Rex learned that the hard way. His dog's were such pigs, some thought they should be dropped for lack of style. That's where the term the "Escalon Shuffle" came from. I understand that years later, he reversed his theory of precision and his dog's began to look happy and run. Of course, once a dog got a look at CL II, there wasn't much to be happy about!!!!!
The collar would probably have grown even faster in popularity than it did except the belief was, that you created electric pigs with it. All of you have to understand that in those days there was no variable intensity. It took a very good and knowledgable trainer to get the most out of a dog and still run a happy dog when hitting him every correction with 10,000 volts.
But that was the thing about Rex; he invented, he learned, he changed, he corrected. He never stopped the innovations in training. Thank You Major Carr.
I hate seeing a game bird die of natural causes, unless I naturally cause it.
