Collars for training

I just wondered what type of collar you all use for on leash training for your Irish Setter?

Profile Information

How many Irish Setters do you have?
How long have you owned Irish Setters?
I have been owned by Irish Setter's since 1973
About Me:
We got our first Irish Setter, Shilo, back in 1973 ...knowing nothing of the breed but soon fell in love with our boy...and since then we have had 5 more males....we lost our last old gentleman Irish in 2008 and our inherited rescue Brittany a month later and husband said NO MORE DOGS !! Well , in June of 2009 I talked him into letting me rescue an itsy, bitsy dog but the more I looked the more I knew my heart was truly with my Irish Setters....then one night watching the Cardinal's Baseball game ....they had the Purina Pro Dog of the week looking for a home....a young female Irish Setter named Heidi ( on You Tube under Heidi the Irish Setter) and to make a long story short ....Heidi has become our Miss Molly ! Wee bit wild at first but was out of crate even when we were not home within 3 months, Miss Molly has just been an awesome Irish for us....have ran out of tricks to teach her....and she sure changed my mind about insisting on always having a male dog! I had always gotten Irish puppies around 12 weeks old before but after being owned by Miss Molly ....I would search for a rescue dog as she has just been so easy to train and fit into our lives. The only thing I wish we did know was what her pedigree was . I still miss my boys but Miss Molly sure healed a lot of aching hearts in our home.

we have Molly now 13 months. lost the other one feb last year You having a Molly too was of interest to me. They are fun. When we got her we were not sure what to call her so she is Molly.

Our Molly does not hide things but leaves her teddy down the back yard which sometimes is hard to retrieve because of the steep block of land we have. As we do not have snow here how do the dogs go with getting cold. The pictures on this site look like they have so much fun playing in the snow. Molly has just come back from the beach with us but in Sydney dogs are not allowed on the beach so she just stays on the grass near the sand on a lead. Boring.

sorry Sherry.

We do not show Molly. Years ago I used to show but not now... happy just having Molly. Your Molly weighs more than ours. Thedog training do not recommend choker collars. Molly goes back to training this Sunday.. they close over the hot months but is still hot. We live in Sydney not near the floods. I felt so sorry for the people of QLD we live in NSW it is the worst thing that has happened in Australia from my memory. We have had the bush fires which are really bad but this was awful. A friend of mine takes her dog to a dog park she has a boxer but I don't wish to take Molly to one.  Would be real fun to have both Mollys play together... bit far to travel for that. Our Molly could put on some weight but she has come a litter of 15 and I think she is quite small for an IS. We love her heaps she is my companion during the day. Still can't imagine the setters in the snow. Most likely because we do not have snow in Sydney only down the snowy mountains in southern NSW. take care talk soon

only just read your message. I love the photos of Miss Molly at Xmas. We spent Xmas in Alice Springs which is in the middle of Australia with our son and his family. Molly had hers at the kennels. She likes it there but hopefully next Christmas our family will be back in Sydney. My son is a pilot and living inAlice Springs to get more flying hours.

thanks. The kennels have playtime but not for long during the day. Our previous setter went there also and they loved her so much and this has been passed on to Molly who is special. They pickup her up from the vets which is local to us and she is transported to the kennels which takes about two hours with other dogs and cats. They are a big concern in Sydney and train dogs for customs. beagles mainly.

Your Miss Molly sits on the lounge the same way as ours. I suppose they all do much the same things.

that photo was taken when we arrived home from the aiport after collecting Molly. She came from QLD. I have two cats and they were used to the previous setter. When she died the other cat really missed her. I was not sure how Molly would go but the trauma of the flight, meeting new people then faced with a 1/1/2 hour trip from the ariport with us via the pet shop where we purchased the bed in the picture I think she was just glad to be settled. She had a long trip to the airport the other end in QLD to Brisbane.
