We did a lot of loose leash stuff....1/4 turns, slow heeling in the house with emphasis on attention, etc., two down stays, a sit stay and a stand stay. A pretty light day. The E-collar I ordered came today. I'm just going to have her wear it at times for the next few days, without turning it on. I'll put it on before we take our walk after I finish typing this. To those of you who have used these....short contact points, or long with a Golden? I bought a Tri-Tronics. By the way, I shocked myself dozens of times to see what it feels like. The dial goes up to 5 in half step increments. In other words, 10 levels. Made it all the way up to 4. Wow. We won't be using that level with Bella. 1.5 to 2 will probably do it. Feels like a tickle. Even my 8 yr old daughter was able to keep her hand on it at 2. It definitely gets your attention, but doesn't hurt one bit.
