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