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