Dog Training Tips
The dog collar is made out of various materials and put around the neck of a dog for control, identification, fashion, or other purposes. Medical information and identification dog tags are often placed on collars and/or embroidered into nylon web collars. Minimum identification should include your dog's name and your home telephone number on one dog tag, and a city or county dog license tag. If your dog escapes from your yard without a dog license tag and is caught by a dog catcher/governmental animal control worker, your fee to get your dog back can be in the range of $125-$250! You'll have to pay for licensing fees, penalty fees, back licensing fees for every year your dog was unlicensed, 5-7 vaccines, heartworm check, and vet check-up, depending on the standard operating procedures where your dog is being kenneled. Use your dog's collar for controlling your pet, as it provides an excellent handle for grabbing.
Flea collars are impregnated with chemicals that repel fleas and usually ticks. Use them as a supplementary collar only! They should be worn in addition to a control/identification collar.
Elizabethan Collars, are shaped like a cone. They worn by by your dog to prevent it from scratching a wound on its head and neck area, or licking a wound anywhere on its body.
Protection, Wolf and Stud Collars are collars fitted with metal studs or spikes that prevent another animal from biting the dog's neck. For dogs protecting domestic livestock in case they are attacked by predators (hence one of the names, "Wolf Collar"). These collars protect the neck and throat from targeted attack.
Choke Collars (also called choke chains, slip collars, or slip chains) commonly, are a length of chain or nylon rope with rings or loops at either end so that the collar can be formed into a loop around the top of the animal's neck, as close to the head as possible, just behind the ears. These collars slip tighter and tighter when pulled, then slip looser when tension is released. A quick straight up jerk and a displeasure sound from you ("SHHhht, NO," etc.) with an immediate release is used to alert the dog that it has done something undesirable. On the other han, praise (even a treat when first being trained for a new behavior) should always be given when the dog acts correctly. It has been used for extremely aggressive red zone dogs and for rectifying aggression and dominant behavior towards the dog's handlers. The correct usage would be to loop it right behind the ears. The higher up the neck, closer to the head and therefore the ears, the more control you'll get over your dog. The lower down the neck, towards the shoulders, the more control your dog has over you, due to its ability to pull with its shoulders and your decreased ability to control its head. A displeasure sound from you should be one of the first things you train your dog. Every time you catch your dog in an unwanted behavior, every time you should use your same displeasure sound--"SSHHhhtt" or "NO!" or some other sound that your dog will associate with undesireable conduct.
Electronic Collars (also known as shock collars, remote training collars, or hunting collars) are electronic training systems designed to deliver an electrical static shock through contact points attached to a dog collar. Our Remote-Controlled 4 in 1 Electronic System is the BEST! 1st it has a Whistle Function on the Remote with three levels of decibel intensity to attract the attention of your dog to you, so it can see what you want. Use hand signals along with a calm and assertive vocal command. 2nd it has a Warning Vibration to let your dog associate the vibration with the electronic static impulse. In time, the vibration alone will achieve the same effect as the static impulse. 3rd in has the Static Impulse that penetrates the hair of your dog and even fabric 6mm thick. This will quickly and effectively curb the improper behavior of your dog. 4th the system has a LED Signal and Illumination at Night for training your dog after you come home from a long day away from your pet.
Martingale Dog Collars are a type of dog collar that provides control over your dog without the choking effect of a Choke Collar, also known as Humane Choke Collars or Greyhound Collars. This collar was designed for SIGHTHOUNDS because their necks are often larger than their head, and therefore, they can slip out of common buckle collars. These collars are gaining in popularity among breed owners with many professional dog trainers, now recommending them instead of Choke Collars. These collars are fitted to the precise size of the dog's neck when it is pulled closed. When correctly fitted, these collars will be loose, and therefore, comfortable when not in use. When the Martingale Dog Collar control loop is pulled, the 2 slides (the rings at the end of the collar around your dog's neck) should pull close together but the two slides should not touch. SIGHTHOUNDS, also known as GAZEHOUNDS, are hounds that hunt by sight and running speed. In contrast, SCENT HOUNDS are hounds that hunt by scent and endurance.
Pinch Collars (also called prong collars) are made from chain links with opened ends that are turned towards the dog's throat and neck. When the collar is pulled, it pinches the loose skin found around the dog's neck. In nature, this loose neck skin is what mother dogs grab on to when they're transporting their puppies. When accurately sized and adjusted, it not only startles your dog, but produces a sudden pinching correction. Because of the looseness of the skin, your dog's hair, and the blunted ends of the open ends of the chain links, it is practically impossible to actually puncture the skin of your dog. Even though this collar looks deceptively painful, it is less harmful than a Choke Collar. The Pinch Collar has a constant limited circumference, and therefore it is impossible to compress the animal's throat and cause trachea damage like choke collars possibly can. The Pinch Collar also requires less force to execute a correction than a Choke Collar. In time just a flick of the wrist will be sufficient to produce the desired result from your dog. Also any pressure on the dog's throat and neck is spread out over a significantly larger area than with most common buckle collars and of course with all Choke Collars.
