signal is on the other hand not found effective in police dog training although it causes the
“least distress” reactions in dogs when comparing with the electronic training- and pinchcollar. Altogether, concerning the “bodily reactions”, the pinch collar was evaluated as the
most distressful method and considering the “learning effect”, the electronic training collar
was found to be the most effective method.
and then later in the same chapter 5.3:
It should particularly be mentioned, that the quitting signal training was implied only on adult
dogs within the frame of this study. Therefore, the results should not be interpreted as that the
quitting signal can not be a suitable method in police dog training. As previously stated
training of the quitting signal requires a hard and a structured procedure. Thus, if the training,
namely the conditioning, begins at the puppy hood, the quitting signal can also be an effective
method in police dog training
