DOG TRAINING COLLAR
DOG PULLS - WHISTLE - STOPBuy The Whistle Stop Dog Training Aid

A Dog Training Collar is a specially designed collar to help you speed up your dog training process. With the right collar and training methods, it can become a really powerful and helpful tool in helping you to correct your dog's bad habits or solving difficult behavioral problems.

Alternatively, training collars can also help you speed up basic dog obedience training commands such as "sit", "stay" or "heel".

In fact, the usage of dog training collar to train your dog could potentially help save you quite a sum of money considering the possible damages your dog might cause to your house if his/her behavior problems are not dealt with swiftly and properly.

However, with so many different varieties of training collars available nowadays, many dog owners find it difficult and confusing in deciding the right dog training collar for their pet dog.

While each and every dog training collar are not created alike or equal, there are some common factors that you should look out for when choosing the ideal training collar for your dog. They are:

Size and Comfort

First and foremost, it is really important that the collar will fit comfortably on your dog's neck with some allowances of 2 to 3 inches to spare. A quick way to check is that you should be able to fit two fingers between your pet and the collar.

Affordability

While it is true that quality is always partnered with high value, it doesn't mean that the efficiency of the collar is lowered when you use the cheaper ones.

For example, folks who are looking to fix a small barking problem may actually just need a simple, cheap and efficient no-bark collar instead of the expensive ones to discourage your dog from barking.

So, depending on what your dog's problem is, you should get the collar base on its attributes, your needs and what you can afford.

Functionality and Efficiency

There are many different types of collars in the market and each serve a different purpose. For examples:

Choke Collars are flexible and are use commonly to train service dog or for agility training. They are also ideal and relatively easy for a new dog owner to start and begin with.

Head Collars are suitable if you would like more control over your dog in the form of directing where you want him/her to move.

Pronged Collars are effective for small size people who have very big, strong dogs and can really give you an edge over a really wild, misbehaving dog. (More information about Prong Collars)

Meanwhile Electronic Collars can be very effective for dogs that seem untrainable but they are also not suitable for dogs with health problems or those that are yet 12 months of age. (The Electronic Collar)

Thus, the efficiency of the different individual collars depends on you in knowing the proper functionality and choosing the correct collar for your dog.

Warranties and Guarantees

Warranties are usually limited to remote electronic collars and the good ones usually come with a 30 days risk free money back guarantee.

However, different product brands have different "warranties" for example; some gives full coverage on parts and labor while others may require you to pay a service fee for warranty repairs but they may also be cheaper upfront.

For that reason, it's best that you do the proper research, check the full package and price before going ahead with your purchase.

Ultimately, the main purpose of a dog training collar is not to hurt the animal, but to help you to speed up the process of training your dog.

All things considered, it is advisable that for any dog owners who are interested in using dog training collars to have some proper understanding of the collar’s functions, purpose and abilities before using it on your dog so as to prevent any wrong usage or unpleasant accidents.

The bottom line, a dog training collar is like any other tool, in the right hands with the right methods, it can work wonders. Eventually, the dog training collar becomes what it is depending upon the person using it correctly.
