As a foster carer for the Greyhound Adoption Program in South Australia I often get fairly large fairly strong hounds that need to learn lead manners fairly quickly. I found Canny collars a couple of years ago and they were a dream come true! They are easy to fit, they dont spook the hounds, they give me a level of control well above any other device I've tried and the majority of hounds learn to walk calmly on a loose lead whilst wearing it in about 4 weeks, and then progress to calm, loose lead walking without the Canny collar. I recently adopted a really big boy hound with very long legs, he is a delightful fellow but inclined to be very strong on the lead. The Canny Collar gave him the ability to walk calmly at my pace and we both enjoy our walks a lot more. I continue to use it( although his on lead manners have improved a lot) as he's such a strong boy I doubt that I'd be able to control him without the collar if a Kangaroo appeared. Having surrendered the foster collar to him I needed to purchase another one for the next headstrong boy hound and turned immediately to Pet and Vet direct, the almost impossible to walk hound has responded to it so well I was able to walk him without it two weeks after first using it on him.
I am a fan of the Canny Collar having used it successfully on my previous dog. My new puppy hates it so far and struggles to remove it when I put it on him. Hopefully in time he will get used to it,
Our Piccolo was an absolute nightmare to walk. he even pulled my husband over in the street and coming home bruised and bloody threatened rather dire consequences. Saved by a trip to the hardware store, where we met two hearing guide dog trainers with two puppies behaving like little angels. It transpires that the dear shelter dogs were wearing this miracle of "Canny" collars and with the website details we nearly ran out of the store to come home and order one. The downside was the anticipation of waiting for the delivery so we could put it in action. What a transformation. Our darling Piccolo is a darling to walk, a bit skittish to start and then proceeds to trot next to us like a show dog. We could not recommend this "Canny" collar more highly.
Have tried other collars - my dog accepted this one well and walks well too!
"Canny" is the perfect description for this collar! This very clever design ensures that you can gently and safely control any dog that likes to pull on the leash while out walking. Some over-the-nose collars connect to the leash under the chin, which in effect pulls the dog's head to the side. This collar, on the other hand, connects to the leash behind the head, ensuring a much safer point of control.
