cute little flower bow tie collar #bostonterrier

I have an 8 month old Boston Terrier. He weighs approx. 32 lbs. I had a trainer when he was 6 months old to help us walk him as he was pulling something awful. He is so strong that it hurts my hand and shoulders. I feel like I am constantly jerking the choke chain and he just doesn't get it. He had 6 lessons and seemed to be doing okay. As soon as the trainer left us, he gradually got worse. I feel like I am doing exactly what I was told and this little guy just won't listen. He got so bad that we got a prong chain and it really works. Problem is, it is horrendous looking and I feel so bad. What do you all think about this type of collar. It seems to be the only solution I have left other than calling the trainer back and paying him again. Thank you. Annette Think about it. 1. When you correct with a choke collar jerking on collar actually chokes the dog. A prong collar adjusted properly when jerked upon closes only to the circumference of the neck not choking the dog. 2. The corrections due to the prongs actually can be lighter. I tell people that it's like power steering, easier on the dog and easier on the owner doing the work. My experience with the gentle leader collar is that due to the short nose would be tough to keep it on. I guess you will have to make the choice of sore hand or a bad looking collar. Nobody can help you there.

General Appearance
The Boston Terrier is a lively, highly intelligent, smooth coated, short-headed, compactly built, short-tailed, well balanced dog, brindle, seal or black in color and evenly marked with white. The head is in proportion to the size of the dog and the expression indicates a high degree of intelligence.

The strap over the dog’s nose runs through a ring below his snout. When he pulls, this strap tightens and tugs his head down, and the neck strap puts pressure on the back of his neck, rather than the front (much safer). In combination, this collar prevents pulling, aids in teaching your dog to sit (the leader pulls his head up, which naturally guides him into position), and provides control over your dog without any pressure on his neck. People often mistake these for muzzles, but they do not in ANY way restrict your dog’s use of his mouth. Gentle Leaders are very effective, but unfortunately don’t work for dogs with shorter snouts (Boston Terriers, Mastiffs, etc.).

Why Won’t My Boston Terrier Listen To Me? This is a common question that most first-time Boston Terrier owners ask me. Before I answer your question, let me ask you a few instead: Do you use cookies, collars, head halters or clickers to make your Boston Terrier listen to your commands? Do you have to […]
