    Understanding Training Collars For Dogs


    Everybody loves to have a new puppy; training and educating it is another matter however. In this regard, training collars for dogs are considered very practical tools, although dog owners are advised to study their options in order to make a good decision that will satisfy their dogs' needs. Training collars are manufactured by several companies, and each company in turn offers several models that differ in quality, price, and features.

    While at first, the selection of a training collar can be overwhelming, if you are clear on what you need the collar for, then the process becomes easier.

    Different Sorts of training collars for dogs

    Choosing the right type of collar can be key in the success of the training. While all training collars for dogs have basically the same goal, each kind approaches the task in a slightly different way. Electronic collars are the first option to come to mind. The electronic collar gives the dog a small, harmless, jolt of static electricity whenever the dog misbehaves.

    Choke collars are another option. As the name suggests, when the dog struggles against the owners lead the collar constricts. Dog owners must learn carefully how to use such collars, however, in order to avoid really hurting the dog. Finally, there are citronella spray collars, which spray the dog's mouth and nose with a citronella scent which is disgusting to dogs whenever they disobey an order or incurs in bad behavior.

    Regardless of which training collar you select to use, it's paramount that your dog understands that training is taking place and that the instructions on what the pet is or isn't supposed to be doing are clear. Without clear instructions on what the animal has to do in order to avoid punishment, training will only result in fear or agressiveness. In the end, the training collar will slowly become obsolete as the dog assimilates the new behavior and incorportates it as normal part of its life.

    Today, training collars for dogs are one of the most useful tools for dog owners. There are different classes of collars, but the most common are electronic, choking, and spray based. However, training collars for dogs should always be used in training and only under supervision and with clear instructions.
