While there are strong opinions out there about tools that are “best” for training, or tools that should never be used, we believe that every dog and human are different and that everyone should use what works for their dog and themselves, as long as they are properly trained in the use of the tools. In our opinion, pain should never be used as a method of training. Also, we do not make recommendations for tools that Maureen has not been trained to use herself, such as a “choke chain”. That said, the links below reflect the brands of tools that we believe are high quality and of reasonable cost.
PLEASE SEEK PROFESSIONAL TRAINING TO LEARN HOW TO USE ANY TOOLS
Herm Sprenger and Leerburg are the best prong collars made. This is their homepage, but you can also find them on Amazon, Chewy and other pet and general sites. Their less expensive options are better than any options made by other cHaltiompanies. Some folks prefer colors other than silver and some dogs have reactions to silver and do better with copper or other metal. We do not recommend collars with “quick release” as those can result in unintended release with inexperienced operators.
There are many e-collars on the market that are of high quality and are user-friendly. The Educator and Mini Educator are Maureen’s choice of e-collars due to simple build and operation, reliability, and a set of clear directions. All E-Collar Technologies products are well made.
