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

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

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

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

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

Iodine 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.

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

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