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