This can disorientate the dog so that it doesn’t associate the shock with the desired effect. Such confusion is obviously counterproductive. For instance, your dog won’t come when you call him and pays you no attention, so you click the remote. He may well associate the pain with being called, so every time you call him you provoke a nervous or aggressive reaction, depending on the dog’s temperament. If the dog has a naturally aggressive nature he may attack you, because he sees you as the source of his discomfort and the fear that you are hostile to him. If the dog has a nervous disposition and doesn’t realize why he is being punished, this will only make him worse. That’s the case for the prosecution. There will be many people who claim that one of these collars has saved their dog’s life. They cite cases, where a normally obedient dog has one undesirable trait which cannot be controlled, such as chasing cars or bikes or worrying farm animals.

Although books/videos tend to be the least expensive technique, they require a lot of time, and in these days, very rarely does anyone have the time to spend countless weeks in teaching a dog simple commands like sit, heel, etc, let alone anything more advanced, and as everyone knows, time is money. Providing that necessary time to train a dog using orthodox methods usually referenced from books/videos requires eliminating that time from sometimes more important tasks such as work, or family time. On the other hand, sending a dog or a puppy to an obedience school quite often requires the same amount of investment as a training collar. Not to mention that that dog will not be trained by the owner, but by someone else which often the dog will not be able to refer back to the owner. Even choosing obedience schools where the owner takes part in the training, again that can get expensive and time-consuming.

It is a much more complicated design and can actually interfere with its intended purpose. This type of dog training collar has been known to cause neck and spinal injuries to a struggling dog. There is another type of dog training collar that tends to look scary. The prong collar is extremely effective for controlling large, thick-necked dogs, but not for the dog who is going to yank your arm. This device almost looks like some medieval torture device where the prong’s purpose is to pinch the dog’s neck by applying mild pressure. It will not do your dog any harm as the pressure is mild and does not hurt. It merely urges your dog in the right direction. This type of device is not recommended for dogs that pull on the leash steadily as it is merely a correction device and not a constant collar. You must have it fitted properly, but like any tools, it can harm your pet if not used correctly. If you are a new dog owner, this type of dog training collar is not recommended unless extensive studying is done on its use. You should also consult a veterinarian prior to fitting it to your pet. Finally, an old standby called the choke chain is not for the novice as this type of device comes in dead last. When it comes to selecting the right dog training collar for your pet, there have been numerous studies that have shown extensive neck injuries to dogs with this type of collar. It is not recommended unless you are an experienced trainer. When it comes to dog training collars, use a little bit of common sense and gain some knowledge on their proper use. You and your pet will be a lot happier for it!

Many people who have had dogs around for their entire life still don’t have any idea how to train their dogs. They think they do, but the truth is that the dog is in control instead of the owner. It’s the Alpha Dog Syndrome. It’s time to reverse the roles. Before you begin your dog training, you should know that there is a secret to success. Family dogs have been a part of my entire life. You may know the kind. They were mutts that came about as a consequence of wandering male and female dogs meeting clandestinely. Don’t get me wrong, we loved all of them, and they were fun to have in the house, but dog training was not a part of their early years. We would teach them to beg for a treat and maybe even get them to play dead (one of them, anyway). But if there was no treatment in sight, the dog had a mind of its own. It didn’t matter to us whether the dog was like Lassie or Rin Tin Tin. It was just a dog.

By the time they are weaned and sent on their way to new homes, they have learned a vast amount of things – all from their mom, their littermates, and from any environmental influences they had. Hopefully, if the pup comes from a reputable breeder (or from a mixed-breed home with understanding about raising puppies), they have had a good foundation set for future learning. This is one of the biggest reasons to purchase a pup from a knowledgeable and reputable breeder. Innate personality – there is a set type of personality all animals and people are born with. Environment – and the enriched environment will provide positive experiences and socialization. In-home work with potty training, crate training, leash & collar training, teaching appropriate stuff to chew on, your household routine, words, basic home manners. Training classes outside the home – where you teach your puppy the essentials of obedience commands, manners, and ability to do everything without the distraction of other people and dogs. Serendipity – what the up learns on his own – a huge part of early learning! As you are reading this article, YOU are learning, but so is your dog! What is your dog doing right this moment? One big thing pups learn is that when you are busy or distracted, they are free to make their own decisions, good OR bad!

Dog training collars can help you teach your dog all the basics like sit, stay, and heel as well as helping your dog with behavioral problems such as excessive barking. Dog training collars are remote-controlled collars that emit a light corrective “static” shock when your dog behaves badly, immediately linking the behavior and negative response in their mind. They are one of the simplest and most humane training aids I have found for working with dogs. However, the subject of dog training collars is also unquestionably the most controversial subject I’ve ever seen written about in the dog training world. Many people freak out at the thought of administering a tiny jolt of electricity as a correction to their pet, while not thinking twice about giving them a much more painful whack on the nose for stepping out of line, or hauling him, gasping, off his feet with a “choke” collar when training him to heel. I agree the potential for abuse and misuse of these devices is also great.

One thing you can count on when bringing home a new dog is the fact that he will nip and bite at your fingertips during the first few days or weeks. This is totally normal and there is no reason to get frantic that you may have purchased an aggressive dog. However, like any hostile behavior you wish to change about your dog, you need to take a few steps so that your dog understands that biting is not something you as the “pack leader” want him to continue doing. In other words, he has to understand that biting is a huge no-no. So how do you change biting behavior which is quite natural for dogs? Well, first and foremost, you have to determine his age. This is very important because dogs under the age of about 15 weeks have to be handled slightly differently when it comes to mouthing and biting than dogs over the age of 15 weeks. 1. First, you should begin to show your dog that you prefer his licking instead of biting. When he changes his behavior and licks at your fingertips or hands, make sure to praise him very gently.

Dog training can overwhelm some people, but it really isn’t that difficult once you have these important keys to guide you. Find out what works and what to do when it doesn’t. Dog training provides your dog with important lessons. They can save his life and they can protect you, your family, your neighbors, and your household items. Sadly, many dogs end up at the local pound because they never learned how to adapt to life within human society. This is often because owners don’t know proper dog training methods. When their dogs seem unable to make the transition, owners feel their only alternative is to let the dog go. This doesn’t have to be the case for you. All it takes is knowing the right dog training techniques that work, how to apply them effectively, and where to look for help. One of the first lessons is for you.

Having more control over your dog is what most dog owners would like to have. When it comes to dog training collars, you are in fact going to get that, more comfort and more control, and be able to lead your dog more effectively. There are essentially two main types of head halters available for dogs. One is called the gentle leader and the other one is called the Halti. Both dog training collars are effective with the gentle leader coming out in front by having a better design and more control. It has a much simpler design, which sits behind the dog’s ears, then comes around the muzzle. It is connected under the chin with nylon straps. This device is not a muzzle. You will gain control over your dog by controlling his nose by using the gentle leader, and the dog is sure to follow. Second in line when it comes to dog training collars, is the Halti. It is made along with the same basic principles as the gentle leader.

When Your Dogs Don’t Get Along with Each Other When dogs don’t get along inside the home, it causes unnecessary stress for them and for their human family members. No one knows when the aggressor will snap again, and there’s always a chance that the next dogfight will be worse than the last. Because this is potentially dangerous (and nerve-wracking), it’s critical that you help your dogs get along with each other. Change Your Perspective The human mindset is one of the biggest barriers to stopping dogs from fighting in the home. We tend to treat dogs like humans, meaning we expect them to treat each other as equals and respond well to reason. But, if you want your fighting dogs to get along, you must think like a dog-and act like one. Dogs naturally create a hierarchy of power within their groups, and they dominate each other to establish their ranks and territory.

We have since overcome this little problem and he generally stays in our yard or may go over and visit the neighbor dogs. But on occasion, when the ducks are especially noisy when they arrive, Tuxcitto can’t resist and wants to go herd the ducks. Now as I mentioned earlier, these ducks are pretty independent. To say they don’t want any crazy dog trying to make them go or do something they don’t want to is putty it mildly. But they have little choice when Tuxcitto arrives. The only problem is Tuxcitto has no idea where to take them. So he just groups them together and then moves them up and down the area. To many, this is better than just feeding the ducks, but others who have not seen this activity before think that Tuxcitto may eat one. There’s a whole lot of barking and honking going on and some of the ducks take flight, which adds to the circus. The ducks are not going to be denied their free meal and Tuxcitto rarely moves them toward the food.
