What are the types of training collars for medium-sized dogs?
There are several types of training collars suitable for working and hunting dogs. These include:
- Pet obedience collars — When a dog does not follow a command, these collars provide gentle feedback. They typically use sound, vibration or a mild static shock to get the dog's attention and encourage them to obey commands. Some pet obedience collars also come with a remote control to allow the handler to activate the collar when needed.
- Working dogs/hunting dog collars — These collars are designed for dogs with specific jobs or tasks, such as hunting or herding. They are often made of durable materials like leather or nylon and may include GPS tracking, shock resistance and waterproofing features. Some working dogs/hunting dog collars can also deliver a mild static shock to get the dog's attention or discourage unwanted behaviour.
- Harnesses — Leash-pulling dogs benefit from harnesses since they distribute pressure over their chest and shoulders instead of their neck. Some harnesses also include front attachment points to discourage pulling behaviour.
It's important to note that training collars, including those suitable for medium dogs, should be done with caution and only under the guidance of a professional trainer.
How long should I use a training collar on my dog?
In general, training collars should not be worn for long periods of time. They’re best used only during training sessions and under supervision. Some dogs may take some time or multiple wear sessions to get used to a training collar, so short and spread out training sessions are encouraged.
If improperly used, leaving a training collar on for too long, or too constantly, can cause skin irritation and pressure sores.
Are training collars safe for medium dogs?
When worn properly, training collars for medium dogs can be safe. But it's crucial to pick the correct style and size collar for your dog and adhere to the manufacturer's guidelines. Before employing a training collar, it's also vital to consider your dog's temperament and behaviour.
Some dogs might not react favourably to training collars, or they can have underlying health conditions that cause them to abuse collars. The most suitable kind of training collar for your dog can be determined by consulting a veterinarian or a qualified dog trainer like us.
