Dog Training Collars And Dog Head Halters
I support using only some dog training collars, that will not harm your dog when he starts to pull too hard.
One of the best dog training collars and my favourite one is the Martingale collar also known as the Greyhound collar. Ideal for narrow-head dogs, the Martingale dog training collars are nonslip collars with best use on Greyhounds, Whippets, Ibizan Hounds and other hunting dogs.
Having a dog with a narrow head, you might notice that a regular flat-buckle collar can slip off from time to time. The Martingale dog training collar can also be used along with the dog’s regular collar, to which his tags are attached. This collar is a very loose collar when leash-walking the dog. The advantage of this collar is that when the dog pulls, the collar tightens without applying extreme pressure on the dog’s neck.
The Gentle Leader head halter is a very common training tool for leash walking. You can attach the leash to the Gentle Leader halter(collar), under the dog’s chin. This is done so that when the dog pulls, he will always turn toward you. Be extra careful with a head halter, as it may hurt the animal if the dog pulls too hard.
Head halters are oftenly mistaken for a muzzle, as any people believe that head halters are used to prevent the dog from biting.
Also, head halters are usually hard to use on short-snouted dogs like Boxers, Pugs or Boston Terriers. If you want to use a head halter to a short-snouted dog, take extra precaution measures by attaching a second leash to the regular flat-buckle collar. This way, it will prevent the dog from running loose.
