1. Dogs Toys over Dog Collars: TheBetter Way to Train Dogs Online Pet Accessories 2. Dog training is quite a science as well as an art. It requires the objective intellect but it doesnt in any way discredit the need for a subjective heart. Over the years, people may have argued whether to use only the simple reward-based training methods, or to also include some corporal punishments. This question has thus extended over to the use of dog toys, representative of rewards, versus dog collars, representative of pain, in disciplining pets. This intriguing subject will thus be explored below. Toys beyond Merely Rewards Essentially, dog toys are not the only rewards which can be granted to dogs whenever theyd do something you can approve of. Food is in fact the most common reward, but in recent years it has been found that food particles taken in outside of regular meals may cause health problems on dogs. So then, toys and other pet supplies have been used as alternative rewards. The effect of giving new toys to dogs for good behavior may appear minimal, but in due time of consistency, it may be thought of as the sweeter way of expressing an affirmation. The effect can be enhanced whenever the owner gives time to play with the dog with the new toy given, rather than simply leave the toy for the dog to spend time on. Overall, the atmosphere created whenever there is a reaffirmation of love from the owner will implant in the dog a deeper motivation to please his master. Collars beyond Merely Pains There are certain collars which are fundamentally made to deliver pain for the purpose of correcting dogs. Much may be said against these electronic or shock collars as they may rather be negative stressors to the pets. Of course, the more basic types of collars do not have to instill so much unnecessary pain on dogs. For instance, while on a walk in the city park, you can effectively use a collar and a leash to guide the dog and prevent him from pulling on you or walking fast ahead. In short, collars do not necessarily mean pain. There are harmless collars and they are in more abundant supply in pet shops.
