Did you know that there is more than just a standard collar you can use for Puggle training? Different collars are designed to have diverse effects on a dog. Actos For instance, actos while one collar may be used to guide your dog, actos another may be used for restraining him/her, actos while still another may be used to discourage the development of negative behaviors.
Actos The following is a list of training collars that can be used for dog training, actos but are not the ideal choice for training a Puggle -
Actos Prong Collar – This is a collar comprised of metal prongs that are linked together. Actos When pressure is applied to the collar with the leash, actos the dog receives a slight pinch on their neck. Actos This pinch doesn’t hurt the dog, actos as it has been designed to replicate the effect the mother dog’s teeth would have on her pup as she picked him/her up by the scruff of the neck. Actos There is a correct way to apply the prong collar, actos which should be learned before being used on a dog.
Actos The prong collar is not recommended for dogs that have a tendency to pull on the leash, actos and is a little extreme for Puggle training as they are only small dogs.
Actos Head Halters – This type of collar is designed to fit on your dog’s head and is meant to restrain the movements of your pet. Actos The theory for this collar is that if the owner can control the dog’s head, actos the body must follow the resulting movement. Actos When the leash is pulled, actos the halter closes the dog’s mouth and restrains his/her head.
Actos This is another collar that is not necessary for Puggle training as Puggles are not aggressive dogs and are not prone to lunging and biting.
Actos Electronic Collar – Just as the name implies, actos an electronic collar is designed to give the dog harmless shocks when he/she is exhibiting behaviors the owner disapproves of. Actos However, actos these collars have adjustable settings, actos and if the setting is too high, actos you can hurt the dog. Actos Therefore, actos this type of collar should only be used by experienced trainers and really isn’t necessary for a Puggle.
Actos As you can see, actos the above dog collars are too harsh for training a small dog like a Puggle. Actos Therefore, actos the fact remains that when it comes to Puggle training, actos a standard, actos durable leather or nylon collar or harness are perfect for training and keeping your dog under control.
