Myth: You need to use a choke collar to leash train your dog.
Correction: This is wrong and immoral choke collars do exactly what they say they do – they choke your dog and they cut off your dog's ability to breathe! This can do serious damage to your dog!
TIP: In the beginning, the most effective and humane way to train a dog is with a head collar. Similar to a halter for a horse, a dog head collar will give you an easy way to communicate your desire without choking your dog. There are several brands on the market that we go into in the 1 Minute Dog Training Videos.
