Add Remote Training Collar Enhancement to your Phase I program:

"The remote training collar enhances all trained behaviors by creating a stereotype signal across the spectrum of all handlers. After all, the collar doesn't care whose finger presses the stimulus button. The input your dog receives is the same from everyone who gives a command. This effectively compensates for any power disparities or any inadequacies in handler skills within the family. What's neat is the haptic signal your dog receives that creates incredible reliability is lower than what most people feel when they receive a text or call when their cell phone is in the silent mode! I wouldn't think of owning a dog without remote collar training. It is that impactful. The remote training collar provided with remote collar enhancement is the same one that I use for training my dogs. It is rechargeable, waterproof, and has 100 levels of stimulation. It also has a boost button, and a strobe light capability for night time use. Best of all, your dog does not have to wear it all the time, especially after your dog reaches a high level of performance."
