Training Collars

 

Within our training philosophy we have collars that can help with your dog's training. These collars do not implement pain when used correctly (meaning no jerking, choking, etc) and provide a more pleasant experience then the traditional prong, choke or electric collars.

Martingale

Limited slip-collars

Designed to fit a greyhound's neck these collars became a perfect tool for the escape artists who dash out of their collars. There is a loop incorporated into the collar so it tightens around the dog’s neck if he tries to back out of it. The collar tightens but does not choke the dog.

No pull harness

Clips up front or in the back

Harnesses are often associated with pulling. A no pull harness can become a tool of pulling if allowed. When used properly the no-pull harness can be an incredible tool to help train your dog not to pull. Examples:

  • Freedom harness

  • Sense-ation

  • Easy Walk

Headhalters

A debatable training collar

The one training collar positive trainers cannot agree on is the headhalter. Is it a positive tool or an aversive one? If used correctly -starting with desensitation of the halter- the headhalter can become a great training tool that provides control over the head and the rest of the body. If used incorrectly it can become a training tool that shuts dogs down.

Examples of such collars:

Gentle leader

Halti

What not to use

Electronic collars

Pinch or prong collars

Choke collars

We will further provide pictures, training methods and science behind these popular training collars.
