Choke Chain Dog Collars
Choke Chain Dog Collars are great for training and comfortable to wear, despite the awful name!
These dog collars are simply created from a long piece chain with a metal ring attached at each end, that is fed through the ring to form a loop.
A Choker chain is used in dog training sessions to discourage undesirable behaviors such as pulling when walking on the leash.
It's easy to fit this collar on incorrectly, which can cause you to accidentally choke your dog if it is silly enough to keep pulling while you walk on leash.
You just have to make sure that when you slide it over your dog's head, it hangs LOOSELY on the dogs neck when the leash is let hang down.
The choker action only happens when you snap the leash and jerk back, so that the dog is stopped from the dragging behavior. Then you verbally reward your dog as he walks at Heel, beside you.
You should only use this form of collar for training if you are attending dog training classes, or have access to an experienced dog handler to show you the correct way to fit the choke chain and make sure that the fit is appropriate, but not tight.
I like this collar for dogs because you can attach their tags to it for easy identification, grab the dog by it in an emergency, and the chain just sits loose on their neck like a necklace, with no rubbing or sweating from bigger leather or fabric collars.
It is very comfortable and the dog will hardly ever scratch it or show any of the signs of discomfort that you usually see with dogs wearing the common dog collars.
This has only proven to be unsuitable to dogs that have such thick necks that the chains slip over their head and fall off whenever the dog lowers their head.
They have no choice but to wear tighter fitting leather or fabric collars to be able to grip them in an emergency and to display their registration tags 24/7
So ignore the awful name, and see if your dog is suited to the comfort of a choker chain instead of a collar.
