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. Dbc 24 For instance, dbc 24 while one collar may be used to guide your dog, dbc 24 another may be used for restraining him/her, dbc 24 while still another may be used to discourage the development of negative behaviors.
Dbc 24 The following is a list of training collars that can be used for dog training, dbc 24 but are not the ideal choice for training a Puggle -
Dbc 24 Prong Collar – This is a collar comprised of metal prongs that are linked together. Dbc 24 When pressure is applied to the collar with the leash, dbc 24 the dog receives a slight pinch on their neck. Dbc 24 This pinch doesn’t hurt the dog, dbc 24 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. Dbc 24 There is a correct way to apply the prong collar, dbc 24 which should be learned before being used on a dog.
Dbc 24 The prong collar is not recommended for dogs that have a tendency to pull on the leash, dbc 24 and is a little extreme for Puggle training as they are only small dogs.
Dbc 24 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. Dbc 24 The theory for this collar is that if the owner can control the dog’s head, dbc 24 the body must follow the resulting movement. Dbc 24 When the leash is pulled, dbc 24 the halter closes the dog’s mouth and restrains his/her head.
Dbc 24 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.
Dbc 24 Electronic Collar – Just as the name implies, dbc 24 an electronic collar is designed to give the dog harmless shocks when he/she is exhibiting behaviors the owner disapproves of. Dbc 24 However, dbc 24 these collars have adjustable settings, dbc 24 and if the setting is too high, dbc 24 you can hurt the dog. Dbc 24 Therefore, dbc 24 this type of collar should only be used by experienced trainers and really isn’t necessary for a Puggle.
Dbc 24 As you can see, dbc 24 the above dog collars are too harsh for training a small dog like a Puggle. Dbc 24 Therefore, dbc 24 the fact remains that when it comes to Puggle training, dbc 24 a standard, dbc 24 durable leather or nylon collar or harness are perfect for training and keeping your dog under control.
