Choking herself on her walk

    Tonka has a 1.5 inch collar and people have been telling me if I get a 2 inch collar it will help keep her from choking herself on her walk. I'm torn between the wider collar or a fleece line harness?

    Also, does anyone know if Stillwater is still up and running?

    The collar really has little to do if the dog pulls when on a leash.
    Instead of buying a new collar, which will not change anything, it would be better to teach the dog not to pull when on a leash.

    Could also ditch the collar when walking and use a harness, won't stop the dog from pulling but it will prevent choking while the dog is pulling. A harness will distribute the weight through the shoulders and chest instead of the throat like a collar does.

    Could teach it to heel too would help.

    Last I knew, as of a few weeks ago, Shane is still operating the kennel supply.

    If your on FB shoot him a DM.

    A good alternative to Stillwater is O’Brian k9 supply. Recently put a couple of ppl on to Shane but they didn’t get a reply.

    I talked to him 2 days ago. Didn't ask about harnesses but needed collars. Was told he is only doing collars for orders of 20 or more at a time.

    O'brians is another good one for sure.

    Hi, She heels most of the time. There is just one dog in the neighborhood that makes her nuts and she searches for his scent in the grass, etc. If she finds it she starts getting nutty. If she finds him she loses her mind. She has never reacted to any dog like this. I guess the dog is really kind of nuts from what other people tell me. It looks like a black lab mix and she even gets really amped up if she sees a black dog that looks like him. The lady who owns him stops and stares at us if we are nearby. She never keeps walking and it has caused all of the dogs to get more amped up. She just stands there facing us and has us pass her. It just makes things so much worse.

    He's got to do what he can manage. I think all the little orders were maybe taking the joy out of his work?
