Humane Tip of the Month!
Think before you buy a pinch or prong collar. The design may be effective in halting a dog who lunges or pulls, but is it really necessary to use discomfort and fear as a means of control? The metal points poke into the neck as the collar tightens. Misuse can cause tissue and tracheal damage, especially with smaller and slimmer breeds. Our Behaviorists are available to suggest different collars, leads and halters that are kinder to your dog when it comes to obedience. Call 650-340-7022 ext. 183.
