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. Atosil For instance, atosil while one collar may be used to guide your dog, atosil another may be used for restraining him/her, atosil while still another may be used to discourage the development of negative behaviors.

Atosil The following is a list of training collars that can be used for dog training, atosil but are not the ideal choice for training a Puggle -

Atosil Prong Collar – This is a collar comprised of metal prongs that are linked together. Atosil When pressure is applied to the collar with the leash, atosil the dog receives a slight pinch on their neck. Atosil This pinch doesn’t hurt the dog, atosil 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. Atosil There is a correct way to apply the prong collar, atosil which should be learned before being used on a dog.

Atosil When the leash is pulled, atosil the halter closes the dog’s mouth and restrains his/her head.

Atosil 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.

Atosil Electronic Collar – Just as the name implies, atosil an electronic collar is designed to give the dog harmless shocks when he/she is exhibiting behaviors the owner disapproves of. Atosil However, atosil these collars have adjustable settings, atosil and if the setting is too high, atosil you can hurt the dog. Atosil Therefore, atosil this type of collar should only be used by experienced trainers and really isn’t necessary for a Puggle.

Atosil As you can see, atosil the above dog collars are too harsh for training a small dog like a Puggle. Atosil Therefore, atosil the fact remains that when it comes to Puggle training, atosil a standard, atosil durable leather or nylon collar or harness are perfect for training and keeping your dog under control.
