Types Of Dog Training Collars
There are different types of dog training collars, thus it would be a good idea to be familiar with each type and when it is appropriate to use. Insufficient knowledge on the part of the dog owner has often led to overuse and misuse of dog training collars resulting in dire consequences.
One of the most commonly used dog training collar is the electronic dog collar which is designed to allow continuous “training” even when the dog trainer or owner is not around. However, there are certain disadvantages that should never be ignored.
There are also instances in which the use of dog training collars has been counterproductive, such as when the collar does not fit the dog well. Poor-fitting training collars can scratch and cause raw spots on the skin. When looking for the best fit, be sure that there is a two-to-three-inch gap between the collar and the dog’s neck.
