Dog collars are available in a wide range of sizes, designs, and styles. It is up to the owner to choose the best one for their pet dog. While purchasing a dog collar, certain factors are to be taken into consideration, such as the dog's size, temperament, and mode of training. For most dogs, the regular nylon and leather varieties serve the best purpose. Nevertheless, choosing the right one for strong-willed and stubborn pets is not very easy. Indeed, you do have to spend an extra effort purchasing one for a dog that pulls while on a leash.

Types of Collars

For many dog owners, it is quite challenging to select the best brand from the different types of collars available. Using the right no-pull collar will help you control and train your dog easily. Otherwise, you will have a difficult time while training or simply walking with your dog. The following are some options for dogs that pull.

Head Collars

This is a proper training collar which works by pressing slightly on the dog's muzzle and neck. So, whenever the dog tries to pull or behave aggressively, he/she will feel that pressure on the muzzle. When used correctly, head collars can help in proper training and correcting a dog's behavioral problems (if any).

Halter Type Collars

This is the best option to have full control over your dog. It is more or less similar to a horse halter that goes around the back of the head. When you pull the leash slightly, it will give a direct pressure to the head, thus helping you to lay control over your dog while training or going for walks.

Chain-Slip Collars

Simply called a choke chain, this variety is used for training very aggressive dogs. Contrary to the steady pulling mode, this collar sits high on the neck and involves a fast tug-and-release method, which tightens around the dog as long as he/she continues to pull. Prior to using this, make sure that you understand the guidelines properly. To be precise, use this collar when your dog does not behave well with the regular, traditional ones.

Pronged Collars

Prongs are easy to use, and a better option as compared to slip collars. Unlike choke chains, pronged collars are configured in such a way that the dog is tightened to a certain extent. With prongs around the neck (behind the ears), applying a strong pressure can cause injury to the dog's skin. Hence, understand the manual properly before using it.

Dog Harnesses

A dog harness is actually more than a collar, wherein the leash is connected to the chest and ribcage portion. With such an option, the dog is refrained from choking even if he/she tries to pull while walking. Many dog owners prefer using this rather than using a collar, especially if their pets tend to pull while being outdoors.

Understand the product that suits your pet dog and buy the correct type. In case you are not clear about the correct collar brand for your pet, don't hesitate to seek advice from a professional dog trainer. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Positive dog training was developed under the principles of Skinner's operant conditioning. While it's not a new technique, it didn't get enough popularity until the nineties.

Former students of Skinner, psychologists Keller and Marian Breland, pioneered commercial applications of operant conditioning when they created Animal Behavior Enterprises (ABE) on 1942. ABE was the first company that offered positive training services.

The huge popularity of traditional training prevented ABE to succeed in dog training. So, the Breland's company was forced to look for new niches and ABE got focused on training animals for TV shows and commercials. Keller and Marian also pioneered dolphin training for aquaria and US navy.

Positive reinforcement is the main teaching way of these techniques. Positive reinforcement is not the same as reward, though this is a common misconception.

Positive reinforcement is the process that strengthens a behavior because a pleasant situation occurs as a consequence of that particular behavior. For instance, if you give a food treat to your dog when he lies down, he will tend to lie down more frequently to get that delicious treat. Thus, your dog will be learning to lie down through positive reinforcement.

On the other hand, if your dog lies down and you reward him after 10 seconds, he may not associate the action of lying down with the reward. He may think you gave him the treat because he was looking up, or moving his ears. So, you rewarded your dog but you didn't reinforce the desired behavior.

Some people think that positive trainers never teach to the dog that a particular behavior is unacceptable. This is a common and big misinterpretation. Practitioners of positive training do teach this to dogs, but they don't use punishment or negative reinforcement for that.

Clicker training is the most popular of these techniques in many countries. It is the same technique used by Keller and Marian Breland, and was popularized by the biologist and dolphin trainer Karen Pryor.

The main difference between clicker training and other positive techniques is the use of a clicker in the former. A clicker is just a small device that emits a click-click sound when squeezed. It is used to mark the exact moment in which the dog performed a desired behavior.

The absolute absence of negative reinforcement, punishment and training collars (choke, prong or shock) make of positive dog training a very friendly technique to both dogs and owners. This could be the main advantage of this kind of training.

Other advantages are that positive dog training is easy to understand and fun to carry out. Besides, these techniques are not only focused on obedience exercises. Instead, they are widely used to solve behavioral problems.

Detractors of these techniques claim that dogs trained in a positive way won't be able to respond properly unless they can see (or scent) a food treat. These people also claim that positive trained behaviors are not reliable under variable circumstances.

Although very common, those claims are not true. The efficacy of positive training is demonstrated each day by hundreds of service dogs for disabled people, police dogs, competition dogs and performing dogs.
