Put on a Pitbull Collar or Is Pitbull Harness Better?

Regarding pitbull collars their choice is very large: fixing (collars with a buckle), halters, correction pitbull collars and leashes resembling a horse harness. Your choice of a pit bull collar must depend on the pitbull's character, its strength and level of training. A well-trained pitbull of any size will feel comfortable wearing a buckle collar – the main thing is that it does not press strongly on the pitbull's neck by the tension. This collar for all pitbulls must have a label that contains information about pitbull’s vaccination, about permission on pitbull keeping and also all identification data must be present on this label. This type of pit bull collar is usually all you need for small and large pitbulls training.

One advises to use a halter for highly energetic or timid pitbulls that rush forward or show aggression towards other pitbulls or people. This humane device for pitbull training is based on the same mechanism that allows people to manage large horses – the head is controlled and the body follows after it. While most pitbulls behave as if they were stung by a bee, when you first put on it a halter or a muzzle, soon they get used to the new sensation of the nylon strip over the bridge of the nose and become more manageable. Although pitbull halter is not a pitbull, but it allows better to control the pitbull's mouth than a usual collar.

The correcting pit bull collar, which is also called  pit bull choke collar - is tightened when the pitbull  tears ahead from the owner or if the owner pulls the leash in  order to draw pitbull's attention. The efficiency of such collar is determined by the level of tactile sensitivity and pet’s vigor. But do not forget to put the collar off the pitbull when it is no longer needed. Very many pitbulls suffocate annually when the owners let them play with other pitbulls or walk near the house with corrective collar.

These pit bull collars also affect the spinal cord of pitbulls that can lead to the manifestation of irritability and aggression by some pitbulls. Keep this in mind!

If your pitbull needs special conditions for training, if there is a risk of pit bull tracheal compression or by fits of coughing, it is better to use the pitbull harness. Harnesses are of two types: special and regular.

The wrongly chosen leash for pitbull and collar can hurt your pitbull and hinder the process of training. Take the time to find the right accessories for pitbull training taking into account its specific features and then the walk with a four-legged friend will be the most peaceful moment of your day
