Our dog Copper is the sweetest girl you could ever want, until we get to the park. While she loves people she turns into Cujo around other dogs. She starts to pull and tug relentlessly at her leash. It’s easier for me to control her than Lisa, who usually gets pulled about 10 feet before she can get Copper to a complete stop.

There’s a new training collar on the market by The Canny Company that can totally turn this behavior around making walking your dog fun again. The great thing is that it doesn’t matter the size of your dog, with the collar you will easily be able to regain control.

The Canny Collar
This revolutionary Scottish-designed product is the first dog training collar to give you complete control and good behavior when walking your dog. Simple to fit and easy to use, it tackles the most common dog behavior problem of leash pulling and ensures that within minutes your dog is walking happily by your side. It is a simple piece of dog training equipment made up of a conventional flat collar with a traditional buckle fastening for security. Your leash attaches to a thinner slip line, made from soft yet strong material, which then fits over the nose of your dog.

Unlike other dog walking devices where the leash fastens under the chin, the leash fastens behind your dog’s head – an innovative and unique design in dog behavior training.

Lisa and I have tried a similar collar, the one that attaches under the chin. The collar has made a huge difference, Copper will stop pulling with a simple tug of the leash. The only thing we don’t like is the fact that it fastens below the chin, we’re looking forward to the Canny collar with the fastener behind the head.

When we first started using the collar we noticed people with children and small dogs tended to back away, they thought it was a muzzle. Lately we have spotted more dog walkers using this product and we’ll just look at each other with a knowing look, it isn’t a muzzle but a great training tool.

Do you have problems with your pup pulling or going after other pups? If so, you can be one of 10 lucky Dogsters to win a Canny Collar.
