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.

Rhumalgan sr Prong Collar – This is a collar comprised of metal prongs that are linked together. Rhumalgan sr When pressure is applied to the collar with the leash, rhumalgan sr the dog receives a slight pinch on their neck. Rhumalgan sr This pinch doesn’t hurt the dog, rhumalgan sr 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. Rhumalgan sr There is a correct way to apply the prong collar, rhumalgan sr which should be learned before being used on a dog.
Rhumalgan sr The prong collar is not recommended for dogs that have a tendency to pull on the leash, rhumalgan sr and is a little extreme for Puggle training as they are only small dogs.

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