Welcome to Advanced Obedience NePoPo® Style

Scope of Course

This program is designed for individuals that have a strong understanding of foundational obedience training culture looking to take their skills off leash. This course covers PROPER conditioning of electronic collars and how to condition that gear as a directional coaching language the dog is empowered to control.

  • Learn about proper e-collar use and common misconceptions.

  • Condition low level e-collar sim as a sensation the dog enjoys feeling & controlling.

  • Associate that e-collar stim INTO your existing training culture as both a gas pedal to GO and as a coaching language to correct.

  • Motivate your dog and turn your e-collar into a directional language allowing off leash freedom and harmony in training.

NePoPo® E-Collar Process

You'll learn how to follow this pyramid. Create investment in training and associate a new e-collar language as a directional coaching system the dog is empowered to control.

The 5 Commands

On or Off Leash

This course will show you how to transition the five commands off leash using an e-collar language system. Your dog should still execute the command with heart and soul until released, but now off leash!

Gear Up For Off Leash Training


You don't need anything to start watching this course and learning! However, when you are ready to start applying concepts with your dog we recommend having the following on hand:

  • What type of e-collar do we recommend?

    Any Martin System® collar and transmitter! Our favorite is the K9 transmitter with the Chameleon IIIB collar!

  • Where can I learn more about Martin System® gear?

    Visit to view all about the technology and innovative concepts. Visit their FAQ page for detailed instruction on setting up your new Martin System® gear!

  • Where can I buy Martin System® gear in the U.S.?

    We really like to order Martin System® gear here in the U.S.

  • What other gear might I need for this course?

    We assume you got the main gear (leashes, treat bag, climb etc) after watching Foundational Obedience NePoPo® Style. In addition to an e-collar, you may want a long line and a small leash tab for when you start fading the leash.
