I tried to take it off him and he attacked me, it took me about 10 minutes with leather gloves, heavy winter coat, and shoes on and I had to wrap him in a blanket to take it off him. I have never felt so bad. He is an aggressive dog and I was just hoping.
yours is a classic case of not understanding the purpose and proper use of an Electronic Training Collar. Sorry you had to find out the hard way!

A well trained dog will make no attempt to share your lunch.

He'll just make you feel guilty while you're eating it.
