Veterinarian Middlesex -Veterinary
The local veterinarian in Middlesex has a training program to help dog owners learn about training their. One of the topics was dog training . This is what I learnt from the class. There are many different types of the nylon dog , head halter, as well as other apparatuses available to help train your dog. But remember that the nylon dog is just a tool and it does not have the ability in itself to teach your dog the correct behavior. That is dependant on you. Your dog should have already learnt the basic obedience commands before you put any device on him. The tools you use are to help him avoid reinforcing the negative behavior and to help you reward him only for the good. The slip collar is one kind of nylon dog that restricts the dog's airway for a spilt second, making it undesirable and uncomfortable to perform the undesired action. The collar should be about 2 inches bigger than the dog's skull. A good fitting collar helps you to give better instruction to your dog. Be careful to place the collar correctly, high up on the dog's neck, right behind the ears with the slip rings just under the dog's right ear. When using any type of nylon dog (flat or round) the tightening should only be brief. If the tension is always equal then the dog is not being taught what the correct behavior is. It is important to understand that if your dog normally uses a different collar from the nylon dog that you are training him with, he will possibly ignore your commands when using his normal collar. It is important for your dog's progress and success, to train and be consistent no matter what type of collar he is wearing.
