One of the most important accessories you can have as a dog owner is a leash and collar. In most areas, they are required in public, and even at home, to ensure that your dog is well behaved. In many cases, Labradors are so well behaved that they don’t require a leash – but they are necessary if you plan on going places. Here are some tips on finding the best leash and collar for your Labrador:
I have heard about very good results from training via shock collar
Ok, so after reading the sticky on best advice, I was so excited to go purchase a pinch/prong collar (btw, are they the same thing?). Anyways, as I was ready to make my purchase, a Petco rep stopped me and discouraged me from hurting my best friend (I WOULD NEVER DO THAT!!!). She even said being that since I've never used one before, it would probably cause injuries and make matters worse. She recommended some other collar that goes around the nose/mouth area and allows me to pull their head forcing them to come back to me when they start pulling...... I didn't want to purchase anything until I confirmed with people I trust and most of all people that love and know the LABRADOR. So I put the collar back and walked out empty-handed feeling bad and confused.
