Different Types Of Dog Collars And Body Harnesses
Head halters originated in England and have found a new home in the United States. These gentle and very effective bridles are super for large dogs who have small handlers. We know that the dog's head is the weakest part of its body. Why not use this information wisely, and use a device that humanely offers you excellent control, given that most large animals are controlled by their heads. Imagine trying to walk a horse on a leash by the neck; you'd be dragged till you perish. Dog trainers have successfully trained countless numbers of dogs using this tool.
Collars are often chosen as a fashion statement but these choices should change with your requirements for your dog's training. When you train obedience you should choose one collar; if you are training your dog in protection, you might need another type. This all evolves as your dog becomes more off-lead responsible.
Pinch Collars: The pinch or prong collar looks barbaric but is a very useful tool when used correctly, and it offers much less potential for injury than the slip collar. The pinch collar is fitted to the neck size for effectiveness. This collar should be used with the aid of a professional in that the discomfort offered by this collar can result in an aggressive overreaction by a dog. But it is a great tool for the right handler and the right dog.
Body harnesses: When your dog is using a body harness, it suggests to the dog that he should pull, because opposition reflexes result in strong forging behaviors. Sled dogs, seeing eye dogs, carting dogs, and tracking dogs all wear harnesses. Dogs with these jobs of pulling ahead of their handlers should wear harnesses. If you enjoy being pulled, then be my guest and allow your dog to wear a harness. If you want your dog near you on a walk, then do not use a harness.
