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