The Canny Collar is a simple dog training collar and the best collar for dogs that pull. It is designed to help train your dog to walk without pulling so that walking your dog is a pleasure, not a stressful or embarrassing experience.
Comfortable, kind, safe and effective, the Canny Collar’s innovative ‘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 Guide Dogs For The Blind and Ability Dogs Canada, 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 pulling dog 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.
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.
When walking, if your dog pulls, apply pressure and then immediately relax the lead. It’s important that your dog knows that the pressure is released when he is in the desired position by your side, with the lead loose. When the lead is loose, he will feel no pressure at all on his face and will be able to open his mouth, breathe and pant.
By keeping your arm by your side and allowing the Canny Collar to do any corrective work, you can praise or reward your dog 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.
Positively reinforce the experience when your dog is walking with vocal praise and/or his favourite treat.
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.
