E-collar Street Tactics (E-collar) is a five-day hands-on training course designed to teach each handler the proper use of an electronic collar. E.S.T. adds additional level of control whether on or off lead. The E.S.T. begins with basic obedience used as a foundation to achieve our goal of off lead control. This E.S.T. progresses by using building block components to advance the K9 teams making a more proficient and effective way of performing K9 operations. With the ability to have your K9 off lead provides a better tactical advantage making it safer for you and other officers. The E-collar also allows our trainers instruct the handlers how to correct issues outing of a toy, recall the K9 to the Handler, obedience and verbal out off of a physical apprehension.
