Got too ask , did you condition your dog too the collar before you gave her the shock . I know water dog doesn't cover how too use the e-collar . If you didn't , the reason she didn't response well is because she was confused . Their are steps to using the collar and if you go about it wrong , you could ruin your dog . Really suggest you find a retriever club or someone to show you the ropes . Leave the collar alone for now . Where do you live , someone here might tell you where to go or better yet , take you under their wing . Seen it happen on this chat many times .pollard22 wrote:I used the "water dog" program. I tried the small shock with the collar to encourage here and she didn't respond well to that. I would also better describe her return as half lolly gagging and just taking her time
