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

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

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

Itraconazole When the leash is pulled, itraconazole the halter closes the dog’s mouth and restrains his/her head.

Itraconazole 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.

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

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