When To Use a Training Collar
A training collar should not be used for normal wear outside of training and walks. Even though the training collars are designed to be comfortable for your dogs, having a normal collar to switch out to during normal down time at home will help avoid any accident with the training collar being caught on anything around the house. Don’t get a slip collar for your dog if they do not need any sort of training or behavioral correction.
Tips For Proper Training Collar Use
To use a slip collar correctly, all it takes is a quick, firm pull sideways on the leash. The pull will engage the slip collar, which will then force your dog slightly off balance and grab their attention. Pulling the leash straight back will only cause your dog to pull against you with no correction. The slip collars are designed specifically to not harm your dog’s neck, but constant improper use of the collar could make it ineffective for training. If you’re unsure about how to use a training collar properly, ask a local dog trainer or vet for help. Order one of our collars today!
