FAQs About Dog Training Collars

Training collars are great solutions when working on your dog or puppy training cues and proper behavior when walking. The excitement of the outdoors can make any dog forget their manners—training collars can gently correct pulling, lunging and barking without having to use extreme force, making the walk enjoyable for both you and your dog.

If you’re a new pet parent, it’s important to remember patience is the key. Most dogs are naturally inclined to please you. With a little time and helpful tools, they’ll follow your training cues in no time. Our New Dog Owner Guide can help you learn the basics. Our Dog Care Sheets are also very informative.

In addition to the training collars listed above, Petco also carries electronic dog collars and remote training devices. These emit sounds, sprays or vibrations to correct your dog’s behavior. In addition to training collars, Petco also carries flea and tick collars for dogs, as well as dog calming collars.

Headcollars are a great solution while on walks. You can add gentle tension to the leash when they’re barking, which will cause their head to turn away from the distraction. When it comes to solutions at home, vibrating e-collar dog training may be ideal. We carry models with remotes, so you can manually correct the behavior when needed.
