Canny Collar – Amazing training aid to stop pulling
The Canny Collar is a simple dog training collar designed to stop pulling on the lead and make walking your dog a pleasure.
Comfortable, kind, safe and effective, its revolutionary ‘behind-the-head’ design makes it easy to fit and simple to use, transforming even the worst pullers into happy, well-behaved pets. No wonder the UK Pet Product Retail Association voted it ‘Best New Product’ shortly after it was launched.
As the Canny Collar clips to your dog’s lead behind the head rather than under the chin, this means it will not ride up into your dog’s eyes nor yank his head to one side. It is generously padded for comfort, and the single piece of material over your dog’s nose allows him to breathe freely, open his mouth and enjoy his walk as much as you both want him to. Used and recommended by organisations such as the RSPCA and The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, the Canny Collar is everything you are looking for when wishing to humanely train your dog to walk on a loose lead.
If you’re looking for an easy solution to your dog pulling problems, look no further than the Canny Collar. You’ll be in good company. Since it was launched, more than half a million dog owners worldwide have discovered the simple pleasure of walking their dogs on a loose lead.
How does the Canny Collar work?
The Canny Collar works by using a ‘pressure and release’ system. Put simply, when your dog pulls, he will feel pressure on the bridge of his nose, and when he doesn’t pull, there is no pressure. By keeping your arm by your side and allowing the Canny Collar to do any corrective work, you can then give your dog positive praise when he is walking calmly by your side, thereby encouraging walking on a loose lead. Your dog will soon learn that by walking calmly by your side and not pulling ahead, the walk will be more comfortable for both of you.
Why is the Canny Collar different from other head collars?
Firstly, the Canny Collar fastens behind the head rather than under the chin.
The immediate benefit of this is that there is no yanking your dog’s head to one side or riding up into his eyes. When you are positioned below an animal (such as a horse), it would make sense to lead it from under the chin. However, the horse rider will control the horse from behind the head, which makes more sense if you are above the animal. This is why the Canny Collar is unique amongst dog training collars. Secondly, the Canny Collar is a dog training collar rather than a dog restraining collar. It can be quickly and easily switched into a regular dog collar and lead by alternately flicking the slip line on and off your dog’s nose. By doing this, you can use the Canny Collar like a ‘dog training lead’ eventually training your dog to walk on a conventional flat collar.
Measure your dog’s neck
To ensure your Canny Collar fits accurately and is safe to use when walking your dog, take a tape and measure around your dog’s neck snugly, to just behind the ears. Then, choose the correct size Canny Collar for your dog using the following measurements. If your dog’s neck measurement falls exactly between two sizes, our experience shows that the best option is normally to choose the smaller of the two sizes to ensure a good fit.
