If you're a professional trainer who is looking for dog equipment for behavior correction, look no further than choke dog collars. Usually made from steel, the chain slips through itself to form a collar that tightens as a dog pulls away. This slipping design is why these collars are also sometimes called slip collars.
The placement of this type of collar is different. It is placed high on the neck, just below the canine's ears. When the dog pulls at the collar, the noose-like design constricts and chokes them. Recommended for use by professional dog trainers, choke collars can correct behaviors like excessive barking and pulling. Just make sure the collar is only worn during training sessions since regular use can injure your four-legged companion.
But before you go and buy a training collar for your dog, here are some things to keep an eye out for:
Whether you get a chain dog collar or a training rope, make sure it is designed to last. Trust us, the last thing you want is your dog collar breaking at the first sign of a muscular neck. Also, if you're opting for metal chains, ensure they are resistant to corrosion. This will ensure the collar stays shiny and rust-free for a long time.
Ease of Use
Next, you should only select training collars that are easy to use. Most choker collars come with a slip design where you hold the chain with both hands and let it fall down into a large end link. Anything more complicated could be difficult and time-consuming to use. You can get a good idea of a dog collar's ease of use by reading through customer reviews.
Your new dog collar must also boast the correct fit. Anything too snug can hurt your pup. On the other hand, your dog can slip out of a loose collar. So, opt for dog collars that come in a variety of sizes to ensure you find one that fits your dog's neck.
Constructed using premium stainless steel, the Sgoda Dog Collar comes in eight different sizes. Each size option gets you a different length and thickness, suitable for a range of dogs. To find the right size, Sgoda recommends measuring the widest part of your dog’s head. This will be from under the chin to behind the ears. You should then add 2 to 3 inches to this length to get the adequate size.
Customers particularly appreciate just how sturdy this chain is, regardless of the thickness you opt for. No matter how strong your dog is, this dog collar is sure to last you countless training sessions. It is also rust-proof for added durability. Using this dog collar and slipping the chain through itself is also effortless.
