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