Best Collar for dog?

Posted by trinigemini (My Page) on

Right now I use a harness for my bulldog. The reason I started using the harness was because I was afraid of choking her with a regular collar if I put it on too tight, but if it was not tight she would get out of it. The harness just made me feel alot safer walking her on the street. However with a harness I have no control over her. She is a good dog, but sometimes she does not want to walk. I refuse to use a choker or a prong collar. Recently I've been taking her leash and just looping it around her neck and using that to control her and make her walk....of course I still have her harness on because I'm afraid the looped leash is not good enough. Is there a better collar that I should be using?

I would suggest trying a Martingale collar. The benefits of a choke or prong collar, only gentler. Linked below is some information. The collars themselves look just like regular buckle collars.

Weed that is exactly what I was looking for only I could not remember the name. Thanks. The looped leash works well but I have to keep tension on it so that the loop stays. This looks like a great fix. Thanks.
