What is Remote Collar Training?
The No Limitations method, developed by Fred Hassen, uses the newest generation of remote training collars as an electronic cue system that reaches out and touches the dog. The instant communication; the teaching of the language of the collar; and the collar’s sophisticated adjustability for each dog’s sensitivity make this tool – as used with this method – unparalleled for speed, reliability and ease of use.
Concurrent with medical advances such as electronic acupuncture, biofeedback, pain control and healing aids using electrical current, the remote collar is a gentle and effective tool that utilizes a feeling not unlike an electronic “tap.” The tap is unique, minutely adjustable and less forceful than a leash and collar. It’s a feeling that dogs of all sizes, ages and temperaments take to quickly. Not only that, but dogs properly introduced to a collar as a language, not just a correction, will develop deep-seated behavioral changes for the better and can be reliable off-leash in very little time.
This method shows our students how to get their dogs under control and off-leash with unprecedented results in real-life settings with families and distractions. More dogs are being trained around the country with this approach for purposes such as search and rescue/disaster dogs, police canines, service canines, agility, competitive obedience and our everyday pet.

The positive attributes the remote training collar gives us, with proper training, are endless. It truly makes learning easier on the dog.
