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

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

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

Expan The prong collar is not recommended for dogs that have a tendency to pull on the leash, expan and is a little extreme for Puggle training as they are only small dogs.

Expan 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. Expan The theory for this collar is that if the owner can control the dog’s head, expan the body must follow the resulting movement. Expan When the leash is pulled, expan the halter closes the dog’s mouth and restrains his/her head.

Expan 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.

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

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