    DefaultCollars

    I was going to order Oscar a new collar from CozyCritters, but it asks which kind of collar you want.

    So I pose this question to all of JL...

    Whats the difference (Martingale,Flyball,Clipchoke,ect.)
    If you dont mind, maybe putting a picture with the description and any opinions/advice if you have them, all suggestions are welcome. Thanks again.

    Martingales are good for dogs who have a tendency to slip out of their collars.

    Prongs are to aid with training a dog to walk on a loose leash. That said, you can train a dog to walk on a loose leash without any training aids.

    Chokes are for corrections. They are unnecessary for most dogs and are not suitable for puppies. Misuse of a choke chain can cause neck trauma.

    I'm no expert, but if you didn't know the difference between the collars, you should probably stick with a flat collar and work on training the dog without the aid of a collar at first

    So I am curious, what is a flyball collar? (other than one they use when competing in flyball).

    Also never heard of a clipchoke? (unless it is the clip prong shown)

    flyball collars have a loop for you to hold onto the dog at the starting line (or grab the dog afterwards). It's a flat collar (meaning not martingale or or slip).

    Wesley's collar is one of these from J&J:



    But it's black. I love it. It's been around for years and he's a handsome devil when wearing it, if I do say so myself.

    That is such a great picture of you two. I hope you have it framed.
