Supply List for Dogs
The best training collars are link chain collars, commonly called choke collars.
- Jeweler Link Style Training Collar or Show Chain Chrome, 20-Inch - The finer/smaller the link the more "bite" it has to the correction. If you have a dog that is just not listening to you, try a small link collar.
- Titan Prong Training Collar - Link Closure Style - Fine - 14 x 2.0 mm - When you have a dog that is hard-headed, is not listening to you, rather than you keep pulling on him and just teaching him to resist and pull more, try a pinch collar. Do NOT get the big linked collar as they are not as effective in giving the dog a proper correction.
- Coastal Pet Products DCP5591HS, 3-Pack Dog Chain Extra Hook Link, Small, Chrome - Link Closure Style - Fine - 14 x 2.0 mm
All training collars should be used in conjunction with a competent trainer and a training facility. If you have never trained a dog before, please seek out the assistance of a reputable dog trainer.
A properly fitted dog collar is 1" to 2" inches longer than the circumference of the dog's neck (not his head).
Leads and Leashes
The best leads or leashes are made of leather. Leashes made with nylon will burn your hands if your dog pulls you. Chain leashes are a definite no-no as they too could injure you if your dog pulls.
- Signature K9 Braided Leather Leash, 6-Feet by 1/2-Inch, Black - We really love the braided leads as they seem to be made stronger.
- Signature K9 Knot Braided Heavy Leather Leash, 6-Feet by 7/8-Inch, Burgundy - We really love this lead also and highly recommend it.
German Shepherd Dog Safe Toys
- KONG, Extreme Dog Toy, large, black. Great toy for German Shepherd Dogs and older puppies.
