Dog Obedience Training Equipment

Jun 14, 2008
You cannot execute the perfect dog training session without some dog training tools. Dog training tools are basically designed to enhance the learning pace of a dog. Part of the things that you will be learning as a dog owner during a dog training session is the type of tool that best fit your dog and the correct way to use those tools. The following are some dog training tools and their uses:

- Dog Clicker: The dog clicker is a very simple, yet effective dog training tool. These are used during instruction and dog training and consist of a plastic box with a metal tongue inside. This box creates a series of clicks when the tongue is pressed, which will get your dogs' attention. The dog clicker is used to inform the dog that it is performing well, or to call your dog in off leash training exercises.

- Dog Choke Collar: These collars consist of a long chain with a ring on either end. The chain is passed through one ring and slipped over the head of the dog. The chain is used to correct unacceptable behavior. When the dog misbehaves, the chain is tugged, which tightens the chain. This serves as a warning signal to your dog.

- Dog Prong collar: The prong collar is constituted by metal links that fit together by interconnecting through long teeth that curve upwards. It consists of a loop of main links that pull the collar tight when it is pulled. It is a correctional dog-training tool that pokes the dog's neck when it is pulled. The prong collar is used predominantly in traditional dog training sessions.

- Dog Electronic collars: The electronic collar is one that releases small currents of electrical impulses to the dog's neck when it isn't acting the way the owner wants it to act. The electrical impulses are controlled by the owner and can be intense or mild. Even the current in its most intense form is not harmful to the dog contrary to what people set against this tool claim. Electronic collars have been used successfully to train many dogs.

-Dog Treats: Dog treats are nothing new to a dog owner, but they are valuable dog training tools. The kind of treat depends on the preferences of the dog and the owner, but as long as they motivate your dog to repeat desirable behavior, they can be anything which your dog likes and is safe for them to eat.

This is not an exhaustive list of dog obedience training equipment in the field as there is a wide array of them available.
