a Chest Harness or a Dog Collar in Training of your Staffie?

What Would You Prefer: a Chest Harness or a Dog Collar in Training of your Staffie?

You’ve just took funny puppy of Staffordshire Bull Terrier. But the funny puppy is already the terrible one. Staffy needs your constant attention, love and experienced supervision of the trainer. Don’t try to train your pet with the help of trainer without the sufficient time. You’d better pay attention to another dog breed, if you can’t afford it.

In the relationships between the dog and human there is one important thing – the strength of the character. Who is the leader, who leads and who is following during the walk. How the social interaction is forming in your pair.

Angel or Devil. We will speak about the electroshock and prong collars. There are many rumors, which say that such collars lead to dog dependence on them. Do you try to handle your dog with the help of causing it pain? And after that, you really think that the result would be fine? A prong collar chokes the puppy from the bottom of its neck, the soft part of the neck. Such “experts” claims that according to the pack laws mother pulls about her puppies. They probably don’t know that the withers skin is pulled by the bitch. It is harmless thing, but useful as opposed to the collar.

All the other way, when the dog is chocked from the bottom of the neck it is associated with threat of life. And after all, you want to raise peaceful dog, permanently chocking it and “encourage” with electroshock. There is no need to humanize the perception of the dog. Just imagine yourself being a child, which is constantly pricked with something and chocked for every wrong step. Such child will either become embittered or will never sense pain.

You will achieve the similar aim. With the collar you will have a plaster saint dog, but without it a real devil. There are many dangerous situations connected with such aggression, for example, your dog is tore away from you in the park zone. It will present the problem for you to stop your Staffie embroiled with other dog. Perhaps, it is the reason of appearing of some enterprising businessmen, who propose an electroshock collar for maintaining control under the dog.

Remember, such import thing absence of control originates from the little; from the choice between a collar and a harness.

What to choose for the good walking:  a dog harness or a dog collar?

You can find the collar for the small neck of your puppy, but it already can disobey and pull the leash. Gasping and panting your Staffie will dictate you its own terms. It is your puppy leads you, and it is you to follow him! You will be advised or recommended to use a prong collar. There is a lot of such “well-wishers” among the dog breeders and the average people who know nothing about the dog breeding.

If such advises are aimed in preventing disobedience of your Stafford, you will never pull your dog from the mess with something better than using the dog harness. The harness imitates the movement of the picking hands and allows you easily to take your pet from the troubles.

Those who are insisting on fact that the knee joint will damage because of wrong distribution of the weight supposedly look like the mothers from the past centuries, which tightly swaddle their children to justify their legs. Anatomy is the anatomy; initial structure of bones won’t change with time. It is unlikely that short walking will be harmful for the forming of joints. But the harness should be made of textile to avoid limitation of the movements. It will help to prevent clubfoot.
