Out of the Blue

I encountered a snag yesterday in my efforts at keeping Hudson the Wonder Dog's occasional dog-aggression curbed using a muzzle. She's not wild about wearing it, but tolerates it for the most part, and it has definitely helped prevent scuffles, but with temperatures around here hitting the 80s lately (we have a brush fire alert today - you'd think it was southern California, or something), the muzzle is impeding her ability to properly pant in the heat. I realized this when I saw her running along with her tongue poking out through the end of the muzzle trying to cool off. I guess I'm going to have to keep her on a leash on really hot days.

I use shock collars on my pooches ("Training Collars" if you want to be PC) and they work great. I rarely ever have to use the shock button, and then only at a low level. Most of the time the "beeps" correct the pooch after they learn the collar.

If you see other dogs approaching and call Hudson back, and she doesn't come, the collars offer additional incentive....which is then rewarded when they get back with a treat... Fairly soon they just listen without a beep or shock needed.

Those are the ones I use since I've got 2 labs and they tend to find ANY water they can. Nice part is that they can control up to 2 collars with 1 remote.
