Larger dogs, particularly those that tend to pull constantly, can be harder to control with a harness than with a collar, and can end up taking the owner for a walk rather than the other way round, according to some large breed dog handlers. For this reason some long time large breed dog owners prefer to stick with the collar, however, there is the opinion that using a collar on a strong and constant puller can have detrimental effects on the dog’s trachea, neck and spine.
Whatever method you choose, your decision should be based on sound advice from professionals who have the welfare of your dog in mind. One more thing to bear in mind; Whatever conclusion you may arrive at regarding the best way to train and walk your dog, it is hard to argue against using a dog harness when taking your dog in a car. You wear a seat belt to stop you flying through the windscreen in the event of a crash. Your dog will also become a living projectile in the same crash. Doesn’t he deserve the same protection you have?
When a dog exhibits aggressive behavior, like biting, do not use the electronic collar. This kind of behavior is better suited for a professional trainer. And dont use the collar arbitrarily - only when you want to deliver a command you plan on teaching the dog, should you use it. Furthermore, training sessions should be located in places your dog is familiar with and should be short, lasting 10 to 15 minutes long, and positive. A dogs focus should be on the trainer and any good behavior should be rewarded through play or treats. Dont abuse or overuse the electronic collar, as that is animal abuse, a crime that can land you in prison. Remember, a dog is a mans best friend.
