safe. I agree with your “death march” recall never heard it called that before, i like the name :-). My main logic behind the Ecollar was to teach the dog being around me is a safe spot then use the collar to teach the dog to move away from me…

    Patience is something i have 🙂 so defiantly don’t plan on rushing and made sure my last session with her was ended on a high note.

    The breeder hasn’t got a plan as of yet….
