Dog training collars for aggressive breeds are used to teach dogs to respond to verbal commands and distract from stimuli that could provoke unwanted behavior, while also controlling aggressive behaviors, such as biting other dogs or humans.
Aggression in dogs may be caused by fear, their instinct to track and kill squirrels or territoriality; to control aggressive dog behaviors effectively it’s best to use positive reinforcement training with consistent obedience programs; however some owners find training collars helpful in controlling aggressive behaviors or stopping fights between two dogs.
There are various training collar options available, such as prong and flat collars. Prong collars feature metal prongs that sit against your dog’s neck, providing strong correction when they pull or display aggressive behavior. Flat collars may be better suited for dogs that become too protective over time of their owners or homes, or need training so they focus on their handler rather than other dogs or people.
Head collars provide another good option, sitting high on your dog’s head and attaching to one of its muzzle straps. This type of collar gives you maximum leverage when controlling an aggressive or powerful animal; additionally, it may prevent biting or jumping behavior. When selecting an aggressive training collar for your canine friend, look for sturdy designs with strength and comfort features as well as proper fitting that prevent choking or slippage of the collar.
