    Default He hates his collar!!!!

    So, Last week I got Frankie a really nice collar... I decided that at home he could be "naked" and we would only use it when going away so that he will like it... Bad idea.. He hates it.. He hates it at home, in the car, at Petsmart, EVERYWHERE!

    I don't know what to do because I'm worried he is going to create a hot spot because he will just scratch and scratch at it until I give in and take it off... BOOOOOO!! lol

    Try Frankie on a harness. They are much easier for both you and Frankie. But stick with it

    Harness is better because e.b. have a small trakia (so?) Says my vet and collars are not good for them. King harness with traffic loop and matching leash is what I have. It's at petsmart. I've had mine for a year haven't needed a new one yet. When it gets dirty you can toss it in the laundry with ur towels and it's clean. I'd look into it

    No, it's for when we go out. I wanted him to just get used to wearing it when we go somewhere, not necessarily around the house but when we are out. I was told by the person I got him from that a harness was not a good idea because EB's have a lot of strength in their chests so he would just pull me all over... I see now, that was not good advice.. lol

    Well, the breeder is not totally wrong, a harness does help them pull, but if you train them right, they will just walk right next to you (takes some time)

    I used the easy-walker for traiining and then once they knew to stay next to me, I switched to a step-in harness

    Try the collar everyday, a little at a time, and then increase the time the more he gets used to it. Keep it up and before you know it, he will be walking with it.
