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