$219.00$349.00

The ET-400 Series training collar by E-Collar Technologies is a perfect option for Great Dane owners that need a little more range (3/4 mile) than what is offered by the ET-300/Mini-Educator.

Imagine off-leash freedom with your Great Dane, knowing that your dog will come back to you, with enthusiasm, every time! Choose a one-dog or two-dog training system in the drop down (these training collars are appropriate for any dog, even small ones!)

When used properly, a quality e-collar is humane and can put a stop to dangerous and annoying problem behaviors such as lunging, barking, counter-surfing and jumping the fence. Read below for more information about e-collar training! Free resources are coming soon.

The Educator 400 series is NOT a shock collar! When you invest in a proper E-Collar to communicate with your dog, you are investing in a tool that is built with quality and consistency in mind.

Inexpensive mass-produced 'shock collars' (even the ones from pet stores) can harm your dog, hurt your relationship with your dog and cause fear, aggression, confusion and frustration. We ONLY recommend the use of quality e-collars for dog training, never shock collars.

You may be able to purchase these for less elsewhere, however we guarantee to send you the LATEST model directly from the manufacturer, not one that's been sitting in a warehouse. In addition, we are here for you to be a resource for all things e-collar, Great Danes and training!

e-collar for Great Danes

E-COLLAR FAQ

WHAT ARE SOME THINGS I CAN TEACH MY DOG USING THE MINI-EDUCATOR?

The most awesome benefit of e-collar training is off-leash reliability.

The e-collar can also help you strengthen positive behaviors such as staying in place, not crossing a boundary into the street and waiting calmly while a dog walks by.

With proper use, the e-collar can put a permanent stop to problem behaviors such as lunging, nuisance barking, fence jumping, running away and counter-surfing.

IS THIS A SHOCK COLLAR?

No! A shock collar delivers a big ouch, just like a cattle prod or touching a hot electric wire might. When you see people using shock collars on their dogs, you often see or hear the dog yelp, startle, or show signs of distress (including ears pinned, lip licking, panting, ‘hitting the ground’, and cowering).

Training should never be painful and the goal should never be to hurt, scare or harm your dog. At Hello Danes, we do NOT condone or support the practice of using junk shock collars to stop problem behaviors. 

An e-collar, such as the Mini-Educator, on the other hand, delivers a blunt stimulation. Have you ever put your tongue on a 9-volt battery, or experienced the sensation from a tens-unit at the doctors or chiropractors office? It makes the muscle twitch or tickle, which is VERY different than being outright zapped.

That is what the e-collar does, and it is also the reason that they cost more than shock collars.

WILL THIS HURT MY DOG?

There are a million things around your home that can hurt your dog!

The stim from a quality e-collar should never hurt, and as a matter of fact, proper e-collar training can stop dangerous behaviors (such as running into the street or stealing grapes off the counter) that WILL hurt your dog!

When you receive your e-collar in the mail, we highly recommend using it on yourself to feel and understand the sensation. The remote on the Mini-Educator allows you to change the intensity of the stimulation from 1 – 100, and many people don’t even feel the stimulation until they try it at a level 8 or higher.

A lot of dogs ‘work’ and respond to the stim at levels below 10. Imagine reliably, quickly and humanely training your dog with something that you cannot even feel! 

We will say this again and again. Proper e-collars and proper e-collar training should not hurt.

WHAT DOES E-COLLAR TRAINING LOOK LIKE? HOW DO I GET STARTED?

We will be releasing some helpful online education for this soon, but in the meanwhile, think of your new e-collar this way.

Stim = good things!

Your first step is to find what level your dog feels the stim at. You want the lowest level you can find where they twitch their ear or turn their head looking for the strange new feeling. For many dogs, this level is less than 10! 

Once you have that, stim…treat. Stim…treat. Stim…praise. Stim…fun.

Stim = GOOD things (praise, treats, games), not stim = punishment. When the stim = good things, you teach your dog that the stim = redirect back to you, every time. It’s so simple and so powerful! With time, your dog learns what turns the stim sensation on and off, opening up a huge world of opportunity for you and your dog.

When the time comes to use the sensation as a ‘correction’ or to aid in recall, the dog knows exactly what to do. 

While you wait for your e-collar to come in the mail (we ship quickly!), we recommend the following books on Amazon/Kindle:

E-Collar Training for Pet Dogs by Ted Efthymiadi: https://amzn.to/3hu8a2x

 

IS THE MINI-EDUCATOR WATERPROOF?

Yes, the Mini-Educator is waterproof and impact-resistant. The remote is too, making this the perfect rugged tool for all of your adventures on land or in the water.

CAN I USE AN E-COLLAR TO STOP AGGRESSION?

If your dog is aggressive, it’s especially important that you seek the guidance of a highly qualified dog trainer. (See our growing registry of ethical Great Dane Trainers, e-collar or otherwise, by clicking here: https://www.hellodanes.com/find-a-great-dane-trainer/)

An ethical e-collar trainer will first address basic training issues with positive reinforcement, address medical issues, fear, and anxiety, build on e-collar skills and overall confidence, and help you manage the environment to avoid situations that tend to trigger aggression. 

If you have a dog that is showing aggression or significant amounts of fear in any form, we do NOT recommend slapping a collar on them and being ready to hit the button when they act up. Doing so is NOT appropriate training OR e-collar training and can make behaviors worse.

Please work with a trainer if your dog is aggressive, and especially if they are fearful and willing to bite and inflict injury on dogs or people. 

WHAT IF I USED A SHOCK COLLAR OR ELECTRIC FENCE IN THE PAST?

If you used a shock collar in the past, the transition to the e-collar is a wonderful step in the right direction.

We recommend using a lot of positive reinforcement and introducing the e-collar sensation as a positive thing, not a punishment thing. This simple change in your approach is going to provide you with amazing results! 

CAN THIS BE USED ON OLDER OR STUBBORN DOGS?

Yes, absolutely!

Dogs can benefit from humane e-collar training at any age, no matter how ingrained some of those bad habits (including running off!) are. 

CAN I USE THIS AS AN ELECTRIC FENCE?

A traditional electric fence is fully-automated and most systems rely on shock, not muscle stimulation. 

For this reason, electric fences are known to encourage ‘barrier frustration’, ‘fence fighting’ and reactivity while on the property. 

While an e-collar is NOT automated for you, you can absolutely use it to teach boundaries. With a combination of positive reinforcement (‘good things happen when you stay in the yard‘) and boundary training using an e-collar, you can can teach your dog to stay on the lawn AND ignore people and dogs walking by.

As always, no fence (either virtual or real) is 100% secure, and it’s up to you to both spend the time on training, and to know your dog very well. 

WHAT IF I HAVE MULTIPLE DOGS?

Awesome! We love having multiple dogs. 

We offer a range of e-collar solutions from E-Collar Technologies with remotes that function for 1, 2, 3 or 4 dogs. On the remote, each dog has their own stim button, allowing you to control each dog independently.

See our e-collar category for more options including multi-dog systems and systems with a longer range. 

WILL I BE ABLE TO CHANGE THE BIOTHANE STRAP?

Yes, absolutely! We offer a range of biothane straps directly from e-collar technologies.

We also recommend shopping at Beau & Nora for beautiful, custom biothane e-collar straps, made with Great Danes in mind!
