Bonker – This homemade tool, created from a rolled towel and rubber bands, is used as a soft, safe projectile. The tool can be used to startle the dog and break a cycle of whining by throwing the bonker at the dog’s kennel.
Carabiner – In the rare case the dog’s prong collar pops off, the carabiner will keep them safe and attached to their leash. The carabiner attaches to the dead ring on the prong collar (O-shaped ring) and the D-ring on the dog’s flat buckle collar. When on walks, always have them wear both the prong collar and their flat buckle collar.
E-Collar – Also called a remote collar, E-Collar Technologies brand electronic collars use low-level electrical stimulation, paging and vibration to allow handlers to communicate with dogs of all sizes and temperaments. When used correctly, e-collars are the most effective, most humane, most reliable and transformational training tools available today. E-collar contact points and collar straps are selected based on the length and thickness of the dog’s coat. The e-collar receiver should sit high up on the dog’s neck, to the right or left of their trachea.
