Trainer Recommends

As an ABC Certified Dog Trainer, ABC Mentor, CGC Evaluator I recommend the following to help you and your dog be happy:
 
Though the items mentioned below are used as tools to help with your dogs' training program, please keep in mind that I recommend using Positive Reinforcement/Negative Punishment.  Always associating POSITIVE experiences to my training as you positively reinforce a good behavior. 
 
Freefom No-Pull Harness:  Call K-10 Dog Training with details about this new product which works as well and sometimes even better than the Easy Walk Harness.  It all depends on the dog and the physical limitations of the owner.  (K-10 Dog Training is a Vendor and sells this item.)
 
                      Shop @ Concord Pet Stores (Rehoboth Beach DE of course)
 
Easy Walk Harness:  To gain control of your pulling dog.  It is very humane on both you and your dog.  The Easy Walk Harness should be snug enough so that he can not wiggle out of but loose enough so that he can breath comfortably, sitting, standing or lying down.  The 'D' ring should rest as high as possible in front, chest area.  Never dropping down to obstruct the legs and making it uncomfortable for your dog to walk.  I recommend this for anyone who has any physical problems.
 
Gentle Leader:  This collar goes around the dogs' mussle.  Some dogs don't like the 'feel' of it and it can take up to 2 weeks for your dog to be 'desenitized' to the feeling.  This type of collar does work, it is like steering a horse.  You gain control of your dog.  Please remember any serious jerks with this lead can hurt your dog.
 
The Martingale Collar:  I highly this collar recommended if you have a wiggler and he can wiggle (escape) from his regular collar or the Easy Walk Harness.  Some very excited dogs can get loose with the Easy Walk Harness.   This is where the Freedom No-Pull (by Wags, Wiggles and Wiskers only) will help keep the dog from wiggling out of or hurting himself with other collars.
  
Note:  Please keep in mind that this collar is similar to the choker collar but is more humane because it is not made of chain.  Remember if you are unable to appropriately administer the proper correction, giving a release immediately afterward you 'pop', then this concept will not help you to control your pulling dog.  It will only enhance the pulling and any form of correction will not be effective.  You and your dog will become more frustrated with each other and your dog will learn that pulling is a normal 'feel', hence he will pull harder and harder.  (For every pull is a counter pull.)
 
Also:  You must consider if there are any health problems associated to your dogs' physical limitations to the use of any 'tool' or you will only hurt your dog more.  Always see your veternarian for all medical conditions and concerns.
 
Please note:
NO SMALL DOG SHOULD HAVE A CHOKER LIKE APPARATUS AROUND THEIR NECKS.  IF YOU DO PUT ONE ON YOUR DOG, IT WILL SERIOUSLY HURT YOUR DOG.  PLEASE CONSIDER 1 OF THE 2 HARNESSES MENTIONED ABOVE FOR THE WELL BEING OF YOUR DOG.
