German Shepherds wear Electronic collars
For training, my German Shepherds wear electronic collars, like the orange one in this picture. Meet, Godzilla, my 3-year-old male. He has 100 % traceable German bloodline in his pedigree. His sire is a German import named Rex. Rex is a 100-pound black-and-tan and he lives in Texas now. His dam (mother) passed away when Godzilla was a puppy. Her parents were both from Germany and her sire was a champion and Schutzhund level 111.
Godzilla comes from very well bred bloodlines and superior health. His hips and elbows passed OFA X-rays. He is a loving boy and a fantastic watch dog. Godzilla has very even temperament. His playmate, Tangiers, is a bit moody and edgy; she is his sister. I often use my alpha voice on her as she is strong willed. They play very rough with each other and Godzilla often lets her win the wrestling matches. When he has had enough he lets her know with a verbal warning to back off. He acts like a puppy with me and loves to go anywhere in the car. Everyone who meets Godzilla absolutely loves him.
