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