Dog Training Collar : What is it?

Dog Training Collars

A dog training collar is specifically designed to be used for training dogs and putting them under control. They are tougher and more durable than standard dog collars. They facilitate in obedience training, enabling dogs to learn the basic dog commands such as sit, stand, stay, jump, and roll over. They are made of durable materials such as leather, nylon, and metal.
